Second District Congressman Tim Griffin (R) has questions for the Internal Revenue Service and on Friday (May 17) he’ll get his chance.

Former acting Commissioner Steven Miller is set to testify before the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday. He resigned on Thursday after an earlier in the week controversy revealed that the IRS targeted nonprofits aligned with conservative political causes.

Michael Hibblen with our content partner, KUAR-FM 89 News, interviews Griffin and reports:

“There are a lot of facts yet to be determined and a lot of questions that folks are going to have about who knew what and when did they know it and what actions were taken. I think this is just the beginning of getting to the bottom of this,” Griffin said.

Miller resigned Wednesday after President Obama demanded he step down. That was followed Thursday by news that the head of the agency’s tax exempt and government entities division will retire next month.

Ahead of Friday’s hearing, Griffin said he’s not going to prejudge the situation.

“I think before we can determine what should happen, in terms of who gets fired and potentially prosecuted, depending on the facts, we’ve got to figure out exactly what happened.”
