House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) slammed the White House Tuesday morning for completely failing to cooperate with, much less assist in, the IRS scandal investigation.

"When you look at the president, his own remarks when this IRS scandal unfolded almost a year ago, he said that he would fully cooperate, he and his administration. They’ve not only not fully cooperated, they haven’t done a damn thing to help us get to the truth of what really happened."

The statement came after IRS Commissioner John Koskinen appeared for a second time before a congressional oversight committee Monday. Boehner stated the commissioner should be treated with respect, before pointing to the Obama administration's absence.
