White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said Sunday the question of whether any laws were broken in the Internal Revenue Scandal is "irrelevant" to the fact that the agency's actions were wrong and unjustifiable.
Stephanopoulos replied: "You don’t really mean the law is irrelevant, do you?"
Pfeiffer responded: "What I mean is, whether it’s legal or illegal is not important to the fact that the conduct doesn’t matter. The Department of Justice has said that they’re looking into the legality of this. The president is not going to wait for that. We have to make sure it does not happen again, regardless of how that turns out."
