On "Morning Joe" Tuesday this morning, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell delivered a strong reaction to the news that the IRS targeted Tea Party groups beginning in 2011, calling it “one of the most outrageous excesses I’ve seen in all my years in journalism.”

Mitchell explained that Americans have to understand that their tax returns are private, especially since the Richard Nixon era.

“The fact they went after the Tea Party here, as David said earlier, feeds the Republican critics, and this is one of the most outrageous excesses I’ve seen in all my years in journalism,” Mitchell said.
