Doug Shulman, the IRS and The White House??

May 31, 2013

This story is gaining more traction.  I mentioned the story here and here.  Last night Bill O’Reilly highlighted the issue concerning Doug Shulman, the head of the Internal Revenue Service while the IRS was TARGETING conservative groups.  This recap is from the Daily Caller:

“Is there now a smoking gun in the IRS scandal?” O’Reilly said. “That is the subject of this evening’s ‘Talking Points Memo.’ We do expect criminal charges to be leveled against some people working in the IRS because they abused their power by targeting conservative groups and individuals. But the major question remains unanswered: Did the campaign of intimidation come from the White House? Well, today, there is disturbing information. This man, former IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, visited the White House — ready — 157 times. Incredible. By comparison then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went to the White House 43 times. Then-CIA Director Leon Panetta: 20 times. So what the heck was Mr. Shulman doing the White House with that kind of frequency?

The TARGETING, if it was not started in the White House, was AT LEAST KNOWN ABOUT in the White House, and anyone that denies this is delusional.  I’m still leaning toward this program started in the White House.  It might not have been done by Obama (but it also could have been), but I believe it very easily could have been Rahm, Jarrett, Axelrod, Geithner, Plouffe, etc.

Grab some popcorn, this is going to take a while….
