<...”Jay Sekulow (L) says his American Center for Law and Justice will sue the IRS if it doesn’t grant tax-exempt status to 27 tea party groups ‘by Friday’.
‘The IRS’s assertion that this scheme was launched by a couple of rogue employees in the Cincinnati office is absurd,’ Sekulow said. His organization represents 27 tea party organizations, all of which were targeted, he said, with partisan attacks.
‘To suggest that a couple of low-level employees decided to launch this unprecedented conduct of intimidation does not square with the facts,’ he added. “....>
( Both Lois Lerner..(who leads the IRS division that evaluates and monitors tax-exempt organizaations.).... and Shulman will testify in a house Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on May 22.)
Note:....On March 2012, Douglas Shulman, (then the IRS Commissioner), testified before the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Oversight... that the tax agency did not investigate organizations differently according to their political ideologies.....
<....”As you know, we pride ourselves in being non-political, non-partisan organization,”... Shulman said then. ...”There is absolutely no political targeting”...>
(From the article)
Nothing will happen to the rogue operatives.
They have already been disciplined... With promotions and benefits.
This government is rotten to its core. Civil War looms. Maybe not in my lifetime, but it’s coming.
It was asked before, of another president.
P. S. Cruz or Issa.
So identify and fire these “low level employees”. Prosecute them. It could be that it is near impossible to fire a Federal worker in the IRS
And if prosecuted they rat out their superiors who directed them.
Sure just a couple of rogue employees...they must have been very busy to process the hundreds of applications and of course had absolutely no supervision. To believe that story would be to recognize that the IRS leadership is totally incompetent and should be sacked.
“Two rogue individuals alright. Hussein &Holder”
Right. And Valerie Jarrett is very likely in the mix as well.
This is not the action of 2 people in one office, this was happening all over the country.
Where is the yeah sure girl giff?
One person engaged in improper conduct could be described as a “rouge employee” but two people working together engaged in improper conduct is a “conspiracy”. Engaging in a conspiracy is usually more serious.
They were promised future benefits. Holder will block all prosecution of law.
The only way these people go to jail is with a special prosecutor.
Special prosecutor. This situation is screaming for it.
It appears that this all began shortly after Obama's State of the Union speech in 2010 when he denounced the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court. Either he let it be known that the agencies should find a way to accomplish what his lawsuit had failed to accomplish, or a lot of people in the IRS were good at reading his mind.
I'll enjoy hearing what Woodward and Bernstein have to say about this one. Just like old times.
Well, at least Obama can still count on CNN.
That’s the one!
Who is she?
2013 Oscar winner for Best Actress — Jennifer Lawrence.
Where is the “Smells Like Bull$hit” housewife with the spray can? That image is perfect for this thread.
