Skip to comments.Potentially explosive development in IRS scandals
Posted on 07/05/2013 11:09:10 AM PDT by jazusamo
One of the most important and so-far least noted threads in the IRS sandal cloth is the inexplicable remark made by Austan Goolsbee, at the time the Chairman of the White Council of Economic Advisors about the taxes paid by the Koch brothers - arch villains in the Manichean delusions of the American left - that would require his knowledge of their confidential tax returns. Did the White House senior staff illegally browse through the tax records of their political enemies? The Washington Free Beacon has been trying to find out, and uncovered an interesting response:
CJ Ciaramella reports:
The Treasury Department on Wednesday refused to confirm or deny the existence of an inspector general report investigating whether or not former White House economic adviser Austan Goolsbee illegally accessed tax information on the Koch brothers.
The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by the Washington Free Beacon, declined to acknowledge the existence of the report.

Another one? How many ‘explosives’ do we have before they ticket the door and do and end to end audit, housecleaning.
News not covering this ongoing IRS investigation. I just saw this: Liberal nonprofit that pressed Shulman to target conservatives houses his wifes group
I hear you, it’s long overdue.
The arrogant, self-entitled Obamatons surely went ballistic. Does not take much imagination to know the WH con artists were thinking up demonic ways to stop the Tea Partiers who stood in their path.
SIGNIFICANT Remember that when the Obamatons landed in the WH, they also took over the census. So when Obama sent his COS---Rahm Emanuel----to takeover Treasury, he had all the tools at his disposal to target individuals, tea parties, patriot groups, and so on.
CONNECTING THE DOTS: Obama's stranglegold on Treasury via COS Rahm Emanuel's dual role
THE TARGETING PAPER TRAIL BEGINS: Soon as they occupied the WH, Obama and the Chicago con artists (a) took control of the US Census; (b) Obama placed his COS Rahm Emanuel in control of the US Dept of the Treasury (the IRS).
THE SMOKING GUN---WSJ REPORT--On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the Obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move.
When he got to Treasury, WH COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings of the Treasury that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials.

Contact Congress Toll Free 1-(866) 220-0044 : All of the Treasury factotums doing Rahm's bidding need to be identified and brought before Congress to testify under oath. We need to know the specifics WRT Emanuel's activities at Treasury including dates and times when Emanuel consorted w/ the IRS.
MOMENTS TO REMEMBER Obama was fond of saying "Tea Parties are a threat to democracy."
Obama told hispanics, " we will reward our friends and punish our enemies."
Valerie Jarrett ominously warned, they "would not forget" which Americans did not worship Obama.
Contact Congress Toll Free 1-(866) 220-0044---Taxpayers demand Congress call govt employees at Treasury (IRS), who were underlings of Obama COS Rahm Emanuel...to testify under oath, including the number of times Emanuel consorted with the IRS. The WJS reported Emanuel's unusual arrangement----his dual role as WH COS and Treasury head.

Good job Baraq.
No. I think Lifson’s onto something important. If it can be proved that Obama illegally used IRS files (like doing political oppo research, blackmailing people, or looking for donors) then the whole IRS scandal could blow wide open.
Goolsbee might be the rock we can turn over to find out the extent of it. Goolsbee is an Obama hack from way back. He advised Omeba during his senate race, worked on his first presidential election campaign, and is the senior economic policy advisor. He’s knee deep in the Obama/Jarrett cabal.
This could be a game changer.
This little assertion is a LIE:
“there is no public interest that outweighs the privacy interests established and protected by the FOIA (5 U.S.C. §§ 552(b)(7)(C) and (b)(6))”
Whether a government official was ILLEGALLY in possession of a third party’sTax information IS NOT protected by the above cited U.S.C.!!!!
I hope you’re correct on that, it’s for sure that Treasury nor Goolsbee want to talk about this.
Amen to that.
I agree completely, the Act was made to cover up criminal behavior.
The attention span for the American low info voter has long passed. With America’s got no talent going on and the fall season of Dancing with the Kardashians coming it is time to move on.
He would be a candidate for Arkancide before he ever said a word.
You think he’s the one got Ryan’s divorce records unsealed?
Has the FBI even bothered assigning anyone to this investigation? Or is the FBI and IRS joined at the hip in their hatred of Obama’s political opposition?
Really, has the FBI talked to ONE Tea Party person? Eff ‘em.
I’d sure like to know what’s been said about this between Holder and the FBI Director.
Just how many felonies were committed is a mystery, as is who committed this one.
But it was a pretty obvious statement by the regime that when the head of the FBI testified before congress about the IRS investigations, he didn't know how many agents had been assigned, or even who was in charge of the investigation.
He had to know he was going to be asked. He was saying that we have no intention of investigating any crimes committed by the IRS. His response was to effectively drop his trousers, pull out his pockets, and tell the members to "kiss the bunny on the nose!"
