IRS lawyer says scandal was overseen by D.C., names names
Daily Caller ^ | 7/17/13 | Patrick Howley

Posted on 07/17/2013 8:16:48 PM PDT by Nachum

Top IRS officials in Washington, D.C. planned and oversaw the agency’s improper targeting of conservative groups, according to the 72-year old retiring IRS lawyer who will testify Thursday before the House Oversight Committee.

Retiring IRS lawyer Carter C. Hull implicated the IRS Chief Counsel’s office, headed by Obama appointee William J. Wilkins, and Lois Lerner, the embattled head of the IRS’ exempt organizations office, in the IRS targeting scandal and made clear that the targeting started in Washington, according to leaked interviews that Hull granted to the Oversight Committee in advance of Thursday’s hearing.

Treasury Inspector General J. Russell George will return to Republican chairman Darrell Issa’s committee Thursday along with two central characters in the IRS saga: Hull and Cincinnati-based IRS employee Elizabeth Hofacre, who previously gave Hull’s name to congressional investigators, fingering him as her Washington-based supervisor.

Until I see someone in jail I will continue to believe the GOP will let this get swept under the rug like every thing else. For crying out load no one is in jail for fast and furious yet and people died. A lot of people died.

So much for rouge employees in the Cincinnati office.

Of course the instructions to break the law came from Obama the queen b*tch Valerie Jarrett.

Impeached by the House? Possibly.

Convicted by the Senate with Hasshole Reid in charge? Zero chance.

Sadly, the left cares nothing about facts. We’ve seen it this week with the Zimmerman trial. Their radical leaders spout lies and bogus info to manipulate their base, and like lemmings, they follow blindly.

No matter what is found with this IRS abuse, no matter how egregious, the left will stand by their dude. We should...and must...go after them anyway. If nothing else, we can hopefully weaken the left and bolster our weak leadership in DC so they shut down whatever the left if pushing for the remainder of this administration.

Not necessary. No one's been charged or put in jail over any of the Obama Administration Scandals so far.

‘Rouge’?

Can I be honest?

Is the president not responsible for those in the federal government? Why has Obama not had to guts to resign in face of multiple damaging national historic scandals. Scandals so corrupt and so bad, people have actually died.

It make ya wonder why the honorable, if there are any left in government, have not forcible removed him from office.

The scandal ridden president, who describes himself as black, has his skinny fingers in all these pies.

The actions of this administration reflect a life long dream of these people.

Wouldn’t really expect anyone to go to jail. Pretty much everyone in DC hates or fears the Tea Party. However, this could come down hard on IRS involvement with Obamacare.

The letter and transcripts provided in the article are very enlightening....Lerner and her cronies demanded that Hull send up "test case" applications to her office for review, which were then up to date. She then sat on them for months, and when she finally responded, she came back and said that they were now outdated and that she needed more information (as the election drew near). Hull was then ordered to send out new "development letters" requesting the new updated information, at which point the cycle started over.

She deliberately created the logjam and put TEA Party applicants in an impossible, never-ending bureaucratic circle.

This is Soviet stuff, and she needs to go to jail!

Nope. He told us himself that it's just too big for him to fully oversee. Oh, and we should make it bigger, too.
