Top IRS officials in Washington, D.C. planned and oversaw the agencys 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 Counsels 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 Thursdays hearing.
Treasury Inspector General J. Russell George will return to Republican chairman Darrell Issas committee Thursday along with two central characters in the IRS saga: Hull and Cincinnati-based IRS employee Elizabeth Hofacre, who previously gave Hulls name to congressional investigators, fingering him as her Washington-based supervisor.

...the bouncing ball.
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.
They will get promotions and a raise.
Can’t be...Obama said he found out about it on the news like most of us did!
Obama: If true, IRS scandal is outrageous
The democrats have a real dilemma on their hands now don’t they?
Better put that Chief Counsel of the IRS into the witness protection program before he’s struck down with a severe case of Chicagocide.
“So much for rouge employees in the Cincinnati office.”
We know that Bath House Barry sometimes ‘goes full rouge, but weren’t we discussing rogue employees?
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.
Gosh gee willikers. Never would have suspected.
They were all Mexicans and border guards. Nobody famous./s
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.
msm ignores it
a hearing with nothing it - like an Issa hearing
Bob Beckel will just SPEW LIES like he always does.....WITH HIS NOSE RUNNING....he’s DISGUSTING to watch!
When did he give Lois Lerner a PASS??
Popcorn for breakfast , lunch , and dinner!
Ping me to the LIVE thread
Jarrett gets verbal orders from Zero. Then she issues verbal orders. So I don't see it even getting back to her.
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.
