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.

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!
Very similar operation to THIS:
Popcorn is in stock and ready to go down the hatch.
Just more witnesses that could no longer take the 5th. With the additional testimony, a wider net can be cast.
Nope. He told us himself that it's just too big for him to fully oversee. Oh, and we should make it bigger, too.
Wait a minute. What??

Did Faux News recently give Bob a fat contract with a big salary?

It’s a national office in Cincinnati. From the start they wanted people to think this was distant from Washington.
That was going to be my comment - find some intern to blame it on. You know things are bad when the jokes not only write themselves but they bear more truth than any official explanation.
Please. If he was the head of any business, his shareholders would have kicked his ass out a LONG time ago...if not for the self-confessed ineptitude IE: “I found out from the papers”, let alone for the scandals under his watch.
Heh.. it went by so fast I'm not surprised you missed it.
There was a hearing a few weeks ago that went like this:
LOIS LERNER: "I did nothing wrong and now I am invoking my 5th amendment right to not answer any further questions."
DARRYL ISSA: "Well, okay then. The witness is dismissed and this hearing is concluded. Drive safely everybody."
EVERYBODY ELSE: "WTF..??"
Issa couldn't get Lerner out of there fast enough, as if he was afraid she might implicate Ubama or something. It was surreal. Trey Gowdy jumped out of his seat like, Issa, are you insane? You should have seen it. And now Lerner is gone and she'll never be back. It was after seeing that hearing that I figured Issa must be filthy dirty.
I was thinking more like a coup d’état. It’s what the honorable do when their governments become corrupt and unsalvageable. I would guess there are not enough honorable left in government to do this.
Maybe, but as Rush says, there’s no need for instructions, coordination, or orders.
These people all think alike, and know that they’ll be covered by other fellow travelers if they get caught.
...and even if 100% true. If it is all 100% proven and confessions abound.
Holder will block everything.
series? rouge? this is hugh.
