Skip to comments.Noonan: A Bombshell in the IRS Scandal
Posted on 07/19/2013 4:58:22 AM PDT by opentalk
The IRS scandal was connected this week not just to the Washington officethat had been establishedbut to the office of the chief counsel.
That is a bombshellsuch a big one that it managed to emerge in spite of an unfocused, frequently off-point congressional hearing in which some members seemed to have accidentally woken up in the middle of a committee room, some seemed unaware of the implications of what their investigators had uncovered, one pretended that the investigation should end if IRS workers couldn't say the president had personally called and told them to harass his foes, and one seemed to be holding a filibuster on Pakistan.
Still, what landed was a bombshell. And Democrats know it. Which is why they are so desperate to make the investigation go away. They know, as Republicans do, that the chief counsel of the IRS is one of only two Obama political appointees in the entire agency.
The IRS chief counsel is named William Wilkins. And again, he is one of only two Obama political appointees in the IRS.

Harry Reid had Mitt Romney’s tax returns!
The republican leadership will make this go away. They have no backbone, starting at the very top, Rep Bonehner and all those around him.
I think Wilkins should be imprisoned for life. Personally, I’m not above the death penalty, either. This is treason as a most basic level.
We had a lot of folks on the Live Thread of the hearing who were predicting that nothing would come out of this. I understand that it’s not moving as fast as it does in a two hour movie.
There are a LOT of rocks to turn over.
IRS corruption bump for later........
IRS being used as a political tool.... Implications are far reaching with Obamacare on the horizon.
Look, it is Treyvon Martin all the time 24/7. Nothing to see here, move along.
"I don't know what to dooooo, *sniff sniff* the pres pres president will be angry with meeeeeee"
Republicans won’t push anything. They don’t like upsetting the Democrats.
Whoa, Peggy---Obama is dirctly connected. MOF, Obama had his very Chi/mobster at Treasury (controlling the IRS).
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). Read on.
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. Reported by WSJ / 05/31/09

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.

marxist media pushing Treyvon to keep the treason of Benghazi and IRS off front page.
Lapdogs/Guard-dogs just doing their job...
he worked directly for Obie
Is it really a “bombshell” if no one is surprised?
Gee, Peggy, guess your boy Obama isn’t so great after all?
It won’t touch Obama. Nothing touches Obama. He is “black.”
The republican leadership will make this go away. They have no backbone
Republicans never really play to win. There are a couple of fighers in the party but they are largely outnumbered by confused and unprincipled appeasers who are always looking for ways to “compromise” with the deceitful Dems.
You’re right, the Republican “leadership” will cave on this like they do with everything else. They are only good at one thing: snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Agree. These people need to be put on trial.
Good post. That is what passes for leadership in the Republican party.
