Embattled IRS chief counsel met with Obama 2 days before writing new targeting criteria
The Daily Caller ^ | July 22, 2013 | Patrick Howley

Posted on 07/22/2013 7:41:24 AM PDT by upbeat5

The Obama appointee implicated in congressional testimony in the IRS targeting scandal met with President Obama in the White House two days before offering his colleagues a new set of advice on how to scrutinize tea party and conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.

IRS chief counsel William Wilkins, who was named in House Oversight testimony by retiring IRS agent Carter Hull as one of his supervisors in the improper targeting of conservative groups, met with Obama in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on April 23, 2012. Wilkins’ boss, then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, met with Obama on April 24, 2012, according to White House visitor logs.

Gee, those two rogue IRS agents who did all the bad stuff were even able to get the high level IRS people and Obama to meet and create plans for harassment. Those two rogue agents were the most effective employees in the history of the federal government.

Sure: Anyone with common sense knows where this crap came from.

Won’t matter. People died in Fast & Furious, so that Obama could say America was supplying illegal guns to Mexico.
Ambassador Stevens and 3 others died trying to make a deal over guns in Benghazi. Didn’t matter.
Zimmerman was found not guilty and Obama is still trying to hang him.
Nothing matters to this pigment immune Zero we have in the White House now.

We is in Charge now.

I think the House is doing a good job of working up the ladder on this. And now it looks like the ladder might go all the way to the top. And if it does, it will finally be worth it for Issa to negotiate some immunity for testimony.

I’ll bet he’s already negotiating with attorneys for Wilkins and Schulman.

As an individual taxpayer who supported conservative causes, I am absolutely certain that I have been targeted by the IRS. As I have said several times before, one entire wall of the office in which I was audited was covered with pictures of black Marxists. After being audited for 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010, we had to pay for a bookkeeping mistake that WE pointed out to the IRS officer. We prevailed on the rest, but at what a price.

WHY DOESN’T THE REPUBLICAN PARTY TAKE ON THE PRESIDENT AND THE IRS?

More election tampering by 0bama. And if 0bama wants to have a conversation on race, someone please tell him that if he were white, he'd be wearing an orange jump suit right now. 0bama wants America to understand the difficulties blacks face while at the same time watch HIM get away with one IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE after another? NO THANKS!!

When is this guy going to run out of 'Get out of jail' cards?? ENOUGH ALREADY!!!

The left decided to eliminate its enemies. I saw that. It was obvious. Since the left has no morals or ethics, they had no problem using the full power of the government against their enemies.
This is fascism.

If you read the article you will find this item:

"Wilkins’ meeting with Obama on April 23 was attended by 13 people."

Does anyone believe that the subject of extra scrutiny of Tea Party applications would come up at a meeting attended by Obama and 13 others?

A Smoking Gun? I don't think so. But then again, it would be nice to hear what the 13 attendees have to say in private sessions with Trey Gowdy.

Time for some clever Freeper to dig up that Attendees List. Maybe it was Wilkins, Lerner, Biden, Dragon Lady, ...

Larry Sinclair is just another former “actor” in Obama’s past. This one has to deal with cocaine use and gay sex. He came forward after Donald Young who was a gay member of Trinity United Church was murdered.

The most recent one to try and be a Woodward or Berstein died in a firey car incident in LA. The engine and transmission of his Mecedes were blown 100 yards away from the car which burnted up. FBI were immediately on the scene ... to make sure the incident ended his try at being a Woodward or Berstein?

This assumes he wrote it instantaneously. I personally suspect he wrote a draft or three over the course of the two days after he met with the one. Two days would be about right to get it all polished up after he got his marching orders.
