IRS officials thought Obama wanted crackdown on tea party groups, worried about negative press
Wash Times ^

Posted on 09/18/2013 5:38:47 AM PDT by Perdogg

If true that’s a federal crime.

That may have been true in the past but we live in different times. If you go ahead and charge me with a crime, then I’ll see to it that a pile of dirt is unloaded upon you. People in Washington are not inclined to be too harsh on one another. They are all compromised so best to tread lightly.

they had to walk back or change history to accomodate what he was supposed to not say.

It must get a little tiresome having to do this so often. But the press and all the media information sources are such willing assistants that they can make things vanish in a flash.

So, Obama is allowed to have his Organizing for Action group- a tax exempt 501(c)(4)- but any organization with "anti-Obama rhetoric" will be targeted under the implicit knowing gaze of the president...

Welcome to the police state.

Thats why it used to be typical to hold those at the top responsible for crimes regardless of the paper trail.

Unless of course those at the top are from the protected political class.

We are headed down a very very dangerous path.

Agree. Political corruption, no societal standards, moral decay, and economic proflagcy. Not looking good at all.

I hope this is grounds for impeachment!

AND grounds for abandoning the IRS, and rewriting the tax code.

Boner will never allow the historic first young "smartest ever" black and white pResident to be impeached. His spine is made of jelly.

The only answer for this is a few perp walks on the 6 o’clock news. If a few go to prison, you will find whistle blowers will fight to the front of the line to tell on their boss forcing them to persecute political entities. I can’t believe there have been no arrests, not even a firing, yet on this scandal. Can you imagine the scandal if a Repub went after Soros, ACLU, or Naral?

Every MSM outlet in the USA would be writing articles of outrage if the IRS - under a Republican President - had done this to liberal groups.

Shame on the press ...

One of the articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon concerned his misuse of the IRS to target political enemies. And that misuse pales in scope and scale in comparison to what Obama and his minions have done. Conservatives should be trumpeting that fact from every rooftop.

How about sending arms to terror groups, is that impeachable?
