Skip to comments.Most powerful White House Obamacare official at center of IRS scandal
Posted on 10/14/2013 7:48:43 AM PDT by Hotlanta Mike
The White House official who exchanged confidential taxpayer information with the IRS is a longtime Obama advisor and progressive activist who is currently the most powerful official on Obamacare implementation within the White House.
Jeanne Lambrew, deputy assistant to the president for health policy, entered Obama-world in 2008 as a health-policy adviser to then-Senator Obamas presidential campaign. She was subsequently named deputy director and then director of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) now-defunct Office of Health Reform, where she reported directly to Kathleen Sebelius.
Lambrews current deputy assistant to the president position, while modest-sounding, gives her extensive and centralized power over the White Houses efforts to implement Obamacare.

You mean... in a sane world they would. In THIS WORLD, they will get a promotion and probably a Nobel Peace Prize.
Embattled IRS official Sarah Hall Ingram made 155 visits to the White House to meet with a top Obama White House official with whom she exchanged confidential taxpayer information over email.
Of Ingrams 165 White House meetings with White House staff, a staggering 155 of them were hosted by deputy assistant to the president for health policy Jeanne Lambrew, according to a June Watchdog.Org analysis of White House visitor records.
Ingram exchanged confidential taxpayer information with Lambrew and White House health policy advisor Ellen Montz, according to 2012 emails obtained by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. (RELATED: White House, IRS exchanged confidential taxpayer info)
The White House recently took down visitor logs recording details of these meetings, citing the government shutdown.
Ingram headed the scandal-plagued IRS office that oversaw tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012, when she left to take over the IRS office in charge of Obamacare implementation.
Former IRS Exempt Organizations division director Lois Lerner, who apologized for improperly scrutinizing tax-exempt applications of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012, also received an email alongside Ingram, Lambrew and Montz that contained confidential information.
In 2012, Ingram attempted to counsel the White House on a lawsuit from religious organizations opposing Obamacares contraception mandate.
The emails provided to Oversight investigators by the IRS had numerous redactions with the signifier 6103.
Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code forbids a federal employee from disclos[ing] any return or return information obtained by him in any manner in connection with his service as such an officer or an employee.
The 6103″ signifiers were repeatedly added to the emails in instances in which the officials were referring to the names of groups or organizations, according to a reading of the redacted emails.
Federal employees who illegally disclose confidential taxpayer information could face five years in prison.
The IRS does not respond to press inquiries during the government shutdown, citing law.

I hope so. Somebody needs to be held accountable for the IRS scandal.
She needs to be in PRISON! As far as I’m concerned she is a traitor to this country and should be brought up on espionage charges - minimum life sentence without parole.
Why the old file photo?
Never gonna happen. Who’s going to prosecute her? Holder?
Yeah...I know....but it is nice to dream of justice once in a while.
I share your feelings. You don’t know how often, as I log on to FR , I pray there will be a story about the fraud, in our WH, finally getting his due. Then I’ll see a siren on Drudge confirming his demise.
This criminal bum should be in prison...and waterboarded every couple hours for the rest of her worthless existence to gain information about her and her commie puppetmasters. My...how disgusting these perps are.
