Senior IRS officials knew of targeting conservative groups in 2011 – IRS chief counsel knew in 2011. “[Previously] the IRS claimed that this only happened in one office in just 2012, and that only lower-level officials were involved. This report from the AP refutes both of those claims — and adds yet another damning example to a growing list of misleading and false statements from the Obama administration.” Lies, damn lies and the Obama Administration.

The second article of impeachment against Nixon included as the first of five sections:
1. He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavoured to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be intitiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.

This is absolutely impeachable.

I can not take full credit for what I’m about to type. Has anyone else noticed how this story came to light right after the Benghazi lies have stopped being believed? It is a distraction, one in order to have the msm be all over this one and ignore the other one that is even worse.

Both are big stories, yet the msm wants to make Benghazi go away in order to protect the hildabeast. Neither one are going away…

This is not really big enough to distract from Benghazi. I am expecting something HUGE to happen. I hope I am wrong, because it will not be good.

Yeah, if the military is not ordered to blow up Iran soon, I will be surprised. Pleasantly.

More likely, the CIA will be ordered to pull off a secret assault on Iran, try to blame it on Israel, and have it found out that it was a CIA operation, which they didn’t clear with the WH.
Takes the heat off the WH and diverts attention somewhere other than Benghazi.

Again….heads absolutely ought to roll. Terminations with NO severance and no retirement…..just like it would happen the the real world. But, government ha? But then these unethical scum got their orders from above, and of course not having a shred of personal honor or integrity, they hopped right to it.

As I said before, this scandal originated in either Obama’s staff (with his tacit approval) or in the Obama reelection committee (with his tacit approval). It did not originate in the IRS itself, certainly not with some low level flunkies in Ohio. This goes to the top.

Is anyone really surprised by this (not so much) “revelation”? This from easily the most corrupt, blatently decepetive administration in our nation’s history?

They really want us to believe that this was started by “low-level” staffers….when that is not even remotely possible…

Civil. War. Now.

Where’s the military to defend our constitutional rights?

Right now, military leadership is part of the problem.

Whatever a leftist accuses us of, he has already done.

0bama has transformed our representative republic into a banana republic in less than four years. Pretty amazing but could not have been done without the democrat party propaganda wing formerly known as the news media.

What was Bill Clinton’s mantra?

Oh yea, “Deny, Deny, Deny”.
