This is definitely not getting the attention that it deserves. We all need to get this news out since the majority of the MSM will not.
Well, Obama accomplished exactly what he was aiming to do. Blindside you with his convenient speech to take the light away from the most recent finding in the IRS hearings.
The congressional IRS hearing is being led on a breadcrumb trail, that so far has led to… Drum roll… An Obama IRS appointee, IRS chief counsel William Wilkins. Wilkins is the senior adviser to Ms. Lois Lerner.
It will be interesting to watch to see if this trail will go any higher than it already has. But this testimony to date will be be very damaging to the Obama administration.
“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.”
“So: What the IRS originally claimed was a rogue operation now reaches up not only to the Washington office, but into the office of the IRS chief counsel himself.”
“Chief IRS Counsel Got Jeremiah Wright’s Church out of IRS Probe Before Joining Agency”
“News reports from the time indicate the now-chief counsel of the IRS, William Wilkins, helped a church connected to President Barack Obama’s friend Rev. Jeremiah Wright get out of an IRS probe in 2008 while working as a private attorney.
“Lawyers from Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr have won the dismissal of an IRS case against United Church of Christ, Sen. Barack Obama’s denomination,” The American Lawyer’s Zach Lowe wrote on May 22, 2008.
The IRS initiated an investigation early this year after a speech by Obama at a 50th anniversary celebration of the church last June. It was a reference by Obama to his presidential candidacy in a talk otherwise focused on faith that caught the agency’s attention. Tax laws prohibit non-profits–including churches–from engaging in political speech or promoting candidates. The IRS can withdraw an organization’s tax-free status if the organization is found to violate the rule.”
