Bombshell!! IRS Scandal Linked To Chief Counsel in Washington Office

The IRS claimed that the scandal was isolated, "not intentional", and limited to only a few lower level rogue staff members in Cincinnati. Then House investigators unearthed that the Cincinnati office took it's orders from the Washington office.  Now as we have delved deeper into what happened with the IRS targeting of Tea Party, conservative, constitutional, and traditional religious groups tax-exempt applications we have learned that low level IRS employees not only took their orders from a lawyer named Carter Hull in the Washington office but it reached high up the ladder to William Wilkins, the chief counsel, at the direction of Lois Lerner.  Lerner explicitly targeted Tea Party applications, ordered them to be given extra scrutiny and sent up to the chief counsel.  The chief counsel is of ONLY two Obama political appointees in the IRS.  This is BIG NEWS. Layers have been peeled back to find that the targeting of conservative and Tea Party applications was not an isolated incident and that it was indeed intentional. The targeting reached all the way up to the chief counsel in the Washington office.  I wonder if the investigation of the IRS will reveal that others higher up in the administration were involved. Will this reach the president?

Prez "thin-skin" hates conservatives and considers us his enemies. He would jump at the chance to harass us and hobble our chances politically. As money and fundraising is the fuel of politics in a media society. His plan, unfortunately, worked. Now it is for us to investigate and punish wrongdoers.

The IRS is not much different than other totalitarian government groups from other countries.
