Charles Krauthammer Says IRS Scandal Could Be a “Fatal Problem” for Barack Obama … Second Article of Impeachment of Nixon/Watergate was Abuse of IRS


IRS Scandal Could Be a “Fatal Problem” for Barack Obama …

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer told Sean Hannity that if the White House had any connection with the IRS scandal, it will be a ‘Fatal Problem’ for President Barack Obama. Krauthammer called the IRS situation “the one scandal that people have a visceral sense about,” it’s the one U.S. institution, besides the military, that can do very serious harm. Krauthammer is correct and the American people are outraged that the IRS, already seen in a bad light by most Americans, now have lost all trust in the government agency that appears to have to ability to act without any rules or over-sight. On Friday during House hearings on the IRS scandal, Rep. Mike Kelly blasted the IRS for their vindictive, partisan ways and stated,  “This confirms that the IRS can do anything they want, anytime they want, to anyone they want.” Charles Krauthammer went on to say that the IRS going after conservative groups based on their politics is “a violation that everybody, left or right, understands.” Earlier in the week, Krauthammer commented on President Obama’s “Clintonian” response to the media’s question as to whether anyone in the White House knew about the scandal and corruption that was taking place in the IRS. President Obama dodged the question by saying, “I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the IG report before the IG report had been leaked through the press.” Which had nothing to do with the question.

From Mediaite:

Krauthammer stated, “The one issue that can fell a presidency is the corruption of the IRS coming from on high.” Hannity pointed to the denials of political targeting by the former head of the IRS when such targeting was going on, and both he and Krauthammer suspected someone will be fired over this in the future.

Krauthammer also said that Benghazi hasn’t gotten more attention is because of the lack of media coverage and the complexity of the scandal that has not fully resonated with the public.
