Former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman Visited the White House at least 157 Times during the Obama Administration … More Visits Than any Cabinet Member
I guess former IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman was at the White House more than just for the Easter Egg roll.
Some one has some explaining to do to Congress under oath. As reported by the Daily Caller, former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman visited the White House at least 157 times during the Obama administration. More than any other of Obama’s other trusted adviser or cabinet member. Looks like someone has frequent flier miles at the White House. How could that be? Last week before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Shulman stated that he had visited the White House 118 times during the period of time that the IRS was targeting conservative groups and the Tea Party. Looks like he missed the amount of times in the White House by that much. Interestingly enough, By contrast, Shulman’s predecessor Mark Everson only visited the White House once during four years of service in the George W. Bush administration. Imagine that. But of course its just a coincidence that Schulman was there that oftern and never said a word to the White House about the targeting of the Tea Party. PLEASE! 157 times! As Weasel Zippers opines, It’s almost like the White House and IRS were in cahoots. This is unreal. But we are not supposed to connect the dots and see the obvious. How dare we implicate the White House in the IRS scandal. Sorry, the Obama White House has lost getting the benefit of the doubt anymore.
Shulman’s extensive access to the White House first came to light during his testimony last week before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Shulman gave assorted answers when asked why he had visited the White House 118 times during the period that the IRS was targeting tea party and conservative nonprofits for extra scrutiny and delays on their tax-exempt applications.
By contrast, Shulman’s predecessor Mark Everson only visited the White House once during four years of service in the George W. Bush administration and compared the IRS’s remoteness from the president to “Siberia.” But the scope of Shulman’s White House visits — which strongly suggests coordination by White House officials in the campaign against the president’s political opponents — is even more striking in comparison to the publicly recorded access of Cabinet members.
