Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) Says He Has Information That Will Tie the IRS Scandal ‘Into the White House’ (Video)



The Obama administration has wanted America to believe that the IRS scandal was the result of a couple of rogue agents from the Cincinnati, OH office. However, the information that has come from the numerous Congressional hearings has proved that the scandal is much larger than that. However, so far there has been no linkage directly to the White House. So far that is. According to Daryl Issa (R-CA),  the House oversight committee chairman will present information that the scandal goes all the way to the White House. As reported at The Daily Caller, retiring IRS lawyer  Carter C. Hull says scandal was overseen by D.C., and plans on naming names of those involved.

Retiring IRS lawyer Carter C. Hull implicated the IRS Chief Counsel’s office, headed by Obama appointee William J. Wilkins, and Lois Lerner, the embattled head of the IRS’ exempt organizations office, in the IRS targeting scandal and made clear that the targeting started in Washington, according to leaked interviews that Hull granted to the Oversight Committee in advance of Thursday’s hearing.

The hearing on Thursday is also expected to include testimony from Elizabeth Hofacre, a revenue agent who had previously complained about intervention from the higher-ups at the IRS and Treasury Inspector General J. Russell George will testify again as well.

From FOX News:

House Republicans plan to ratchet up scrutiny of the IRS during a hearing Thursday morning where agency workers are expected to discuss the involvement of high-level officials in slowing down applications from Tea Party groups.

For the first time, the House oversight committee has invited two key agency officials to testify. Republican leaders of the committee claimed Wednesday that one of them recently revealed that the IRS chief counsel’s office — led by a political appointee — played a role, along with embattled IRS official Lois Lerner, in scrutinizing conservative groups.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the committee, told Fox News that agency officials in Cincinnati were taking their orders from Washington, and that the investigation needs to look next at both Lerner and the counsel’s office.

“As a part of this ongoing investigation, the committees have learned that the IRS Chief Counsel’s office in Washington, D.C. has been closely involved in some of the applications,” Issa and other Republicans wrote in a  letter to IRS Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel.

Much more at PJ Media as Ed Driscoll reminds us that in 2009 President Obama “joked” about siccing the IRS on his enemies. Talk about hiding in plain sight.

      It is at least to the White House general council. This means Ozero approved of the action. Time for major impeachment of some Democrat crooks.

      Could it be that Barack Obama thought the happenings encompassing the George Zimmerman trial would permanently distract the Nation’s attention from the IRS, AP, NSA and Benghazi scandals? He should have thought again.

      Rep. Wolf says Benghazi survivors were asked to sign non-disclosure agreements
      Published July 19, 2013

      Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., is calling on the Obama administration to explain why the survivors of last year’s deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, were reportedly asked to sign non-disclosure agreements that prevent them from talking about the attack.
      In a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and CIA Director John Brennan, Wolf said his office has received reports that some survivors of the attack were asked to sign the confidentiality agreement as recently as this summer.
