Strange: Official Behind IRS Scandal Met With Obama the Day Before
There’s a good chance that we’ll never have an actual paper trail to Obama linking him to the IRS attempt to rig the election in his favor. The reason is that there might not be a paper trail — it might have been arranged verbally.
As we’ve talked about before, Obama had publicly sent dozens of “nudges” to the IRS, suggesting that certain Romney donors were committing financial crimes and should be investigated. They ended up being just that — investigated.
Now we know that the day before the IRS began targeting the Tea Party for 2 years before the 2012 election, Obama met with the union leader of the IRS. This leader is an outspoken, long-time critic of the Tea Party. Remember, there are no coincidences in Washington.
