    Not a 'Smidgen' of Corruption? Witnesses Say the IRS Targeting Scandal Is Real - And

    During a congressional hearing into the Internal Revenue Services’ admitted targeting of conservative groups prior to the 2012 election cycle, an attorney representing some of those groups severely chastised President Barack Obama for asserting during an interview with Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly that there was not a “smidgen” of corruption at that agency. After citing a number of items of evidence which support the claim that the IRS unfairly targeted conservative groups, attorney Jay Sekulow said that the IRS scandal goes “as high as it gets.”

    If only the administration could be half as brave as these women for speaking out....I listened to some of this hearing live yesterday as I made my way south toward home, and I gotta say, demo's display in that was reprehensible....

    Congress? Obama doesn't need no stinking congress. These IRS regulations are mere rules - not laws.

    There was no corruption (not even a smidgen), or any abuse of IRS power (just ask MSNBC, or Obama) - there was simply confusion over the IRS 501c4 rules (that used to be called tax laws). The Obama solution is really quite simple - just change those "confusing" IRS rules. Since these IRS rules (regulations - formerly kniown as tax laws?) are no longer federal tax laws (those went away some time ago) they can be changed, by the very same federal executive agency that enforces them, to make whatever the current administration wants IRS to do to become the "law oif the land".

    yes...nothing braver than a "conservative activist" attacking the President and the administration. Worthy of a medal in my opinion.

    After being subjected to Obama's Bullying via the FBI, OSHA and the IRS, confronting the party thats trying to justify those highly illegal and unethical actions takes allot of guts.

    Seriously, dont you have a problem with whats being done to these Americans ? Or does your definition of corruption depend on the party thats being accused ?

    You cant say this never happened because the IRS ADMITED it.

    Private donor list were leaked to left wing activist groups and the FBI is recomending NO criminal charges ?

    A lawyer says their client was wronged. I'm shocked.

    What are you even talking about? Bullying? All political organizations that were applying as SOCIAL WELFARE organizations were getting scrutiny. They should.

    These "scandals" get congressional investigations and scrutinized by the press and nothing is found. If you think Obama is that good at hiding stuff then you have an extremely high opinion of him.

    The IRS " Apologized " for this back in 2012. Or have you forgotten ? When they were trying to orchestrate a way out by blaming a couple of " low level " IRS folks in Cinci...

    Hell, Obama said he would get to the bottom of this. He lied apparently.

    Imagine the profound implications that comes with a President using Fed agency's to deny Americans their Constitutional rights ......Wow.

    Not just the IRS. The FBI ( DOJ ) and OSHA too

    Thats why Liberals run to these threads in a wasted attempt to staunch the bleeding.

    Its seriousky bad news

    Bull.

    Then WHY did the IRS APOLGIZE back in 2012 amd blame this on a couple of " low level " Cinci employeees ?

    Did those Cinci people sik the additional Federal Agencies on that lady from Texas ?

    Did those " low level " employees release private donor list to left wing activist groups ?

    Your'e willing to justify just about anything to cover for your ideology aren't you ?

    Because at the time there was a list of conservative organizations that were supposedly "targeted". For some reason the fact that it wasn't targeting but was applied to groups on the left didn't come out until months later.

    I'm not justifying anything. I'm asking for proof. Somehow higher ups in the administration ordered career bureaucrats (including and IRS commissioner that was appointed by Bush) and they did it...of course without any sort of email chain or trail or evidence. Yeah...ok...maybe in a make believe world where Democratic Presidents are ominous boogeymen but in the real world that's not a credible story.
