There is no secret that the IRS intentionally targeted tea party and conservative groups. IRS supervisor Lois Lerner was hung out as the Obama administration’s scapegoat but I still contend that Barack Obama was the person behind the targeting in the first place.
Consider the fact that before and during the IRS targeting of tea party and conservatives, then IRS Director Douglas Shulman was the most frequent Cabinet member to visit the White House. Shulman made 157 visits to the White House. During the same period of time, the second most frequent Cabinet member to visit the White House was Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank with only 86 visit. In fact, Shulman visited the White House more times than the combined visits of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.
Once the scandal broke, Obama’s own Justice Department was tasked with leading the investigation. Judicial Watch sought the documents concerning that investigation, only to be denied by the Justice Department for 2 years. Finally, they have obtained the documents they requested through the Freedom of Information Act only to find out that then US Attorney General Eric Holder selected a member of the DOJ with strong prejudicial ties to Obama and the Democratic National Committee.
According to the recent report from Judicial Watch:
“Judicial Watch today released a letter from the Justice Department admitting that Democratic Party/Obama campaign donor and Justice Department attorney Barbara Bosserman spent 1,529.25 hours investigating the IRS’ targeting of conservative organizations in 2010 and 2012. According to Federal Election Commission records, Bosserman contributed $6,750 to Obama campaigns and the DNC from 2004 to 2012, including 12 separate contributions to Obama for America between 2008 and 2012. The Obama Justice Department and FBI investigations into the Obama IRS scandal resulted in no criminal charges…”
“In what House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darryl Issa (R-CA) called ‘a startling conflict of interest,’ Bosserman was appointed by then-Attorney General Eric Holder to oversee the FBI investigation despite her being a substantial contributor to the political campaigns of Barack Obama and to the Democratic National Committee (DNC).”
Richard Nixon ended up impeached and resigning from the presidency because he tried to cover up the Watergate scandal. He was charged with obstruction of justice and contempt of Congress.
Obama is guilty of the same and worse. He has used his Justice Department on more than one occasion to obstruct justice, using his little puppet Eric Holder. Don’t forget that Holder ordered his own DOJ staff to drop all federal felony charges against two members of the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation during the 2008 election. They were videoed intimidating voters outside a Philadelphia polling station. When Holder ordered all charges dropped, the DOJ attorney handling the case was so upset that he quit his job with the DOJ because of the corruption which started at the top. Incidentally, the two members of the New Black Panthers against whom the charges were dropped were the same two men with whom Barack Obama marched with in 2007 in Selma, Alabama.
You and I both know that Eric Holder got all of his orders directly from the Oval Office, which makes you wonder just how corrupt current US Attorney General Loretta Lynch is. She can’t be any different than Holder or Obama would not have appointed her to the position. Just as Holder, under orders tried to cover up Obama’s crimes and those of his friends, one has to wonder just how far Lynch will go.
The scariest part of all of this is that during the main years of Obama’s corrupt actions, Hillary Clinton was part of the same corrupt administration and now she praises Obama for what he’s done. If anything, Hillary will be even more corrupt if elected after seeing what Obama got away with and looking at how much she and Bill Clinton have gotten away with over the years. I’ve said that Barack Obama is the most corrupt leader America has ever had, but if Hillary is elected, I’m certain she’ll be worse yet.
