How close was Obama to the IRS scandal?
By Keith Wagstaff
On Sunday, a senior White House official told The Wall Street Journal that Kathryn Ruemmler, head of the Office of the White House Counsel, knew as early as April 22 that an inspector general audit of the IRS would likely show that the agency was targeting conservative groups applying for 501(c)(4) status, by singling out applicants with words like “Tea Party” and “patriot” in their names.
That timeline prompts an important question: If Obama’s top lawyer knew about the IRS situation weeks before it went public, shouldn’t she have told the president
… “Either Ruemmler was incredibly incompetent or the White House is lying about when Obama knew of the scandal,” writes Ed Morrissey at Hot Air. “We got a big hint in last week’s press conference that it’s the latter, when Obama changed the context of a question about his awareness of the scandal to his awareness of the IG report, which is pointedly not the same thing.”
