Analysis by Daily Caller provides indisputable link between White House and IRS targeting of White House enemies during election year. Though circumstantial, this is bombproof evidence of abuse of power. No alternate explanation exists for more than 157 visits with the President during this time. Was there a crisis at the IRS during this time that required his attention? Shulman has not even hinted at the real content of any of these meetings. Graphic by the Daily Caller and Fox News.
As Vince Coglianese of the Daily Caller points out:
Shulman’s extensive access to the White House first came to light during his testimony last week before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Shulman gave assorted answers when asked why he had visited the White House 118 times during the period that the IRS was targeting tea party and conservative nonprofits for extra scrutiny and delays on their tax-exempt applications.
By contrast, Shulman’s predecessor Mark Everson only visited the White House once during four years of service in the George W. Bush administration and compared the IRS’s remoteness from the president to “Siberia.” But the scope of Shulman’s White House visits — which strongly suggests coordination by White House officials in the campaign against the president’s political opponents — is even more striking in comparison to the publicly recorded access of Cabinet members.
For example, Attorney General Eric Holder, a close friend of the President and head of the Justice Department, logged 62 publicly known White House visits, less than half as many as Shulman’s 157 publicly known visits.
Is there any reason to believe that after this pathetic testimony by Doug Shulman before Congress, which included suggesting that some of his visits to the White House were for the Easter Egg Roll, that Congress cannot form an impeachment case? If they are motivated to do so?
This was just released by Mitch McConnell yesterday. It hits the President pretty hard.
