The Changing IRS Scandal Timeline….by The White House

From Politico:

The White House on Monday once again added to the list of people who knew about the IRS investigation into its targeting of conservative groups — saying White House chief of staff Denis McDonough had been informed about a month ago.

Press secretary Jay Carney said again that no one had told President Barack Obama ahead of the first news reports: not his top aide McDonough, nor his chief counsel Kathy Ruemmler, nor anyone from the Treasury Department.

Monday’s revelation amounts to the fifth iteration of the Obama administration’s account of events, after initially saying that the White House had first learned of the controversy from the press.

Various folks that I follow on Twitter have asked important questions over the past few days such as this one:

And my observations regarding the multi-scandals now enveloping our supposed brilliant and awesome President?

  2. Obama is one of the most ill-intentioned presidents ever. His administration is now drowning in scandals. Except that only his opponents know it. Breaking through the shield-wall of liberal ‘denial’ needs more time.

  3. Hey, look who has a history!

    Lois Lerner targeted conservative groups when she worked at the FEC in the 1990s.

  4. “His administration is now drowning in scandals. Except that only his opponents know it. Breaking through the shield-wall of liberal ‘denial’ needs more time.”

    I am not so sure. It takes actual evidence for there to be a long lived scandal and so far there is very little, just lots of speculation, projection and Monday morning QBing of decisions. I hope the GOP does not shoot its wad too quickly. The worst thing to happen is their obsession with bringing down Obama will = election loses in 2014.
    It would be a disaster to have unified government in the last years of Obama.

  5. Ya, know, I’d always heard about Concern Trolls, but I never thought I’d get to see one in the wild.

    Interesting…

  6. It takes actual evidence for there to be a long lived scandal

    The letters and questionnaires sent by the IRS are what is called “actual evidence”. We have actual evidence that the IRS was asking the most detailed possible questions about things having nothing to do with political spending. Content of prayers? REALLY? And when people provided the answers the IRS wanted, they would come back with even more onerous questions. It is insane. It is very obvious what is going on.

    Conservatives “just coincidentally” getting audited within 30 days of making a large donation to Mitt Romney? People getting audited within 30 days of being reported to the “flag” email address? People being harassed by other government agencies? They aren’t making this up, there is a paper trail here.

    Have you ever lived in Chicago? That is exactly how things are done there. So where is the DNC now located and who staffs it now?

    The entire federal government is now acting like the Chicago city government. But I suppose in a way it is all “irrelevant” because come the next election we can kick these bastards out of office. We can strip the federal government and state governments and local governments clean of these rotten, corrupt, thieves. Again, this is less about Barack Obama and more about an entire political party that has been taken over by the corrupt Chicago machine. This isn’t the Democratic Party of 10 years ago, this is an entirely different animal.

    Go ask an “old school” Democrat if they are proud of what their party has become. It’s despicable. It’s corrupt. It’s rotten. No matter how well it manages to cover up its doings. We get to render the final verdict at the voting booth and “We haven’t been arrested yet” isn’t exactly a sustainable party platform.

  7. I’m interested in when Pres. Obama knew, as it’s important as a matter of the cover-up. But we also need to figure out who initiating the conservative targeting.
