Something's rotten in Denmark
Here is the damning table that shows numbers of visits by the various Obama cabinet secretaries. There, way at the top with far more visits than anybody is Douglas Shulman, former IRS commissioner under Obama, who directly oversaw the agency's unofficial policy of intimidation of the President's political opponents. By contrast, Shulman's predecessor Mark Everson, only visited the white house once during his four-year stint under Bush.
Shulman cannot say it was a routine part of the job because Everson would have had to spend a similar amount of time with Bush when he held that job. So, why did Shulman need to pow-wow with Obama 157 times?
To me it's clear that Obama, or his direct representatives in the west wing, were instructing Shulman on IRS activities that deviated from the norm.....what else could it be? And the only IRS activity that deviated from the norm during that time was the specific intimidation of wealthy GOP donors and conservative groups who had filed for 501c3 tax-exempt status.
Shulman is a lying piece of shit and needs to be hauled before congress and made to answer under oath, questions about what was going on.
