THEY WANT US TO BELIEVE THAT
- THE IRS SCANDAL IS SERIOUS ENOUGH
- TO MAKE OBAMA THE MOST OUTRAGED PERSON IN AMERICA...
- (but not a big enough deal for his Chief legal Counsel to tell him about it!?!?
"I mean, nobody's been more outraged by the reported conduct here than the president of the United States," said CarneyVIDEO:
BUT IT WAS NOT A BIG ENOUGH DEAL FOR ANYONE TO TELL HIM ABOUT IT!?!?!??!
Senior White House staff knew of the ongoing investigation into the IRS's targeting of conservative groups ahead of the release of a report from a Treasury Department inspector general, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday, but held off on informing the president to wait for a final report. With the knowledge of an investigation, the White House held to a "cardinal rule" that it should not get involved in an external investigation, Carney said during his daily briefing. "No one in this building intervened in an ongoing independent investigation or did anything that could be seen as intervening," he said.
"To the chagrin of some who would have liked us to get more in front of this, we appropriately waited," Carney later added.

White House counsel Kathy Ruemmler was informed of the IG's audit on April 24, Carney said, and was told that the audit was nearing its conclusion and that a report would be forthcoming indicating that several IRS employees were involved in targeting groups with "tea party" and "patriot" in their names for additional scrutiny. ...
... Ruemmler did inform White House chief of staff Denis McDonough's office of the investigation, Carney said, and other senior staff were also told of the report.SO... THE CHIEF WHITE HOUSE LAWYER KNEW AND THE WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF, BUT THEY DIDN'T TELL THE PRESIDENT!?!?
IF THIS IS TRUE, THEN THEY SHOULD RESIGN.
IF IT'S NOT TRUE - AND IF OBAMA KNEW, THEN HE SHOULD RESIGN.
