From Richochet: A Smoking Gun.
For some time now, we have been aware that Douglas Shulman, then the commissioner of this supposedly independent agency, met with Barack Obama in the White House no fewer than 157 times in the run-up to the 2012 elections. This, too, we are told, is insignificant. The implementation of Obamacare, a matter of profound concern to the President, deeply involved the IRS. The two men simply had to meet over and over and over again.Yesterday, however, thanks to Investor's Business Daily, however, we learned something new. Those "Obamacare implementation meetings" were attended by Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager for Obama's 2012 re-election campaign. "I was in there with him," Cutter acknowledged. "There was nothing nefarious going on."You can believe Ms. Cutter if you wish. But I am inclined to echo the IBD: the lady in question cannot have been "there to discuss the Easter Egg Roll."Congressman Issa should call in Ms. Cutter and recall Mr. Shulman to testify under oath about these meetings. I, for one, would like to watch them squirm as they commit perjury.
