CNN Investigation: Is the IRS targeting whistleblowers? Sure looks that way…

Given all that we know now, it sure looks like this former Air Marshall turned whistleblower was targeted by someone who didn’t like the song he was whistling.

    At this point, I’m honestly just surprised that this Odministration hasn’t used drones to target whistleblowers.

      E Lee Zimmerman Couldn’t agree more. The lawlessness of this administration seems to know no bounds.

      E Lee Zimmerman Do we know that they haven’t?

    • PNWShan

      E Lee Zimmerman Why use a drone when the threat of a IRS audit is so much simpler to do and harder to detect as an attack? And with all their info gathering, there’s a lot they can do that doesn’t involve direct use of force.

    That nasty thing, Jarrett said those who went against them would pay……how can any of this surprise anyone???

    Boehner has to put down his tissues and appoint a special prosecuter now. These hacks need to go to jail.

      BearNJ He can’t. Congress no longer has the authority to do so. Holder has to. And does anyone here actually believe for a second he would?

        He could authorize a special select committee to investigate instead of having 4 committees going off in 4 directions. All those committees holding hearings on the scandals make it look like overkill. It also looks like it is being done for show rather than to uncover the truth. But then maybe Boehner is just doing it for show and doesn’t really want the truth to come out. He just wants to get along.

    The timing is pretty suspicious, but we’ll have to see what the investigation turns up.  I’ve been audited before and there was no harassment, and everything went fine.  I believe there are random audits as well.  Nothing has to trigger them on our end.
    What I didn’t like was how the IRS made him pay up but they didn’t have to on a much larger amount.  So is there a statute of limitations on you owing them money?  I seriously doubt it.

    Ironic how close political liberalism is connected to authoritarianism, totalitarianism, fascism, communism, and socialism.
    Even more ironic is how liberals call it “liberty” or “freedom”…???  Indeed, it’s a mental disorder!

    Defund them… NOW!

    Did the Right Scoop miss this breaking story, there are multiple whistle blowers who have come forth to say they believe that the FBI was involved in a cover up of the downing of Flight 800 by a terrorist surface to air missile as witnessed by more than 200 people.  The Clinton administration claimed the plane went down due to mechanical problems.  That was BUNK and investigative journalist Jack Cashill proved that it was a cover up years ago.  John (Hanoi) Kerry is caught on tape calling the incident a “terror attack” not once but twice. When will they question him and the Clintons?  How about questioning Dick Morris also.
    The FBI may also have been involved in a cover up during the Oklahoma City Bombing, they failed to follow leads of key witnesses that said they saw other men involved.  Jack Cashill delves into that possibility also and there are a couple of great books about that cover up as well.  Those Clintons are something else, hey.

    How many of our representatives’ votes are being controlled through threats of IRS audit?  They accept unreported gifts from special interest groups routinely…that is the fodder for IRS blackmail.  Only a tiny fraction of politicians are clean enough to vote freely for our interests.

    Did the reporter actually say, “Statue of Limitation”?
