If the President didn't have anything to do with the IRS targeting his political adversaries, then why on earth did Colleen Kelley, the President of the Nation Treasury Employee's Union (The Union representing the IRS, who gave 98% of their political contributions to anti-tea party democrats) visit President Obama the day before the IG report says the targeting began?
This comes from official White House visitor logs available in searchable form here: (White House Visitor Logs)
From The American Spectator:
According to the White House Visitors Log, provided here in searchable form by U.S. News and World Report, the president of the anti-Tea Party National Treasury Employees Union, Colleen Kelley, visited the White House at 12:30pm that Wednesday noon time of March 31st.
The White House lists the IRS union leader’s visit this way:
Kelley, Colleen Potus 03/31/2010 12:30
In White House language, “POTUS” stands for “President of the United States.”
The very next day after her White House meeting with the President, according to the Treasury Department’s Inspector General’s Report, IRS employees — the same employees who belong to the NTEU — set to work in earnest targeting the Tea Party and conservative groups around America. The IG report wrote it up this way:
April 1-2, 2010: The new Acting Manager, Technical Unit, suggested the need for a Sensitive Case Report on the Tea Party cases. The Determinations Unit Program Manager Agreed.
In short: the very day after the president of the quite publicly anti-Tea Party labor union — the union for IRS employees — met with President Obama, the manager of the IRS “Determinations Unit Program agreed” to open a “Sensitive Case report on the Tea party cases.” As stated by the IG report.Of course this is all circumstantial evidence, but it could also quite possibly be the smoking gun needed to push Congress to bring in a special investigator to look into this matter.
What do you think about this? Amazing coincidence? Let us know what you think in the comments.
