White House Chief of Staff knew about damaging IRS audit, kept Obama in the dark

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Serviced scandal today spread further within the White House and closer to President Obama.

White House spokesman Jay Carney today disclosed that Obama’s chief of staff, Dennis McDonough, and other top White House officials had advance warning that the IRS was targeting conservative groups.

But he insisted McDonough and the other White House officials purposely kept Obama out of the loop.

McDonough “rightly chose not to take action” to inform Obama, Carney told reporters at the daily White House briefing.

“That’s what any White House should do,” he said. “The cardinal rule here is you do not intervene in an independent investigation … particularly when the final conclusions have not been releases.”

McDonough joins a growing list of White House officials who knew about the Treasury inspector general’s investigation into the IRS wrongly targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny of their tax-exempt status.

Previously, it surfaced that White House Chief Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler learned of the IG probe on April 22, three weeks before President Obama claims he learned of it from news reports.

 Well, we all know they are covering for Obama.  Then there's David Axlerod's explanation on the Morning Joe Program last week:

The government is simply too big for President Obama to keep track of all the wrongdoing taking place on his watch, his former senior adviser, David Axelrod, told MSNBC. “Part of being president is there’s so much beneath you that you can’t know because the government is so vast,” he explained.

If he truly did not know anything about any of it, he is incompetent at and incapable of doing the job he was elected to do.

He knew.  Damage control isn't really going to well.

Of course he knew, this is his chief of staff.

 Can you imagine the riots there will be, if Congress impeaches him?  But there isn't a chance of that, unless we get control of the Senate in 2014.  Which after this crap, should be a shoo-in.  Before these last two scandals surfaced, Dem's in the red states were already distancing themselves from him....mostly because of Obamacare and his rabid anti-gun stance.

Wait didn't Carney tell the press no one in the White House knew about the IRS?

It does lend credibility to the claim that it wasn't Obama who made te call to go after Osama bin Laden.
