Obama’s fingerprints all over IRS Tea Party scandal

By Jay Sekulow Published October 20, 2013

It’s past time for the media to begin asking President Obama tough questions about the IRS conservative targeting scandal. After all he was involved, publicly, from the beginning.

Last Friday, the American Center for Law and Justice (where I serve as Chief Counsel) filed its Second Amended Complaint against the United States, the IRS, and a legion of IRS officials. This Complaint, in which we represent 41 organizations in 22 states, presents perhaps the most complete story yet of the IRS conservative targeting scandal.

And it is an ugly story indeed.

What was sold to the American public as a low-level scandal perpetrated by a few rogue employees – a scandal stopped after senior officials became aware and asserted control – is now (to borrow a Watergate phrase) “no longer operative.”

Instead, we detail a long-running assault on the Tea Party, beginning shortly after its emergence in 2009, that is empowered, encouraged, and orchestrated not only by senior IRS officials in Washington, but also through outright targeting by the White House, Congressional Democrats, and the mainstream media.

In fact, the IRS was doing little more than focusing its attention exactly where the president of the United States told it to focus – on the groups the president himself identified as a “threat to democracy.”

Consider President Obama’s aggressive public statements – made just as we now know senior IRS officials were intentionally and aggressively scrutinizing conservative groups’ applications for tax exemption.

On August 9, 2010 the president warned of “attack ads run by shadowy groups with harmless-sounding names” during his weekly radio address. The President said: We don’t know who’s behind these ads and we don’t know who’s paying for them . . . you don’t know if it’s a foreign controlled corporation. ... The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide.”

On September 16, 2010, President Obama once again warned that some unidentified “foreign-controlled entity” could be providing “millions of dollars” for “attack ads.” Less than one week later, he complained that “nobody knows” the identities of the individuals who support conservative groups.

On September 22, 2010, President Obama warned of groups opposing his policies “pos[ing] as non-for-profit social and welfare trade groups” and he claimed such groups were “guided by seasoned Republican political operatives” and potentially supported by some unidentified “foreign controlled entity.”

On October 14, 2010, President Obama called organizations with “benign sounding” names “a problem for democracy”; the next week he complained about individuals who “hide behind those front groups,” called such groups a “threat to our democracy,” and claimed such groups were engaged in “unsupervised” spending.

Next, consider the IRS’s actions following those statements. Not only did the IRS continue its targeting, it issued broad questionnaires that made unconstitutionally-intrusive inquiries designed to get answers to exactly the questions President Obama posed.

Who are your donors?

What is the political activity of your family and associates?

What are the passwords for your websites?

After all, according to the president, you’re only afraid to answer these questions if “you’ve got something to hide.”

The demagoguery is breathtaking. Not only does he raise the wholly-unsubstantiated possibility of shadowy “foreign” involvement in the Tea Party groups, a charge incredible on its face, but he goes the extra mile of calling such groups, a “threat to our democracy.”

When the president of the United States declares these groups a “threat to our democracy” is it any surprise that his enthusiastic supporters (and donors) within the IRS responded with an unprecedented campaign of selective targeting, intimidation, and governmental intrusion?

One grows weary of stating the obvious, but if President Bush had declared a specific category of citizen groups a “threat to democracy” potentially run by “political operatives” or “foreign-controlled,” and the IRS launched an unprecedented campaign of targeting and intrusive questioning, the mainstream media would have been relentless not only in its independent investigations but in its calls for accountability – at the highest levels.

Was the president of the United States involved in the IRS scandal? He was the one who identified the targets – in the most public manner possible.

A president singling out citizens groups for targeting and intrusive questioning merely because he dislikes their message and fears their political influence?

Now that is a “threat to democracy.”

Nothing will happen to Obama because there is no real proof, only fabricated stuff. Just like his place of birth, no one had any proof and that was forgot about.

Innocent until proven guilty, at least that is what the Bill of Rights says? But you all don't care about that.

It doesnt matter the place of birth to qualify to be president you must be a natural born citizen.Natural born is born of parents that are both american citizens.Dummy

In other words just blame everyone else and have alibis and you are innocent.

and this is what we end up with when Obama was elected a bunch of these f'ing morons.

I wonder if Bush was President and these kind of scandals went on.He would be guilty as charged without the innocent till proven guilty BS psycho is spouting.While I agree with that,i also believe that obama said the buck stops with him and he hasnt taken responsibility for one single thing.He is a coward and continues to throw his people under the bus yet promote them and keep them employed.What kind of CEO is that?

So....him not providing school transcripts or any other proof of anything when asked does not give you the sense of "where there's smoke there's fire"??? For the second coming of Christ, he sure has a small footprint......nobody remembers him....nada.
He's the FIRST person to take credit for good things, the last to do so when it's bad.
I saw a really good interview by a practicing Psychologist and who he is, why he is the way he is, etc. It was exceptionally eye-opening and when I thought about people I've know in my life that behave like he does, the parallels are unreal.

What do school transcripts have to do with anything. Just like Mitt would not give out his tax info.

Until there is any proof, you can not convict a person, plain and simple.

Only one parent needs to be an American citizen at the birth. That is why Cruz can run for president, only his mother is an American citizen.

Yeah and he paid the price,this clown in office hasnt paid the price for anything except his gray hair and all those black moles growing all over his face like his buddy morgan freeman.

Actually i disagree, Cruz is not natural born either and he was also born in canada.I guess if Obama can do it then anyone can.

Because it's been looked into, investigated....over and over again.
Not ONE shred of evidence, no pictures....nothing. This doesn't seem strange to you???
And give the whole Mitt thing a break. He did provide tax returns, plenty of them. What's more Mitt was an open book. They somehow could find out about him supposedly bullying a kid in high school, but not one shred of evidence that Obama ever attended or accomplished anything he claimed to have.
As D said.....it's walking and talking like a duck. Before you go all liberal on me, I was not a big Mitt fan. But I did vote for him. I'm pretty sure who you voted for....

True,not even folks that attended the colleges Obama claimed to have attended knew of him.How did poor Obama attend all those ivy league schools anyway?Big dady soros?hear on a student visa illegally? or did he just polish enough oscar meyers off to pay the tuition?

I've seen pictures of his college ID and it said foreign student on it. Also admission forms with him claiming other nationality (undoubtedly because he got free tuition that way).
I know it's tin-foil hattish, but I've yet to see one thing that convinces me he's a legal candidate. Not one. That whole BC crap from Hawaii is just as shady as it gets. Not to mention the whole SS# debacle. It's been shown that ONE of his SS#'s belonged to a man from Connecticut (where Obama has never lived) who HAPPENED to retire to Hawaii and HAPPENED TO DIE in a hospital there that....wait for it....employed an aunt of Obama.
But....that's just a coincidence I'm sure....
