Did Regime Time IRS News to Distract from Benghazi?
And these are just the scandals we know about.
Check it out:
Folks, we are being told that Lois Lerner’s seemingly out-of-the-blue admission about the IRS tax-exempt waivers was carefully planned. The question that evoked her admission was planted as part of prepared strategy for the IRS to release this information to the public, and that’s according to the outgoing IRS commissioner, Steven Miller. He said it in testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee this morning.
So Lois Lerner’s out-of-the-blue admission about the IRS tax-exempt waivers, that was orchestrated to get that in official testimony. So this would seem to show that they wanted the IRS stuff to come out right at the point where Benghazi was starting to gain traction. That’s the point of this. There were some people who laughingly suggested that the lid was blown on this IRS thing last Friday right when Benghazi was starting to heat up.
I remember a number of people called the program here and sent e-mails. They said, “Rush, this is an attempt to cover-up what’s going on in Benghazi ’cause that’s the real problem,” and it is. The IRS thing, though, is easily understandable. The IRS thing, it’s abuse of power. That’s government overreaching. A lot of people can understand that. The Benghazi thing is still kind of murky, and it’s a tougher sell to try to convince the American people that an administration didn’t care about the lives of four Americans.
That’s a real tough sell.
