Not only that, the meeting was two days before that same lawyer wrote up the new guidelines for Tea Party groups.
The meeting William Wilkins attended with the President included 13 people, and took place in the White House on April 23, 2012. The next day, the IRS Commission, Wilkins’ boss, was logged in to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. And on April 25, “Wilkins’ office sent the exempt organizations determinations unit “additional comments on the draft guidance” for approving or denying tea party tax-exempt applications, according to the IRS inspector general’s report.”
If you are still interested, and if you want to be informed so that we can defend freedom in America, the Legal Ethics Forum has a post up that includes a number of links, plus the comments from other lawyers include one that is illuminating regarding possible claims of privilege.
None of this is business as usual, and if the GOP lets it slide, they they deserve to be supplanted by The American Conservative Party….or whatever a new second party will be named.
