    Senior legal counsel Kathryn Ruemmler was told about the audit on April 24, Carney said Monday. She then told Denis McDonough, Obama’s chief of staff and other senior officials about the investigation.

    “It was the judgment of counsel this is not a matter she should convey to the president,” Carney said. “Her opinion that this is not the kind of thing that requires notification to the president.”

    Since the POTUS depends on news reports to get his info, I wonder how come he didn't notice the news reports that had come out previously back in 2012? Not a big deal when IRS infringes on First Amendment rights? Better for the campaign to dismiss it, and let it hang around until after the election.

    Carol, Seems like given the lady in charge when this all was going on a $104,000 bonus (which has to be approved by Obama by law) and then promoting her to run the Obama care death panels is not exactly what I would have in mind...Obama always says he is going to 'do something' but behind the scenes he does as any King would do!

    This stuff just keeps getting stranger and stranger. Rep Issa will probably try to get her into a perjury trap by playing the recording of her responses to "the question." She can't deny saying it but she won't be able to admit it. If she says anything other than "I take the 5th", I think her immunity is gone.

    IRS official Lois Lerner to plead the Fifth
    By Aaron Blake, Published: May 21, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    More Lois Lerner, the IRS official who first disclosed the agency’s improper targeting of conservative groups two weeks ago, will invoke her right not to testify Wednesday for fear of self-incrimination, her lawyer has told the House Oversight Committee.

    “The committee has been contacted by Ms. Lerner’s lawyer who stated that his client intended to invoke her Fifth Amendment right and refuse to answer questions,” said oversight spokesman Ali Ahmad.

    Ahmad said Lerner, the head of the IRS’s tax-exempt organizations division, would still be required to appear before the committee, which means she will have to plead the Fifth in person and on camera.

    “Ms. Lerner remains under subpoena from Chairman Issa to appear at tomorrow’s hearing — the committee has a Constitutional obligation to conduct oversight,” Ahmad said. “Chairman Issa remains hopeful that she will ultimately decide to testify tomorrow about her knowledge of outrageous IRS targeting of Americans for their political beliefs.”
