Federal Judge Orders Release of Information That Would Tie Obama to IRS Scanda
For the second time this week, a federal judge has tossed a monkey wrench into the mechanism of the Obama caliphate machine. For two years, Cause of Action has been seeking information about the IRS transferring taxpayer information to the White House.
