White House Illegally Obtained Koch Brothers Tax Records In 2010

a 2010 incident involving Austan Goolsbee, Obama’s former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. Goolsbee told reporters on Aug. 27, 2010 that Koch Industries, a billion-dollar energy company run by the politically influential Koch brothers, paid no income taxes.

The tax records of Koch Industries — a private company – would not have been public information and therefore should not have been known to Goolsbee. At the time, the Obama team backpedaled and said the information was made public in two places – which turned out to be untrue. Then the Obama administration said Goolsbee had misspoken and that he had guessed the company’s confidential tax information.

At the time, the IRS had promised to look into the Goolsbee gaffe but a report was never publicly released.

    Without a doubt a honest investigation of this matter will lead straight to the oval office. Keep in mind that government employees, of any level, generally walk the straight and narrow path and would do not put their jobs, pensions and benefits on the line unless they feel protected by someone with an extremely high position. The IRS units guilty of this matter most assuredly knew that they were out of bounds but felt protected by someone urging them on. It has to be a direct line to the White House.
