One of the most important and so-far least noted threads in the IRS sandal cloth is the inexplicable remark made by Austan Goolsbee, at the time the Chairman of the White Council of Economic Advisors about the taxes paid by the Koch brothers - arch villains in the Manichean delusions of the American left - that would require his knowledge of their confidential tax returns. Did the White House senior staff illegally browse through the tax records of their political enemies? The Washington Free Beacon has been trying to find out, and uncovered an interesting response:

CJ Ciaramella reports:
The Treasury Department on Wednesday refused to confirm or deny the existence of an inspector general report investigating whether or not former White House economic adviser Austan Goolsbee illegally accessed tax information on the Koch brothers.

The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by the Washington Free Beacon, declined to acknowledge the existence of the report.​

That is expressly why I have questioned and asked why Geithner and Goolsbee be summoned before the Congressional Committee to explain their part in the IRS scandals. Will they be summoned?

:confused: Where did I say I agreed with you?
Two words and your smiley claimed it was cool. Perhaps if you had been more explicit in your reply?

I said nothing about agreeing with you. Why would you even think I was agreeing with you? I don't read daily Kos or moveon, but TPM is solid. Yes, it liberal but they have so much credibility that even you have used them.

Funny, I don't remember ever using TPM as a source on these boards. In fact I checked my 'favorites bar' and didn't find it there either. Perhaps you have mixed me up with someone else?

So your so called proof that there is a secret report is there is no proof there is a secret report. That is tinfoil hat territory. So using their logic since the American Thinker has never shown an ounce of intelligence or proof they must be intelligent and well supported
