WH Counsel Met 3Xs With Treas. Lawyer In 2012

From the Daily Caller:

Ruemmler met one-on-one with Treasury lawyer long before April

By Charles C. Johnson | May 23, 2013

Although White House Chief Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler claims to have learned about the IRS audit scandal only last month, she had three unprecedented one-on-one meetings last year with the Treasury Department’s chief lawyer, who has known about the inspector general’s investigation of the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative nonprofits since at least June 2012.

The Treasury lawyer in turn has a long history of extreme left-wing agitation.

Christopher J. Meade, Treasury Chief Counsel, met with Ruemmler on September 27th, December 11th, and December 13th, 2012, according to White House Visitor Records requests. The two had never met one-on-one prior to these meetings…

The two also met with fifteen other people on July 2nd, 2012 and with fifteen other people on July 17th.

The unusual timing of the meetings suggest that Ruemmler and potentially other White House members may have known of the IRS Inspector General Report months earlier than has been reported.

Meade himself is a long-time left-wing activist whose history of agitation goes back to his Ivy League days.

As a Princeton undergraduate, Meade, along with two other students, was arrested in February 1990 for disorderly conduct after disrupting Vice President Dan Quayle’s speech to Congressional Republicans…

Meade was particularly anti-Republican. “Give me any issue, and I’ll tell you why we’re protesting the Bush administration’s policy on it,” Meade told the Daily Princetonian, citing Quayle’s favoring of “hardline military spending” and U.S. intervention in Central America and Panama…

The arrest was the culmination of a long period of left-wing agitation at Princeton…

Meanwhile, Kathryn Ruemmler is also quite partisan, in her fashion.

From the FEC records:

In all, Ms. Ruemmler gave at least $7,850 dollars to Democrat candidates. In fact, she even seems to have exceeded the legal limit for contributions to Obama in 2008. But none of this was partisan.

But all of this aside, we are told that even after Treasury lawyer told Obama’s Chief Counsel Ruemmler about what the IRS was doing, she did not tell Obama. But why else do you tell the White House Counsel anything, unless it is meant to go straight to the President?

It doesn’t make any sense.
