They -- investigation by the daily caller indicates that the IRS enemies list scandal has deeper ties to the White House than we originally thought here's why according to the report quote.
Publicly release records show that embattled former IRS commissioner Douglas show one.
Visited the White House at least a 157 times during the Obama administration.
More recorded visits than even the most trusted members of the president's cabinet.
Now these numbers are downright scary especially since Doug showman he tried to downplay why he visited the White House during his testimony -- lawmakers remember this.
You Siri didn't talk to anyone at the White House about this issue mr.
About singling out conservative groups.
-- special scrutiny.
Well that's or talk about isn't absolutely sure I did not talk to and 118 -- a -- come up in a casual conversation.
After a 132 members of congress contacted you about you Sherry didn't bring it up with anybody at the White House.
And not to my memory there might be many reasons you would be at the White House.
What would be some of the reasons you might -- -- the -- us.
On the Easter egg roll.
With my kids.
Well an odd questions about the administer ability.
Tax policy are they were thinking out.
-- a lot of Easter egg rolls mr.
showman joining me now -- reaction from the daily caller Tucker Carlson.
Radio talk show host she's in Atlanta Leslie Marshall pulled Fox's conservative made a 101.
It was a 118 times a talker.
To tell -- about this investigation I gagged I read it earlier today and it's pretty fascinating when you make the comparisons.
Well this and we we -- publicly available White House visitor logs and compared them we -- turns out that the congress of the -- times or is that a 157.
Visits -- about administration by actual and we compared that to visits.
By cabinet members.
Cabinet secretaries and the Obama administration and he outstripped all of them now.
The about administration's not entirely transparent about who visits the White House and when not all visits are logged unfortunately.
Outrageously actually but the ones that are indicate he went.
This many times multiples of the times say Ray LaHood -- now compare this by the way to mark ever -- -- was his predecessor.
At IRS that former commissioner who during the Bush Administration went eight total for the whole four years he worked for bush one time.
To the White House and -- -- a 157.
The White House Easter egg roll.
Does not explain that and by the way there is no explanation so far from the White House I think there's gonna have to be.
But you also according to -- your analysis of the visitor access records that show that every current and former member of president Obama's cabinet.
Would have had to -- up at least sixty more public visits exactly to the White House to catch up to showman.
Now I would think there's a lot of important secretary positions there including Hillary Clinton's use only their what 43 times according earpiece and and other prominent to tax cheat Tim Geithner forty some odd times right -- -- 157 times.
Again these are from the official White House visitor logs these -- not numbers that we made up this is what the Obama administration.
Is reporting what possible scenario could account.
For a 157.
Visits the White House which is.
By definition not a special policy is made but we're politics practiced well in my David plot had a political operation running out of the White House.
During this time this was an election year this was election season what could possibly have been going on how Leslie.
Times he needs sixty more visits if -- Hillary Clinton to begin to catch up to the IRS commissioner.
Help me -- more than 67 no more than a hundred more visits and -- well then I'm not see Monty you.
Well actually I had a better answer than Easter egg roll which should be romance obviously.
That the president likes Chris Christie -- -- for showman I don't know that doesn't really answer as.
The real answer is what Tucker just said and admitted the daily caller did and I will commend them for that is that we don't know the exact number of everyone's visits because unfortunately not everyone has logged in certainly not cabinet members they don't always -- and they're not required to so it's not every single visit and -- way to put McGregor -- 150 -- -- shot -- -- -- the -- -- -- have a -- and if you're gonna have a clandestine dying meeting.
About targeting conservative groups the president is not a stupid man you're gonna happen at the White House and how -- officially tapped into his -- a 118.
Times to target these groups but it's just pushes it just shows -- -- Commissioner went there once he's there a 157.
Hillary Clinton logged in 43 public business tax cheat Geithner 48 publicly known visits.
That these numbers of -- out of -- Tucker that we won't.
-- -- well that's what we here's what's not plausible okay.
I I don't believe that all 157 visits were devoted to crushing the Tea Party but what's not believable maybe they where we don't know what's not believable is.
The idea that showman who had knowledge of this keep -- -- the IRS was aware an administration official some of them were aware of this was happening months back last year.
That this was never discussed the -- IRS new.
They had this this potential explosive scandal on its hands that this is about to become public and that was never discussed that anybody in the White House are you serious and I did so early Easter egg comment of his when -- there a hundred that they -- execute a little funny answer but.
A 157 times a -- and it seems to me to border on contempt of congress.
Especially considering that the seriousness of what -- -- what we're investigating here -- I wouldn't disagree that it was being more than start key it certainly wouldn't have been my response there for investigations going on if there is a special independent counsel I just can't see shall -- taking the fall especially as the bush appointee for President Obama but -- -- -- democratically.
Yeah yeah yeah but at the same time -- the press the president is not going to be linked to that.
This I am I confident about our investigations -- that -- saw a 157.
To one and it didn't tax dollars and 157.
To one visit and that doesn't raise any questions in your liberal mind.
Well I didn't say I don't agree with Tucker that the White House should explain.
Why he was there but I do think pushing for tax reform it -- that you're discussing health care.
-- -- at Easter egg on my side.
I don't police said they were talking targeting the Tea Party because the president's just market that they own identity as a way to lose a political operation maybe somebody else in the White House but certainly we need an answer but all right guys think Lieberman wants appreciated -- -- still ahead.
