IRS official Lois Lerner has agreed to testify in front of Congress today. Still, the media and Republicans in Congress are missing the larger picture. On Wednesday they shouldn't just ask Lerner about the targeting of Tea Party groups; they should also ask her about the targeting of individual critics of Obama, like me.
This scandal is much bigger than Tea Party groups. It is a widespread criminal conspiracy to attack, punish and silence Obama's critics and political opposition. The second of Nixon's Articles of Impeachment was for the crime of using the IRS to punish his political opponents. Don't look now, but we've got another Nixon in the White House. The difference is that Barack Obama's IRS scandal makes Richard Nixon look like a minor league rookie.
