Some highlights from Peggy Noonan’s Wall Street Journal editorial…

“IRS scandal was connected this week not just to the Washington office—that had been established—but to the office of the chief counsel.

That is a bombshell….And Democrats know it. Which is why they are so desperate to make the investigation go away.

They know, as Republicans do, that the chief counsel of the IRS is one of only two Obama political appointees in the entire agency…

So: What the IRS originally claimed was a rogue operation now reaches up not only to the Washington office, but into the office of the IRS chief counsel himself…

Ms. Hofacre of the Cincinnati office testified that when she was given tea-party applications, she had to kick them upstairs…

Was she told to send liberal or progressive groups for special scrutiny? No, she did not scrutinize the applications of liberal or progressive groups. ‘I would send those to general inventory.’

Who got extra scrutiny? ‘They were all tea-party and patriot cases.’”

This new testimony is an absolute bombshell and may be the smoking gun that links the White House to the deliberate, intentional targeting and harassment of conservative Americans.

No matter what side of the aisle you are on, the actions of the IRS should enrage you.  And if the orders came down from the top, this is Nixonian in it’s level of corruption.
