I served as an IRS Criminal Investigation Division Special Agent from November of 1993 through February of 1999. Bill Clinton came into office in 1993, was impeached in 1998 and left office in early 2001, so I was very familiar with the numerous scandals that plagued Bill and Hillary Clinton, particularly two scandals that involved Hillary:
From my perspective as a criminal investigator at the time, I was appalled at the mounting evidence of corruption connected to both Bill and Hillary Clinton not only during Bill’s federal service, but the corruption that surrounded them in Arkansas as well. The documentary “The Clinton Chronicles” and other films delve into the Clintons’ suspicious conduct:
After I resigned from the IRS in 1999, I joined Robert Schulz and thousands of other concerned Americans working very hard to expose the true nature and extent of the average American’s federal income tax obligations, including taking many trips back to Washington, D.C. to provide evidence and testimony to the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the federal government that proved beyond any doubt that the average American living and working in the U.S.A. is not liable to pay the federal income tax nor required to file federal income tax returns.
In particular, I was part of a group of concerned citizens who went to the White House Executive Office Building on April 13, 2000 to provide evidence and testimony to Clinton Administration Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors Jason Furman regarding the illegal manner in which the federal income tax is administered and enforced.
After leaving the White House, Robert Schulz and I traveled to the U.S. Capitol to meet with and deliver petitions to House Speaker Dennis Hastert’s top aide William Koetzle and then with Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott’s top aide Keith Hennessey. We concluded our petitioning efforts with delivery of income tax petitions to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Sadly, the Clinton Administration would disappoint once again by refusing to investigate the evidence and testimony we provided, culminating in Jason Furman’s famous statement:
"The legality of the income tax is not a high priority item at the White House. Therefore, we have decided not to participate in any conference on the subject."
In hindsight, we have come to learn that the Clintons and their aides were too busy with serving their own self-interests and covering up their scandalous behavior s to examine concrete evidence that the IRS was lying to the American people about the true scope and nature of their income tax obligations.
Apparently, the Clintons and their aides were not the only government servants whose priority of keeping a lid on their scandalous behavior was higher than rescuing hundreds of millions of Americans from being forced to file income tax returns the law never made them liable to file or forced to pay an income tax the law never made them liable to pay. House Speaker Dennis Hastert may very well have shied away from his constitutional duty to investigate the income tax scam due to fears his child molestation practices as a high school teacher and football coach would be discovered. Eventually, Hastert’s attempts to cover up his crimes, crimes that prompted a federal judge at the time of his sentencing to refer to him as a “serial child molester”, led to a 15-month prison sentence.
To think that we in the tax honesty movement sincerely approached people like House Speaker Hastert, begging his office to investigate IRS crimes against the American people, unaware that Hastert was long-ago corrupted and co-opted, pains me greatly. If someone like Hastert, with such a volume of skeletons in his closet, could rise to level of Speaker Of The U.S. House Of Representatives, how likely is it that many elected officials have similar skeletons? How likely is it that elected officials with skeletons in their closets will NOT have their oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution nor the interests of their constituents anywhere near the top of their respective priority lists? How widespread is blackmail against such co-opted elected officials? There is growing evidence that blackmail of such officials is widespread.
After so many years in various high offices, the evidence is overwhelming that Bill and Hillary have spent most of their respective careers enriching themselves rather than taking care of the needs of the average working American.
I am very, very grateful that the Clintons did not return to the White House. However, in addition to the Office of the President doing nothing to investigate the misapplication of the income tax laws against the American people (including the George W. Bush Administration), the Congress, the Courts and the federal bureaucracy continue largely to shield the IRS and its management from being held accountable for breaking the law and violating the rights of law-abiding Americans. Ongoing investigations of even the latest despicable IRS targeting of conservative groups have gone on for over three years and I don’t know of a single firing, impeachment or jail term for Lois Lerner, Commissioner Greg Koskinen or the hundreds of bureaucrats involved in this scandal.
I know we are all tired of fighting government corruption but until enough Americans demand that the IRS stop illegally enforcing the income tax against Americans who are not liable to pay it, the IRS will continue to be a power unto itself. We need to come to grips with the likelihood that much of the top echelons of our federal government are either innately corrupt or blackmailed into corruption.
I hope that more Americans than ever will petition the new Trump Administration demanding an investigation into IRS administration and enforcement of the federal income tax, a tax that is illegally assessed against and collected from Americans to whom the law never made liable to pay in the first place – truly a case of “taxation without legislation”. We may never have a better chance to petition a presidential administration not tethered to corrupt special interests nor subjected to blackmail.
Don’t forget that Robert Schulz, Chairman of the We The People Foundation For Constitutional Education, his dedicated family, staff and thousands of volunteers, have already assembled an unprecedented array of evidence, testimony and petitioning proving the illegal application of the federal income tax system. Sadly, the federal government has either turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to this evidence or, in the case of the IRS and the Department of Justice, actively worked to discredit and destroy those who have tried to bring this evidence to the attention of the American people at large.

Most of all, we must pray that God will deliver us from this evil income tax system and send us leaders who possess the courage to expose and defeat it.
