(Talk Radio News Service) Lanny Davis, a familiar figure in Washington circles, wrote Friday that White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler should quit her job if she intentionally failed to inform President Obama ahead of time about the IRS scandal.

Davis, who served as President Clinton’s special counsel from 1996-1998, said multiple reporters have told him that Ms. Ruemmler knew that a Treasury Inspector General was probing alleged wrongdoing at the IRS “for several days, perhaps weeks” before Obama found out last Friday.

“With all due respect to someone who has impeccable legal credentials, if she did have such fore-knowledge and didn’t inform the president immediately, I respectfully suggest Ms. Ruemmler is in the wrong job and she should resign,” Davis wrote in an op-ed that appeared in multiple publications today.
