More Pretend Law Enforcement from Congress over Criminal IRS Behavior

If Republicans were serious about criminal IRS behavior they would have already sent a SWAT team to Lerner’s home, and seized all of her personal computers (as has been done with so many innocent, average citizens by the IRS in the past few years). From the Committees on Ways and Means: “Camp Sends More Evidence of Criminal Wrongdoing to DOJ.” Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) sent additional evidence to the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding the April 9, 2014 criminal Read more […]

So Just HOW Did the Lois Lerner Hard Drive Get Scratched at the IRS?

What an amazing set of “coincidences.” “Failed” computers, prematurely “retired” equipment, dumping the IT backup vendor just after the investigation began: these guys make Watergate look like knocking off a kid’s lemonade stand. As the Daily Caller reports, Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer hard drive was “scratched” and the data on it was still recoverable. But the IRS did not try to recover the data from Lerner’s hard drive, despite recommendations from in-house IRS IT experts Read more […]

Dear Congress: About Those Hard Drives — If You Aren’t Part of the Solution…

“…the FEC recycled Ms. Sands’ hard drive before the [Office of the Inspector General] was able to seize it…” (source). As The Blaze reported, “Would You Believe, Another Crashed Hard Drive?” House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Monday made yet another request to the federal government for details about a crashed hard drive that may have contained information allowing criminal charges to be brought against a federal official. Issa’s newest Read more […]

Lois Lerner Suddenly Remembers She DID Keep Copies of Email. What Jogged Her Memory?

A WaPo wow. Lois Lerner is, indeed, the tip of a very cold and ugly iceberg that needs to experience severe, special-prosecutor-led anthropogenic “climate change” until the agency is completely melted, and overflows in a devastating flood that inundates a bunch of high political offices. From Ed Rogers column: “The Insiders: More IRS smidgens show up. ‘Perfect.’” In a stunning revelation this week, it was disclosed that former IRS official Lois Lerner told colleagues,“we need to be Read more […]

Clarification: Lois Lerner Sought Method for Hidden Communication with Other Federal Bureucrats

Mark Horne posted about this from the Washington Examiner, including quoting the story about “OCS messages.” Not everyone may realize the import of “OCS,” so let me give you some excerpts from the Washington Times story: Just as the IRS tea party targeting scandal was erupting, Lois G. Lerner warned colleagues to “be cautious” about what information they put in emails because it could end up being turned over to Congress, according to an email message released Wednesday. The 2013 Read more […]

Lois Lerner Was Concerned About What Got Included In IRS Emails

I may be wrong, but it seems to me that, if Lois Lerner was concerned about what got included in email messages, then she might also have been worried about the existence of those emails. I think it would be very likely. It seems that we have direct evidence that she was worried about the content of the emails she was sending and receiving. The Washington Examiner’s Mark Tapscott writes: Embattled former Internal Revenue Service senior executive Lois Lerner cautioned colleagues against Read more […]

IRS “Prematurely Retired” Computer Data Storage Devices

In an exclusive, the Daily Caller reports, IRS commissioner John Koskinen testified before Congress that ex-official Lois Lerner’s emails were lost in a June 2011 computer crash and that her hard drive storing those emails was “recycled.” The IRS also claimed that it lost emails from six other employees due to separate computer crashes. U.S. Archivist David Ferriero said that the IRS “did not follow the law,” which requires government agencies to keep email records, to print out emails Read more […]

Perjury Recorded for Us with No Penalty Attached: the IRS Emails

Watch this March exchange for just a few seconds, from about 1:15-2:00. Rep. Trey Gowdy questions IRS Commissioner John Koskinen about his agencies response to the IRS targeting scandal. Why is this significant? Because the one month section of Lois Lerner’s emails for which Mr. Gowdy asks are among those the IRS now claims were allegedly “lost” in a hard drive crash. Yet in official testimony in the past few days, John Koskinen is said to have known BEFORE this hearing that the emails Mr. Read more […]

Congress, It is Time for a Real Inquisition! Fight the IRS for Real!

From Townhall.com: As the IRS continues to claim it ‘lost’ or ‘threw away’ Lois Lerner’s emails, the agency fails to mention that until recently, they had a contract with an email backup company: The IRS had a contract with email backup service vendor Sonasoft starting in 2005, according to FedSpending.org, which lists the contract as being for “automatic data processing services.” Sonasoft’s motto is “email archiving done right,” and the company lists the IRS as a customer. For proof, Twitchy posted this Read more […]

Mocking the IRS Only Works If You Actually Abolish the IRS

Republican Texas Representative Steve Stockman put out a press release Friday that said in part: Taxpayers who do not produce documents for the Internal Revenue Service will be able to offer a variety of dubious excuses under legislation introduced by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) a week after the IRS offered an incredibly dubious excuse for its failure to turn documents over to House investigators. “The United States was founded on the belief government is subservient and accountable to the Read more […]

IRS Is Deliberately Structured to Stop Scrutiny

Since we are in the middle of an evidence-destruction scandal on top of a government harassment scandal, it is easy to overlook that we also have a Federal-bureaucracy-that-makes-itself-unaccountable scandal. I’m not talking about this specific instance of claiming the hard drive ate the email. I’m talking about IRS policy which was deliberately designed to give bureaucrats secrecy so that they can never be prosecuted. Consider this CNN Report, put out before the hearings yesterday, which Read more […]

Jay Sekulow Going After Evidence-Destroying IRS

Congress may be dunked in a bucket of yellow paint, but let me tell you something: I know Jay Sekulow. I have worked with and for Jay Sekulow. When you look up “bulldog” in the encyclopedia, you will see his face.From this brief interview, I can see that Jay is… … … a bit upset. Contrary to the pink panty wearers from John Boehner on down in Congress—on both sides of the aisle, because I will remind you that with Richard Nixon, it was his own Party that filed the Articles of Impeachment Read more […]
