Judicial Watch and Daily Caller Are On Trail To “The Red List” – The IRS/DOJ “Research Project”….

The Daily Caller is reporting on, what Judicial Watch is finding.   Both are beginning to find the trail to the “Schedule B” data used to assemble the “Red List”, or the targeting list.

Judicial watch FOIA inquiry has found internal IRS communications about a “Secret Research Project“. This project we have previously identified was a compilation of individual names and organizations the DOJ deemed antithetical to the goals of the Obama administration.

The “Red List” was created as an outcome of the Schedule B filings illegally released by the IRS to the DOJ as part of their collaborative efforts.

(Daily Caller) The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) improperly obtained donor lists from nonprofit groups as part of a “secret research project” being run by Lois Lerner and other officials.

IRS official David Fish revealed the “secret research project” in a June 27, 2012 email to Lerner’s direct subordinate Holly Paz, according to emails released Thursday by the nonprofit group Judicial Watch, which obtained the emails in a pending Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

“Joseph Urban [IRS Technical Advisor, Tax Exempt and Government Entities] had actually started a secret research project on whether we could, consistent with 6104, argue that [REDACTED],” Fish wrote.

“Joe was quite agitated yesterday when I told him what we were doing. (He was involved when the initial question was raised, but we didn’t continue reading him in),” Fish continued. “At one point he started saying that this was a decision for Steve Miller–I told him we were already doing it, and that I didn’t know whether Lois had already talked to Nikole [Flax, former IRS Chief of Staff to IRS Commissioner Steve Miller] about this. Would not be surprised if he already started working on Lois.”

“Thanks for the heads up,” Paz replied. “The decision was made by Steve, based on advice from P and A. [Procedure and Administration].”

Lois Lerner and Nikole Flax, who were both part of the “secret research project,” both suffered computer crashes that allegedly wiped out their emails, according to the IRS. (read more)

      That’s a great question. Last I heard (IIRC), a committee recommended it, so they were going to hold a vote on the floor of the House. Did they? What happened?

  4. All of the IRS personnel who were involved should be prosecuted. More than one will roll over on Holder and Obama because they are all scum and would do anything for money and power .

    The federal “investigative committees” need to start interviewing and sending subpoena’s to the DOJ personnel. Who are on record with contact and interest within the targeting scheme.

    If they fail to take that approach, in my opinion, they are not interested in fully revealing this story.

    Federal charges against each and everyone of these low lifes is needed including Holder. To think they can keep losing emails and no one will do anything about it is concerning. This is the worst corrupt government we have ever witnessed.

      This seems straight forward to me. Emails which exist on backup servers fall within the scope of documents to be produced. They were not produced or even searched for on the backup servers. Motion to compel, order to compel, followed by motion for order to show cause why they should not be held in contempt. Final step, head of IRS is taken into custody of federal marshal and held until documents are produced. Most federal judges (and often this will be done by a federal magistrate) will cut through this crap like a blow torch through butter.

      Example Case Law:

      The [responding party] must therefore conduct a search of all depositories of electronic information in which one may reasonably expect to find all emails to Peskoff, from Peskoff, or in which the word “Peskoff” appears. Once the search is completed, [responding party] must make the results available to [requesting party] in the same format as the electronically stored information was previously The [responding party] must therefore conduct a search of all depositories of electronic information in which one may reasonably expect to find all emails to Peskoff, from Peskoff, or in which the word “Peskoff” appears. Once the search is completed, [responding party] must make the results available to [requesting party] in the same format as the electronically stored information was previously made available. [The responding party] must also file a statement under oath by the person who conducts the search, explaining how the search was conducted, of which electronic depositories, and how it was designed to produce and did in fact produce all of the emails I have just described. I must insist that the person performing the search have the competence and skill to do so comprehensively. An evidentiary hearing will then be held, at which I expect the person who made the attestation to testify and explain how he or she conducted the search, his or her qualifications to conduct the search, and why I should find the search was adequate.

    I think Issa needs to subpoena about two dozen IRS employees from the bottom up and if they don’t come to the hearing with all documents requested, place them in contempt of Congress and throw them in jail immediately. The little fish will be singing like members of the Metropolitan Opera in no time and by the end of the week, the whole mess will be completely exposed. Low level employees KNOW what’s going on up the food chain and they aren’t about to lose their jobs, benefits, and retirement to protect political administrators. If Congress really wants the answers (and THAT is not necessarily a given, as Sundance notes!) they have the power to obtain them in a very timely manner.

      If Issa’s committee places them in contempt, isn’t it Eric Holder’s job to see that they are arrested & charged. If IRS employee(s) are placed in contempt, what are the odds that nothing will occur other than a notation in their employee files? The Attorney General himself is in contempt of Congress, and other than this little minor statement on his resume, he has yet to held responsible in a court.

        The committee that issues the contempt citation can order the person arrested and jailed if they choose. Congressional committees have usually gotten what they needed without resorting to having them tossed in the clink. But that was before this administration.

          Thank you. I’ve never seen an example of Congress ordering an arrest, and it’s not a process that I’ve ever attempted to educate myself about. I appreciate your response.
