Smidgen Mail – Justice Department Was Involved In IRS Targeting, Lerner Emails Reveal…

Forbes picks up on the IRS scandal being coordinated by the DOJ

holder and obama(Via Forbes)  Sadly, the 18 month investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups isn’t over, and it may be worse than anyone thought. A federal judge has broken loose more emails that the DOJ had surely hoped would never surface. The picture it reveals isn’t pretty. The documents prove that Lois Lerner met with DOJ’s Election Crimes Division a month before the 2010 elections.

It has to be embarrassing to the DOJ, which may not be the most impartial one to be investigating the IRS. In fact, the DOJ withheld over 800 pages of Lerner documents citing “taxpayer privacy” and “deliberative privilege.” Yet these internal DOJ documents show Ms. Lerner was talking to DOJ officials about prosecuting tax-exempt entities (yes, criminally!) two years before the IRS conceded there was inappropriate targeting.

Ms. Lerner met with top officials from the DOJ’s Election Crimes Branch in October of 2010. Although Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the DOJ (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice, No. 14-cv-01239), the DOJ coughed up dirt only on court order. Even then, the DOJ handed over only two pages of heavily redacted emails.

[…] Documents from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the IRS show that Ms. Lerner asked the DOJ whether tax-exempt entities could be criminally prosecuted. This May 8, 2013 email by Ms. Lerner went to Nikole C. Flax, Chief of Staff to Acting IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller, who would later be fired by President Obama:

“I got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ … He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s [sic] could talk to about Sen. Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement cases about applicants who “lied” on their 1024s–saying they weren’t planning on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible political expenditures. DOJ is feeling like it needs to respond, but want to talk to the right folks at IRS to see whether there are impediments from our side and what, if any damage this might do to IRS programs. I told him that sounded like we might need several folks from IRS…”

DOJ’s Mr. Pilger admitted that DOJ officials met Ms. Lerner in October 2010. Moreover, according to congressional investigators, a Lerner email from October 5, 2010 shows the IRS sent the FBI and DOJ a “1.1 million page database of information from 501(c)(4) tax exempt organizations” that contained confidential taxpayer information.  (read more)

    What I don’t understand is WHY Obama and everyone of these “pieces of sh*t” are NOT rounded up an thrown into jail – Obama is Jihad in the WH??? Imagine if you and I owed 4 million (plus) dollars in back taxes like Al Sharpton. The irony behind all this corruption is …. WE (the American people) COULD SHUT THEM DOWN BY REFUSING TO PAY ANOTHER CENT IN TAXES. Remember, there is more of us than “them (gov)”, so WHY are we allowing them to destroy our country and fund Obama’s terrorist buddies with OUR tax dollars!

    Madmax ….
    Like you, I (along with many other like minded people) have been banging our heads against the wall, trying to figure out a way to STOP this government. Since it is obvious, that the courts, the military, republicans, congress, etc… will NOT stop this administration, the only way is through “our taxes” – NOT paying them. However, the main obstacle with a tax revolt is …. thousands/millions of Americans have to be on board. Obviously it will NOT work UNLESS millions of us commit to such an endeavor.
    The only other thing that we (Americans) can do (which will also take a LARGE number of people) is to surround the WH, let them know that “we are NOT leaving until they are gone”. Imagine millions of Americans surrounding the WH (as far as the eye can see) demanding that Obama and congress vacate their post – it would certainly get their attention! LOL But, like the “tax revolt”, it will take LARGE numbers (millions) of us coming together to make anything happen.
    I believe that there is enough of us, but I agree “we must find a way to unite” to take back our WH and country. I’m open for any ideas on how to unite Americans – I fear if we don’t do something (and fast) it’s gonna be too late.

      Totally agree. However to unite that many people probably has to be done through the media or other outlets.
      The current slimeball, bootlicking media is not on our side.
      Also, any person of values, law and order will get demonized by the left wing nut jobs.
      I’m hoping there a few good people left in the military . We need a miracle.

      I wish each state would set up a trust fund to recieve our Federal income tax. Then our states would have to protect us from IRS thugs taking our property. The states would then have use of our Federal income tax in lou of the usual federal funds they recieve so they could not be blackmailed by the Federal government withholding such Federal funds. States could then regain states right, reduce the size of the federal government, getting Wash DC under control in the process. Federal income tax left in the trust fund could then be returned to DC forceing them to follow our Constitution in the future.

    I know two things that would stop some of this nonsense . TERM LIMITS and REPEAL of the 17th amendment.
    I’d also like to see the SCOTUS termed too. ( also one from each state of the union on a rotation)

  8. Wow. Finally. This is just more evidence that scandal fatigue works for those thugs in the Holder DOJ. But still – a victory for truth. SD called this way back when it seemed almost tin-foil. Now it’s becoming obvious even to the MSM (although the financial MSM is usually ahead of the pack). CNN should have this in time to ignore it as they proclaim the end of the world when Jebbie loses the nomination for reasons they simply cannot fathom.
