Smidgen Alert – IRS Withheld Document From Inspector General Showing Existence Of IRS Email Tapes….

Oh, what a tangled web is weaved….

The IRS inspector general, tasked with the internal IRS investigation, reveals to House Oversight Committee that the IRS withheld the documents showing the existence of the back-up tapes which contain internal IRS email communication, thought to contain the missing Lois Lerner emails.

Watch Jim Jordan:

All of this, ALL OF THIS, is because the IRS is trying desperately to hide the chain of communication showing the IRS and Senior White House administration officials , specifically Jack Lew, creating a scheme to target political opposition.

The evidence so far showcases a chain of communication from the initial discussion with the Obama Administration toward the IRS and Dept of Justice.

As a result of that strategy planning, the DOJ and IRS formulated a plan to use 501(c)(4) applications and tax filings to pull out the attached “Schedule B’s” – which are the forms listing the groups sponsors (individuals and organizations).

Those “Schedule B” lists were then assembled into a SECRET TARGETING LIST. The DOJ then used the “targeting list” (the DOJ Secret Research List) to send forth various compliance and regulatory agencies to audit, review and inspect the activity of those on the list.

The regulatory agencies sent by the DOJ included: OSHA, ATF, FBI, EPA and Labor Dept. (perhaps more) who then put targeted individuals, groups and businesses through the rigorous inspection of regulation and compliance. In short the weaponization of government against them.

    When is it going to be inherent contempt time? Of course the republicans couldn’t go that route. Because if they did the media would call them a bunch of meanies. They would also be disinvited from all the DC cocktail parties.

        It seems like the only real investigation is being done by JW and a few others in discovery phase of private lawsuits. Civil discovery. But the mighty oversight committees only wail and moan when JW finds some evidence, then do nothing. The number one priority of GOP-E seems to be amnesty and achieving minority status again.

    Wouldn’t you just love to know the contents of those tapes? There’s so many of them. No wonder Lois Lerner plead the fifth. I really had doubted these “missing” tapes would ever be found. Maybe this is one scandal that will have consequences after all. I hope so but wonder.

    So the blatantly obvious truth that many of us here knew was a blatantly obvious truth is…well…a blatantly obvious truth. EVERY Federal agency has all of its crap backed up at least once and you CANNOT diddle with the main system or the backup without leaving Krusty the Clown-sized footprints. What I want to know is whom(s) lied about there being no backups and whom(s) backed up the no backup story.
    The entire IT staff in IRS, and most of the underlings, know for a fact there are backups as part of the ‘no diddling with the tax data’ warnings the staff are regularly hit with is that everything’s backed up and stored just to make sure you don’t get creative in fudging your or someone else’s return. For that matter every Federal employee who inputs or accesses any Federal database is told that you leave footprints and it’s best you don’t try to change the database as there’s at least one backup that can be accessed to trip you up. Who tried to sneak this huge pile of compost into the hearings and pass it off as vanilla pudding? Was it stupidity, perfidy, desperation or – guess we’re back to ‘stupidity’ – that led someone to believe that the huge, giant-industrial-sized lie about the emails being lost to posterity wouldn’t ‘out’ within minutes to anyone with the commonsense of a goose. OK, so it took Congress a bit longer but they’re…special.
    If for no other reason than the pure insult of daring to serve the ‘sorry, they were all erased’ excuse someone should be pilloried and forced to eat franchised roast beef sandwiches for a month.

      It’s hard to imagine the exact number of people who had to be complicit in one way or another to pull this off; although I suppose much of that complicity occurred by the simple act of following regulations they were given or responding to emails/memos/instructions they received from one day to the next. Quite a tower of soup cans.

        All the workers that followed issued orders or guidelines to try and cover up and proclaim that all emails were lost and not backed up are also guilty of a crime. Where is personal responsibility to ethics? In all the companies I have worked at, each employee is required to sign a personal ethics questionnaire every year swearing you have done nothing wrong and that you know no one else has done anything wrong to violate any rules, regulations, etc. There are a lot of people that worked there that have their hands dirty and should be punished.

        I take my personal ethics very seriously and have refused to go along with plans in a Company that violated some rule or regulation. It is up to the employee to make sure their superiors are fully advised that what the superiors are proposing to do is corrupt and illegal. If superiors choose to ignore your advice make sure you document how you advised them and the discussion you had in order to protect yourself.

        I remember there was someone in the financial area of the last company Headquarters I worked at that one day just started yelling, screaming if you think I am going o go along with what you are proposing and put my signature on it, the answer is NO – I am not going to go to jail for the company! He said he quit and just walked out the door. He also released an email sent to a few people he knew in the company telling them the story and we heard about it by word of mouth from his friends..

        I really admired that guy!!!!

      Bring her back put her under oath again then put her in jail if she won’t talk.

      At trial, the Fifth Amendment gives a criminal defendant the right not to testify. This means that the prosecutor, the judge, and even the defendant’s own lawyer cannot force the defendant to take the witness stand against his or her will. However, a defendant who does choose to testify cannot choose to answer some questions but not others. Once the defendant takes the witness stand, this particular Fifth Amendment right is considered waived throughout the trial.

    Here’s why the tapes were hard to find……………………….

    An IRS employee tasked with trying to restore and obtain emails on Lois Lerner’s IRS computer’s hard drive was legally blind. Stephen Manning, the deputy chief information officer for strategy and modernization at the IRS, submitted an affidavit in the True the Vote vs. IRS litigation regarding the persons and procedures used to attempt to recover Lois Lerner’s hard drive containing emails pertaining to Tea Party targeting.

    The affidavit can be read here. Paragraph 14 describes the educational background of the person searching for data on Lois Lerner’s hard drive:

    “According to the Specialist, prior to joining the Internal Revenue Service … training was completed through Lions World Services for the Blind.”

          Yep I get it.
          a controversial executive action, President Gerald Ford pardons his disgraced predecessor Richard Nixon for any crimes he may have committed or participated in while in office. Ford later defended this action before the House Judiciary Committee, explaining that he wanted to end the national divisions created by the Watergate scandal.


          • Ford should have left it alone and let it remained burned into the national consciousness. Just watched All the Presidents Men again the other night. Irrespective to parties, the Watergate scandal laid the groundwork for the kind of BS we’re finding from another corrupt administration. Nixon cracked the mold. Obama’s people excavated it.

    I don’t think those in power know how close We the People are to saying to hell with it and collecting scalps. This scandal goes to the very core of the faith the public has in their government. This kind of thing is what gets put into elementary school history books for the next five hundred years. But the public just yawns, and says big deal, you just hate the President because you’re a racist.

    I’m a Dallas Cowboys fan and I must admit that no matter what you keep on rooting for your team. But I remember on draft day last year saying to myself, “This is it. If Jerry Jones drafts Manziel I’m jumping ship!” What is it going to take for the Democratic Party to wake up and the Republicans to take action? How can you not be a conspiracy theorist???


    • doodahdaze says:

      The democrats are wide awake and part of the coverup. At this point everyone knows there is a criminal conspiracy that reaches the White Hut. The Republicans will take no action. That there is as bad as the coverup and aiding and abeting. So it is left to the Civil Actions. Not a theorist though. Facts are upon the table and exist. It is just a matter of following the rules with an honest prosecutor. That is the link. The DOJ prosecutor is probably an Obammunist. Just like Lerner, a ringer and a part of the crime. Trying not to find evidence.

    The IRS hiding the documents revealing the existance of the back up tapes, a blind man leading the search for them, if you wrote a book for the Barnes and Noble fiction aisle with plot details such as these, no one would buy the book because the plot would be unbelievable.

      Bought or compromised. Pretty much the whole lot.

      Will we soon hear that the government is too corrupt to save, that we need a new Constitution that will restrict the powers of government to what it “must do for the people”, like the human right to housing, education, health care, guaranteed wages, etc., to prevent this from ever happening again? I’ve heard it kicked around for some time, in one form or another. We already have the most restrictive Constitution ever to limit central government, a distribution of powers, a check and balance system to keep one branch from usurping another and one where our rights aren’t granted by government, but are supposed to be protected by it. Politicians and their political hacks have ignored it. What makes anyone think giving government more power to do what it “must do for the people”, thereby giving government control over our rights, will work better? The Constitution hasn’t failed. Generations of self-serving politicians have.

      I know I keep making this point about being clear about who or what is at fault for all the corruption and protecting the Constitution above any politician, party or divergent ideology, but I see it bubbling up in the under-cauldron of the social-engineering crowd…again. Plant the seed, then wait for the storm to frighten people into agreeing to anything to stop the pain and fear. IMO, when someone tells you what they want to do, it’s foolish not to believe them.

      The Constitution is like a cake recipe. You can’t change all the ingredients, then complain that the reason your cake is mushy mess is because the recipe was bad.
