What do you think was in the 24,000 Lois Lerner emails the IRS destroyed AFTER a subpoena and order to preserve the was issued?
It has been painfully obvious for over 3 years that the Obama Regime considered the IRS a weapon to use against its political “enemies,” and used it to bully and intimidate conservative groups ahead of the 2012 election. Of course, that didn’t stop Barack Obama from going on his BFF Jon Stewart’s show last week to lie through his braying jackass teeth about it, claiming that some low-level employees at the IRS, apparently just like the Cambridge police, acted “stupidly,” because of a “crummy law,” and–here we go again–not enough of your money.
Wrong, Jackass. Only your brain-dead worshippers who get their “news” from silly comedians believe that.
From the Washington Times:
The IRS turned over 906 pages of emails July 15 to Judicial Watch, a conservative public interest law firm, ahead of a Wednesday court hearing. Judicial Watch concluded that the emails were part of the messages Ms. Lerner lost in a computer malfunction, and released them Tuesday.
“This material shows that the IRS‘ cover-up began years ago,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. “We now have smoking-gun proof that top officials in the Obama IRS unlawfully harassed taxpayers just to keep them from complaining to Congress about IRS‘ targeting and abuse. No wonder the Obama IRS has had such little interest in preserving or finding LoisLerner’s emails. …
According to the new emails, Ms. Lerner and her colleagues were aware of the growing outcry among nonprofit groups that they were being delayed.
In one Nov. 3, 2011, exchange between Ms. Lerner and Cindy Thomas, a program manager in the Cincinnati office that was handling the cases and was involved in a back-and-forth with Washington, the IRS admitted to having hundreds of cases stacked up and awaiting action.
Afraid of congressional pressure, Ms. Thomas ordered one of the inquiry letters to be sent, just to prevent one of the organizations being held up from complaining.
“Just today, I instructed one of my managers to get an additional information letter out to one of these organizations — if nothing else to buy time so he didn’t contact his Congressional Office,” she wrote in the email released by Judicial Watch.
So the IRS, fearful that one of the victims of their despicable misuse of their authority would complain and invite Congressional scrutiny, sent out letters to intimidate them. Gee, I guess Obama lied again, as difficult as that is to believe.
Keep in mind that we recently learned that, despite a subpoena and and order to preserve evidence from the agency’s chief technology officer, the IRS destroyed 24,000 of Ms. Lerner’s emails. What do you think was in those messages?
