President Obama has illegally used the government to target conservative organizations but of course liberals aren’t talking about it at all. His corruption, crimes and failures are all swept under the rug by the liberal media. They have had his back from the get go. Why? Beats the hell out of me.
However, conservative news sites such as ourselves refuse to let the Obama administration off so easily. And either is the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch!
The group has released documents in which the Department of Justice discussed ways to target conservative nonprofit groups at an October 2010 meeting. But there’s more.
New documents show that the Obama IRS scandal is also an Obama, DOJ and FBI scandal.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton- “The FBI and Justice Department worked with Lois Lerner and the IRS to concoct some reason to put President Obama’s opponents in jail before his reelection. And this abuse resulted in the FBI’s illegally obtaining confidential taxpayer information. How can the Justice Department and FBI investigate the very scandal in which they are implicated?”
The newly obtained records also reveal that the Obama DOJ wanted IRS employees who were going to testify to Congress to turn over documents to the DOJ before giving them to Congress. Records also detail how the Obama IRS gave the FBI 21 computer disks, containing 1.25 million pages of confidential IRS returns from 113,000 nonprofit social 501(c)(4) welfare groups – or nearly every 501(c)(4) in the United States – as part of its prosecution effort. According to a letter from then-House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, “This revelation likely means that the IRS – including possibly Lois Lerner – violated federal tax law by transmitting this information to the Justice Department.”
On April 16, 2014, Judicial Watch forced the IRS to release documents revealing for the first time that Lerner communicated with the DOJ in May 2013 about whether it was possible to launch criminal prosecutions against targeted tax-exempt entities. The documents were obtained due to court order in an October 2013 Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit filed against the IRS.
Those documents contained an email exchange between Lerner and Nikole C. Flax, then-chief of staff to then-Acting IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller discussing plans to work with the DOJ to prosecute nonprofit groups that “lied” (Lerner’s quotation marks) about political activities. The exchange included a May 8, 2013, email by Lerner:
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…
Lois Lerner is one of the biggest scumbags alive. What a pile of crap. And look at this corruption! This is seriously unbelievable!
Witness tampering, targeting of anyone that opposes the Marxist, and total abuse of power is all too common in the Obama administration. These people play dirty. REAL DIRTY!
America needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Unfortunately, the people on the left are A: Brainless B: Brainwashed C: Useless D: Garbage E: Foul F: Braindead G: Disgusting etc. lol!
Let’s hope all these corrupt government officials get prosecuted and put in prison for their crimes. After all, the normal Joe can’t get away with jack but these a holes are somehow getting away with murder! Screw them all. God Bless. Dean James RIGHTWING TRIBUNE
