This whole deal has to start with the question “Which one of you is without corruption?” in which case, NOBODY is going to look to hard for the truth. Much like Benghazi, my other new post, we see that there are so many fingerprints on this illegal activity that there is literally no one able to investigate or arrest or prosecute anyone!! It is like we are living in Prohibition era Chicago and everyone INCLUDING THE FEDS are on the take!
The Internal Revenue Service may have been caught violating federal tax law: In October 2010, the agency sent a database on 501(c)(4) social-welfare groups containing confidential taxpayer information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to documents obtained by a House panel.
The information was transmitted in advance of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s meeting the same month with Justice Department officials about the possibility of using campaign-finance laws to prosecute certain nonprofit groups. E-mails between Lerner and Richard Pilger, the director of the Justice Department’s election-crimes branch, obtained through a subpoena to Attorney General Eric Holder, show Lerner asking about the format in which the FBI preferred the data to be sent.
“This revelation that the IRS sent 1.1 million pages of nonprofit tax-return data — including confidential taxpayer information — to the FBI confirms suspicions that the IRS worked with the Justice Department to facilitate the potential investigation of nonprofit groups engaged in lawful political speech,” Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa, a California Republican, and subcommittee chairman Jim Jordan wrote in a letter to IRS commissioner John Koskinen. The two lawmakers also raise questions about the timing of the meeting, just weeks before the 2010 midterm elections, when Republicans recaptured a majority in the House of Representatives.
The Justice Department never prosecuted social-welfare groups, and e-mails from IRS officials show their awareness that, as a result of the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision in the Citizens United case, which allowed unlimited amounts of money from nonprofit groups and labor unions to flow into the political process, the law did not favor a crackdown on anonymous donations to politically orientated nonprofits, which sprouted up on all sides in the wake of the ruling. “We don’t have the law to do something,” an IRS official responsible for tax-exempt organizations said in a September 2010 e-mail.
Now have have the love triangle of Lerner’s IRS asking the DOJ to see if she can prosecute conservative organization, and then sending- illegally- to the FBI files the FBI should not have! That is a conspiracy involving federal felonies! No wonder when asked the FBI assistant director could not name the lead agent involved in the investigation. BECAUSE THERE IS NO INVESTIGATION!!!
How would the FBI do that? It would look like an old Bob Newhart stand up routine with him on the phone!
“Huh, Fred. Listen..uh remember last year when the IRS sent you 1.1 million records to review on tax payers? I know, the DOJ said it was cool, but wouldn’t you know it, its a felony!! So, uh, could you bring the files to me now? Oh, you shredded them. The DOJ told you that was okay too. Alrighty then, I guess if there is no evidence, then there is no crime!”
