Skip to comments.IRS finally agrees to turn over ALL Lois Lerner emails to House Republicans - a day after she´s

Less than a day after former IRS official Lois Lerner was found in criminal contempt of Congress, her old agency has agreed to turn over copies of all her emails and other correspondence to one of the Republican-led House committees investigating the scandal that led to her retirement. The agency´s quick concession came after Wednesday night´s 231-178 contempt vote, which closely followed the passage of a second resolution demanding the appointment of a nonpartisan ´special counsel´ at the Department of Justice. Lerner has twice refused to answer questions in congressional hearings after lawmakers issued a subpoena for her appearance. ´This

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The redaction’s will make her emails worthless. We’re dealing with experienced Chicago thugs.
smell those diesel fumes yet, Lois? (Or has Obama upgraded to an electric bus?)
Hope this evil witch Lois Lerner doesn’t fall on her sword for her religion of socialism and her high priest Barack Obama
The redaction and shredders plus the hard drive destruction will make any surviving emails and computer forinsics worthless. I suppose all of her personnel computers have been professionally wiped clean also.

Yep, the only way to bring down the Lerner IRS mafia is for someone involved in the operation to chose their country over ObamaCash.
Will Elijah Cummings emails be included? That will help tell us the value of this document dump.
Career government employees believe the Government IS the better part of the country. No one in the operation of significance is going to believe the country is better off without them.
If you are inside the government as an employee, you are naturally against the party which wants to reduce your power.
Obama didn't even have to ask...but he did anyway.
How does the House know how many e-mails she has in total? So they hand over 1,000 but leave out 100 incriminating ones. Do you think for one minute they are going to turn over anything incriminating?
Also, why is it the Dems always find a singing canary like John Dean or Mark Felt but the GOP NEVER does? Whether it’s Whitewater or Lewinski or the IRS or Benghazi-—no one ever sings. The GOP never gets a Deep Throat. I don’t care how hard Trey Gowdy digs, it’s going to be unresolved. Sources will take the 5th, disappear, or otherwise be uncooperative.
They will withhold information, deny everything, and the press will tar and feather the effort as a partisan witchhunt. Eventually it will just be forgotten.
but it happens because the democrats/marxists control the news media
we are living in the matrix , a false reality created by the news media . until a large % of Americans realize this we will never win our freedom back. the media must be exposed and defeated first.
i truly believe every single email and letter will bve turned over.
You know they will be heavily redacted, that’s whats been taking so long.
You know they will be heavily redacted, thats whats been taking so long.
If they actually turn over the real information, that would be a great confirmation that our system still works. Otherwise, its third world man and buckle up.
Choose communist China over cash?
Remember Lisa Jackson of the EPA?
She was using non-official e-mail accounts to conduct government business in order to keep them from being made public.
I’m guessing that’s pretty much SOP for all of Obamas Kakistocracy.
Your memory is profound. That one had escaped me till read your post.
Lots of people in the IRS understand the law... no one’s going to destroy evidence. They’ll make it difficult to get but it won’t disappear.
Exactly, its naive to think that anything of value on this investigation still exists in any computer anywhere. The scrubbing beagan months ago.
THe only hope is that they scrub something that still exists somewhere else that they don’t know about. That’s what usually trips them up.
From the Clinton scandals in the 1990s, we know that his team of crooks PAID OFF witnesses (like Monica Lewinsky with an offer of a six figure job at Revlon via Vernon Jordan who was on the board of directors, and Ronald Perlman was a Clintonista) to lie under oath and then there were the threats and intimidations (dead cats, slashed tires, etc).
We know from several of the scandals (EPA, I don't recall if we've seen it in the IRS scandal yet) that the Obama administration is using "private email accounts" of the type you get from yahoo, google, etc to engage in criminal conspiracy and to violate open records acts and freedom of information requests.
Here's the rub. The IRS has no way of knowing what the House already has - if they say they're providing everything, but omit one that House already got by other means, the feces will really hit the fan.
It’s a start. Bottom line is that people have committed crimes and need to face justice.
A lot of people in the IRS and Justice Department aren't so clean as you think. Often they leave for private practice giving tax advice and legal counsel to those engaged in shady business practices including the mob. And in some cases (notably in dealing with the mob) they pull strings in the Justice Department to get overzealous investigators pulled off of cases.
