IRS refuses to turn over documents on targeting to Senate
Washington Examiner ^ | 6/5/13 | Susan Ferrechio

Posted on 06/05/2013 9:09:42 AM PDT by Nachum

The Internal Revenue Service has failed to turn over documents requested by the powerful Senate tax-writing panel, which is investigating the tax agency´s practice of targeting conservative organizations. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., and Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the panel´s top Republican, gave the IRS a May 31 deadline to answer dozens of questions related to the special scrutiny the agency was giving to right-leaning groups seeking tax-exempt status. But the troubled IRS let the deadline go by.

Lefties think this is all going to blow over.

There is blood in the water, and it's real blood, unlike Watergate.

So, what are the consequences of missing the “Deadline”?

Congress needs to issue a strongly worded request for those documents:

“Pretty Please with Sugar on it, won’t you send - if you have time - those documents? If you want to that is.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Seriously - I doubt anyone in Congress has enough cajones to run up against the IRS.

Obviously there are some senators who continue to retain illusions about their power relative to the IRS.

The IRS did not keep adequate records or receipts for the conferences, and nearly $200,000 in spending is unaccounted for.

That is so funny that it isin’t!

It's the new transparency.

As long as they're allowed to get away with it.

Also remember there were 7-8 democratic senators like Franken and other losers who actually and formally wrote the IRS requesting they target conservatives.

Now that the IRS has complied and is under fire - does anyone really think the Senate will give a damn?

The problem is, it's not being reported with any outrage, for the amount of blood it's hardly being reported at all.

I'll be surprised if it doesn't blow over within a month, and I hope I'm wrong.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I don’t think they give a damn. What’s the harm done? Obammie fired a temp director who was on his way out. Another director pleads the 5th. They ignore a Senate request for info. They have Obammie, Holder and the whole liberal regime in their hip pockets....

Face it. The IRS is untouchable. Good luck on some GOP congress critters trying to take them down. Ain’t gonna happen.

The deadline that passed was a "request". The next deadline is likely to be via a subpoena. They will face a judge if they fail to respond to that more formal request.

I don’t think the Senate could count on Justice or any other department under Obama’s thumb to help put pressure on the IRS. I do not believe that the Senate has any “independent” resources to use.

Holder is holding his package on this IRS crime just like he did on the Wall Street banks and banksters and their behind the scenes rulers; the IRS is TOO big to fail and TOO big to prosecute. TOO big = SO corrupt it will exact deadly revenge on anyone who tries to hold it accountable.

perhaps congress should press forward into a flat tax system just for PERSONAL taxes.

The IRS the EPA, OSCHA, NHTSA, have all been weaponized.

Here’s a novel approach-hold the entire IRS in contempt of congress and lock up every damn employee until they get the info they want from them. Let’s see how they like their rights being taken from them for once.

No problem. Sometimes all you can do is laugh and poke fun at this stuff. No use having a coronary over it. I learned that in the Clinton days. We know it’s wrong. We know it’s worthy of criminal charges, but what can we do about it? In a word, “NOTHING”.

No damn consequences, ever. Congress has little in the way of enforcement powers unless the have a Justice Department willing to bring and prosecute contempt of Congress or perjury charges. With Holder as AG, this just isn’t going to happen, so it’s all just “a tale told by an idiot; all sound and fury, signifying nothing.” The Obama scandals will remain nothing more than bad theater and a distraction for the American people while the Obama government tyranny continues unchecked.

My homage to “We don’t need no stinkin’ badges”, is a lampoon with a lot of impact for those who can grasp the significance.

For those who can’t, sorry.

crooks uttered that line
they were disgusting crooks
they had no morals
they were vile
they were contemptible

I could simply say they were these things, but there’s a better way to do it, and I believe I revealed that in my post.

The IRs is officially out of ontrol and they are now a rogue agency of the government.

They must be disbanded, as no amount of re-arranging the deck chairs on this Titanic is going to change it.
