Darrell Issa seen plowing ahead with IRS probe amid new evidence (Elijah Cummings deeply saddened)

Darrell Issa seen plowing ahead with IRS probe amid new evidence

By JOHN BRESNAHAN and LAUREN FRENCH | 3/7/14 2:00 PM EST Updated: 3/7/14 3:53 PM EST

Not even a trove of new evidence will stop Darrell Issa from going after Lois Lerner’s testimony.

The House Oversight Committee Chairman is plowing forward with plans to hold the former IRS official in contempt of Congress - possibly as early as next week - despite word from the tax agency that it plans to hand over a broad set of documents spanning Lerner’s entire career at the IRS.

Republicans have long sought the documents and complained the IRS wasn’t sharing the whole picture on Lerner’s 12-year tenure at the agency. The documents will officially go to the Ways and Means Committee but the two panels are sharing evidence.

A senior Republican staffer insists that won’t stop Issa, who caused a stir this week when his rift with Democrats stole the spotlight at a combative hearing. He will still likely seek her testimony, this person said.

“The underlying facts of the case and her refusal to testify have not changed,” said the senior House Republican staffer, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) joined calls to hold Lerner in contempt of Congress after she asserted her Fifth Amendment right during a Wednesday hearing. Issa has suggested that Congress could hold a contempt vote early as next week.

......

The timing of the IRS agreeing to turn over the documents - which House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) has been seeking for months - caused Democrats to question whether gaining access to a trove of new emails and documents could take some off the pressure off congressional Republicans to move quickly on Lerner’s refusal to testify.

“Maybe more level heads on Ways and Means can finally obtain her testimony instead of holding political contempt votes,” an Oversight Democratic staffer said.

But the GOP aide said that Democrats were mistaken if they thought they could drive a wedge between Camp and Issa by giving the documents to Camp just as the contempt debate heats up.

“We have done a pretty good job at keeping everyone on the same page,” said the aide.

Camp first asked for the communications from the IRS last fall. The Michigan Republican sent a letter to the IRS on Feb. 24 threatening a subpoena if they did not quickly make more of the documents available.

I wonder what this is doing to applications to Columbia School of Journalism...?

What person in their right mind would go into journalism in order to NOT report on the news...?

That’s like going to pilot school in order to NOT fly.

Lerner has a history in other positions of partisan actions. Has anyone put a consolidated list together?

The description of Nixon should consult the actual articles of impeachment. Nixon endeavored to do the things Obama got and continues to get away with.

Nixon got minuscule cooperation from our federal government of that day. Makes me wonder what is in our GS, SES, appointed ranks today.

Need to compare Obama crimes to someone people should use LBJ.

DID THE IRS TARGETING BEGIN WHEN OBAMA TOOKOVER THE US TREASURY? WHAT MISCHIEF WERE OBAMA/RAHM EMANUEL UP TO AT THE US TREASURY (IRS subdivision)?

===========================================

THIS MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD shortly after quitting his powerful WH job as Obama's COS, Rahm held a presser declaring he "just remembered" he really, Really wanted to be Mayor of Chicago. Then Rahm announced he had magically "raised" $10 million for his campaign in "just a matter of weeks." (waiting for hysterical laughter to die down). Ya gotta wonder how much Wall Street Rahm wired offshore when Obama put him in charge of the entire US Treasury. Read on.

CONNECTING THE DOTS: Obama's stranglehold on Treasury via COS Rahm Emanuel's dual role

THE TARGETING PAPER TRAIL BEGINS: Soon as they occupied the WH, Obama and the Chicago con artists (a) took control of the US Census; (b) Obama placed his COS Rahm Emanuel in control of the US Dept of the Treasury (the IRS).

THE SMOKING GUN---WSJ REPORT--On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the Obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move.

When he got to Treasury, WH COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings of the Treasury that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials. Reported by WSJ / 05/31/09

More here: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124113406528875137.html

=====================================================

BTW, Mayor Daley's former chief of staff, Valerie Jarrett, hired Obama's wife, Michelle, to work in Chicago City Hall. Jarret is now ensconced in Washington, as Obama's chief policy advisor.

In Chicago gangland vernacular, "chief policy advisor" means "wire-transfer artist".

Remember how dire the consequences were going to be if a Bail Out weren't immediately put in place just after Obama was elected....remember the second bail out got the same notice to move fast...Nancy Pelosi demanding the 2011page Obamacare be passed before we could know what was in it? Would those actions have any place in "connecting the dots" in this administration? Rahm really needs to reveal his money source...I know, in a pig's eye still, an awful lot of money ain't been accounted for.....probably never will as long as the Chicago crooks are in office...Michelle's designer clothes would feed an awful lot of people for years...........

EXCERPT---FOURTEEN TRILLION DOLLARS Behind The Real Size of the Bailout; A guide to the abbreviations, acronyms, and obscure programs that make up the $14 trillion federal bailout of Wall Street
SOURCE motherjones.com
Mon Dec. 21, 2009 12:23 PM PST

The price tag for the Wall Street bailout is popularly put at $700 billion—---the actual size of TARP--the Troubled Assets Relief Program. But TARP is just the best known program in an array of more than 30 overseen by Treasury Department and Federal Reserve that have paid out or put aside untraceable money to bail out financial firms and inject money into the markets.

To get a sense of the size of the real $14 trillion bailout, see MJ chart at web site. A guide to the pieces of the puzzle includes massive untraceable Treasury Department bailout programs.

Money Market Mutual Fund: In September 2008, the Treasury controlled by Obama/Emanuel announced that it would insure the holdings of publicly offered money market mutual funds. According to the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (SIGTARP), these guarantees could have potentially cost the federal government more than $3 trillion [PDF].

Public-Private Investment Fund: This joint Treasury-Federal Reserve program bought toxic assets from banks and brokerages—as much as $5 billion of assets per firm. According to SIGTARP, the government's potential exposure from the PPIF is between $500 million and $1 trillion [PDF].

TARP: As part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the Treasury controlled by Obama/Emanuel made loans to or investments more than 750 banks and financial institutions. $650 billion has been paid out (not including HAMP; see below). As of December 21, 2009, $117.5 billion of that has been repaid.

Government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) stock purchase: The Treasury controlled by Obama/Emanuel bought $200 million in preferred stock from Fannie Mae and another $200 million from Freddie Mac [PDF] to show that they "will remain viable entities critical to the functioning of the housing and mortgage markets."

GSE mortgage-backed securities purchase: Under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, the Treasury controlled by Obama/Emanuel may buy mortgage-backed securities from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. According to SIGTARP, these purchases could cost as much as $314 billion ---SNIP---.

Conservative files abuse of power complaint against Dem. Rep. Elijah Cummings February 7, 2014

According to Engelbrecht, Cummings used his power to harass and intimidate True the Vote and may have encouraged the IRS and other agencies to target her organizations.

"Congressman Cummings on three separate occasions sent letters on letterhead from this committee, stating that he had concerns and felt it necessary to open an investigation on True the Vote," she said.

Because she previously made a statement under oath professing her innocence, so she willingly gave up her 5th amendment right with regards to these proceedings. She can’t have it both ways.

Maybe W was notified as to what she was up to in the later years, the years of zero’s ascendancy, and every single communication she’s made since she starting hunting conservatives are archived.

There’s a reason Gowdy’s so confident and Issa is dragging this out.

TEA didn’t start trying to form non-profits until 08 or 09, but certainly Plouffe, Axelrod anticipated the type of people (us) who would most likely put a stop to them and planned their Lerner strategy in 07.

Yes Issa is the bully he then again the dem’s are helpful and inclusive LOL just ask Waxman and Barney Frank. Why can’t the Republicans release this stuff , they knew what would happen, the stupid party.

Let’s go back, January 11th, 2007, on the floor of the House, Barney Frank is running the House at this moment. He’s the chairman of the proceedings at that moment, and he and a Republican from North Carolina, Patrick McHenry, have this little back and forth.

FRANK: Yes, the gentleman may state the inquiry.

McHENRY: So the chair is saying that I may not offer an amendment —

FRANK: (pounding gavel)

McHENRY: — exempting —

FRANK: The gentleman will sus’thpend! (pounding gavel)

McHENRY: — American Samoa from this legislation?

FRANK: (pounding gavel) The gentleman will sus’thpend!! The gentleman is making a speech and will sus’thpend! The chair is not saying anything.

McHENRY: If the chair will let me finish my question...

FRANK: (pounds gavel) The gentleman will sus’thpend!! The chair has answered the gentleman’s question. The gentlemen will state the point of order.

McHENRY: How many times did our distinguished —

FRANK: No! No! (pounding gavel) The gentleman... (pounding gavel) The gentleman (pounding gavel) ‘’How many times...?’’ could not conceivably be a point of order! The —

McHENRY: If the chair will not answer my question —

FRANK: The gentleman will not inter’wupt. (pounding gavel)

HOUSE: (laughter)

McHENRY: Is exempted —

FRANK: (pounding gavel)

McHENRY: — from this legislation.

FRANK: (pounding gavel) The gentleman will not, eh, uh (coughing) — While, the chair is presiding, will not make speeches in the guise of a parliament inquiry. Comments —

McHENRY: Yeah. These were —

FRANK: (pounding gavel) No, no! The gentlemen will sus’thpend!

McHENRY: Then the —

FRANK: (slamming gavel harder) The gentlemen from Texas — !

McHENRY: Point of order!

FRANK: (screaming) The gentlemen from Texas will sus’thpend! (pounding gavel)

McHENRY: The distinguished speaker was out of order in the past!

FRANK: (banging gavel)

RUSH: No, I would never turn off a Republican’s microphone, I would never let them not say what they wanted to say. I don’t get caught up in that. That’s Barney Frank refusing to let Patrick McHenry say anything. That sounded very mean to me, I mean, Barney Frank really sounded mean to me there. Issa didn’t sound mean when he talked to Elijah Cummings. But Barney Frank sounded power mad mean there. So let’s listen to Issa. Well, Waxman, Henry Waxman, in May of 2008, threatened Issa. Let’s listen to that. This is about seven seconds. It goes by quickly.

ISSA: Members that could yield you time (gavel banging) I would ask that you — (gavel banging)

WAXMAN: I will have you physically removed from this meeting if you don’t stop.

RUSH: That was Henry Waxman to Darrell Issa. That was in 2008, “I will have you physically removed if you don’t stop.” What was it Cummings said? We would never cut off anybody’s microphone. We would never shut anybody up. We would never throw anybody out of here. I would fight to make sure that didn’t happen. Here’s Issa, Fox News last night, The Kelly File asked about this.

ISSA: I broke no rules and he broke the decorum of the House. But I might mention that several years ago Henry Waxman pounded a gavel and said he would have me removed because I was pointing out that he was breaking the rules. We didn’t launch any sort of a House attempt, and I certainly didn’t say that he was somehow anti-Arab-American. The fact is that I did things according to the rules, I followed a script, and then Mr. Cummings decided to have quite a hissy fit. The truth is, if he wants to talk, I give him lots of chances to talk.

RUSH: Yeah, but you see what this has become? And over here’s Lois Lerner, who’s taken the Fifth Amendment because she won’t incriminate herself in whatever it was this administration had the IRS doing to the Tea Party. That’s what’s over there, and this other meaningless pap is what this narrative has become. Did Issa treat little Elijah mean, with disrespect? And was he racist? It’s so beneath. It’s just pathetic. Just absolutely pathetic. The media are destructive agents like I haven’t seen before.
