Top House Republican: We Already Caught White House Lying About IRS Targeting Scandal (Video)
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 3/14/14 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 03/10/2014 6:15:01 PM PDT by Nachum

This was a terrific interview on The O’Reilly Factor tonight. Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and Deputy Whip and Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, told Bill O’Reilly the committee has already caught the White House lying about the IRS conservative targeting scandal.

Rep. Kevin Brady: We’ve interviewed IRS persons of interest more than 50 times. Which is where we quickly discredited much of the White House’s earlier claims. So we’re going to continue to work through the documents… When the time is right, when we think we have a much clearer picture and pinpoint of the wrongdoing then we’ll deal with Miss Lerner.

Brady then went on to tell Bill O’Reilly that the IRS stonewalled the committee during the investigation. Then he dropped this bomb.

Then he dropped this bomb.

Rep. Kevin Brady: We quickly discredited from the IRS employees themselves that this was just a rogue activity out of Cincinnati, or Dallas and went to Washington. We quickly discredited the thought that progressive organizations were targeted as well.

From the article

“The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

•Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
•At least 5 pro-Israel groups
•Constitutional groups
•Groups that criticized Obama administration
•At least two pro-life groups
•An 83 year-old Nazi concentration camp survivor
•A 180 year-old Baptist paper
•A Texas voting-rights group
•A Hollywood conservative group was targeted and harassed
•Conservative activists and businesses
•At least one conservative Hispanic group
•IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed
•And… 100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were Conservative
There is NO EVIDENCE that a single liberal group went through the same scrutiny as conservative groups.”

What the hell is wrong with this country to put up with this?

About twice a month there have been threads in which some GOP member of congress proclaims Obama is doing something unconstitutional.

What happens? That’s right.

Clinton looked into the camera and lied directly to millions of people. Yes, he was impeached, but to paraphrase his wife, ‘what difference did it make?’. We’ve become a society that tolerates just about anything from anyone that the media tells us is okay.

Seriously, I believe that a huge swath of America decides what’s valid and what isn’t based on what the popular culture - as defined by the news media and the entertainment industry - tell us. This isn’t because this swath of America isn’t able to tell the difference. It’s because not believing what they say is a little like waking up and realizing you’ve been living in the Matrix. It’s very unsettling, to say the least.

Perhaps someone should remind Rep. Brady that the complete and permanent solution to all of this is currently before him in the House Ways and Means Committee in the form of HR25, the Fairtax bill!

I am losing hope that there are a few good men who will do anything serious about a lawless administration. Much sound and fury signifying nothing.

Not to mention, these b@st@rds have been spying on us for a decade. Credit card records, phone, email, facebook.

Just pisses me off to no end. We're a target? Law abiding Americans?

One of the Articles of Impeachment drawn up against Richard Nixon was merely "threatening" to use the Internal Revenue Service to selectively audit political opponents.

OBAMA HAS WEAPONIZED THE IRS AGAINST POLITICAL OPPONENTS ordering multiple overt campaigns of intimidation, threats, and persecution of tea party/conservative organizations, and those daring to criticize Obama's agenda.

Conservatives are reduced to begging Holder's DOJ to investigate and prosecute.....and begging the IRS to play nice by releasing information implicating its own staff in wrongdoing and perhaps criminal violations.

Seven vote-crazed Dumbocrat Senators paranoid about losing their seats demanded the IRS investigate conservative groups.

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

Conservatives have got to start asking---How Did Obama and His Democrat Minions Get So Much Power Over the IRS?

DID THE IRS JIHAD AGAINST CONSERVATIVES BEGIN WHEN OBAMA TOOKOVER THE US TREASURY? WHAT MISCHIEF WERE OBAMA/RAHM EMANUEL UP TO AT THE US TREASURY (IRS is an agency of the US Treasury)?

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

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

Amazing...

Also Geithner's early problems with his own taxes - seems he felt he was in a 'protected' mode - and didn't have to worry about the IRS. Does that seem odd to you?

Your exhaustive compilation of IRS targets presents an interesting roadmap to uncover the IRS' CYA'ing by Falsifying Government Documents.....punishable by 10 year incarceration.

Falsifying Government Documents. involves altering, changing, or modifying a document for the purpose of deception.......can also involve forgery and/or passing copies of false documents. Falsifying documents is usually done in connection with broader criminal aims, such as extortion, government fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, financing terrorism........

Types of documents commonly falsified may include:
◾Tax returns and income statements
◾Personal checks
◾Bank account records
◾Business record keeping books
◾Immigration documents (such as visas, passports, etc.)
◾Identification cards and birth certificates

Many different types of acts can be considered as falsifying a document, including:
◾Altering or misrepresenting factual information such as prices or monetary amounts
◾Stating false information when requested to provide truthful statements
◾Forging a signature
◾Using official letterheads without authorization
◾Concealing assets or property WRT obtaining federal/state grants))
◾Knowingly using or distributing a fake document

A person can only be held criminally liable if they are deliberately acting with the intention of deceiving or defrauding another party.

Falsifying documents is a very serious offense and is generally classified as a felony. This means that a person charged with falsifying documents may be subject to the following legal penalties:
◾Having to pay a monetary fine
◾Incarceration in a prison facility

Depending on the gravity of the offense, as well as individual state laws, falsifying documents can result in a prison sentence of 5-10 years. Also, if government documents or authorities were involved, the legal penalties may be more severe. ..... legal penalties may increase with repeat offenses.

The penalty for falsifying government documents is outlined in the Crimes Act of 1958.
