True the Vote Witness Who Testified on IRS Scandal Pens Blazing Letter to Grandstanding Democrat
IJ Review ^ | 4-13-14 | Kyle Becker

Posted on 04/13/2014 6:37:15 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

Catherine Engelbrecht became the face of the IRS scandal with her riveting testimony before Congress on how her group True the Vote was targeted by the IRS for selective persecution and harassment.

Recently, it was discovered that Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings had a hand in the IRS targeting True the Vote.

You might remember Cummings as the grandstanding Democrat who railed against Darrell Issa’s investigation of the scandal after a Congressional hearing with IRS official Lois Lerner had closed (and then implied that Issa was racist):

Further making the situation ironic and unsightly for justice-avoiding Democrats is that emails show Lois Lerner improperly fed Elijah Cummings’ staff tax information on True the Vote via email correspondence.

Engelbrecht responded in a blistering letter entitled, “No More Lies, Mr. Cummings; Tell America the Truth“:

"Washington is reeling as Rep. Elijah Cummings’ (D-MD) true role in the IRS abuse scandal has come to light. Emails released by the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee, of which Cummings is the ranking member, show Cummings and his staff communicating with Lois Lerner while the IRS targeted True the Vote for abuse.

“Today’s committee action reveals what we knew all along. Partisan politics and the weaponization of government against opponents of this administration is real and continues,” said True the Vote president Catherine Engelbrecht. “Elijah Cummings has blocked the IRS abuse investigation all along. We now see clearly that two branches of government have colluded to target and silence private citizens.

“America has come to a tipping point,” Engelbrecht said. “No more lies. No more cover-ups. No more collusion. Enough is enough. Finally, we have a chance for the rule of law to be re-established, thanks to the bold efforts of Chairman Issa and Rep. Jordan.”

Engelbrecht added, “We filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Cummings in February. Today we’re amending that filing to include this latest revelation. As I have said in my testimony before Congress; I will not retreat, I will not surrender, I will not be intimidated. I will not ask Rep. Cummings, Lois Lerner, Barack Obama, or anyone else, for permission to exercise my constitutional rights.”

Anyone with common sense could see the moment that Elijah Cummings put on a big acting performance at Lois Lerner’s testimony (where she plead the Fifth – again) that the Democrat was attempting to hide something from the public, while shifting attention onto Republicans by vilifying them. Now we know why.

I look forward to Mr. Cumming whining and complaining and playing the race card, while proclaiming his innocence.

I prefer he carry on this thread of lies through to the November elections, to ensure this evidence remains in the public view, and appropriately impacts the election results.

ABOLISH THE IRS!

Gubbamint using this sort of power against citizens is, was and will always be illegal.

This was an effort on the part of Obozo and his cronies to alter the outcome of an American election.

Who's in prison? What lawmaker is introducing legislation to dump the tax code? Other than Ted Cruz, is there any congressman calling for the abolition of the IRS?

Where in hell is the GOP?

Engelbrecht added, “We filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Cummings in February...."

Who was the complaint filed with? Eric Holder and the Justice Department? This will go nowhere. The media shills will continue to bury this story and it will never reach a Watergate frenzy. Cummings and all the liberals know this and will continue on doing what they are doing with no fear. They don't care if they get caught, because they know nothing will happen to them.

Please, no one turn this into another anti GOP-e screed. The problem is much deeper and more serious.

"Where in hell is the GOP?"

Most of the GOP is just the slightly more conservative wing of the Washington party. Boehner, McConnell and their ilk are part of the problem. All must be purged to restored America.

Hate to bust your bubble, but the IRS is never going away...

The GOPe loves the IRS just as much as the dems / libs / progressives / marxist do...

They ALL live off the largesse of the American taxpayer via the IRS and the IRS is the most feared arm of the government they control...

The most egregious tactics of the IRS will be culled back by the GOP controlled Congress in 2016 for show, but their 800 lb gorilla isn't going away...

Englebrecht filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Cummings in February and later amended it to include more damning recent revelations. Englebrecht, a valiant American patriot said: "I will not retreat, I will not surrender, I will not be intimidated. I will not ask Rep. Cummings, Lois Lerner, Barack Obama, or anyone else, for permission to exercise my constitutional rights.”

Newsmax reported: the similarities between questions asked of True the Vote by Cummings staffers and IRS officials at separate junctures strongly suggested inappropriate coordination between Cummings and the IRS.

Engelbrecht demands Cummings and Lerner be held accountable, but said the issue goes far beyond these two. No question---the Cummings/ IRS paper trail of demeaning and subjugating conservatives leads straight to the WH criminals.

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

Giddy w/ success at winning the WH, the malevolent Chicago criminals had big plans---they started making ominous threats from the getgo.

ALL OF THIS NEEDS TO GO VIRAL 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 covert campaigns of intimidation, threats, and persecution of tea party/conservative organizations, and those daring to criticize Obama's agenda.

<><> Seven lock-stepping Democrats scared-***tless of losing their seats ask the IRS to “Investigate” political opponents,

<><> Rep Elijah Cummings led the Democrat pack in smearing True the Vote patriot Catherine Englebrecht....

<><> the FBI, ATF, the IRS, and OSHA were sicced on Catherine Englebrecht, as she valiantly tried to improve the US voting system.

<><> Obama said Tea Parties were a "threat to democracy."

<><> The IRS (a tax-funded L/E agency) takes its marching orders from Democrat;

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

THE LIKELY SUSPECTS----DEMS STOOP TO CONQUEUR
order IRS to act to save their seats by Alexander Bolton, The Hill, 2/13/14

Senate Democrats facing tough elections this year want the IRS to play a more aggressive role in regulating outside groups expected to spend millions of dollars on their races. In the wake of the IRS targeting scandal, the Democrats are publicly prodding the agency instead of lobbying them directly.

Dems are also careful to say the IRS should treat conservative and liberal groups equally, but they’re concerned about an impending tidal wave of attack ads funded by GOP-allied organizations. Much of the funding for those groups is secret, in contrast to the donations lawmakers collect, which must be reported publicly.

One of the most powerful groups is Americans for Prosperity, funded by the billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch. It has already spent close to $30 million on ads attacking Democrats this election cycle. “If they’re claiming the tax relief, the tax benefit to be a nonprofit for social relief or social justice, then that’s what they should be doing,” said Sen. Mark Begich (D), who faces a competitive race in Alaska. “If it’s to give them cover so they can do political activity, that’s abusing the tax code. And either side."

<><><><>Asked if the IRS should play a more active role policing political advocacy by groups that claim to be focused on social welfare, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) responded, “Absolutely. Both on the left and the right,” she said. “As taxpayers, we should not be providing a write-off to groups to do political activity, and that’s exactly what we’re doing.”

Shaheen called the glut of political spending by self-described social welfare groups that qualify under section 501(c) (4) of the tax code “outrageous.” Shaheen is in a good position now but could find herself embroiled in a tight campaign if former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass) challenges her.<><><><>

Sen. Mark Pryor (Ark.), the most vulnerable Democratic incumbent, said the IRS has jurisdiction over 501(c)(4) groups, as well as charities, which fall under section 5/01(c)(3) of the tax code and sometimes engage in quasi-political activity.

“That whole 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4) [issue], those are IRS numbers. It is inherently an internal revenue matter,” he said. “There are two things you don’t want in political money, in the fundraising world and expenditure world. You don’t want secret money, and you don’t want unlimited money, and that’s what we have now.” --SNIP-- -

Our Representatives are going after Lois Lerner...and they'll go after any other criminal law breakers in the IRS where they find them. It's against the law for any political party to use the forces of government to go after their political enemies. Nixon learned that the hard way...

Going after people who felt they could function as 'enforcers' for one political party is NOT the same as saying someone has the right to do away with the IRS. Those are two different issues.

If we want to do away with the IRS - and replace them with a flat tax - it would have to be done according to law. And even after that there has to be an organization that collects and manages the 'flat tax'... Most people in the IRS - like most people in the FBI are good law biding Americans. They can do the job. Getting rid of bad apples like Lois Lerner is happening. Have faith in the system...sometimes it works.

We dont need no steenken' AG Holder to get to the bottom of this.

Ace lawyer Cleta Mitchell--representing True The Vote---should subpoena every official document filed by Lois Lerner and Elijah Cummings. Every document needs to be scrutinized in conjunction w/ possible connections to IRS terrorism-targeting, orders from Obama, favors from Obama, financial emoluments, govt fraud, etc.

Perjury, forgery, and voter fraud need to be considered. For example: Obama cheerleaders Lerner/Cummings might have coached voters to lie on registration forms, and perhaps falsified candidacy papers.

Falsifying Official Public 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........

A person (or persons) can 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.

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

Apparently Issa has info that Cummings and Lerner corresponded.

If the allegations can be proven, IRS/Lerner and Democrat Cummings faces VERY serious charges of getting unauthorized access to confidential Federal Taxpayer Information (FTI), a violation that could land them in jail-----and if they colluded to obtain numbers of FTI's from Conservative 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) groups--that could involve other serious crimes.

If Elijah does, in fact, possess unauthorized tax documents obtained through conspiracy and collusion, and if he distributed the illegally-held documents to other "interested parties" (perhaps in Congress), charges of aiding and abetting could also be involved.

Same place they have been for years. Hiding for fear the communists Democrats would shatter them. Issa is a slow moving jackass and Lerner should be in jail. And Holder should be impeached at least by the House. The IRS should be abolished and a new tax system should take its place. Post card filing is the answer to any new system.

Ya don't say! Bill Clinton used the IRS routinely to squelch the voices of woman attempting to tell their stories.

Jaunita Broadrick, Paula Jones, Jennifer Flowers were all audited to name a few. Oh, just an aside. Eric Holder was the deputy atty general through this time. Tell ya anything?

--SNIP--The House Ways and Means Committee Republicans have not ruled out its “inherent contempt” authority to arrest former IRS chief Lois Lerner if Eric Holder continues to refuse to act on the panel’s vote to seek an investigation of Lerner and her role in the IRS targeting scandal.

The Washington Examiner reports, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) spoke about the committee’s threat to hold Lerner in contempt: "The Ways and Means Committee, led by Chairman [Dave] Camp [R-Mich.], has conducted a serious and thorough investigation of the IRS, uncovering abuses and criminal acts that should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

" As I've said, if Lois Lerner continues to refuse to testify, then the House will hold her in contempt. And we will continue to shine the light on the administration's abusive actions and use every tool at our disposal to expose the truth and ensure the American people get the answers they deserve."

The constitutional “inherent contempt” authority gives the House power to hold Lerner until a new Congress is convened in January 2015, which could then renew the subpoena if she continues to refuse to testify, though Republicans are not emphasizing that option.

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) told The Washington Examiner, "I think we'll deal with that, should that occur, but I think this too is an ongoing investigation, and, frankly, for the attorney general to turn a blind eye to this evidence would discredit him greatly.”

Since they are using the mails in furtherance of a organized criminal activity and obstruction of justice, sounds to me like a RICO violation could be present also. Seems to me the forfeiture laws could be used against them both personally. Sue them civilly.

I suspect Issa knew these emails existed and that is why he never offered Lois Lerner immunity.

It may take much, much longer to overcome the coverup, but since Issa knows Cummings and other democrats and other IRS personnel are involved, he’s going for the big criminal charges play to damage the Democrat party long term.

This is where the IRS scandal is most significant. Every American who pays taxes can understand this type of corruption. Actually associating the weaponization of the IRS with the Democrat Party could be devastating. I’m sure that is what Issa is thinking.

According to Fox News Reporting: "Enemies of the State" Engelbrecht's True the Vote was harassed not only by the IRS but also the FBI (demanding unobtainable info on everyone who had any contact with the organization) and the family oilfield equipment manufacturing business subjected to warrant-less unannounced inspections by the ATF (looking for illegal weapons manufacture), and the Department of Labor OSHA for labor code violations. They were fined $20000 because one fork-lift operator wasn't using a seat belt and some other trivial infraction.

At the recent IRS hearings she said: But know this, my experiences at the hands of this government in these last five years have made me more determined than ever to stand before you and America and say I will not retreat. I will not surrender. I refuse to be intimidated. I will not ask for permission to exercise my Constitutional rights. More info at this link.

Good afternoon.

Cummings and all the liberals know this and will continue on doing what they are doing with no fear. They don't care if they get caught, because they know nothing will happen to them.

You are probably correct, but it's our responsibility to make sure it doesn't go down the memory hole, and these enemies of the Constitution are held accountable for their actions.

Ethics complaints are filed with a Congressional Committed charged with handling such. The Committee’s work is secret, unless it decides to impose some sort of penalty. The Committee is controlled by the majority party, and is 1) partisan, and 2) protective of ALL members (i.e., there really is no such thing as Congressional ethics).

I suspect Issa knew these emails existed and that is why he never offered Lois Lerner immunity.

The so-called mainstream press is missing a great story here...
