IRS Smoking Gun: Washington Office Behind Tea Party Targeting
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | May 15, 2014 | Rachel Alexander

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: "New IRS Emails Describe Washington Direction of Tea Party Targeting Efforts." This is the Washington Examiner, but it's everywhere now, because Judicial Watch obtained some documents that illustrate active direction from the Washington office of the IRS in targeting Tea Party and other conservative nonprofit applicants during the 2010 and 2012 campaigns. The e-mails obtained by the Freedom of Information Act, a request for that -- maybe these House committees ought to go that route rather than demanding the Regime submit documents, just go the Freedom of Information Act route.

So here's what we know now. The two rogue agents in the Cincinnati office who were acting on their own was a lie; just like a video nobody saw was responsible for the Benghazi attack was a lie; just like "you can keep your doctor and your health insurance policy if you like them" was a lie; just like Dingy Harry saying that Mitt Romney was a tax cheat was a lie.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: The IRS targeting the Tea Party, the IRS, the Washington office, there was nothing about this rogue agents in Cincinnati thing that was true.

Lois Lerner is hip deep in this stuff. This stuff was going on from the Washington office. "In a July 2012 email, Holly Paz, who was then director of the IRS Rulings and Agreements division, asked IRS lawyer Steven Grodnitzky 'to let Cindy and Sharon know how we have been handling Tea Party applications in the last few months.' Cindy Thomas is the former director of the IRS Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati, and Sharon Camarillo was a senior manager in its Los Angeles office. The email conflicts with claims by Obama administration officials that the targeting effort was done exclusively by the government workers in the Cincinnati IRS office." And they've stuck to that throughout all of this, and this just puts the lie to it. So there's that big news.

END TRANSCRIPT

Sorry, getting it from Cincinnati to Washington isn’t enough any more - they’ve circled the wagons around the White House - no emails from or to someone there, no smoking gun......

WH LIE-A-THON---they lay awake nights thinking up lies

<><> two rogue IRS agents in the Cincinnati office targeting conservatives "acting on their" own was a lie;

<><> a video nobody saw triggered the Benghazi attack was a lie;

<><> "you can keep your plan" was a lie;

<><> Harry Reid saying Romney was a tax cheat was a lie.

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

Edward Klein’s book "The Amateur," is full of details that Obama lied to Americans on just about every issue imaginable:

<><> about what his real agenda is,

<><> about the competency of Obama’s administration,

<><> about his separating himself from his most ardent supporters.

His 2008 campaign was a lie from the getgo: Anita (I Luv Mao) Dunn---2008 Obama's conniving PR person later said the O'Team calculatedly let the media know only what THEY wanted them to know about Obama. They answered no questions. Voters were duped from the getgo.

What is this thing we got in the WH?

The targeting was going on from the Washington office. We have proof positive. The FOI emails conflict with claims by Obama administration officials that the targeting effort was done exclusively by the Cincinnati IRS office.

THE PAPER TRAIL AND THE LIKELY SUSPECTS Besides the infamous Lois Lerner...... "In a July 2012 email, Holly Paz, then-director of IRS Rulings and Agreements division, asked IRS lawyer Steven Grodnitzky 'to let Cindy Thomas, the former director of the IRS Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati, and Sharon Camarillo a senior manager in its Los Angeles office know how we have been handling Tea Party applications in the last few months.'"

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

TALKING POINTS---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.

MARK WELL “The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involves:

•Hundreds of conservative groups targeted
•At least 5 pro-Israel groups
•Constitutional-centered groups
•Groups that dared criticize the 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 targeted and harassed
•Conservative activists and businesses
•At least one conservative Hispanic group

SUMMATION The IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was expose. 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.”

The exhaustive compilation of IRS targets (above) presents an interesting roadmap to uncover the IRS' possible Falsifying of Official 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.
