Skip to comments.Report: IRS Sent Database Containing Confidential Taxpayer Information to FBI
Posted on 06/09/2014 11:27:54 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
The Internal Revenue Service may have been caught violating federal tax law: In October 2010, the agency sent a database on 501(c)(4) social-welfare groups containing confidential taxpayer information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to documents obtained by a House panel.
The information was transmitted in advance of former IRS official Lois Lerners meeting the same month with Justice Department officials about the possibility of using campaign-finance laws to prosecute certain non-profit groups. E-mails between Lerner and Richard Pilger, the director of the Justice Departments election crimes branch, obtained through a subpoena to Attorney General Eric Holder, show Lerner asking about the format in which the FBI preferred the data to be sent.

Issa was tweeting about this earlier today.
John Boehner, if 1 million pages is not enough to get you to call for a special prosecutor, would 2 million be enough?
SK the FBI received this info, in violation of the law, and did nothing? Who’s going to hold them accountable?
That story about the Federal agencies coming down on true the vote is starting to pan out. Looks like Katherine may have found her smoking gun. Now we know how the various agencies got her info. The IRS sent it in violation of the law.
Will this be the next scandal to get Bergdahl/Tallybon off the front pages?
They push one out the door daily now...
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!
For those of you who are my fellow Freepers who may not be aware of this, but the reason that Eric Holder is the AG is that his job is to have Obama’s back and make sure that nothing ever has a chance to touch the One. Justice for all?
Ha, ha, hahahahahahahahahahahah, oh my, I think my sides are going to split...
WHY do we even HAVE legislative and judicial branches...?
There should be a very basic alignment of reality and appearances.
Right now that balance is drastically out of whack.
If they don’t lay any claim to the powers vested in them, why do they exist..?
Lois must be convicted and sentenced to die for her crimes against the Republic
There is corruption at the very top. There is no governing body above the KGB/IRS and the DOJ. Since they are both corrupt, we have to wait until the public gets its head out of its anal sphincter and votes the democrats out of office.
Revolts aren't won by votes.
Hanging a few of them in public however...
This is the link from the IRS to the Justice Department. Now there needs to be a link from the Justice Department to Eric Holder.
(yes, that was a joke)
The FBI is just as culpable for essentially receiving stolen property. All this reminds me how efficient and squeaky clean the Nazis thought they were because they vigorously prosecuted anyone skimming from the constant stream of loot stolen from murdered jews. It was all on the “up and up”.
Wow, another impeachable offense!
Rest assured, Prince John is sure to discuss this matter with King Barry the next time they play golf together.
CUT IT OUT, for PETE’s sake. IMPEACH, IMPEACH! You can’t do that , under the present (and possibly future)circumstances. HE is black, holds the Senate and too many RINOs will uphold him. Save the bullshit for someone else.
To party on our dime.
This story just keeps leaking out and no ones being punished. :)
The Marxist/Fascist coup on America in 2008 is now complete, accountability be damned. The tyrannical regime answers to no one.
Boehner may hate Conservatives too much to bother.
Remove Boehner as majority leader and replace him with someone competent.
The Independent Counsel Reauthorization Act of 1994 has expired, leaving only the "independent counsel" authorized by 28 CFR 600.1. The latter requires the US Attorney General to appoint an "independent counsel".
Do you see the problem? Congress no longer has the authority to appoint a special prosecutor, and the US Attorney General is beholden to the President.
Or was that only a convience for keeping the FBI from knowing what Clinton-Gore were doing regarding illegal campaign contributions?
The GOPe will bluster and do ...nothing.
That is why in my long list of reforms that ALL legislation, except military budgets and few others should sunset after a certain amount of years. Certain laws should sunset after at least 10 years. Constitutional laws should remain in perpetuity, as should the above which was passed as a protection against political corruption.
Make Congress and the President revisit laws they think benefits their political parties and see how long that takes. It will keep them busy so as not to create more freedom killing laws.
This is going to make Watergate look like small potatoes...
This is going to make Watergate look like small potatoes... I'll even venture a guess that Holder will wind up in prison...
I think I have Unprosecuted Federal Crimes Fatigue.
yea - we see this and we wonder WTF is keeping our elected watch “puppies” from doing anything? geez I hope she gets a bunch of good from her lawsuit
5 million pages won't be enough. They got the goods on him. Roberts too.
You are quite right to correct the gaffe and quite right that Attorney General Holder will violate his oath to protect Obama and his crimes.
“the IRS, at its highest levels, was trying to advance the Democratic Partys secret donor theme on the eve of the 2010 election, and breaking the law to do so.”
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I don't add you to the list...
I hope to get caught up today...
and so does the FBI ;)
