Report: IRS Sent Database Containing Confidential Taxpayer Information to FBI
National Review Online ^ | June 9, 2014 | Eliana Johnson

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 Lerner’s 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 Department’s 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.

It would appear that the release of a data dump of this dimension (1.1 million pages! Count 'em, 1.1 million!) is an egregious violation of law.

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.

They push one out the door daily now...

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..?

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.

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”.

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.

What happened to the infamous Gorelick Wall?

Or was that only a convience for keeping the FBI from knowing what Clinton-Gore were doing regarding illegal campaign contributions?

Lois must be convicted and sentenced to die for her crimes against the Republic

But if she rats out the King Rat, she can get life in prison instead.

"The Independent Counsel Reauthorization Act of 1994 has expired,..."

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.

LESS LAWS = MORE FREEDOM

5 million pages won't be enough. They got the goods on him. Roberts too.

No sooner did I hit the "post" button than I realized that I had misspoken, I did not mean to say "special prosecutor," or even, "special counsel," I meant to say a "special committee."

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 Party’s “secret donor” theme on the eve of the 2010 election, and breaking the law to do so.”
