House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa has subpoenaed the commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service to testify next week before Congress about a trove of lost emails that could contain evidence of a plan to targeted conservative groups. Issa, R-Calif., will hold a June 23 hearing aimed at finding out more about two year´s worth of emails -- from 2009 to 2011 -- that the IRS has reported lost. The emails were from former top IRS official Lois G. Lerner to Justice Department and Treasury officials. ssa had requested the emails because he and other Republicans believe

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
They need to subpoena the IT guy. Da boy has some ‘splainin’ to do.
Not holding breath that there will be a lick of substance to is.
The dog ate my emails.
Oh boy, oh boy, I’m getting excited now. Oh boy!
In the still of the waves .... Am not hopeful of anyone being held accountable. Too soon the night falls.
who is the IT guy? Got a name?
yes, they will give each American sweet words of disguise ... clouded in our death ... Am ready Travis and know many more are too.
I haven’t a clue. I imagine the IRS doesn’t have a clue who it is either but they have to have one. If they do know, they aren’t going to tell us. Another “transparency” thing.
Issa will conduct kabuki theater questioning when he should be consulting with Gowdy to get questions that grab onto the throat and do not let go. Amateur lawyers are destroying these investigations and making them look lame.
I bet they are shaking in their boots now.....
Has an issa “investigation” ever led to any conclusion about anything. Kabuki theater...just kicking the ball down the road.
In the end, doesn’t ANY prosecution have to go through (in)Justice? Does ANYONE think Holder will bother to prosecute his partners in crime?
Subpoena the commissary and immediately arrest him for obstruction when he arrives...
He can bond out when the emails are delivered...
Time to play hardball...
Ok... I’m waking up now....it was a really good dream....
All they ever do about anything is lie and stonewall. How long will it take for average Joe democrat to realize this?
Shattered, Broken ... but never will be the Hand of God shattered or broken. Hi nsa!
Hold your fire ... Hold your fire ... Tomorrow does not die tonight. Let us lay our heads and wait for the knock on our door.
Memo to IRS....Tell your people to stay out of Marcy Park.
Why doesn’t he just call Snowden?
I want to believe....
I don’t with good reason. But I want to.
The government doesn’t use servers, they use parchment, a quill and candlelight. The candle fell over the parchment burned. Voila, no emails.
No, they need to turn it over to a special prosecutor. Testimony before Congress doesn’t accomplish anything.
This is the scandal they should have put the select committee on. This has more legs than Benghazi. The problem is Bohner has no problem with the IRS targeting the Tea Party.
They arent limited to one.
Can he subpoena the NSA archive of the emails?
Two words come to mind here.
“Dog” and “pony.”
Yes but take them one at a time for more effectiveness. The masses get confused.
To quote the woman Jeb Bush honored with a medal recently as a great American or some crap...What difference, at this point, does it make?
Besides. Cloward Piven works both ways.
If only the opposition party would oppose rather than collaborate.
Only if the press was fair. It doesn't work for the right.
“All they ever do about anything is lie and stonewall. How long will it take for average Joe democrat to realize this?”
Forever, because the old media will not cover it. I just asked my well informed 30+ Daughter and husband about it. They are IT professionals. They had not heard of it, were barely aware of the IRS scandal, and simply shrugged it off with “we are skeptical of anything out of Washington”.
As long as the average Joe Democrat relies on the old media and leftist sources for his information, he will not realize it.
The new media is making some headway, but people who are not interested do not bother to read it.
Because the right is too stupid to utilize the internet regardless of how many times Palin shows them.
In the late 90s I edited a niche site, Off-Road,com, with a greater online presence/readership than NASCAR. We were top 1000 for a while.
Niche market. In the late 90s. Monthly readership 7 figures global.
It can be done easily.
You are the right. Do it.
“Not a smidgen of wrongdoing.”
I am laid up in a bed with enough medical issues to write a book on. I am not able to physically do it anymore.
Nor am I the keeper of knowledge. Plenty of people know how. Plenty have sites and refuse to leverage them to potential and YOU NEED THE GOP/TEA ON BOARD.
I know Issa is viewed with contempt in here, but just what the hell is he supposed to do?????? He can’t arrest anyone. He can’t throw anyone in prison. He can’t play judge, jury, and executioner. So what is he supposed to do?? If he didn’t issue a subpoena, people in here would be bitching about that, too.
Pissin’ in the wind..
What does the NSA know, and What does their Meta Data Reveal?
A Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch is all that is needed.
How about lynching the criminal gub mint turd?
That got a laugh!
the IT guy may sleep w/the fishes
The government doesn’t use the internet to send mail. They use carrier pigeons and the pony express. Some anti-environmentalists poisoned the carrier pigeons and the pony express was ambushed by injuns.
Issa can stop being a republipussy worried about his career, be a patriot, and start calling attention to the rampant abuse of power. He needs to get meaner nastier and more win at all costs than those surrounding dear leader. However being the republipussy he is nothing will happen
So is the purpose of hearings just to have hearings? Are they an end in themselves? It’s okay if nothing ever changes? It’s all just part of the entrenched Ruling Class DC game?
