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.

Subpoena the commissary and immediately arrest him for obstruction when he arrives...

He can bond out when the emails are delivered...

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.

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.

“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.

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.

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?
