Expect More Fireworks At Tonight's Prime-time Oversight Hearing on IRS Obstruction
Breitbart ^ | 6-23-14 | by DEBRA HEINE

Posted on 06/23/2014 3:38:01 PM PDT by kingattax

Tonight at 7:00 Eastern the House Oversight Committee will have their shot at getting answers from IRS Commissioner John Koskinen on the destruction of two years of key IRS emails at a hearing entitled, “IRS Obstruction: Lois Lerner’s Missing Emails.”

I expect even more fireworks tonight than there was at the House Ways and Means Committee hearing on Friday, given the latest developments on the IRS scandal that came to light over the weekend.

On Friday afternoon, it was discovered that the IRS used email back-up company, Sonasoft, a small Silicon Valley company with connections to Obama.

The Daily Caller reported on Sunday that the IRS canceled their contract with Sonasoft just weeks after Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed.

I was thinking more a wall and firing squad, but if we can at least get jail I am fine with that.

Sorry but I’ll miss the fireworks. I’ve got to wash the dishes and trim my nose hair. Priorities dontcha know.

Lerner finds out that her cracked azz is in a crack, and in the days that follow the hard disks of everyone she communicated with start crashing.
What an amazing set of coinkydinks ....

Wrong, kingattax.

A federal grand jury would operate in secret; should it uncover any prosecutable offenses, those would be completely emasculated by Eric Holder.

On the other hand, the committee proceedings demand coverage by the media. While much of the liberal MSM would downplay negative findings, enough of the information developed would be dispersed by alternative media that serious questions would arise in much of the voting public.

I think so. At the bottom of the C-Span 2 feed, it says that the hearing will start when the Senate finishes the session.

Hope those rascally demos don’t keep on yakking, just to delay it until too late!

So I have AT&T Uverse (the most expensive package) and I cannot find a CSPAN channel. Used to get it so I assume they took it off my package.

Anyone know what channel it would be on?

What good would a federal grand jury do?

Eric Holder isn't going to suddenly arrest himself, his staff, and the IRS........

respectfully the key word here is “indictments”.

if the American people allowed any attorney general to ignore or attempt to nullify a federal grand jury indictment, then we no longer deserve to be a free people with a constitutional republic.

it is dangerous to be satisfied with political theater or entertained by it.

with a lawless and out of control federal government, we need to return to a concept called “enforcing law” and a congressional committee is not the instrument for that.

You know, I think it would be neat to see a clothes rack in the background of the committee room, that had orange jumpsuits ready to be worn out for the appropriate “perp walk”...And these schmups are escorted out of the room after they lie some more...

After all, “Orange is the new Black!”

Koskinen is Obama’s hand picked man to restore trust in the IRS. He came from Freddie Mac.
