Video: IRS Head Waited 2 Months to Tell Congress, FBI About Lost Emails
weekly standard ^ | 6/23/14 | MICHAEL WARREN

Posted on 06/23/2014 10:24:30 PM PDT by Nachum

Republican congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio excoriated the Internal Revenue Service commissioner Monday night in a House hearing looking into the agency's malfeasance regarding conservative non-profit groups. Jordan focused his questioning to when IRS comissioner John Koskinen knew about the loss of critical emails from former official Lois Lerner. Koskinen testified that he discovered a computer hard drive crash lost the Lerner emails in April but did not report this publicly until presenting Congress with a report earlier this month.

The media and the public are SUPPOSED to, but that’s so 2000.

Lois Lerner took an ax
Gave her hard drive forty whacks,
And when she saw what she had done,
She gave six others forty one.

And yet some backups did exist,
so carefully she made a list.
So when she found them, she was not slow,
To give those too the old heave ho.

The party members seem quite content with the implications of the scandal.

I doubt we’d share the Democrats’ defensive dismissal if the roles were reversed.

Exactly. How long ago were Eric Holder and Lois Lerner held in contempt of congress? What have been the ramifications? Zero.

Koskinen has the thick skin of a life long bureaucrat. He is confident that as with Holder, Lerner, congress will do nothing of substance before the end of Obama’s term.

If this happens, if they and no one from the White House are held accountable, it means the end of effective political opposition. From that day forward, we'll know that every major pubbie candidate has the seal of approval of the Left/rats.

End of republic.

Today on Posts you had this to say. The ENTIRE Democrat Party is a CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE!!! You also called Republicans spineless. I guess we just don’t have a chance. It’s all over.

This nation was born in conflict and has lasted 238 years in conflict because the founders designed it that way.

Are there any emails from immediately after the crash communicating (A) an attempt to secure the backups that were being paid for (B) that day to day operations were going to be impacted from recent email loss (C) an internal ticket order to build up Lois a new personal computer since her old one crashed?

I like the way it’s taken the IRS years to get what Lerner E-mails they were able to get and yet when they find some are missing in April they allegedly contacted Treasury and the White House and have already been told “No we got no Lerner E-mails.” Also supposedly the Justice and IG are investigating this matter. Have they requested the Lerner E-mails? It appears only the House committees have made this request. Odd.

Koskinen, what a smug, arrogant S.O.B.!!

They all know Eric Holder & Justice Dept will never touch any of them.

That's why they are so openly flippant & condescending to the Republican House members.

What'd he say to Gowdy? "...I gave up law for Lent."

Issa , Mike Rogers and Boehner all talk the talk, but refuse to walk the walk, they are not good for America.

They all whine and moan about being stonewalled by the Commie Obama Administration, but NOTHING effective happens, except for the formation of the Benghazi Committee under Trey Gowdy.

The House RINOs had their chance for OVER FOUR YEARS and have done NOTHING, proving that they are not good for America, PERIOD!

It is time to mow down the not good in the House, ASAP!

Care to join me?

John Koskinen knew ...

I'm starting to think John Koskinen's a bad person. Sweet with those he's trying to curry favor with - a criminal-type to those he thinks have less power... There's something about him that says, 'bad'...
