Trey Gowdy destroys IRS Commissioner Koskinen (VIDEOS)
Flopping Aces ^ | June 24 2014 | DrJohn

Posted on 06/24/2014 8:58:52 AM PDT by PoloSec

It becomes painfully obvious why Koskinen was appointed commissioner of the IRS. He is a lawyer but hasn’t practiced law in 45 years. He is ignorant of the law and specifically ignorant of tax law.

He’s perfect for the job.

He’s perfect for Obama. He’s a partisan goober.

Utah Rep. needled Koskinen about a short-term data backup that the IRS had in place – but never used – when Lerner’s hard drive crashed in 2011.

‘It’s actually a disaster recovery system,’ the IRS commissioner testified, ‘and it backs up for six months in case the entire system goes down … That was the rule in 2011. Policy.’

Chaffetz wanted to know, ‘Why didn’t they just go to that six-month tape?’

Trey Gowdy is exceptional. Pray nothing bad happens to him. He’ll be crucial in the TRUE recovery of America.

Another candidate on the short list of who should be President. Team him up with Cruz and “remake” America back to what it used to be. Low Taxes, 2nd Amendment observed, no Mexicans and no Mooslims for starters.

The Obama Administration and their Democrat/Communist supporters are all shameless criminals. They deserve indictment, prosecution, conviction and incarceration. They are utter scum.

I wish that every Republican had half the brilliance balls of Trey Gowdy. America would never be in this precarious situation. You cannot BS the guy. Bob

After Gowdy was done, Koskinen now has a choice of orifices from which to defecate.

Ok ... so now what? It is very obvious that laws have been broken.
Is anything going to be done about it?

the way I see it is no one will be going to jail. No one will be found guilty.. And all that will happen will be someone will get fired but they will get their pension.

I don't see inditements coming from all this.

As long as Bonehead is in charge, nothing will happen.

I'm not so sure. At the :45 second mark Koskinen tries to make a joke! He said, "I practiced law once 45 years ago, gave it up for Lent one year & never went back." Who says something like that? Why would he feel it was okay to make light of such a serious matter?

What amazes me is that the administration doesn’t even seem to be trying anymore. The lies get more outrageous by the day, but they figure, “What the hell, the press isn’t going to challenge us and the people can’t do s**t about it. So we can say or do anything we want.” Time for the revolution.

I thought I had seen the ultimate in smarminess, arrogance and delusion from Obama and his entire cabinet and other muslim czars in his regime.

I was wrong.

This clown Koskinen, is the consummate master.
He would fit right in as Putin's right hand man. He even has an appropriate name!

He also reminds me of the arrogant, unrepentant and condemned NAZIS after the Nuremberg trials; beady little eyes, smirk and all. He makes my hair stand on end.

“Is that all that’s needed for one to be in the running for president? Ask a few tough questions?”

So I take it that you are some “conservative purist” who has a long list of “ absolute requirements” for which no candidate exists, is that what you are saying? You want the whole loaf or nothing?

I disagree.

I would just grant the poster some room for justifiable anger, and hyperbole.
He did neglect to add the necessary modifiers.
fake muslim citizens, and Illegal Alien Mexicans.

I have never, once, seen a Freeper attack any legal aliens; not since 1998, anyway.
Or fully honest Muslims citizens (you can't tell, in any way, that they are Muslim :) They act as American as the rest of her native born and naturalized citizens.

It may be helpful to acknowledge that recently, the MMM (Muslim Mass Murderers) in troubled areas of the world claiming that already they have their shadow army inside the United States and other Western countries to continue their permanent war for literal domination of the entire world; in the name of allah.

The problem isn’t people looking good on TV, but then doing nothing, its the fact that Congress does not have prosecutorial powers. That belongs to the DOJ. Holder runs the DOJ, so that is a dead end road.
That leaves Congress only one option they do control and that is the power of impeachment.
But be reasonable about where and to whom it is applied. It would be fruitless to go after Obama, but they can go after Holder, as he is already held in contempt of Congress and has lied before Congress.

Well....we will have to agree to disagree.

I think it was wrong that the poster just said.."Mexicans"....

I'm pretty careful with my words. And that was wrong...IMO.

You don't think...someone on the left...would just copy that post..and it would give FR a bad name?? I do......

Not sure how you don't....

Just in: IRS Commissioner is $100,000 donor to the DEMOCRAT PARTY.

Guess that is the fee for becoming Commissioner. His only plan .. lie, distort, plead innocence .. and while being questioned .. his eyes were darting back and forth at the committee .. as though he was looking for somebody to bail him out of that questioning. I wondered later if it was some kind of signal.

AND THE DEMS ALL HAPPILY COMPLIED.

“Attorney General”

Absolutely! He will need two terms to clean up the mess that Holder has left, but he’d be a star in that job.

It's a great start!

But more importantly he also had more than a few additional questions, and informed, articulate and complete answers!

Makes the stumbling mumbling of the Idi Amin look-alike on the other side, full of opinions, and lame mumblings about "these hearings should be considered concluded!" look like the ignorant savage that he is.

It's easy.
The left always has and always will, quote out of context, edit quotes, and even attribute citations, quoting leftists, as the product of the victim they are attacking!

No, I never stay awake worrying about that.

Agree. I hope Mr. Gowdy reminds the IRS thugs that since they live outside the law, they should not expect any Constitutional protections. Sword cuts both ways.

I agree .. and Trey would be exactly the person to do the weeding out of all the democrats currently in dept who are willing to do whatever .. or any attorney willing to do whatever.

And .. he’d still have enough backbone to tell the president who appointed him; NO, NO, A THOUSAND TIMES NO.

Koskinen constantly displayed a smirk on his face as if saying: “Try as hard as you may but you will never get me. We just committed the perfect crime, and you know it.”

Koskinen seemed to be more annoyed than rattled during the hearings.
