Are you saying that snakes are the totem animal of this Administration or the Liberals or the Democrats or do you think there is a difference?

“so they DID break the law.”

Depends on what the word “did” means.

It was a tough choice between other vermin, but I'll go with snakes.

“The weasel bureaucrat did everything but admit they broke the law.”

Now, multiply this a$$hole by tens of thousands and you get a clear picture of our government today. This guy needs to be watching the street hanging from a lamp post.

It is clear the IRS was being used to target political opponents, the bureaucrats on staff were comfortable with doing that, and now see no problem with covering it up with outrageous lies about emails being lost.

So, what’s the penalty? My guess is nothing other than the agency gets a minor hand slap at this morning’s hearings. The failure to inform occurred under the current leadership, the destruction and poor systems under prior IRS leadership. Let’s start with the penalty for failure to inform the Archivists. Of course even if it were criminal DOJ would do nothing so does the National Archives have its own ability to impose a penalty? If they don’t penalize the current leadership at the IRS the message is there is no harm no foul if you lose documents and don’t report.

There will be no penalties until the Republicans can take the Senate. The Dems can block, stall, and destroy evidence with impunity without fear of oversight. Once there is a real threat of impeachment then we will see if they have the guts to do anything.

The damage that would be done by releasing the emails must be assumed to be worse than the consequences of breaking the law by destroying them.

The House could hold them in civil contempt and hold them in one of the pocket offices in the House Office building since t h st no longer have a jail sell. Remove all the furniture except a bed with a prison mattress, table, chair shelf, small TV and what ever minimum requirements there are for a jail cell. In an outer office they could put some exercise equipment. They theoretically could hold them until January and as soon as the next House session hold them for another 2 years. Since this would be an action by the House they could argue that their action is not subject to judicial review under separation of powers and refuse to release him until all appeals are completed. If Holder sends the FUN to spring him, block them with their own bodies.

IIRC, in the past they weren’t always held physically within the Capital building. Some where held in jails in the District. Of course back then Congress ran the district. With home rule (i.e. far out leftists) in charge of DC now that wouldn’t be suitable place to hold them. Of the top of my head I see reason, other than convenience, for picking one holding cell over another. So I suggest sending off to Sheriff Joe for safekeeping. Even with the distance I bet he’d be low bid. And I’m confident he’d be willing to House Holder in his jail. They could teleconference any legal hearings from DC.

Getting them there would be the problem. The feds would intercept any prisoner transfer and take the individual and then the fight would be to recapture the person held in contempt. Again no penalty for not talking since it would take forever to get them back.

The reason congressmen would need to be used to prevent removal from the cell in the House building is it is very tough to arrest one of them due to constitutional restrictions.

In a trial your entitled to a lawyer by the constitution, but if you are being held by congress under its authority are you allowed to consult with an attorney and do the courts have any authority? The Senate won’t because it’s a desperate body and has no authority over the other except what is granted in the constitution or by the House itself. For example neither house of Congress can be in recess without the permission of the other and a member of one body can’t go on the floor of t h e other house without permission (exception is probably a former members under other rules)’

See at the linked YouTube video of the Monday night hearing (beginning at 1:50:30) where Rep. Chaffetz questions IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

Koskinen admits ALL of Lois Lerner's e-mails were available on a back-up tape but were not extracted and saved because it was too much trouble.

The IRS had the emails and knew the Committee wanted them at the time. They even stated they would go to "extraordinary" lengths to get them.
