Washington (CNN) - Expanding his IRS investigation by more than two decades, House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa, R-California, has sent a subpoena to the Federal Elections Commission for all communications involving former IRS administrator Lois Lerner from January 1, 1986 to the present day.
This new search is the broadest-yet for records in a year-long investigation by Issa and congressional Republicans, who are trying to assess why the agency targeted tea party and other political groups for extra scrutiny.

Let me know when someone issues an arrest warrant.
This smells funny to me. What do y’all think?
Casting a wide net and see what is dredged up...like it.
Has Issa ever actually accomplished a damn thing with his endless hearings? Besides making himself look like an opportunistic jerk, that is.
Lois Lerner ? Never worked here
That’s plowing deep. Something will sprout.
wasn’t she Clinton’s bulldog too?
So which hard drive will crash next.
Those hard drives at the FEC should be crashing any moment now...
This b!tch thought she was doing good while at both the FEC and IRS. To her, we are not political opponents, we are enemies. We oppose social justice. We are racist . . .
ANYTHING done to stop us is morally acceptable to these people.
Lerner represents one of thousands of untouchable Leftist radicals burrowed into the bureaucracy, who mission is to advance the rat party/government by any means necessary.
Pressure relief valve. Nothing but soma for the right wing masses.
Who the hell is Issa gonna’ get to read these things?
I’ll bet it was STRONGLY WORDED too!
I think targeting a Senator was the final blow. Senators will now be more interested.
I predict on Friday there will be an IT disaster unlike anything anyone has ever witnessed. It’ll be like an EMP blast.. a crisis so dire that every harddrive and component of electronic storage including tapes in hardened storage, removable disks, portable drives and phones will all fail at the same time eliminating all requested information. Along with magnets, small “construction related” fires, accidential shredders and just plain old government incompetence we will see a document purge bigger and more complete than Berlin before the Allies reached the city.
I think you’re right and it opens him to accusations of ‘witch hunting’. Why do this? Why not subpoena the IT people at the IRS and stay on target?
This revelation is pretty significant.
Let’s audit a Republican Senator before they even do anything. He hadn’t even attended the event, yet.
>> Has Issa ever actually accomplished a damn thing with his endless hearings?
Darrell da Diffuser...
The IRS Response:
"Tragically, all communications from January 1, 1986 to the present day have been erroneously destroyed. We checked out a single hard drive on one computer where the records were kept, to an Air Hockey Game tournament, where it was mistakenly used as a puck. The information is, sadly, irretrievable. Oh, and the damaged platters were eaten by our dog."
"PS: F*** you. Expect an audit, bitch."
Looking for leverage.
He is publicizing IRS abuse, and doing a very good job of it, with no co-operation from the Democrats.
And he looks good on TV.
The whole point of an Issa ‘incest’igation is to run out the clock and provide protection for Democrats.
We have won global wars in less time it has taken this fraud to get even this far. And to what end? Red meat for people that still believe the GOP exists as a separate/opposition party.
And at the end of Barrys rule, the GOP will then call for ‘healing’ and coming together because it is a new day.
And no one goes to jail.
None needed. they have inherent contempt arrest power.
Issa is doing a good job at self-promotion.
But not the will.
Time to round up the posse boys. The sheriff is near.
But harsh language won't stop these lawless Democrat maniacs.
Handcuffs and drawn guns might.
Do you hear me now, Mr. Boehner? If you do not, perhaps you might listen to John Locke: "Where laws end, tyranny begins."
They may still do that. Why worry about their accusations anyway?
Will doesn’t apply when the actual intent is to not find/ fix a given problem but to protect it.. They want this as a diversion and a get out the vote tool/pressure relief to give the illusion of action while protecting anyone from Greybar Estates.
The only will there is is the will to defraud their voters with Kabuki theater.
No argument here.
Bet all those hard drives crashed too.
What would you have Issa do differently? Congress only has power to investigate and refer to the AG for prosecution.
It’s the AG who is sitting on his thumbs.
No this explains where this is heading. She was at the FEC.
And until they use it, THEY are the problem in DC.
None of these things would be happening if Issa hadn’t kept after it.
I understand, but it is amazing how many people do argue it. Openly and forcefully when every bit of evidence shows that the stuff we are discussing is reality.
But if they admit it they have to also admit the GOP is not what they claim to be...and their lifetime of allegiance to it falls apart. The adult version of no Santa Claus
So they blame the people that see this stuff for what it is because Santa is real dammit.
Issa must be taking his cue from Gowdy who did an excellent job of examining O’Connor. The IRS used search terms to narrow down the number of emails captured. Gowdy said that was for the benefit of IRS to reduce the volume of emails to examine. Gowdy asked why not just use two simple search terms: From Lois Lerner and To Lois Lerner. That way, you capture everything.
They can arrest Lois Lerner and Eric Holder for contempt of Congress.
Instead, they’re giving all of them the chance to spout off crap like Bill Ayers:
“Guilty as hell. Free as a bird. What a country!”
Until they start making arrests, the “investigations” are a sick joke. It’s no wonder the guilty creeps are smug on the stand. I wonder how they keep from laughing, to be truthful.
Pressure on her to turn on Zero.
Maybe they should subpoena records from the NSA, if they want to squeeze her into talking.
