Smoking Gun Trail To White House Possible IRS Bombshell
The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 6-28-2014 | sundance

WOAH – BOMBSHELL !!

The plot thickens. We might just have found a biggie….

In a recent Politico interview (publish date 6/27/14) with the Lois Lerner’s attorney William Taylor III an interesting aspect is buried midway through page #2.

During part of the interview Politico author Rachel Bade inquires about the 1.1 million pages of documents Lerner sent to the Department of Justice that became an issue when discovered by the House Oversight Committee on June 9th 2014. BACKSTORY HERE.

The documents were sent from IRS to DOJ on a series of 4 discs (CD ROMS) and, according to the admission from the DOJ, “contained legally protected taxpayer information that should not have ever been sent to the FBI“.

Why the DOJ waited to inform congress, and why they only did so after Daryl Issa found out about their existence, was a matter congressional consternation but no-one made a big deal about it.

Indeed all prior details and media reports of the interaction have been framed around the substance of legality, and illegality, for the IRS to actually send the confidential taxpayer data. This is indeed a concerning aspect – but we think we’ve uncovered something considerably more alarming about both the timing, and the substance.

Inside the Politico article is an explosively revealing defensively framed answer from attorney Taylor. He is specifically and directly stating it was NOT Lerner who initiated the inquiry:

Good find, but I think at this point, it will take troops landing on the White House lawn to make a difference. More IRS hearings and reports will not move a corrupt DOJ or US Senate to stop protecting the Regime.

According to William Taylor III, Lois Lerner’s attorney, the request for 1.1 million pages of information about the 501(c)(4) applicants [at the heart of the matter] stemmed from the Department of Justice.

Previously all reports had been that Lerner was soliciting the DOJ to investigate the 501(c)(4) parties. This outline by Taylor refutes that assertion and says she was merely responding to an inquiry from the Justice Department for information.

That’s a big deal.

If the DOJ was the initiator of the requests for information, that means the DOJ was the unit seeking to investigate the groups for potential illegal activity.

In essence the people looking to go after the Tea Party groups (et al) was the Department of Justice….. and Lois Lerner was a fellow traveller in the same ideological mindset as to provide the information because she too wanted them handcuffed.

Why this becomes so explosive is when you think about ALL THE OTHER activity of the DOJ at the time this IRS inquiry took place. THINK GIBSON GUITAR etc.

Judicial Watch: IRS Made False and Misleading Statements – “They Are in Real Trouble” (Video)

Just a thought. So far emails have only been sought from the IRS, who “lost” them. Perhaps they should ask for all IRS related emails sent between the Administration and the IRS and Justice and the IRS and between the Administration and Justice where anybody or anything from IRS is mentioned. Surely they can’t use the dog-ate-my-emails argument too...

Wonder if all the folks who had their confidential tax info illegally passed around to the DOJ have been informed about this?

Seems like somebody should inform them..........and their attorneys.
Criminal activity happened against them, you'd think they would have a right to know.

Brian Brown - Defense of Marriage - is a guest on Fox and Friends - Critical point at 3:06 min mark.

He explains that the “cutting room” - the IRS can’t verify who has looked at confidential records.

Think about this in conjunction with Obamacare/ health records.

The doj will claim it did so and will not release the info due to “national security” concerns. Isn’t that the way obama operates? Any crap that may touch his robes is considered a national security concern not fit for the peasants eyes.

"More IRS hearings and reports will not move a corrupt DOJ or US Senate to stop protecting the Regime."

I agree. Somehow we need to move the DOJ out of the executive branch. Not sure how to do it, but with crooks like ZERO & Holder they have made a mockery of the system. The WH runs the DOJ.

Mark Levin said Boehner should have appointed a select committee to handle the IRS scandal and the DOJ would have to answer to courts for any missing documents but Boehner has been ineffective. Now that they have learned Grassley was a target, they may do what is needed. They have not had the incentive to protect the tea party.

I am telling you and any journalist who is reading this.

Check the communication between the WH, DOJ, and the IRS for the week AFTER the first DC protest by the Tea Party. Off the top of my head I can not recall the date, but when I saw Marine One flying over the Capitol, as hundreds of thousands of us marched in protest, I knew at that moment Obama made us his number one enemy.

Grassley was in close touch with Lerner on making the non-profit groups “accountable”. So if Grassley and Lerner were in close touch, that would explain how Lerner received Grassley’s invitation by mistake if they were both invited to the same event.

Grassley was involved in scrutinized non-profits - first 25 seconds of the video below.

“How can the DOJ conduct an investigation into unlawful aspects of the IRS targeting of specific 501(c)(4) groups, when the DOJ is the initiating body for the illegality they are seeking to investigate ?”

There it is in a nutshell. Only a special prosecutor can sort it out now.

This explains why Holder hasn’t made a peep in the news for months. That slimy bastard is up to his eyeballs in this.

The next records request has to be Holders emails to the IRS!

Boehner has been complicite since before the king was anointed. Anyone who thinks otherwise is being played a fool.

The fact that Ol' Yellowstain Boehner has kept his hands in his pockets for six years of Imperial operations by the Executive at the expense of the citizens should be all you need to know.

I think we give these people too much credit. They are probably worse that the Watergate plumbers. Learner has been getting away with this so long that she’s become brazen. Same with Obama. He puts a ridiculous fake BC out there, and laughs at anyone who questions it. He calls IRS a phony scandal. Never in the history of the country have we ever had a more unethical and out and out liar as the guy in office now.

Electronic fingerprint trail in ‘lost’ Lerner emails?

Jun. 23, 2014 - 6:19 - Are Lois Lerner’s emails in the IRS targeting scandal really ‘lost’ without a trace? If someone deliberately got rid of them or the hard drive was destroyed, would evidence be left behind?

The man is untouchable - pigmentation immunity, secondly, no one has the testosterone to attempt to do anything. Boehner is all talk no action and the marxist knows it, that’s why he continues to do whatever the hell he wants.

Any government agency that is called in to investigate another government agency will always find insufficient evidence to find the other guilty of any crime or infraction. Especially under this ‘transparently” deceptive administration.

I know what you mean, but it is better to say that this demonstrates what happens when justice is not blind and chooses a side before any facts are known.

The REAL smoking gun is that if confidential Federal Tax Information (FTI) on the Republican candidates in the 2012 election cycle ended up at Democratic National Committee headquarters and in the hands of certain members of Congress.

Viewing even one FTI document in an unauthorized fashion can get the person subject to a felony charge; this could end up finishing the careers of powerful Democratic Senators like Harry Reid and Charles Schumer.

Boehner is Barry’s golf buddy and dinner companion. Why would he rat on his powerful buddy? Holding Obama or Holder complicit in lawless acts would damage that relationship, thus he is mute and does nothing to stop any of it.

You're absolutely correct.

The Constitution's Framers had three (3) specific parties to address this type of political scandal ...

1) the U.S. Attorney General

2) a Journalism class to educate the public and DEMAND the USAG appoint a ...

3) Special Prosecutor.



Because we NOW lack items 2 and 3, having item # 1 is meanlingless.

Trey Gowdy could call down fire from heaven (like Elijah) and it would be MEANINGLESS.



Obama (the sodomite) and Eric Holder (corrupt lawbreaker) simply don't give a DAMN about either Justice or the United States.



"We the People" are presently "FUBAR-ed" beyond imagination.

I’m with you. I think the IRS helped the DNC (via intermediaries to try to cover the paper trail) by harassing conservative groups and even divulging tax records of political candidates. Remember Harry Reid chirping about Romney’s taxes. Where else did he get that information?
