Another federal judge tells IRS to explain itself on lost emails
Washington Examiner ^ | July 2, 2014 | Mark Tapscott

IRS attorneys will be even busier than normal next week, because another federal judge has told them to show up in court July 11 to defend the federal tax agency.

They will have to explain to U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton why the IRS shouldn't be required to let an outside expert evaluate whether emails on the computer hard drives of former IRS official Lois Lerner and six colleagues really are lost forever, as the agency recently told Congress.

The "outside expert" referred to here would not be a special prosecutor, but would be a very powerful official, a "special master," equipped with contempt power to compel discovery of all relevant materials. In many ways that official would be better than a special prosecutor since he or she would be appointed by the judge, not by the regime.

Judge Walton spanked the DOJ over the `New Black Pampers’ and Holder’s same obfuscatory, deceptive practices in that matter.
Koskinen and Lerner must be wetting their adult Depends. This could get good. I hope the judge keeps his nerve. You know these people play `Chicago-style’.

Show him or her the hard drives that accidentally ended up in buckets of Clorox and blame it all on the overzealous cleaning lady who doesn’t speak English and then apologize profusely.

Hey Boehner, hey Republicans in the House - do you have a pencil?

Use it to erase funding for the IRS. DEFUND those 16,000 new agents to collect Obamacare taxes.

Defund Lois Lerner's and that Kosigen turd's pensions.

Reduce by 30% the salaries and benefits of every IRS employee.

Man up Republicans. Man up! Got it?

OK, yeah—the critters found Holder in contempt & took away his birthday.
At least it’s a glimmer of hope that one branch of government may not be in the bag with Obama and complicit in tyranny.
If rank-and-file IRS employees start getting subpoenas, we might start getting answers.

Well when the judge finds a dead cat on his front stoop he will suddenly drop the case.
