Rep. Jordan to IRS on Lost Emails: ‘You Guys Were Never Going to Tell Us Until We Caught You’
cns news ^ | 7/23/14 | ali meyer

Posted on 07/23/2014 7:32:26 PM PDT by Nachum

(CNSNews.com) - Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) on Wednesday called out the IRS on holding back information regarding lost emails from former IRS official Lois Lerner, telling the IRS Commissioner John Koskinen at a House Subcommittee for Economic Growth, Job Creation, and Regulatory Affairs on Capitol Hill, “You guys were never going to tell us until we caught you.”

At the hearing titled, “An Update on the IRS Response to its Targeting Scandal,” Jordan explained the timeline of events in the ongoing IRS investigation, citing how Koskinen knew about the missing emails in April yet waited until June 13, 2014 to bury the information in a report released on a Friday.

“My theory is this, Mr. Koskinen, you guys were never going to tell us until we caught you,” Jordan said.

Jordan explained that the committee first “caught” the IRS after a series of events which started with Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the IRS.

Well, of course not.

But, you dip sheets didn’t find the guts or where with all to ask the right questions and the second their answer didn’t jive with reality, followed through and beat them like a rented mule.

I can think of a few of you, like Issa, who would know and understand how email, work product, collaborative work product and information is handled, indexed, archived and stored, just as they would be in most businesses.

You are not serious about this and it really seems you are doing everything you can to slow walk these investigations and run the clock out, in concert, with this administration.

It doesn't make it any less criminal and we've got to keep pushing for conviction even after Obama and crew are gone.

Ya think?

They won't tell you after you've caught them.

“Jordan explained that the committee first “caught” the IRS after a series of events which started with Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the IRS.”

Over the years, Judicial Watch has taken plenty of abuse from Freepers for never succeeding.

Here is written confirmation that they did succeed.

You ever see a bigger POS than this Cummings A-hole?

Ummm, I’m no it guy, but should it really matter whether Lerner’s HDD is gone? Isn’t there an email server somewhere?

Amen! Heretofore, it has been a traditional courtesy for an incoming administration to drop any ongoing investigations of the outgoing one.

America cannot afford to extend such a courtesy to the Obama administration!

The Obama administration has made a purposeful attempt to subvert the Constitution and undermine our liberties. They have done real damage to the country and compromised its future, to the detriment of future generations.

Such actions cannot go unpunished.

There’s more that the IRS isn’t going to tell you unless you find it out on your own, so quit being surprised and keep digging

Cummings epitomizes what’s wrong with all democrats in Washington. Ignore anything that makes your party look bad and blame everyone else when that fails. All to try and protect an ideology that has and always will fail on every level.

Are they on drugs or are they really this insane and drunk on power? To say I despise people like Cummings would be a huge understatement.

You wanna bet on that? Such is the culture of the cesspool called Washington, DC. Yes, he'll get away with everything and even get libraries and schools named for him.

Makes me want to puke. No, not just that, it's making me want to leave America forever.... Very sad that.

It means nothing to "grill" Koskinen. He is merely the latest flak-catcher for the regime. These hearings are nothing but sound and fury until they produce an effect, an outcome, more substantial than mere venting of spleen.

Upon reflection, I'd substitute "unrevealed" for "unpunished".

Perhaps, you're correct. Punishment for crimes committed -- even against the glorious idea that is America -- might be asking too much in today's supercharged hyper-partisan era.

However, the American people have a real need to know about the crimes perpetrated in their name, but without their consent. Lay it all out on the table, let us see what was done, I say.. Let us realize what we might've lost.

Well deserved abuse.

Here is written confirmation that they did succeed.

Finally, after all these years.
