(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 Watchs Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the IRS.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Well it wasn’t a crime till we got caught.
IRS: “You betcha!”
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.
They won't tell you after you've caught them.
Jim Jordan GRILLS Irs Commissioner John Koskinen 7/23/14. FULL EXCHANGE
“Jordan explained that the committee first caught the IRS after a series of events which started with Judicial Watchs 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.
Yes. Indeed they did.
But... But.... Cummings says it’s all our fault that they got caught.
You ever see a bigger POS than this Cummings A-hole?
Cummings is an insult to humanity...no, to subhumanity.
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.
No mercy on these bastards; they would have shown NO American citizen any. I want LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG prison sentences for these people; federal, no probation or early release.
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
Weeeeell, Jimbo, you still haven’t caught anything. GET THE DATA, FAST!!
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.
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.
Yes-— pOs! With the O having those familiar red & white stripes thru it
Well deserved abuse.
Here is written confirmation that they did succeed.
Finally, after all these years.
Hmmm.... that's what they said to Edison after he perfected the light bulb.
IRS backup tapes discovered!
The emails were never lost. They were destroyed.
