The Obama IRS scandal & coverup just got a whole lot worse. These officials would rather risk jail than provide the Lois Lerner emails.
The IRS failed to search five of six possible sources of electronic media for Lois Lerner’s emails, according to documentation released by the House Oversight Committee on Monday.
Over the course of investigations into the Lois Lerner targeting scandal, Commissioner John Koskinen repeatedly assured Congress that he would provide all of Lois Lerner’s emails. But based on testimony from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), this did not occur. The agency’s ineptness -- or corruption -- resulted in 24,000 Lerner emails being lost when they were “accidently” destroyed.
According to TIGTA official Timothy Camus, the IRS had six possible sources to search for Lois Lerner’s emails:
“The hard drive would have been a source, Blackberry source, backup tapes a source, the backup tapes for the server drives and then finally the loaner lap tops.”
When asked how many of these sources the IRS searched, Camus says was unable to say for certain whether the IRS had searched any.
Commissioner Koskinen stated that the IRS took “extraordinary efforts” to recover any emails, but this is clearly not the case. Years after the investigations into the Lois Lerner targeting scandal began, the agency’s unprecedented obstruction has meant Americans are no closer to the truth.
The GOP has demanded Koskinen’s firing, or else they will hold impeachment hearings. Those hearings should proceed with all deliberate speed.
Obama is running a rogue government.
sold for parts?
I know you have a plethora of outrage for one dead lion named Cecil.
Do the libs on this board ever get tired of being pan-slapped by you on a daily basis? Hahaha.......Just wondering.
Learned his lessons well
Republican members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are calling on President Obama to fire Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen, threatening to impeach the IRS head if the commander in chief does not remove Koskinen himself.
Commissioner Koskinen … has failed the American people by frustrating Congress’s attempts to ascertain the truth. A taxpayer would never get away with treating an IRS audit the way that IRS officials have treated the congressional investigation. Civil officers like Mr. Koskinen have historically been held to a higher standard than private citizens because they have fiduciary obligations to the public.
They listed the ways in which Koskinen, who took over the IRS after the agency was discovered in 2013 to have targeted conservative groups, has breached his “basic fiduciary duties” in the wake of the scandal.
For instance, they explained, Koskinen’s IRS erased backup tapes archiving tens of thousands of emails–some of which belonged to ex-official Lois Lerner–despite a preservation order sent to employees, after which Koskinen did not inform Congress for four months of the resulting “gap” in Lerner’s email communications despite testifying before the committee under oath.
Desantis and Jordan also knocked Koskinen for providing “categorically false” congressional testimony, failing to amend false statements, and refusing to institute controls within the IRS to ensure that non-profit groups are not targeted in the future.

The 19-seater jet whooshed Clinton from Iowa to New Hampshire with the ink still drying on her presidential campaign's climate change agenda
Plane burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour and costs $5,850 per hour to rent
Its itineraries are secret because the owner has asked the Federal Aviation Administration to withhold flight plans from the public
Liesallday wrong again......lol........the SILENT MORAL MAJORITY is comin' after you godlesscommies!
Donald Trump is still the clear front-runner of the 2016 GOP presidential field.
A new Economist/YouGov poll released on Friday actually showed Trump gaining support in the last week, despite a controversy over his comments questioning Sen. John McCain's (R-Arizona) status as a "war hero."
And the YouGov poll isn't the only poll to show that Trump is still comfortably in the lead. A Monmouth University poll of GOP voters in Iowa showed that Trump's support remained unchanged following the McCain flap. And an ABC/Washington Post poll released earlier this week found him nearly doubling Bush's support, as well.
IG's: "The emails were CLASSIFIED WHEN THEY WERE SENT, and they are CLASSIFIED NOW"
The four emails in question “were classified when they were sent and are classified now,” said Andrea Williams, a spokeswoman for the inspector general.
+++The inspector general reviewed just a small sample totaling about 40 emails++++
in Mrs. Clinton’s inbox—meaning that many more in the trove of more than 30,000 may contain potentially secret or top-secret information.
That’s a failure rate of … ten percent.
The sample of 40 e-mails indicates that there may have been massive amounts of classified material sent in the 33,000 e-mails that Hillary Clinton actually produced. One has to wonder how many of the other 30,000-plus e-mails that Hillary claimed were personal in nature might have even more sensitive material.
Let's get the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton underway, shall we?
There is a MASSIVE SWIFTY AWAITING HER.......a swifty so huge.....
.......it would make the last swifty victim John Kerry blush.....
(I pray she survives the primaries.....I want to see this swifty administered to one of the most corrupt, vile humans on Earth)
Don't bring REAL SCIENCE/REALITY to liberals. They hate that.
Thus the lack of response to the planned parenthood ATROCITIES on this board.....and the sellout leftist media CBS, ABS, NBS, CNN, MSLSD blackout of this sickening INFANTICIDE happening every day in the USA.
They have to hide Hillary Clinton, the 70 year old, dementia, alcoholic. She is a horrible candidate. A STIFF.
Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are licking their chops.
In both debates and a national general election. You fear TRUMP....for good reason.
60% + from Mexicoke, and nearly 25% from other latino nations. See the benefit of building a massive fence on our SOUTHERN BORDER, libs? And using drones to shoot the illegal latinos on sight for trying to jump it?
Of course. Notice that.
The leftist brat can't stand the scrutiny of conservative thought/rebuttal in the light of day.
You can see why they have to keep this 70 yr old, washed up loser under wraps.....she is a pathetic speaker/campaigner.
Americans are fed up with both of those oligarchic, crime families.
