White House, IRS exchanged confidential taxpayer info:

Top Internal Revenue Service Obamacare official Sarah Hall Ingram discussed confidential taxpayer information with senior Obama White House officials, according to 2012 emails obtained by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and provided to The Daily Caller.

Lois Lerner, then head of the IRS Tax Exempt Organizations division, also received an email alongside White House officials that contained confidential information.

Lois(I have done nothing wrong)Lerner gave confidential Tea Party tax info to FEC, violating law.

The Internal Revenue Service shared highly confidential tax information of several Tea Party groups in the IRS scandal with the Federal Election Commission, a clear violation of federal law, according to newly obtained emails.

The public watchdog group Judicial Watch told Secrets Thursday that it was former scandal boss Lois Lerner who shared the information on groups including the American Future Fund and the American Issues Project.

The emails obtained by Judicial Watch show that the IRS, which was considering the tax status of the groups, gave the FEC the tax returns of the groups, including income, expenditures and staff pay. The emails also revealed the exact wording of the prying political questions the IRS wanted the groups to reveal, such as their goals and the requests for brochures and ads.

“These extensive emails and other materials provide a disturbing window into the activities of two out-of-control federal agencies: the IRS and FEC,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.“And there is the very real question as to whether these documents evidence a crime.”

NEWS FLASH - it isn't the Tea Party she is afraid of...

Rep. Darrell Issa has ordered Lois Lerner to return before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee he chairs to testify on the alleged targeting of conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.

The former IRS official is being represented by William Taylor III of Zuckerman Spaeder LLP., who has asked that Congress reconsider its decision to recall Lerner, saying she FEARS for her life.

Taylor claims Lerner has received “numerous death threats”

She intends to again invoke her right not to incriminate herself. However, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee members insist that Lerner lost that privilege after she delivered an opening statement declaring her innocence at a hearing last year. Many lawmakers contend that she is legally obligated to answer questions on her statement and are reportedly considering options to make her answer for it.

“There is talk about contempt,” Rep. Jim Jordan told Politico.“We’ll see — we’ve got to give her a chance to answer our questions.”

Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) added:“If we have to hold her in contempt, so be it. I would vote to support that.”

Under threat of subpoena from Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, the Internal Revenue Service now says it will "turn over emails and other documents from Lois Lerner", who remains at the heart of allegations the agency targeted conservative groups.

Previously requested Lerner emails since 2009 were disappointing in that the IRS had used a keyword search to release only a limited number of documents.

“From the few Lerner documents we have received, we know that Washington, D.C., orchestrated the targeting of groups applying for tax-exempt status, surveillance of existing tax-exempt groups and formed the proposed 501(c)(4) rules designed to push conservative groups out of the public forum,” Camp said Friday.

“The remaining documents are key to determining the level of wrong doing and deception committed by this agency.”

No wonder Rep. Elijah Cummings has been trying his best to dirsupt the IRS investigation: He's DIRTY!

Catherine Engelbrecht from True the Vote:“Today’s committee action reveals what we knew all along. Partisan politics and the weaponization of government against opponents of this administration is real and continues,” Engelbrecht said in a statement.“Elijah Cummings has blocked the IRS abuse investigation all along. We now see clearly that two branches of government have colluded to target and silence private citizens.”

“America has come to a tipping point,” she added.“No more lies. No more cover-ups. No more collusion. Enough is enough. Finally, we have a chance for the rule of law to be re-established, thanks to the bold efforts of Chairman Issa and Rep. Jordan.”

The scandal has evolved - thank you Freedom of Information Act !!!
(BTW - these are some of the same emails Congress has been requesting for several months)

Larry Noble, a former law professor, now with the Soros-funded Campaign Legal Center, was referenced in emails from Lois Lerner as someone who proposed jailing conservatives who didn't meet the IRS's convoluted definition of not engaging in political speech. The same definition that they just backed off of this week.

So, the party in power wasn't satisfied with their crushing of the Tea party in order to allow Obama to win reelection, but they had to go for the jugular. Now the house of cards is going to come down.

The question is - Can they hold them off until after the next election?

IRS Chief Admits: White House lied that Scandal Was Just "Rogue Agents".

c-span.org
Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen admitted that the White House’s characterization of the IRS targeting scandal as the actions of rogue agents was inaccurate when asked by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC).

Koskinen argued,“The basic premise that this was a conspiracy driven by the White House” was wrong.

Gowdy pointed out that the White House inserted itself in the controversy, and asked whether the White House’s claim that misconduct was conducted solely by “two rogue agents in Ohio” was correct. Koskinen responded,“Not that I know of.”

Gowdy then pressed Koskinen, and got him to admit that the White House inserted itself into the scandal, and that a scandal could exist, even if it didn’t reach the White House.

If you want a good illustration of how Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the Justice Department and its prosecutorial decision-making, all you have to do is look at what Justice has not done in just one part of the IRS scandal. Despite its agreement to settle a lawsuit filed by the National Organization for Marriage against the IRS for the illegal disclosure of confidential tax information, it has not prosecuted any of the individuals or organizations who illegally disclosed and published that information.

When you're dirty and you know it:

The DOJ just got busted Conspiring with House Dems on IRS Documents

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) says the Obama administration’s Justice Department has been caught red-handed trying to orchestrate the leak of committee documents related to the ongoing IRS investigation, which would have allowed Justice to comment on the documents before Republicans made them public.

Issa says he has clear evidence of this — a Justice official mistakenly called Issa’s staff directly, instead of calling a Democratic office, and asked Issa’s staff to leak the information “before the Majority”— meaning Republicans — could share it.

According to Issa’s letter, a senior Justice official called the committee on Friday, and reached Issa’s Republican staff. The official said Justice was sending over certain documents to Republicans that evening related to Andrew Strelka, a former IRS official who now works at Justice and is involved in the IRS investigation.

Republicans have complained about Strekla’s involvement in the case given his past work at the IRS.

The official then said Justice was not allowed to release the documents to the press, but said Justice wanted to get it to the press somehow so it could comment on the documents before Issa could.
