The administration and it’s minions in government agencies are doing their best to hide and destroy evidence in the IRS scandal but they haven’t been able to destroy everything that points to the Department of Justice (Eric Holder), the FBI, and possibly even the White House according to a new report by Judicial Watch from their latest Freedom of Information findings:
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released new Department of Justice (DOJ) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents that include an official “DOJ Recap” report detailing an October 2010 meeting between Lois Lerner, DOJ officials and the FBI to plan for the possible criminal prosecution of targeted nonprofit organizations for alleged illegal political activity.
The newly obtained records also reveal that the Obama DOJ wanted IRS employees who were going to testify to Congress to turn over documents to the DOJ before giving them to Congress. Records also detail how the Obama IRS gave the FBI 21 computer disks, containing 1.25 million pages of confidential IRS returns from 113,000 nonprofit social 501(c)(4) welfare groups – or nearly every 501(c)(4) in the United States – as part of its prosecution effort. According to a letter from then-House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, “This revelation likely means that the IRS – including possibly Lois Lerner – violated federal tax law by transmitting this information to the Justice Department.”
The documents were produced subsequent to court orders in two Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits: Judicial Watch v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:14-cv-1956) and Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (No. 1:14-cv-1239).
All of this nefarious activity occurred just prior to the 2012 election. It was a tactic to prevent conservative organizations from fully participating in the political process. The conservative organizations would not be involved in politics any more than hundreds of George Soros supported 501c4 organizations are and have been in any every election cycle. Lois Lerner and Eric Holder had no such concerns about these groups.
Nixon was impeached for simply considering the targeting of private citizens by the IRS. This administration not only carried through with such plans but also illegally shared 1.25 million pages of private citizens information with the FBI and threatened prosecution for imagined abuses in the future.
