IRS Deputy Inspector General Timothy P. Camus Tells Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) on Thursday It Took Investigators 2 Weeks to Recover 424 Backup Tapes of Lois Lerner’s Missing Emails Previously Said to be Unretrievable

IMAGINE THAT, ALL ONE HAD TO DO TO FIND LOIS LERNER’S MISSING IRS EMAILS WAS TO ASK …

Former IRS official Lois Lerner’s irretrievable and lost emails have been found. During a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on Thursday, IRS Deputy Inspector General Timothy P. Camus told Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) that it took OIG investigators just two weeks to recover 424 backup tapes that were previously said to be irretrievable. Camus said that “There is potential criminal activity.” GEE, YA THINK!!!

Of course we knew that Lerner’s emails existed all along, this has all been one big concerted coverup by the IRS because they know this scandal goes all the way to the Obama White House.

The IRS’s inspector general confirmed Thursday it is conducting a criminal investigation into how Lois G. Lerner’s emails disappeared, saying it took only two weeks for investigators to find hundreds of tapes the agency’s chief had told Congress were irretrievably destroyed.

Investigators have already scoured 744 backup tapes and gleaned 32,774 unique emails, but just two weeks ago they found an additional 424 tapes that could contain even more Lerner emails, Deputy Inspector General Timothy P. Camus told the House Oversight Committee in a rare late-night hearing meant to look into the status of the investigation.

“There is potential criminal activity,” Mr. Camus said.

WHO THINKS THAT ONE OF WE THE PEOPLE COULD EVER GET AWAY WITH THE FOLLOWING WITH THE IRS? People need to go to jail over this scandal and the IRS needs to be abolished so that this never happen again. The IRS cannot be used as a political weapon against “We the People” no matter what your political affiliation might be.

Partial transcript from hearing:

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT): Had anyone ever asked them for the tapes?

IRS Deputy Inspector General Timothy P. Camus: No.

Chaffetz: “We send a subpoena, we send letters, we have hearings, we hear all kinds of excuses from the IRS.  They cant have them, they’re recycled, they’ve been destroyed, their not available.  We can’t fine them. Every excuse you can have under the sun. You find them in two weeks, and then when you go talk to the IT people who are there in charge of them, they told you that they were never even asked for them. Is that correct?

Camus: That is correct.

Little League Baseball: Jackie Robinson West Stripped of U.S. Championship Title (VIDEO)

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THE STORY WAS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE … IT WAS.

The Little League feel good story of this past summer turns out to be another hoax and scandal. The Jackie Robinson West team, the first all-African-American team to win the US championship, has been stripped the U.S. championship. As reported at WGN9  Little League International has stripped Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West of its national title after finding the team falsified its boundary map.

The league made the announcement Wednesday morning, saying the Chicago team violated regulations by placing players on the team who didn’t qualify because they lived outside the team’s boundaries. Little League International also suspended Jackie Robinson West manager Darold Butler from league activity.

The announcement comes after an investigation that started when a suburban coach alleged the Jackie Robinson West team violated rules by poaching top players from nearby suburbs.

Little League had said in December that an investigation into the Chicago team found no violations.

Jackie Robinson West’s championship run captured the attention of the nation and turned the all-black team into heroes in their hometown.

ESPN:

Little League Baseball has stripped the U.S. championship from the Chicago-based Jackie Robinson West team and has suspended the coach for violating a rule prohibiting the use of players who live outside the geographic area that the team represents, it was announced Wednesday.

The Jackie Robinson West team, the first all-African-American team to win the championship, must vacate wins from the 2014 Little League Baseball International Tournament — including its Great Lakes Regional and United States championships.

The team’s manager, Darold Butler, has been suspended from Little League activity, and Illinois District 4 Administrator Michael Kelly has been removed from his position.

The organization found that the Jackie Robinson team used a falsified boundary map, and that team officials met with neighboring Little League districts in Illinois to claim players and build what amounts to a superteam.

As a result, the United States championship has been awarded to Mountain Ridge Little League from Las Vegas.

Bob Woodward Says on ‘Fox News Sunday’ … “There’s No Strategy” For ISIS and Obama White House Is “Micromanaging” Military

FRIGHTENING, JUST FRIGHTENING …

Yesterday on FOX News Sunday, WAPO’s Bob Woodward responded to Chris Wallace’s question regarding how Barack Obama is handling the war against ISIS and what to make of Obama’s comparisons to the crusades. Woodward eviscerated the Obama White House for having no plan for dealing with ISIS.

Bob Woodward said the military is upset because Susan Rice is telling the generals how to fight.

“If you talk to people in the White House and the military, I think there’s agreement and John McCain is right and General Flynn is right, there is no strategy. They have not sat down and said this is where we want to go and this is how we want to do it. And the measure of that, when you head into the weeds here, people from the White House are micromanaging the tactical situation on a daily and weekly basis. That’s not their job. They have to kind of do strategic planning and say what do we want to accomplish in the next year […] “And they have got all these people in the White House. You talk to people in the military who are there and they say ‘we are being micromanaged and we’re not given a real plan to say what are we going to do here.’ And it’s not the way to run a war or try to win a war.”

But what would you expect from an administration that thinks this myth of ‘GLOBAL WARMING’ is a greater threat to the United States than radical Islam.

New England Patriot Impromptu Press Conference on ‘Deflategate” … Belichick Says Pats Followed Every Rule in Preparing Their Footballs for AFC Championship Game Against Colts … Also, Different Air Pressure May be to Blame

Bill Nye Belichick, the Science Guy …

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick held an impromptu press conference this afternoon to emphatically say that the Pats followed every rule in preparing footballs for the AFC Championship game and provided a possible reason as to what may have happened in the case of “deflated balls”. Although Belichick said he was not a science guy, he did a rather good job of explaining what may have occurred from a scientific standpoint.Bill Belichick said that the balls were then delivered to the game’s officiating crew with the request that theybe inflated to 12.5 pounds per square inch. Belichick told the reporters that the Pats conducted an internal investigation as to the ball preparation process and concluded the following:

Football_deflategate

He said the Patriots conducted their own internal investigation in which they replicated their game-day procedures — including what would have happened last Sunday evening before their 45-7 win against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Patriot’s internal investigation included multiple recreations of the process that occurs during games, from the point in which quarterback Tom Brady and the equipment staff begin working on a set of brand new footballs. Belichick said the Patriots’ footballs were prepared according to quarterback Tom Brady’s preferred texture before the game — a process that included what Belichick described as “vigorous rubbing” that resulted in the balls’ PSI being raised by one pound.

Belichick stated, “I’m embarrassed to talk about the amount of time I’ve put into this, relative to the challenge in front of us.” In what may have been one of the greatest out of character moments of the Patriots coach, Bill Belichick even referenced the movie ‘My Cousin Vinny’, at the presser saying he was “no Mona Lisa Vito,” in terms of ball knowledge compared to Marisa Tomei’s character’s mechanical car knowledge (VIDEO).

ESPN:

Bill Belichick stated that the New England Patriots “followed every rule” in preparing their footballs for last Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, offering several potential reasons behind the “Deflategate” controversy.

Belichick addressed the issue in a lengthy statement Saturday, one day after the NFL announced that it has not drawn any conclusions yet on how the Patriots used under-inflated footballs during the first half of the conference title game against the Indianapolis Colts.

After detailing the organization’s preparation process and hinting that weather conditions may have affected the air pressure in the footballs, the longtime Patriots coach emotionally defended his team, saying “we did everything as right as we can do it.”

“At no time was there any intent whatsoever to try to compromise the integrity of the game or to gain an advantage,” Belichick said.

Let’s get a couple of things straight here, if this has been done by any of the other 31 NFL teams, “deflategate” would not be a story. Sorry, but it is true. People either love or hate the Patriots because of their dominance, their consistent winning, of course “Spygate,” and the fact that they have destroyed the myth that the NFL’s golden child, Peyton Manning, is not only the greatest QB of all time, he is not even the best QB of his era.

Gunshots Fired Outside of Vice President Joe Biden’s Private Home in Greenville, Delaware

Gunshots were fired Saturday night out of a  a vehicle as it sped past Vice President Joe Biden’s private residence in Greenville, Delaware. Neither the Secret Service and the local police were able to catch the vehicle as it raced away from the scene. That’s comforting.  According to reports, Biden and his wife, Jill, were not at home at the time when the incident occurred at around 8:25 pm.  The Secret Service is working with the New Castle County Police on investigating this incident.

On Saturday night a vehicle drove near Vice President Joe Biden’s residence in Delaware and fired multiple gun shots, but the vice president and his wife, Jill, were not home at the time, Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback told CNN.

The incident occurred around 8:28 p.m.

“A vehicle drove by the vice president’s residence at a high rate of speed and fired multiple gun shots. This occurred on a public road outside the established security perimeter. The shots were heard by Secret Service personnel posted at the residence and a vehicle was observed by an agent leaving the scene at a high rate of speed,” Hoback said.

Joe Biden was unavailable for comment to ask whether if he was home, if he would have taken his double barrel shotgun on the balcony and fired two blasts into the air to protect himself (VIDEO).

NCAA Announces They Will Restore Previously Vacated 112 Penn State Football Wins Making Joe Paterno Again the Winningest Coach in Major College Football History

MOVE OVER BOBBY BOWDEN, JOE PA IS BACK TO BEING THE WINNINGEST FOOTBALL COACH IN MAJOR COLLEGE FOOTBALL HISTORY …

Joe Paterno, the late head coach of the Penn St. Nittany Lions, is back to being the winningest coach in major college football history. The NCAA announced on Friday that they would restore 112 wins by the school’s football team that were wiped out in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation sex scandal. The deal still must be approved by the NCAA board and the Penn State board, but that is probably pretty much of a done deal. This  would return Joe Paterno’s record to 409-136-3. Wow, this is big. The NCAA just blinked. They are basically admitting they overstepped their authority in the sanctions following the Sandusky scandal.  By restoring the wins, Joe Paterno will move back to the top of college football’s all-time Division I, major college wins:

  1. Joe Paterno (409)
  2. Bobby Bowden (377)
  3. Paul “Bear” Bryant (323)
  4. Glenn Scobey Warner (319)

I wonder how long it will be before PSU brings back Joe Pa’s the statue?

Joe Paterno

The NCAA on Friday announced a proposed agreement that would restore 112 wins by the school’s football team that were wiped out during the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal and would put the late Joe Paterno back as the winningest coach in major college football history.

College sports’ governing body announced the proposed deal weeks before a scheduled trial in state court on the legality of the 2012 consent decree it would replace.

The new deal would direct a $60 million fine to address child abuse be spent within Pennsylvania and would resolve the lawsuit.

The deal still must be approved by the NCAA board and the Penn State board. Penn State trustees’ chairman Keith Masser told The Associated Press that board members were having a private discussion early Friday afternoon about the lawsuit.

The announcement follows the NCAA’s decision last year to reinstate the school’s full complement of football scholarships and let Penn State participate in post-season play, and comes just days after a federal judge declined to rule on the consent decree’s constitutionality. The proposed settlement does not discuss the validity of the original consent decree.

Watch live: Corman announcement on lawsuit over Penn State sanctions.

Today is a great victory for everyone who has fought for the truth in the Sandusky tragedy. The repeal of the consent decree and the return of the wins to the University and Joe Paterno confirm that the NCAA and the Board of Trustees acted prematurely and irresponsibly in the unprecedented sanctions the NCAA imposed on the University, the players, coaches and the community.

This case should always have been about the pursuit of the truth, not the unjust vilification of the culture of a great institution and the scapegoating of coaches, players and administrators who were never given a chance to defend themselves.

For nearly three years, everyone associated with Penn State has had to bear the mark of shame placed upon the institution by the NCAA. It was a grievously wrong action, precipitated by panic, rather than a thoughtful and careful examination of the facts.

Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman is holding a 1 p.m. news conference to make a major announcement in the ongoing litigation involving the NCAA and Penn State University concerning the validity of the 2012 Consent Decree that resulted in sanctions against Penn State.

Corman’s lawsuit has turned into a case testing the validity of the penalties contained in the consent decree that resulted in a $60 million fine, a bowl ban, scholarship reduction and the vacation of 112 victories earned by the football team between 1998 and 2011.

The pivot points for any new settlement of this case, which is currently scheduled for trial in Commonwealth Court next month, would be full restoration of the wins, final disposition of the fine proceeds, and some closure on the divisive issue of whether the NCAA properly intervened in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Penn State

UPDATE I: Statement from The Paterno family:

Today is a great victory for everyone who has fought for the truth in the Sandusky tragedy. The repeal of the consent decree and the return of the wins to the University and Joe Paterno confirm that the NCAA and the Board of Trustees acted prematurely and irresponsibly in the unprecedented sanctions the NCAA imposed on the University, the players, coaches and the community.

This case should always have been about the pursuit of the truth, not the unjust vilification of the culture of a great institution and the scapegoating of coaches, players and administrators who were never given a chance to defend themselves.

For nearly three years, everyone associated with Penn State has had to bear the mark of shame placed upon the institution by the NCAA. It was a grievously wrong action, precipitated by panic, rather than a thoughtful and careful examination of the facts.

Fortunately, through the tenacious efforts of Senator Jake Corman and Treasurer Rob McCord, a large measure of the wrong has been righted.  This is a major victory in our continued pursuit of justice for Penn State. The victims deserve the truth as do those who have been smeared by the deeply flawed Freeh report, which served as the basis of the actions by the Board Trustees and Penn State.

Through our pending litigation, we intend to continue the job of uncovering the full truth in this case.

UPDATE II: Here’s the release from the NCAA:

NCAA reaches proposed settlement in Corman lawsuit
Agreement allows fine money to be distributed

January 16, 2015 12:58pm

Programs serving child sexual abuse survivors will now receive millions of dollars as part of the NCAA’s proposed settlement with Pennsylvania state officials. This lawsuit stemmed from the NCAA’s sanctions against Penn State University for its role in allowing serial child sexual abuse to occur on its campus.

The proposed settlement agreement with the NCAA, university and state officials, among other things, restores Penn State’s vacated wins from 1998 through 2011.

Subject to board approval from Penn State and the NCAA, the new agreement between the NCAA and Penn State, replacing the 2012 consent decree between the parties, provides the following:

Penn State agrees to commit a total of $60 million to activities and programs for the prevention of child sexual abuse and the treatment of victims of child sexual abuse.
Penn State acknowledges the NCAA’s legitimate and good faith interest and concern regarding the Jerry Sandusky matter.

Penn State and the NCAA will enter into a new Athletics Integrity Agreement that (with concurrence of the Big Ten) includes best practices with which the university is committed to comply and that provides for the university to continue to retain the services of Sen. George Mitchell and his firm to support the university’s activities under the Athletics Integrity Agreement and in the areas of compliance, ethics and integrity.
In July 2012, the NCAA Division I Board of Directors and Executive Committee issued unprecedented sanctions for Penn State’s role in enabling child sexual abuse to occur on campus. In addition to the $60 million fine and vacation of wins, these penalties included a four-year postseason ban, scholarship reductions, five-year probation and a waiver of transfer rules. The NCAA Executive Committee restored postseason access and the full complement of scholarships in 2014, based on the recommendation from Athletics Integrity Monitor Sen. George Mitchell in response to the university’s progress.

“I am pleased to learn that financial resources to help child sexual abuse survivors will soon become available,” said Sen. George J. Mitchell. “I remain impressed with Penn State’s progress to date and look forward to its many reforms and improvements continuing to take root.”

“Continuing this litigation would further delay the distribution of funds to child sexual abuse survivors for years, undermining the very intent of the fine,” said Harris Pastides, University of South Carolina president and member of the NCAA Board of Governors. “While others will focus on the return of wins, our top priority is on protecting, educating and nurturing young people.”

The lawsuit originally asked the judge to restrict the distribution of the $60 million fine to child sexual abuse prevention organizations in Pennsylvania rather than national organizations. The NCAA repeatedly attempted to resolve the dispute regarding the fine, even agreeing to move the funds into a state endowment rather than distribute them nationally as originally intended. The judge denied this motion and expanded the lawsuit to include the NCAA’s authority to act in this matter, which the plaintiffs did not previously question. Penn State initiated the latest settlement discussions in mid-December.

“Today’s agreement with Penn State reaffirms our authority to act,” said Kirk Schulz, Kansas State University president and chair of the NCAA Board of Governors. “The NCAA has a legitimate role when a member’s actions threaten the integrity of college sports. We acted in good faith in addressing the failures and subsequent improvements on Penn State’s campus. We must acknowledge the continued progress of the university while also maintaining our commitment to supporting the survivors of child sexual abuse.”

The NCAA will aggressively defend the Paterno estate’s challenge to the validity of the now-replaced consent decree.

Dartmouth College Cheating Scandal … 64 Students, Including Many Varsity Athletes, Charged with Honor Code Violations Following Widespread Cheating Allegations in a Sports Ethics Class

CAN YOU SAY IRONY … DARTMOUTH COLLEGE CHEATING SCANDAL IN SPORTS ETHICS CLASS.

You just cant make this stuff up … 64 students at Dartmouth College, including many varsity athletes, have been charged with “Honor Code” violations following a widespread cheating scandal. The course in question that is at the forefront of the cheating scandal, hold it … hold it …. hold it … Sports ethics. UM, REALLY? How bad is it when you have a cheating scandal in a course created at an Ivy League school intended to help student-athletes, who sometimes had trouble with the coursework at Dartmouth. In other words, the course was intended to inflate scholarship athletes grades point averages. Is is a kin to cheating at basket weaving 101. Maybe the professors will give the cheaters an “A” for effort in cheating ingenuity?

Kind of reminds me of the “business ethics” question from the movie ‘Billy Madison’.

dartmouth

 Dartmouth College has charged 64 students, many of them varsity athletes, with honor code violations following allegations of widespread cheating in a sports ethics class.

Department of Religion Chairman Randall Balmer, who in November accused some of his students of misrepresenting their class attendance, said that “with a few exceptions, most of the students were suspended for a term.”

The college’s head of judicial affairs, Leigh Remy, declined to comment, though spokeswoman Diana Lawrence confirmed the number of students facing possible sanctions.

Lawrence said that the college would not make detailed comments on the judicial proceedings until the appeals process ends in mid-January.

According to Balmer, in late October, students who failed to attend class passed off handheld devices known as “clickers” to classmates. Those students then used the gadgets to answer questions on the absent students’ behalf to make it appear as though they were present in class, Balmer said.

Though Balmer said that 43 students — less than the total number of students facing sanctions — handed off their clickers to their peers, some others confessed to him that they had helped their friends cheat.

The course in question was originally intended to help student-athletes, who sometimes had trouble with the coursework at Dartmouth, Balmer said. After a popular first run last year, the fall term’s class swelled to more than 280 students, and attendance and cheating became a problem.

GRUBERGATE: Barack Obama Adviser Jonathan Gruber Said Back in 2009, Obamacare Will Not Be Affordable

GRUBERGATE: HE’S BACK … GRUBER SAID IN 2009 THAT THE AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE ACT WOULD NOT BE AFFORDABLE.

Imagine that, once of the chief architects of Obamacare, the Affordable Healthcare Act, said back in 2009 that it would not be affordable. Newly revealed Johnathan Gruber documents keep the unpopular signature piece of legislation by Barack Obama at the forefront of political discussion as 2015 will be much like 2014 for Democrats, running for cover and away from Obamacare. Johnathan Gruber is like the gift that keeps on giving. The docs reveal that Gruber questioned the affordability. Gruber said, “So what’s different this time? Why are we closer than we’ve ever been before? Because there are no cost controls in these proposals. Because this bill’s about coverage. Which is good! Why should we hold 48 million uninsured people hostage to the fact that we don’t yet know how to control costs in a politically acceptable way? Let’s get the people covered and then let’s do cost control.”

Gruber

American voters are stupid and Obamacare will not be affordable

Obama_never heard of gruber

President Obama’s health care adviser Jonathan Gruber said that the Affordable Care Act would definitely not be affordable while he was writing the bill with the White House.

As Gruber continues to withhold documents while he awaits a call-back for more testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in the new year, more shocking information is coming to light detailing the deceptions that went into the writing of the health-care law

Gruber said that Obamacare had no cost controls in it and would not be affordable in an October 2009 policy brief, presented here exclusively by TheDC. At the time, Gruber had already personally counseled Obama in the Oval Office and served on Obama’s presidential transition team. Obama, meanwhile, told the American people that their premiums would go down dramatically.

TPNN:

Gruber goes on to admit that there were NO cost controls initially in Obamacare, that they would deceptively get people hooked on faux coverage, then pull the rug out from underneath them by rationing care:

“So what’s different this time? Why are we closer than we’ve ever been before? Because there are no cost controls in these proposals. Because this bill’s about coverage. Which is good! Why should we hold 48 million uninsured people hostage to the fact that we don’t yet know how to control costs in a politically acceptable way? Let’s get the people covered and then let’s do cost control.”

At the same time, Obama was lying to Americans, telling us that annual premium costs would decline by an average of $2,500 per family, a number that was apparently pulled out of thin air.

Gruber then admits that, under Obamacare, the only way for the scheme to work will be by rationing care:

“There’s no reason the American health care system can’t be, ‘You can have whatever you want, you just have to pay for it.’ That’s what we do in other walks of life. We don’t say everyone has to have a large screen TV. If you want a large screen TV, you have to pay for it. Basically the notion would be to move to a level where everyone has a solid basic insurance level of coverage. Above that people pay their own, without tax-subsidized dollars, to buy a higher level of coverage.”

Retired ABC News Journalist Ann Compton Discussing Barack Obama: He Launches ‘Profanity-Laced’ Tirades Against Press

Imagine how Barack Obama would have acted and dealt with the press if they were not carrying the water for his administration? It is hard to believe that Obama had an adversarial role with the media when it was basically the MSM and their lack of vetting or asking any sort of investigative questions that got him elected and reelected.

Transcripts below from Newsbusters - C-SPAN, 38:05:

ANN COMPTON: Before I walked out the door on September 10, I was a strong voice for complaining that this particular administration has been more opaque than any I have covered about what the President does in the Oval Office everyday. He is far less accessible on photo-ops with meetings. Even some meetings on the record, meeting in the Roosevelt room with financial leaders from, from Wall Street or on issues with environmental groups, or with issues with environmental groups, with public opinion leaders, I think most presidents have been far more forthcoming than the second Obama term, in terms of what the President is doing every day and we almost never get photo-ops.

C-SPAN, 55:50:

LAMB: So, off of that experience, how many other presidents were that aware of what they said to you and how many just did not pay attention at all and you had no personal reaction from them?

COMPTON: I think most presidents realize – had a personal connection. I don’t think they ever — we were ever in a confrontation-type moment where they felt the need to apologize. I have seen in the last year Barack Obama really angry twice. Both were off-the-record times. One, profanity-laced where he thought the press was making too much of scandals that he did not think were scandals. Another where he took us to task for not understanding the limits he has with foreign policy and the way he’s dealing with the Middle East and Iraq, and Afghanistan. And I don’t find him apologetic. But I find him willing to stand up to the press and look them in the eye, even though it was off the record and just give us hell.

LAMB: Does he have a point?

COMPTON: From his point of view, he may. But we cover what we are allowed to cover. And when policy decisions and presidents are inaccessible and don’t take questions from the press on a regular basis, I think they get — they reap what they sow.

IRSGATE: TIGTA Tells Watchdog Group ‘Cause of Action’ 2,509 Pages of IRS Documents Were Given to the Obama White House … But TIGTA Wont Release Docs Citing Tax Code Privacy

WHERE IS THE MSM TALKING ABOUT THIS STORY … THE GREATEST WHITE HOUSE SCANDAL EVER!!!

Guess what America, the IRS scandal that was first said was only two rogue agents in Cincinnati, Ohio, then went to the stonewalling on Lois Lerner‘s missing emails, has now gone all the way to the Barack Obama White House and the MSM is no where to be found in reporting the story. The IRS watchdog group, Cause of Action, through the Freedom of Information (FOIA) got the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) to admit that there are 2509 pages of IRS documents that the Internal Revenue Service gave to the Obama White House in unauthorized requests. It does not get any more illegal than this.

However, the IRS watch watchdog (TIGTA)  is refusing to abide by a judges ruling compelling them to turn over the documents. This might be the most incredible and audacious excuse ever from the Obama administration. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration is stating that they are not providing the documents to ‘Cause of Action’ because of tax codes and privacy concerns. Are you kidding me? PRIVACY CONCERNS!!! You certainly had no problem violating these individuals and companies privacy by giving them illegally to the Obama White House. UNREAL.

Not a smidgen of corruption, eh?

An IRS watchdog is acknowledging that thousands of documents related to requests between the White House and the tax agency for unauthorized tax information exist — but says it must withhold them all due to privacy concerns.

The revelation by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) came as part of a lawsuit filed by non-profit group Cause of Action, which began investigating whether the IRS was improperly sharing taxpayer information with the White House in 2012.

Cause of Action originally filed a Freedom of Information Act request asking the IRS to turn over any documents, if they existed, related to correspondence between the IRS and the White House about requests for tax returns for individuals or businesses.

When the IRS said it was unable to do so because of constraints in the Internal Revenue Code, the group filed the lawsuit. A judge ruled that the IRS must turn over any relevant documents to Cause of Action by Dec. 1 to comply with the FOIA request.

On Tuesday, an attorney with TIGTA wrote a letter to Cause of Action, and acknowledged that the watchdog had located “2,509 pages of documents potentially responsive to your request.” Of those, TIGTA confirmed that 2,043 were in fact responsive to the request.

However, TIGTA said it could not release the documents to the group, citing the tax code.

This is the greatest scandal in American government and the media is no where to be found because the president is a Democrat and the first black elected president.
