IRS Gave White House Thousands of Documents on Taxpayers

The IRS improperly turned over thousands of confidential tax documents to the White House for review, according to information obtained from a lawsuit filed against the U.S. Treasury Department's inspector general by the legal advocacy firm Cause of Action, exposing a pipeline of communication between the two, the Daily Caller reports.

“[T]he Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed Cause of Action that there exist nearly 2,500 potentially responsive documents relating to investigations of improper disclosures of confidential taxpayer information by the IRS to the White House,” Cause of Action noted, according to the Daily Caller.


Such documentation, including the exchange of confidential information between White House policy adviser Jeanne Lambrew and former IRS official Lois Lerner, came to light after it was revealed that the the IRS had likely targeted conservative groups for review, including one that had sought in a 2012 lawsuit to overturn Obamacare's contraceptive mandate, the Daily Caller noted.

The Justice Department has asked for a longer window under which to review the newly found documents before releasing them publicly, the Daily Caller said.

The Washington Examiner's Paul Bedard, in his "Secrets" column, called news of the leaked documents a "shocking revelation."

I told you, I see JAIL time for many in this admin after they leave office. Obama better get them ALL charged before hand so that he can Pardon everyone of them before he leaves. He better hope the next President Pardons his sorry azz.  eric holder is the one I was to see in a pink jump suit.

I don't even think this white house cares anymore. the have lied, manipulated and violated every law that there is over the past 6 years.....and they will be covered up by the media, and everybody else that have supported these terrorists.

It's not 'little white lies' any more. The whole administration is on the verge of being sucked into an endless legal morass of it's own making.

IRS severely needs to be abolished. With the advent of computers and database programs; it's too easy to compromise our Constitutional Rights. I'm sure that Congress can come up with a taxpayer centered computer program that would at least eliminate most of the IRS.

The Justice Department has asked for a longer window under which to review the newly found documents before releasing them publicly, the Daily Caller said.

The Washington Examiner's Paul Bedard, in his "Secrets" column, called news of the leaked documents a "shocking revelation."

“This disclosure, coming only after Cause of Action sued TIGTA over its refusal to acknowledge whether such investigations took place, and after the court ordered TIGTA to reveal whether or not documents existed, signals that the White House may have made significant efforts to obtain taxpayers’ personal information,” Cause of Action wrote in a statement to the Examiner.

The new document release comes a month after a similar lawsuit by True the Vote got tossed by a federal judge. The conservative group, based in Houston, had alleged that the IRS targeted them and delayed their application for a 501(3)(C) nonprofit status, breitbart.com reported.

 Once again the tyrant Obama has broken federal law and voided the constitution! When will he be stopped? He must be stopped now! Why are the Republicans we sent to the house not doing something? Obama MUST be removed asap! If the congress cannot do it the military must arrest and remove the Tyrant. The people have the power through the Constitution to remove the Communist Jihadist homosexual Traitor. The proof is there right in front of everyone. Every day that goes by America is dying a little more! I pray the military will soon Oust the Gangster Obama and his regime and set up new elections soon before America is no more. Something Must be done! Now his Homosexual agenda is perverting our society. What else can he do to hurt Good and decent Americans and their family's? Every day Obama is in office he laughs at the voters and urinates on the constitution! He must be stopped any way possible!

Glenn how to close the IRS in 20 words.

Every one of these people should file civil rights violations  against everyone  involved.

   So what does this mean Obamy will just lie and get a pass from the media if it even gets that far.

and this violates how many laws... all of them...!!!

Do not give them time to destroy or redact the incriminating evidence.  Turn them over immediately to someone with the proper clearance who can be trusted.

Carolan
In this administration?? The DOJ??? The only one I can think of would be Sheriff Joe Arpaio's and a "People's Court"!

ALERT ALERT

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
