Issa to IRS Commissioner:
Release Lerner´s Emails or
Face Contempt

Townhall, by Katie Pavlich

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/26/2014 3:40:23 PM

Six months ago, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa subpoenaed the emails of former head of IRS Tax Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. Lerner was in charge during the IRS´ inappropriate targeting of conservative, patriot and tea party groups. IRS officials have failed to comply with the subpoena and today during a hearing on Capitol Hill, Issa threatened IRS Commissioner John A. Koskinen, one of only two political appointees at the agency, with contempt. "Unfortunately you´ve been more concerned with managing political fallout than complying with this Committee," Issa said, urging Koskinen to comply or "potentially be held in

Where was Elijah Cummings support for Issa´s efforts?

A week or so ago, Cummings´ made a fool of himself with his childish rant and unsupported assertions of a one-sided investigation. Time to meet your responsibilities, Elijah, and support legitimate efforts to get to the truth.

Issa´s doing the best he can under the circumstances.

I´m no computer geek but it seems to me they should just be able to type her name into the database to retrieve them, or open her hard drive and print them.

To the naysayers, what´s your solution?

Issa is doing what he can which with this criminal regime squatting in DC, gives him few options. But keeping this front and center for the coming months can help to roust some of the miscreant place holders out.

Give him some credit for not giving in to the bad press.

The promise of "redacted copies" is nonsense. Lerner is a public employee, at work. Those emails belong to her employer by law. The employer is the American public, and Congress is their representative, so they better get those emails over quick.

He should tell Boehner he simply isn´t going to play the game. Subpoenas, contempt, THE PURSE STRINGS. Mark Levin has educated many of us on the many avenues available to the POWERFUL House leadership. It´s a lie we are told that there is nothing to be done. Lerner would already be disgraced and headed to jail if she were before Democrat-led House Committees.

Issa is building a record for the impeachment and conviction of the first black potus( who is actually half black or maybe Arab depending upon who the father is).
Obama and the Dems have weaponized the government against Americn citizens-IRS, Obamacare, Benghazi, Fast and Furious.
Issa is getting the evidence on record.
Need a Republican/conservative/tea party Senate to convict.
It´s coming.
Stay the Course.
Perhaps Obama will also be exposed s in eligible and then ALL will be Null and Void.
It is a Battle long in the making. The Looters will be exposed and held to account.

I´ve been screaming at these talking heads when they say, well, they´ll have to do a lot of redactions and that will take time. First off (Greta, et al) when a Chairman of a Congressional committes asks a federal agency for records, they receive (well they use to in the pre FBP days) unredacted records. Any personal information, which should be minimal at best, since these are official work emails, is/should be protected/redacted by the Committee, in any public discussions or if released.

To the Issa critics, consider this. Issa is able to sit next to Cummings without spitting in his face. That is a feat that I could never accomplish.
Furthermore, regardless of what you think of Issa, we can trust Gowdy, Chaffetz, and Jordan to do their jobs on the committee.

This hearing was used to point out the obvious. They had to get him on the record why he isnt releasing her emails, per the subpoena. Just heard Gowdy saying, these are not emails that should have to be redacted. Start with January 2010, they should be able to do that by tomorrow if they wanted to.

I think contempt charges are in the works, so we have to just see how this falls. They have to give him a chance to give them something.

If he still thumbs his nose at them, get them in the hands of the lawyers. pronto

Let´s review what we are up against: What we have here is a party, the democrats, who have been infiltrated, corrupted by one or more foreign powers and George Soros; all the Fed alphabets are now infiltrated and corrupt-NSA, CIA, FBI, IRS, EPA.
So of course it is going slow. Do not shoot our only troopers. Patience, resolve, determination win the day. Besides the tortoise won the race, not the hare.

What so many of us here at LCom are forgetting is the simple fact that if Issa or anyone else in the House would try to use the power of the purse to put pressure on those who will not comply with their investigations, the establishment Republicans will NOT help or assist them in any way. To do so could cost them some votes in the next election, don´t cha know. As it stands, Issa is trying to do the best he can, but gets NO support from the House leadership. None at all.

I believe you´re right, #28, but can you give us the reference? I´m not sure, but I believe Congress´ ability to arrest is a good deal softer than in a standard court of law.

Susan McDougal spent months in prison for contempt, but there was a special prosecutor involved. She also by her own choice preferred to stay in prison than to meet the repercussions of Billy and the Hildabeast as did Vince Foster and her husband and more than a hundred others.

Koskinen´s smirk was really childish and shows his disrespect for the committee and ultimately himself. As much as I would like this whole thing to be decided and those found to be responsible suitably charged, fined, jailed or whatever, the longer this goes on the better for the Republicans. It can only help change how voters see their government´s and our employees´ irresponsible behavior. Those people at the IRS work for us and should be fired immediately.

It’s one thing to take care of illegal immigrants who come to America and are under the age of 18 (before sending them back), and it’s another to burn through taxpayer money rolling out the red carpet. From the Gateway Pundit: The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. That resort hotel? The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites in Weslaco, Texas – a generously acommodated resort with such amenities as an outdoor swimming pool (pictured above).

Car theft is a major problem in America, but most people would agree that it’s hard to lose a car. As an investigation by the Daily Beast has learned, however, the Pentagon has somehow lost multiple cars belonging to American servicemen and women. Here’s how it happens: The Pentagon often reassigns their soldiers to different stations throughout the world, and helps their families defray the financial costs of moving — including the cost of shipping their cars. For decades, the Pentagon contracted this service out to American Auto Logistics (AAL), but replaced them this summer with a company called International

In 2012, I alerted the federal government to the growing problem of unaccompanied minors making the treacherous journey across Mexico to reach the United States. At that point the minors could annually be numbered in the hundreds or thousands. In recent months, tens of thousands of children have come across the border and are now housed in federal facilities across the U.S., the result of failed federal policies and Washington´s indifference to securing the border. I visited one of these facilities in June and saw these children, frightened and alone, who left their homes and families, survived a harrowing trip, and

Attorneys allied with Democrats in opposing the suit said it´s the GOP that´s going too far by trying to resolve a political dispute by giving the question to the courts to decide.

WASHINGTON — The White House said Tuesday night that it would refuse to allow its director of political strategy to testify Wednesday before a Republican-led House committee investigating whether the administration had illegally conducted political activity in the West Wing. In a letter to Representative Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the president’s top lawyer said that as a member of the executive branch the political director, David Simas, had immunity from being compelled to testify before Congress. Mr. Issa’s committee subpoenaed Mr. Simas last week, contending that the White House should not

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
