Trey Gowdy Eviscerates IRS Commissioner
Breitbart TV, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/23/2014 4:32:42 PM

Wednesday at a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee hearing on the Internal Revenue Service´s (IRS) Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) would not let IRS Commissioner John Koskinen off the hook over his failure to bring acceptable answers to Congress about the supposed loss of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails. The South Carolina Republican warned the IRS commissioners, "Words have consequences," as he hammered Koskinen for trying to claim he did not pursue what happened to the emails because he did not want to interfere with the Inspector General investigation saying "people site ongoing IG investigations

Comments:
Did you ever notice that John Koskinen bears an uncanny resemblance to Lord Voldemort?

In his always wonderful Fox News First newsletter of today, Chris Stirewalt said that Commissioner Koskinen could expect to be "barbequed" (sic). that´s exactly what Gowdy did, don´t you agree?

Trey Gowdy makes me so proud. Finally, someone with good values and morals is making a difference. Maybe one day he will run for President, but right now we need him where he is plus a few more good men just like him.

Gowdy knows something, and he´s leading the IRS Commissioner straight into a minefield. Meanwhile, he and other corrupt appointees are waiting for their blanket pardons come January 2017.

Koskinen´s job is to keep Congressional investigators from finding the links between Obama, his henchmen and the IRS thugs such as Lois Lerner. So far, Koskinen is succeeding with this cover up of an incredible scandal, especially since this exchange with Trey Gowdy will go unreported by old media. Our only hope is that an IRS IT techie has enough integrity to give the incriminating emails on the IRS servers to Issa and Gowdy. Without an ethical insider at the IRS, and there has to be one out of 110,000 employees, Obama´s stonewall will protect him for another 2.5 years.

I want to see Trey Gowdy as Director of the FBI or Attorney General. He is just too good at slicing and dicing bloviating, prancing bureatcrats.

Does anyone else notice that Koskinen is not quite so supercilious lately? Just a tiny bit more humble these days.

What if...they already have the emails? Provided by a whistleblower who has gone into the double secret witness protection program.

A nice dream rather than the continuing nightmare of the Obama cabal which "punishes it´s enemies" with a viciousness not shown in the history of any Spite House administration.

Looks like a lot of bloviating and political posturing to me.

Gowdy could have asked relevant questions, like "How did you confirm the backup tapes did not contain the old emails? Did you view or restore the contents of the tapes? What is the IG doing differently?"

Questions like that - and waiting for Koskinen to answer - does more to get to the bottom of things than his posturing does.

Gowdy´s in campaign mode. Wonderful. Just another stupid politician.

The Dem Party is not a philosophical group, it is a criminal enterprise.

The way to combat the decline of the country is not to put "conservative" slogan mongers in the White House.

No.

Put someone in the White House who has experience putting these thugs in jail.

Only two names I have are T. Gowdy (ex-U.S. Attorney), and Chris Christie (ex-U.S. Attorney). If you don´t like these two, find other who "Have experience putting thugs in jail"

To expand on # 19´s idea.
Our next nominee should promise the most ethical administration in history, when asked how by a deservingly skeptical press he needs to state he will pursue criminal charges of ALL members of the previous administration. Running out the clock will no longer be an option.

# 12 is realistic.

Eric Holder refuses to appoint a Special Prosecutor
and has stonewalled every House investigation
from Fast and Furious to Benghazi to the IRS.
Everyone is home free because
they know Holder has their backs.
Today´s hearing may get coverage on Fox, but,
nothing will change until a
Republican Administration is sworn in.
Although don´t hold your breaths waiting for justice.
Be prepared for Barry to pardon everyone ..and I do mean everyone ... from illegals to Mumia Abu Jamal to possibly Sheik Khalid Mohammed and other Gitmo animals
on his way out.

When I see a Reply like 17, I think a number of things. One is "did the poster watch the hearing?" And "has the poster watched the other Koskinen hearings?"

Secondly, no one who has ever watched and listened to Trey Gowdy would think he was just a "stupid politician".
He is a truth-seeker and a patriot. No one here will convince me otherwise.

As for Gowdy´s asking those questions, anyone who has watched these hearings with Koskinen knows they have been asked over and over in many different ways. Koskinen is the IRS´s Sgt. Schultz. He knows nuh-thing...

His stonewalling is being chipped away. Other persons appearing before the committee are giving testimony that conflicts with his. He has several choices: to appear to be stonewalling or to appear to be incompetent, derelict in his duty.

To some of us the occasional misspelled word is not a major speed bump. If it is that annoying, let the site where the error occurred know. They´ll probably appreciate it (if they haven´t already corrected it).

Otherwise it is less disruptive to post an opinion on the article itself or move on. Most of us know how to spell. It is just not our raison d´etre.

An unusual Republican proposal makes medical sense, kind of. Let it never be said that Republicans are fighting a Forever War on contraception. In several states, Republican candidates are calling for more birth control—on demand and sold right next to the Tylenol. "The pill ought to be available over the counter, round the clock, without a prescription,” says Colorado’s Cory Gardner in a new campaign ad. For the GOP candidates supporting this measure, it’s a way to woo women voters while sidestepping Obamacare’s mandate that companies cover birth control on their health-insurance plans—and that health plans offer the pills without

The presumed presidential candidate´s speeches are long on pablum and short on content. This is the campaign we´re in for. Everywhere Hillary Clinton goes, a thousand cameras follow. Then she opens her mouth, and nothing happens. Clinton made a much-ballyhooed appearance in Iowa over the weekend, giving a speech widely noted for its substancelessness. She “had no explicit message of her own,” Politico noted, while The Economist pronounced it “underwhelming.” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough was so frustrated by Clinton’s lack of verve that he went on an extended rant about it, proclaiming, “I know her and like her, but she puts

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail. “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, according to a source in attendance. Maverick PAC has described itself

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed. The French famously said “non” in 2003 when President Bush

(Video)Friday during the White House press briefing, National Security Advisor Susan Rice abruptly left in the middle of a question after confusing reporters with her announcement President Barack Obama was going ahead with air strikes in Syria. When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room

The National Security Advisor of the United States did something astonishing yesterday. In the middle of a reporter’s questioning, she bolted from the podium of the White House pressroom, saying, “Nice to see you,” fleeing a situation she evidently was unable to cope with. The question that caused Ms. Rice to flee was a fairly simple one: whether or not the president has authorized the bombing of targets in Syria. Rice responded multiple times that the timing of strikes would not be released, but that was not the question at hand, and reporters pressed her on whether her boss had authorized

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined
