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.

Del Portillo succeeded Opus Dei´s founder, St. Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, as leader of the organization.

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

The U.S. had expected the Iraqi army to do more against extremists, president says in acknowledgment of intelligence shortcomings. President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes. The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The officer posted inside the front door appeared to

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at
