    Tale of the Tapes: IRS head confirms investigators have found backup tapes in Lerner probe

    koskinen_072314.jpg

    The head of the IRS confirmed Wednesday that investigators looking into missing emails from ex-agency official Lois Lerner have found and are reviewing "backup tapes" -- despite earlier IRS claims that the tapes had been recycled.

    IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, testifying before a House oversight subcommittee, stressed that he does not know "how they found them" or "whether there's anything on them or not." But he said the inspector general's office advised him the investigators are reviewing tapes to see if they contain any "recoverable" material.

    The revelation is significant because the IRS claimed, when the agency first told Congress about the missing emails, that backup tapes "no longer exist because they have been recycled."

    It is unclear whether the tapes in IG custody contain any Lerner emails, but Koskinen said investigators are now checking.

    Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee first raised questions about the backup tapes on Monday, releasing a partial transcript from an interview with IRS official Thomas Kane. In it, Kane said "there is an issue" as to whether all the backup tapes were destroyed. Asked if they might still exist, he said he didn't know but "it's an issue that's being looked at."

    Investigators in Congress and with the inspector general's office want to see those backup tapes because of the possibility they might contain emails that otherwise were lost in Lerner's apparent hard drive crash in 2011. Lerner is the former IRS official at the center of the controversy over agency targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status -- the agency's acknowledgement last month that years' worth of emails were lost has infuriated GOP investigators.
    So now that they've had time enough to scrub away any incriminating evidence, add in fake data showing a "Balanced" approach to their Non-Profit review process, and completely clear the evidence which showed White House involvement,.... Now that the Cover Up is Done, they find the missing Back-Ups?

    BULL!

    Those tapes are not the real data, they're most likely a very carefully constructed cover up!

    This is far, far worse than anything done by the Nixon Administration, and yet the MSM and the Democrats are perfectly willing to stand by idle while our Democracy falls into Progressive-Fascism!

    We'll never know what was really in those emails now, and many of those in the Administration and IRS should be held accountable!

    There has to be a price for this level of Abuse of Power and Corruption or the country will collapse into the worst sort of FASCISM!

    Should we start an immediate Senate Investigation into Abuse of Power by the Executive Branch! Not just the IRS Emails, but Abuse of Power in MANY AREAS to Include:

    * IRS targeting Conservative Groups and Individuals who are out spoken against the Administration.
    * The DOJ openly and blatantly using RACE to determine if charges will be made and prosecuted.
    * The Use of U.S. Military to aid and abet the Muslim Brotherhood Rebels in a number of countries.
    * Obama Use of Executive Orders to circumvent the will of Congressional Legislation.
    * Presidential Final Signing of Legislation (ACA) which could not have been fully read, since it was not even fully Written at the time of the signing. (Congress too!)
    * Obama re-writing legislation written and passed by congress without going through the Legislative Amendment proper process.
    * Deliberating not enforcing our countries Immigration Laws, because he doesn't agree with the law as passed by Congress.
    * Releasing Thousands of Illegals being held for serious crimes.
    * Abuse of Executive Privilege to coverup the abuses of the Fast and Furious DOJ Operation
    * Abuse of Executive Powers, and outright deception of the American People and Press in the Benghazi Assaults and Murders.
    * Illegal Purges of the National Labs Staff to achieve Race and Gender Goals
    * Awarding high dollar contracts to Corporate Cronnies at GM and GE.
    * Connections between the White House and the falsification of VA records
    *
    * Sending U.S. Stimulus Dollars to China to purchase Alternative Energy Equipment, rather than purchasing from America Suppliers which would have actually stimulated the Economy.

    The point is, if this administration is going to CHEAT and LIE when being investigated for IRS abuse, chances are, they are lying and cheating about all of the other Democratic Party Scandals as well.

    So, shouldn't we Open up a Congressional House of Rep. GENERAL INVESTIGATION into a Pattern of Abuse of Official Powers by the Obama Administration?

    Shouldn't we also:

    * Demand the Immediate Resignation of Eric Holder?!
    * Demand the Immediate Resignation of ALL IRS executives appointed by the Obama Administration. Their Replacements will be Appointed by the House of Rep, not the Executive?
    * Suspend All IRS authority until the Agency can be investigated and put into order, stopping ALL legal actions, audits, collections and Funds Seizures.
    * Immediately Approve all IRS non-profit Requests made during the Obama Years, and put the burden of PROOF on Government to show good cause to deny them?

    Is it time to hold the Progressive-Fascist Accountable!

    And Elijah Cumnings said this is NOT how you run a investigation.

    We' re learning more and more so I say the investigation is being run quite well

    When this is all said and done Cummings among others should go to jail for obstruction.

    See, there just isn't any standard of evidence that will convince the conservatives here. If it doesn't fit their preconceived idea of what went down, it must be faked.

    What are you talking about ?

    This is about the emergency back up tapes that supposedly contained copies of Lois Lerner's E-mails.

    The Lying ass IRS Comissioner CONFIRMED under Oath that those tapes had been RECYCLED.

    That the copies of those E-mails were unretrievable.

    But a IRS IT official testified under Oath that tapes probably still existed an her E-mails could be retrieved.

    So another lie from the low life liberals who're trying to cover their asses.

    Do you know why their story changed ?

    Because TWO Federal Judges got involved in the investigation.

    Lying to them under Oath means jail time.

    Yes, and seeing as how both stories cannot be true, which one do you believe to be true?

    I dont believe anything they say.

    You see, they keep LYING.

    Not the House Committee, not Daryl Issa, NOT the Conservative posters on this forum.

    No, the IRS, Democrats and the Obama administration keeps LYING.

    Its the point of the thread that you've apparently over looked for some reason.
