Posted on 08/03/2013 6:41:16 PM PDT by servo1969
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform subpoenaed Obama Treasury Secretary Jack Lew for withholding documentation from Congress in the ongoing IRS Tea Party Scandal investigation.
The Oversight Committee accuses the Obama Administration of impeding and obstructing the investigation.
During the past two weeks, President Obama and you have repeatedly labeled the IRSs strategy of targeting Americans for their political beliefs as a phony scandal. While the Obama Administration has so publicly deflected responsibility for the targeting, it simultaneously has attempted to thwart congressional oversight into the matter the IRS has engaged in a systematic effort to delay, frustrate, impede, and obstruct the Committees investigation, Issa writes in a letter to Lew accompanying the subpoena.
The IRS targeted over 292 conservative groups before the 2012 election. The IRS abuse continues to this day.
Earlier this week the IRS turned over thousands of pages most of them completely unreadable to the Oversight Committee.

The best indicator of a PHONY ADMINISTRATION is the number of its REAL SCANDALS.
Commie Obamas talking points are thus smokescreen distractions for the products of Obamas first 4 years in office:
* Refusal to close US Southern Border to Mexican illegal alien invaders
* No known un-forged records of Place of Birth
* No known un-forged records of University grades
* Benghazi Massacre
* Dereliction of Duty as CIC during Benghazi Massacre
* Cover up of Benghazi Massacre
* Destruction of Seal Team Six
* Cover up of Fast and Furious murder of US Border Agent by Exec. Order
* IRS-Obamacare Commune Death Grip on Wealth and Health
* NSA-Gestapo Death Grip on all citizens communications
* Use Courts against News Media
* Use of Supreme Court to install Un-Constitutional Obamacare Tax
* Destruction of the US Coal Industry
* Refusal to permit XL Pipeline construction
* Trillion Dollar a year Federal Overspending
* Monthly violations of the US Constitution by Obama
* Use of Exec. Orders to bypass Congress
The IRS needs to be brought to heel, otherwise it’s over.
Imagine turning over an unreadable tax return to the IRS.
Ooooooooo! Was the subpoena strongly worded? I bet it was. I bet Lew is just shaking in his boots (out of laughter knowing that the GOPe doesn’t have the balls to do anything).
yawn...it’s Issa. Wake me up if he actually does anything...
Totally squandered the opportunity by being a “get-along” wuss. Lew will ignore the subpoena, the media will condemn Republicans, and little more will come from it.
We’ll need someone with balls like Putin in order to every bring the IRS to account. Both sides love spending other peoples money way too much...
I would add, the destruction of the America’s free market Capitalism.
“Earlier this week the IRS turned over thousands of pages most of them completely unreadable to the Oversight Committee.”
They are laughing at the committee. Thats just how cocky bammer and the IRRS is.
The likes of Obey are a travesty for this constitutional republic. Issa is doing a great job but its time for him to get pissed off !...and bring this house down.
Lew is so slimy that will have to nail him to a chair!

Chairman Issa displayed the totally black pages that the crooks at Treasury had handed to the oversight committee. Such arrogance should be treated as the crime it is and someone should be frog-marched to jail.
When is that arrogant b*t*ch Lois Lerner being summoned back to testify?
We need a special prosecutor to investigate this.
And when will he hold Holder? Why isn’t he in jail?
Such arrogance should be treated as the crime it is and someone should be frog-marched to jail.
Nobody is going to jail. The GOP Leadership doesn’t want the political brawl that would be required to heel these rampaging marxists. We are getting the same old tip toe through the tulips gum flapping that we got from 2010-2012. Boehner, Ryan, Cantor and the rest of the stooges will keep it up until next Nov. No fight in them at all.
All this is a big joke. Worthless, without true action.
If you don’t know by now, when are ever gonna know?
So I’ll tell you. Issa, or any member of Congress or any committee of Congress, cannot arrest and jail ANYONE.
A person can be put in jail for lying to Congess while under oath. But the Congress itself cannot do that. Only the Dept. of Justice can put somebody in jail for lying to Congress.
So, if you think HOLDER is gonna put HOLDER in jail, well, there’s no hope you’ll ever “get it”.
So you think Holder is gonna frog
march HIMSELF to jail?
Kind like Bugs Bunny hitting a fly ball then running to the outfield and catching it?
