Skip to comments.IRS: Mistakes Were Made
Posted on 04/13/2015 5:19:07 PM PDT by Nachum
Judicial Watch has just released a new batch of documents forced out of the IRS that show the Obama administrations scandalous misuse of the IRS to target Tea Party and other conservatives goes far deeper than realized.
Included in the new batch of documents is a February 2012 email from Lois Lerner, who was then head of the IRS Exempt Organizations Branch, asking that a special program be set up to put together some training points to help [IRS staffers] understand the potential pitfalls of revealing too much information to Congress. Amid the hundreds of released pages, Judicial Watch also found a remarkable Lerner email from 2013 in which she says she is willing to take the blame for not having provided sufficient direction to her underlings on how best to investigate the targeted groups, and then concedes that she understands why the IRS criteria leading to targeting of Tea Party groups and other opponents of President Obama might raise questions.
In May 2013, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) released an audit revealing the IRS had used inappropriate criteria to identify potential political cases. Early in Calendar Year 2010, TIGTA wrote, the IRS began using inappropriate criteria to identify organizations applying for tax-exempt status to (e.g., lists of past and future donors). The illegal IRS reviews continued for more than 18 months and, TIGTA reported, delayed processing of targeted groups applications preparing for the 2012 presidential election.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
They weren’t mistakes, they were felonies.
Continual “mistakes” in the Obama Administration and its agencies. What’s new?
Yet no charges have been preferred and no one is in jail.
Mistakes were made starting in about 1913.
If several people don’t go to prison for this another mistake will be made.
Where is Congress in this investigation? Darrell Issaa? Why does it take Judicial Watch to get this out?
All the wrong doing that has been done to people means little when the wrongdoers aren’t punished.
I am beyond disgust.
Someone like Hillary should never be allowed to run for President. But she is running in spite of her record of wrongdoing.
I really don’t give a crap anymore.
Is that how even the minutest inaccuracy would be treated on your tax return?
These people should be hanged for treason, starting with Lerner and Koskonen and the criminals that gave the orders.
It’s the only thing at this point that will get them in line.
Bingo! The first camel nose under the tent.
"Now that the Ambassador is raped and dead
and our arms transfer to al Qaeda and murder covered up,
it is time to get the IRS to go after conservatives
... and then get our Issa and Cummings to cover it up."
I wish Ted Cruz would make a campaign pledge to re-open the Lois Lerner investigation if he is elected. The statute of limitations will not have run out in 2017.
The big one was getting caught.

Great pic of Combover Carl....
Yes mistakes were made, actually they believe they only made one mistake...........they got caught!
Someone should ask Obama about his ‘smidgen’ comment. ROTFLMAO! Sometimes I even kill myself!
When they shift into passive voice you know they’re trying to spin their way out of responsibility.
