Issa Subpoenas Holder: Give Us the IRS Documents

May 21, 2014 By Jennifer Burke

No wonder Barack Obama can claim ignorance on nearly every major subject and scandal that has plagued his administration. He has absurdly claimed on numerous occasions, including this week in regards to the VA scandal, that he first learned about the allegations from the news. Never mind that his claim is a blatant lie. Memos reveal that he has known specifically about the VA cooking the books since 2010. But, the fact is, Obama’s buddies at ABC, NBC, and CBS, along with his mouthpieces at MSNBC and CNN, simply don’t cover the major news.

On Tuesday, Darrell Issa revealed that he has subpoenaed the Department of Justice for records that the House Select Committee requested regarding the IRS targeting, harassment, and intimidation of the Tea Party, on April 23, 2014 that have yet to be provided.

    Today I issued a subpoena to the #DOJ for documents previously requested by the Committee on April 23, 2014. http://t.co/j3nPOqe3iC

Newsbusters reports that, as has been typical, ABC, CBS, and NBC have continued their efforts to cover-up the IRS scandal and assist Obama’s Justice Department with its stonewalling by not reporting on this subpoena.

Committee chair Darrell Issa took to Twitter, as reported by Twitchy, to document the Obama administration’s refusal to cooperate with the investigation, revealing that they have even gone so far as to instruct witnesses to not testify.

    The #DOJ subpoena covers docs referring or relating to applications for 501(c)(4) tax-exempt status. #IRStargeting http://t.co/j3nPOqe3iC
    — Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) May 20, 2014


    The subpoena also covers #DOJ docs and communications between Lois G. Lerner and employees of the DOJ. #IRStargeting

    Plus docs and communications referring or relating to the potential prosecution of tax-exempt applicants for statements made on #IRS forms.
    — Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) May 20, 2014


    The letter sent to the #DOJ on April 23 requested that these documents be produced by May 5, 2014. #IRStargeting
    — Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) May 20, 2014


    As of today, the #DOJ has produced no documents in response to this request. #IRStargeting
    — Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) May 20, 2014


    The #DOJ has also obstructed @GOPoversight work during its transcribed interview of Richard Pilger, Director of DOJ Election Crimes Branch.
    — Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) May 20, 2014


    During the interview with Mr. Pilger, a #DOJ lawyer directed him not to answer questions posed by @GOPoversight an astounding 34 times.
    — Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) May 20, 2014


    The #DOJ unilaterally, and without the agreement of the Committee, limited the scope of the interview to Mr. Pilger’s interactions w/ Lerner
    — Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) May 20, 2014


    Among other topics, the #DOJ lawyer refused to allow Mr. Pilger to answer Q’s about convos within DOJ in the wake of Citizens United v. FEC.
    — Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) May 20, 2014


    Also refused to allow Mr. Pilger to answer whether he had communicated with any #IRS official since Lois Lerner’s apology for #IRStargeting.
    — Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) May 20, 2014


    These matters are highly relevant to the @GOPoversight investigation of #IRStargeting.
    — Darrell Issa (@DarrellIssa) May 20, 2014


Maybe Obama believes he can get away with his lie that there’s not a smidgen of corruption because his pals at the network will cover for him and his buddy Elijah Cummings will run interference in an attempt to obstruct the investigation.

And THIS is supposed to be the most transparent administration in history?

To which, if there were any justice left in this country, the House of Representatives should respond! OK! No more IRS!

I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for that however!

That's where I observe there is no opposition party, only a right wing of the Democrat party.

Now I stand by waiting for establishment supporters to tell me how stupid that is.
