The IRS Scandal, Day 786

IRS Logo 2Wall Street Journal, Lois Lerner for President:

[G]et a load of this report from

Catherine Duval, the attorney in charge of the Internal Revenue Service’s email production to Congress, has changed jobs: She now manages the State Department’s email production to Congress, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) told a hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday, June 25.

Meanwhile, members of the Oversight Committee last week accused the IRS of destroying some of Lois Lerner’s emails despite a subpoena and an order to preserve them.

“There was a preservation order in place, there’s a subpoena in place, they’ve never complied with it; we’ve had testimony from the IRS commissioner that we would get all this only to find out they’ve been degaussing these tapes and they destroyed evidence,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) at the June 25 hearing.

Which gives us an idea: Why doesn’t Lois Lerner jump into the race for the Democratic presidential nomination? At least she believes in something.

There goes Publius again, standing up for tyranny and oppression.

So what happened to

A coincidence requires that certain facts, established has having occurred, bear some kind of relationship to each other. In the case of both the IRS and State Dept. scandals, a very large number of "facts" are either assumptions, exaggerations, or fabrications by Mr. Wodun, Fox News, Mr. Wood, and other right-wing adherents. For example, what hard drives and computers have gone missing at State? As for criminality, 20-20 hindsight from the TIGTA report published in this blog on July 7, 2015 found none. Period.

I'm sure Publius Novus will tell us it's just a coincidence.

Thank you for your continued work in archiving the ongoing criminality of the IRS. Some day it will be a landmark of what a rogue government looks like.

What are the odds hard drives and computers will go missing at the State dept too? 100% as it already happened.
