Bombshell! House Republicans Prove Democrats Working with IRS to Cover-Up Corruption

Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) has, at times, seemed to be on a Quixotic quest to find out what really happened at the IRS that created a culture which would encourage senior officials to persecute Americans, simply for being conservative. But over the last year or so, Congressman Issa has been able to dig up enough evidence to reasonably prove that there was more going on at the IRS than the government was leading us to believe. Their original story that it was just a “couple of bad eggs” in the Cincinatti office fell apart quickly as the malfeasance quite obviously climbed at least as high as 2nd in command Lois Lerner.

Since that revelation, the investigation has been stonewalled at every turn, with dozens of government workers claiming to have lost emails and had hard drives crash – stories which fly in the face of credulity and stretch the understanding of even the most sympathetic of onlookers. The worst part is that these computer problems seem contained to the people under investigation, and it seems that NONE OF THEM followed protocol for their computer problems (the government has a very intricate set of plans for handling such issues).

Now comes some new, not-so-shocking information giving us more evidence of Democrat efforts to cover up the IRS’ crimes.

It seems that the very people at the Justice Department who should have been investigating and uncovering the evils at the IRS were working hand-in-hand with Democrat politicians to hinder Republican efforts to investigate.

Apparently last Friday, September 5th, an aide to Attorney General Eric Holder placed a call to Congressman Issa believing he was actually contacting Issa’s Democrat counterpart, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD). The mistake was not immediately apparent to either side of the phone call, until the aide, one Brian Fallon, made a request to leak some documents related to the IRS investigation to the media “before the majority” (House Republicans) could share the documents.

Basically, the Justice Department had some damning paperwork that would be more evidence of IRS malfeasance. They wanted to get their version of the story out there before Republicans could, so they wanted to see if Rep, Cummings and his office could help them get it to a few key reporters. What this means is that the highest ranking Democrat involved in investigating the IRS was actually helping cover up their crimes!

funnelingIt would be like a man getting arrested for murder, then a group of the officers involved in the investigation deliberately acting to hide, taint or obfuscate evidence!

Congressman Issa is understandably upset.

He wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder to register his dismay with the situation.

“It strains credulity to believe that the Department would seek to begin to improve relations via a telephone call between two individuals who had never spoken to each other before at 5:01pm on a Friday afternoon at the end of a District Work Period in the waning days of the 113th Congress,” Issa wrote.

Issa said he is “disturbed” by the “apparently longstanding collaboration between the Obama administration and Ranking Member Cummings’ staff to obfuscate and prejudice the Committee’s work through under-the-table coordination.”

Here’s the letter in full:

It will be interesting to see how the Democrats and the media spin this in their ever- growing efforts to absolve President Obama and the Democrat Party (as well as the IRS) from any culpability.
