The DOJ Cover-up with the IRS: Caught by Doc Thompson and Judicial Watch

There is likely more to the sudden appearance of the CIA report regarding the liberal senate’s disapproval of waterboarding occurrences during the Bush Administration. At the same time the $40 million dollar report was produced, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber was testifying about his role of deceit in fooling Americans into accepting the takeover of the health care industry by hidden tax methods in front of congress—which somehow mysteriously took a back seat to the waterboarding information—even on Fox News. The Gruber story was the second story on Fox as the waterboard story was the primary. But even deeper was the revelation that the Department of Justice who is supposed to investigating the IRS targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status was forced against their will to reveal a few pages of internal DOJ documents that prove Lois Lerner was talking to officials about prosecuting tax-exempt entities criminally. Only under a lawsuit by Judicial Watch v. the Department of Justice, N. 14-cv-01239 did the DOJ hand over two of their withheld pages showing many redacted emails. There was only one news source that covered the story that I know of as the information hit—and that was my friend Doc Thompson, at The Blaze Radio Network. Below are the contents of that powerful radio show which should be listened to from beginning to end.

Documents from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the IRS show that Ms. Lerner asked the DOJ whether tax-exempt entities could be criminally prosecuted. This May 8, 2013 email by Ms. Lerner went to Nikole C. Flax, Chief of Staff to Acting IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller, who would later be fired by President Obama:

“I got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ … He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s [sic] could talk to about Sen. Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement cases about applicants who “lied” on their 1024s–saying they weren’t planning on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible political expenditures. DOJ is feeling like it needs to respond, but want to talk to the right folks at IRS to see whether there are impediments from our side and what, if any damage this might do to IRS programs. I told him that sounded like we might need several folks from IRS…”

DOJ’s Mr. Pilger admitted that DOJ officials met Ms. Lerner in October 2010. Moreover, according to congressional investigators, a Lerner email from October 5, 2010 shows the IRS sent the FBI and DOJ a “1.1 million page database of information from 501(c)(4) tax exempt organizations” that contained confidential taxpayer information.

So there you have it, the DOJ who is supposed to be investigating this criminal activity was involved—intimately. Lois Lerner stepped way out of her position at the IRS to act as an activist to prosecute those in political opposition to the big government views of the Obama administration. Using the IRS and DOJ as a personal weapon against political opponents and a labor union president who worked directly with Barack Obama, the IRS launched an attack against the American people using coercion in any means they could get by with under the law—or the DOJ’s interpretation of the law—to destroy their political rivals.

Doc Thompson broke down the entire story with his partner Skip LaCombe. The story is out, the proof is there, and prosecutions should happen immediately. Yet, the media caught in their complacency, and just about every level of the federal government has been caught red-handed and nobody wants to deal with the embarrassment of the public ridicule which should follow if there was any justice in the world. Instead the cover-up continues leaving only a few radio outlets and typical conservative journalists to report the matter to a public consumed over waterboarding ten years ago and what Christmas presents they have yet to purchase a week away from the end of the 2014 year.

This story is far larger than Watergate and involves many, many more people. Likely, if the same standards of Watergate were held today, a large part of Washington D.C. would have to throw themselves on the sword and resign. It is the biggest story of the year, but not even Fox covered it—which should tell everything.

The proof is there, the emails exist and the paper trail is conclusive even with mountains of evidence still ready to be uncovered. Even with the danger of bringing up a story over ten years old regarding waterboarding during the Bush presidency we are now told that we should not look further at the Benghazi tragedy because it was too far removed in the past—a whole three years ago during a presidential run that could have knocked Obama out of the election if the story had not been contained with sheer lies. But worse even than that story is that the DOJ directly worked with the IRS and the White House to bring down political rivals using their tax-exempt status to hold them back and encumber them with paperwork and a silent shrill of bureaucratic terrorism to stall their efforts. I know of that work first hand through the Liberty Township Tea Party. I had to help with the paperwork because some of my videos came under scrutiny by the IRS in their investigation of the Liberty Township Tea Part and more specifically, Justine Binik-Thomas. CLICK HERE FOR REVIEW. Yes, I was at the center of that storm and I’m proud of it. But it was my friends there who suffered the most—they had to waste hours of their time filling out paperwork to hold off the IRS attempts to halt their progress as an education oriented organization designed to produce a more alert voting population. In the world of the criminals running things at the White House, DOJ, and the IRS, being an educated voter is a very dangerous thing and that is what they targeted to cover the tracks of their crimes.

It is not an issue for dispute any longer. The proof is there, the time-line is complete. Doc Thompson laid out the entire case, and there are documents to prove the accusations. The DOJ is the only real investigative body capable of prosecution on this issue, and they are directly involved—so who goes to jail, who resigns from office, and who carries out justice in this case? Nobody. It gets swept under the rug and forgotten about until finally ten years from now, just as Democrats have thrown the Bush administration under the bus yet again trying to deflect attention away from their vile actions with public sympathy toward waterboarding that they will finally run out of hiding places over this IRS debacle. Because it’s not going to go away. People like Doc, and I will never let it die. So they can run—but they can’t hide. Eventually, they will peek around the corner of their hiding places and see that justice is before them—and they will have no other option but to accept it. Eric Holder, Barack Obama, Lois Lerner and all those like her involved in this scandal will have to deal with that justice for the rest of their lives. Because even with all the proof that there currently is, it is just the tip of the iceberg, and the American people will be uncovering that evidence for decades. And with each new introduction the anger will only increase and the only institution truly at blame will be the DOJ for its actions in participating in the scandal—and its active role in the cover-up.
