Obama Admits Illegally Transferring Tax Records in Emails From the IRS
Barack Obama has decided not to turn over the emails that detail the transfer of IRS information on private citizens and groups from the agency to the White House. Those transfers are illegal. The existence of these emails were the result of a FOIA request filed by Cause of Action. The documents were gathered by the Inspector General while investigating the accusation that tax information was illegally transferred by Lois Lerner to Obama adviser, Jeanne Lambrew.
The documents should have been transferred to Cause of Action by the deadline of December 1st. They failed to do and said they would need two weeks to shred any incriminating documents before they turned the rest over. Here is the letter they sent to Cause of Action:
My client wants to know if you would consent to a motion pushing back (in part) TIGTA’s response date by two weeks to December 15, 2014. The agency has located 2,500 potentially responsive documents and anticipates being able to finish processing 2,000 of these pages by the December 1 date. It needs the additional two weeks to deal with the last 500 pages to determine if they are responsive and make any necessary withholdings. We would therefore like to ask the court to permit the agency to issue a response (including production) on December 1 as to any documents it has completed processing by that date, and do the same as to the remaining documents by December 15. I note that the court’s remand was for a “determin[ation],” which the D.C. Circuit has recently explained can precede actual production by “days or a few weeks,” but we would prefer to simply agree on a date for turning over any of the remaining 500 documents that may be responsive.
The White House has now backtracked from that position and have now been seized by the Head of the U.S. Department of the Treasury and former Obama chief of staff, Jack Lew. The reason he is giving for not releasing the emails is that…..now get this….they contain secret taxpayer information. Well, duh! That is the entire reason for getting the emails. But here’s the thing. By refusing to turn the emails over because they contain confidential taxpayer information is actually an admission of guilt. Think about it. To claim privilege under the guise of protecting taxpayer information contained in the emails, the law had to be broken.
The emails in question are part of the 30,000 emails a federal judge ordered the White House to release from Lerner’s emails. Now, I wonder where the Inspector General got his copies from considering the fact the White House claimed they were all lost. Low information voters won’t pick up on that.
You may have also observed that the results of the Inspector General was never released either. I wonder why.
