BOMBSHELL REPORT!! Elijah Cummings Heavily Involved in IRS Scandal…Could Face Prosecution
Elijah Cummings has been trying to kill the investigation into the IRS scandal, making ridiculous claims and calling it a witch hunt. Well, it caught a big witch by the name of Elijah Cummings. Emails that have been released, shows that Cummings was eyeball deep in the scandal, asking for and receiving information on the conservative group, True the Vote, from Lois Lerner. His office illegally received confidential tax records from the group. Cummings is denying his involvement, despite his email asking for the same information that he received.
On Wednesday, committee chairman , Rep Darrel Issa accused Cummings of being complicit in the IRS targeting of conservative groups. In an email turned over to the House Oversight Committee, Cummings asked for dirt from the IRS (which is a felony since taxpayer information is private) on True the Vote. Within days of that email, Lerner sent out a questionnaire to True the Vote asking them all sorts of private questions. Days after receiving those answers, Lerner sent the information to Elijah Cummings.
Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of True the Vote, has testified to Congress that her group was targeted by the IRS and the emails fit into the timeline perfectly. True the Vote spent years trying to get their tax exempt status approved. Recently we learned that despite the cries from the liberals that their groups were targeted too, agents at the IRS testified under oath that all progressive applications were approved.
For his part, Cummings appears to have committed a felony in asking the IRS for confidential information, receiving that same information and is also guilty od not recusing himself from the investigation because of conflict of interest. I am not naive enough to believe Cummings will have to answer for his crimes, but it certainly blows a huge hole into the liberal argument that the IRS scandal is a fake scandal.
True the Vote has accumulated a lot of hate from liberals for their stance that the dead must be purged from the voting registry and that all voters must present IDs in order to stop voter fraud. Cummings involvement did not come out until last week, when the committee gained access to the emails.
Cummings’ email to the IRS demanded information identical to that which the IRS demanded from True the Vote and that same information was then shared with Cummings’ office. Issa concludes:
“The IRS and the Oversight Minority made numerous requests for virtually identical information from True the Vote, raising concerns that the IRS improperly shared protected taxpayer information with Rep Cummings’ staff.”
Evidence shows that Lerner was personally involved in gathering the information for Cummings. She asked Holly Pas if they had the information yet and when Pas said no, Lerner instructed her to find out the very next day.
As for Catherine Engelbrecht, the founder of true the vote, the IRS was not the only government entity sicced on her by the Obama regime. The the FBI; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the Occupational Health and Safety Administration; and the Texas Commission on Environment Quality – an partner organization of the federal Environmental Protection Agency, all took turns in making her life a living hell.
meanwhile, Obama and Holder appointed a longtime democratic and Obama donor to investigate wrongdoing by the IRS. *chuckle*
