IRS must say if White House sought taxpayers’ information: Judge

by Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times -  |  published on August 29, 2015

A federal judge Friday ordered the IRS to turn over the records of any requests from the White House seeking taxpayers’ private information from the tax agency, delivering a victory to a group that for two years has been trying to pry the data loose.

It’s not clear that there were any such requests — but Judge Amy Berman Jackson said the IRS cannot just refuse to say so by citing taxpayer confidentiality laws, known as section 6103 of the tax code.

    I am sure the IRS will come up with the “my dog ate my homework ” excuse.

    This is what we need, judges to get this racist Muslim under control, instead of the other way around.

    Typical…. we are giving the Iranians 24 days and they are going to get to inspect their own stock pile, so why wouldn’t we give this administration 4 years to get its stuff together. Oh me. What a world. Seriously Judge! Little to late. And our congress….. cowards. All of them.

    Took this judge long enough to come around in this investigation. Too bad that the Infernal Revenue Service has had so long to destroy and/or hide the records! One has but to look at the crooks running that show and who they are working for! Lerner is on an extended (well paid) vacation at our expense when she should be in Leavenworth! This hunt for records will go on indefinitely without useful results and the people who should have gone to jail will die of old age first!

    See? IRS will have to find some other excuse to not follow the law, but they’ll still have all those standard “executive excuses to ignore the Constitution”.
