Trey Gowdy as prosecutor is a thing of beauty as he tears reptilian IRS Commissioner John Koskinen to shreds. (And what’s with the smug Poindexter in the mint green suit behind Koskinen?)

BTW, the IRS wants to be rewarded with more money for targeting Tea Party groups and then destroying the evidence, and Democrats agree, the IRS should have an even larger budget. If Republicans had even two functioning brain cells, they would make national campaign ads informing voters how Democrats want to raise the IRS’s budget.

Specifically, the IRS wants an additional $30 Million on top of its already bloated $1.8 Billion IT budget. The IRS spent $89 Million paying themselves bonuses last year.

  1. Trey Gowdy as prosecutor is a thing of beauty as he tears reptilian IRS Commissioner John Koskinen to shreds. (And don’t you just want to punch the smug Poindexter in the mint green suit behind Koskinen in the face?)

    Yes. And yes.

    Actually, there is something about Poindexter that warrants something else – but in the name of decorum I will refrain from identifying what it is. Suffice to say it involves a sling and a gag.

    And yes, I went there.

  4. Do you think he just really bad wanted to stand up and use his best wing song voice from childhood and shout “Liar, liar pants on fire!”

    I know I do.

    One thing is clear-Gowdy has thought about the criminal law in light of what happened the IRS is just trying to cover it up and protect the White House.

  5. Thank you, Trey Gowdy. He has been saying everything I’ve been thinking through all of this scandals. When I heard that Lois Lerner was going to plead the fifth, I thought, Wait, you can’t claim that you have done nothing wrong and then plead the fifth when there is no trial, no indictment, no hint that there is even a criminal investigation against you. The fifth amendment only protects you from self-incrimination when there is such investigation. In other words, you can’t use the fifth to keep from providing evidence against someone else, or against your boss. If you plead the fifth, you can infer that the evidence is not in your favor. You won’t know what that evidence is, but you can assume it is damning.

    Then, Trey Gowdy speaks up and says that there mere fact that she chose to make a statement before the panel was a waiver of her fifth amendment right. In other words, you can’t get on the witness stand, profess your innocence to the jury, then plead the fifth when the prosecutor’s time for cross examination comes. And I’m going, YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!!

    Now, he its the nail on the head from a prosecutorial viewpoint, and says, “Sorry, when you lose vital evidence, we can infer that that evidence was damning.” He even brought up the fact that in tax court, the inability to bring in evidence that you don’t owe the tax can be inferred to mean that you actually do.

    I want this man in charge of something. He knows the law better than MOST of these clowns.

  6. Wow. Trey Gowdy wiped the smile off his face!

    He may have left “law” 45 years ago, but spoliation is a pretty basic topic he should have remembered after all this time.

  7. Yes, this is a criminal enterprise being waged by this administration and the IRS for certain.

    Thing is, the damage is already done. My local Tea Party is having trouble getting meeting space because Religious orgs, non-profit orgs, not-for-profit orgs that have auditorium space available to us in the past are afraid to rent space for meetings.

  8. Damn!

    I like the way Rep. Gowdy uses ‘Commissioner’ in the diminutive. Ass, meet boot.
