The Daily Caller reports on an email that shows collusion between disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner and the US Treasury Department on the subject of non-profit groups. The email proves that the IRS was seeking an “off-plan” way to curb those groups’ activities ahead of the 2012 election. And by “off-plan,” they meant in a way that would not show up in federal law or be subject to any review.

The Obama administration’s Treasury Department and former IRS official Lois Lerner conspired to draft new 501(c)(4) regulations to restrict the activity of conservative groups in a way that would not be disclosed publicly, according to the House Committee on Ways and Means.

The Treasury Department and Lerner started devising the new rules “off-plan,” meaning that their plans would not be published on the public schedule. They planned the new rules in 2012, while the IRS targeting of conservative groups was in full swing, and not after the scandal broke in order to clarify regulations as the administration has suggested.

The rules place would place much more stringent controls on what would be considered political activity by the IRS, effectively limiting the standard practices of a wide array of non-profit groups.

Read the rest. The FBI has yet to interview anyone from the targeted groups, yet it has dismissed the scandal and President Obama has gone from saying that it outraged him to saying that it’s nothing. He blames Fox for having the audacity (of hope!) to report on his scandals.

We have a gangster government that conspired to abuse citizens and is now actively covering that fact up, and it is attacking media that do their job and report on all this.

The Obama regime has consistently lied to the American People. But now expects us to take it's word that there was no wrong-doing or corruption involved in the IRS abuse of American citizens.

I no longer believe a word the Obama regime utters. There is no question the abuse took place, which means someone broke the law. I want to know why no one is being punished for that.

I am tired of the constant scandal "outrage".

It lies squarely on the Republicans that "Disgraced official Lois Lerner" is not "convict Lois Lerner".

Ditto for Holder, Clinton and the NSA head that lied before congress.

Get back to me when the GOP actually does something about it besides talk and kick the can down the road.
