The “Secret Research Project” – Why Did The IRS Give The DOJ Twenty-One CD ROM’s?…

Well I don't know if you remember Lois Lerner and the targeting of conservative groups but here is an excellent article on the subject that goes a long way to explaining what we have seen in the past and what we are seeing know.

In October 2015 the DOJ announced it was dropping the investigation into the IRS, Lois Lerner, and the unlawful sharing of taxpayer data in the IRS targeting investigation surrounding True The Vote et al.

keep in mind this is referring to the corrupt DOJ before Trump started cleaning house.

As a direct consequence of the DOJ decision, congressional inquiry into the IRS targeting matter seemingly dropped from the radar.

However, if you draw a line from the original intent of the entire enterprise, the post-2010 mid-term “shellacking”/”secret research project“, forward to the 2016 election cycle an interested observer might still be left asking:

“why did the IRS, through Lois Lerner, deliver the 1+ million pages of tax filings, to include the entire donor list of Tea Party and patriot groups, through 21 CD-ROMs and not by electronic data transfer. Information that was specifically sent to Eric Holder and the U.S. Department of Justice”?

in typical obama fashion,

The Obama Team response to the 2010 Shellacking was to use the Dept. of Justice (AG Eric Holder) to weaponize the IRS and go after groups -like Tea Party Groups- organized under the financial umbrella of 501(c)(4) donation structuring.


The head of IRS tax exempt division, Louis Lerner, plead the Fifth.
Obama’s Chief of Staff Jack Lew was made Treasury Secretary (IRS is sub division of Treasury Dept.) where he was/is able to continue hiding information.
And Eric Holder constructed a team of DOJ lawyers to isolate, hide and manipulate the trail of evidence within the DOJ.

and don't forget mad Maxine said this,

It is clear to anyone with marginal reasoning skills who the real criminals are.

(hint) it isn't Trump

why secret?

The American Center for Law and Justice put it thusly: We know the IRS unconstitutionally targeted conservative groups. We know they illegally demanded, obtained, and held the donor lists of these conservative organizations. Now we learn that in 2012, the height of the targeting, the IRS was involved in a “secret research project” with this confidential, illegally obtained donor information.

If you wonder why the entire corrupt DC political class is openly in opposition to candidate Donald J Trump…. well,…

I know why.

in case you are skeptical of the Conservative Treehouse here are a couple of other links to add to the Mix,

Hat tip to QueenofSwords

Investigation A July 22, 2015 memo by Inspector General Patrick McFarland said that OPM's Chief Information Officer Donna Seymour was slowing her investigation into the breach, leading him to wonder whether or not she was acting in good faith. He did not raise any specific claims of misconduct, but he did say that her office was fostering an "atmosphere of mistrust" by giving him "incorrect or misleading" information.[31] On Monday 22 February 2016, CIO Donna Seymour resigned, just two days before she was scheduled to testify before a House panel that is continuing to investigate the data breach.[32]

why Cds and not USB

I can only guess nowadays the only reason to burn a CD is you want to be able to permanataly destroy data fast it's fairly hard to recover data from a shattered CD a little time grinding it to the ground and yea it's a done deal

Data burned to CD's is much more difficult to alter vice a USB pen drive. Also various Gov't agencies including large corporations have very strict rules on the use of removable USB media.

This type of thread never garners many responses because the facts are hard to dispute.

I hope everyone sees it and it opens a few peoples eyes.

Here is some more info from the WSJ,

Lois Lerner’s Last Laugh If Congress did its job, nobody would be talking about another special counsel.

This has aggravated the situation we find ourselves in currently,

Not quite two years later, Congress continues to pay the price for letting Ms. Lerner and Mr. Koskinen ride freely into the sunset. Though the IRS and other federal agencies—including the State and Justice Departments, as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation—are now headed by Trump rather than Obama appointees, they continue to spurn congressional oversight demands with near impunity.

Ask yourself this: Is it likely our federal agencies would be so haughty about Congress and its subpoenas if Mr. Koskinen had been impeached?

sad really.

Why? Because they have not yet heard of a thumb drive...
