On this site, members are free to choose articles they wish, and for whatever their reasons...

...for other members to chastise them for doing so is an insult to the forum concept...
Oh brother. Another non partisan admonishment.

OK, How about this. Judicial watch is a lying piece of shlt organization who calls Obama a Muslim. Using them as a source of anything is stupid and if I have to point out what a piece of shlt organization they are it's because some people don't care about facts as much as they do partisanship.

Perhaps you could pull up a quote where Judicial Watch called obama a muslim.

Also, they are a watchdog group and have gone after republicans as well. They do pretty darn good in court and I highly doubt they are stupid. Of course if you can prove they are please go ahead and do so.

While you're foaming at the mouth, attacking the source, and trying to distract us with BS, there's an actual f*cking quote from the judge stating exactly what the article title says.

Jesus f*cking Christ you're a predictable one-trick pony. Sh*t gets old, bro. Try debating for once in your life instead of going through your partisan routine we see coming a mile away.

Since you obviously huffed a lot of glue as a child I'll break it down for you with bold and colorful highlights. Put the tube of Elmer's down and pay attention.

Article title - Federal Judge Threatens To Hold IRS Commissioner, DOJ Lawyers in Contempt of Court

Quote:
Judicial Watch announced that U.S District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan today threatened to hold the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service and Justice Department attorneys in contempt of court after the IRS failed to produce status reports and newly recovered emails of Lois Lerner, former director of the Exempt Organizations Unit of the IRS, as he had ordered on July 1, 2015.

During the a status hearing today, Sullivan warned that the failure to follow his order was serious and the IRS and Justice Department’s excuses for not following his July 1 order were “indefensible, ridiculous, and absurd.” He asked the IRS’ Justice Department lawyer Geoffrey Klimas, “Why didn’t the IRS comply” with his court order and “why shouldn’t the Court hold the Commissioner of the IRS in contempt.” Judge Sullivan referenced his contempt findings against Justice Department prosecutors in the prosecution of late Senator Ted Stevens (R-AK) and reminded the Justice Department attorney he had the ability to detain him for contempt. Warning he would tolerate no further disregard of his orders, Judge Sullivan said, “I will haul into court the IRS Commissioner to hold him personally into contempt.”

After the hearing, Judge Sullivan issued the following “minute order”:

At the July 29, 2015 status hearing, the Government agreed that the Court’s July 1, 2015 oral order from the bench was clear and enforceable. Nonetheless, the Government reasoned it inappropriate to file a motion for reconsideration until a written order was issued. As expressed at the hearing, the Government’s reasoning is nonsensical. Officers of the Court who fail to comply with Court orders will be held in contempt. Also, in the event of non-compliance with future Court orders, the Commissioner of the IRS and others shall be directed to show cause as to why they should not be held in contempt of Court. The Court’s July 1, 2015 ruling from the bench stands: (1) the Government shall produce relevant documents every Monday; (2) the Government’s document production shall be accompanied by a status report that indicates (a) whether TIGTA has turned over any new documents to the IRS, (b) if so, the number of documents, and (c) a timeframe for the IRSs production of those documents. Signed by Judge Emmet G. Sullivan on July 29, 2015.


At a July 1, 2015, status conference, Sullivan ordered the IRS to begin producing, every week, the nearly 1,800 newly recovered Lerner emails responsive to Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Despite the court order, the IRS did not produce any Lerner emails until July 15. The IRS also failed to provide Judicial Watch a status report of the Lerner email production issues, as also ordered by Sullivan. Last week, Judge Sullivan ordered sua sponte the parties to appear for a status hearing today after Judicial Watch raised concerns about the IRS’ failure to comply with his orders to release the newly discovered Lerner emails and status updates on its production of previously “missing” documents.

The developments come in Judicial Watch’s FOIA lawsuit seeking documents about the Obama IRS’ targeting and harassment of Tea Party and conservative opponents of President Obama (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:13-cv-01559)). Judicial Watch’s litigation forced the IRS first to admit that Lerner’s emails were supposedly missing and, then, that the emails were on IRS’ back-up systems.

Yesterday, Judicial Watch released the first batch believed to be newly recovered emails of Lerner. The new documents show that Lerner and other top officials in the IRS, including soon-to-be Acting IRS Commissioner Steve Miller, closely monitored and approved the controversial handling of tax-exempt applications by Tea Party organizations. The documents also show that at least one group received an inquiry from the IRS in order to buy time and keep the organization from contacting Congress.

“In a dramatic court hearing today, Judge Sullivan made it clear he would personally hold accountable the IRS Commissioner Koskinen and Justice Department attorneys for any further contempt of his court orders in Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The missing and-then-not missing Lois Lerner saga is a stark example of the Obama administration’s contempt for a federal court and the rule of law. That Obama administration officials would risk jail rather than disclose these Lerner documents shows that the IRS scandal has just gotten a whole lot worse.”
There ya go. Damn, bro, explaining this sh*t to you is harder than teaching Mandarin Chinese to homeless blind mute Down Syndrome kids living in the alley behind my house.

Move goal posts much?

By your logic obama is a socialist then since he once had ties to a socialist group.

No, you spin a partisan fantasy to try to excuse a program of abuse Lois Lerner apologized for conducting. If she is just a hard working bureaucrat trying to do her job why refuse to testify before Congress after her admitted misconduct? Why the massive fraud of widespread server failure and delay after delay by the IRS in releasing the emails?
