IRS official Lois Lerner

Won't be long until someone starts giving individuals like Lerner and her cronies a dirt nap.



House panel asks DOJ to consider criminal prosecution for Lerner
Published April 09, 2014
·FoxNews.com
A House committee voted Wednesday to formally ask the Justice Department to consider criminal prosecution against ex-IRS official Lois Lerner, the figure at the center of the political targeting scandal.

The House Ways and Means Committee voted 23-14 to send the criminal referral, which accused her of "extreme bias." The vote marked an escalation in Republicans' push to confront Lerner over her role in the agency's controversial practice of singling out conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for extra scrutiny.

"If we don't stand up for the right of the American people, who else will?" committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., said after the vote.

A 14-page letter to Attorney General Eric Holder outlined Republicans' case against the former IRS official, saying she "may have violated multiple criminal statutes."

The letter accused Lerner of using her position to improperly target conservative groups and deny their constitutional rights; of impeding an inspector general investigation by giving misleading statements; and of risking the disclosure of confidential taxpayer information.

"This investigation has uncovered serious, unprecedented actions taken by Lois Lerner that deprived conservative groups of their rights under the Constitution," Camp said in a statement. "Today's action highlights specific wrongdoing for the Department of Justice to pursue. DOJ has a responsibility to act, and Lois Lerner must be held accountable."

Unfortunately, the stooge Holder won't do jack-squat about any of this. he'll run the clock out claiming it is "already being investigated".

It may be getting time to "feed the hogs".

Give her immunity and call her to a hearing so she has to spill her guts...the only way to get any truth or resolution.

DoJ investigating an IRS official at Congress' behest.

Concur.

Let her talk, ask questions, and charge her with perjury of anything that she gets wrong.

Go for the next level up, if not two levels. Keep at it till you reach the top, ala Nixon.

Holder will do nothing because he and the DOJ would be implicated along with a parade of others. You know the legalities of the IRS actions were explored and then just ignored.

1st sentence Post#1, perhaps I took it a little to literal? It has been a long day and much of it was spent sourcing tools for our new Pioneer Kits. Using a good tool to do the work is a thing of beauty.

Golf1- Little piece of advice for you: When a QP ask you a question, just answer it. We don't really care about your excuses. That will be especially prudent if the QPs screen name is in green

You do have to admit - they appear to be nice shovels. And given where a real investigation (highly unlikely) proceeding along the immunity/perjury lines TR favors (me too!) could go; she really might get "Fostered".

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

Not to speak for someone, but I took it to mean that Ms. Learner has dug herself quite a hole, and seems to be accelerating her efforts, thus necessitating additional shovels.

Or possibly death from self inflected nail gun injuries or jumping from .GOV buildings and monuments.
