Trumpís Justice Department Lets Lois Lerner Off The Hook
Daily Caller ^ | 9/8/2017 | Chuck Ross

The Justice Department says it will not prosecute former IRS executive Lois Lerner for targeting conservative groups during the 2010 and 2012 elections.

In a letter to top Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee, Assistant Attorney General Kevin Brady said that after a careful review of the case, DOJ will not pursue charges against Lerner, who oversaw the IRS division that reviewed tax exempt organizations.

“After this process, the Department determined that reopening the investigation would not be appropriate based on the available evidence,” Boyd wrote Texas Rep. Kevin Brady, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Illinois Rep. Peter Roskam, the chairman of the subcommittee on tax policy.

In April, Brady and Roskam asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to review the Lerner case and to consider whether she should be charged with a crime.

Bureaucracy, the 4th branch of government: Unelected, unaccountable and untouchable, the law be damned! These people are dangerous and enemies of the republic, freedom and liberty.

“Today’s decision does not mean Lois Lerner is innocent. It means the justice system in Washington is deeply flawed,” he added.

Roskam called the DOJ decision “a miscarriage of justice.”

I’m really disappointed in this. Weaponizing the IRS against political opponents is among the most egregious abuses of political power we’ve seen in recent years.

They are hell on wheels against any Middle Class schmuck who makes a mistake on their 1040 Form, though. The rule of law doesn’t apply to government officials.

I know what you are saying. It was done in plain site and under Obama’s orders no doubt which is probably why they didn’t pursue it.

Absolutely correct. You'll find literally TENS of THOUSANDS of Feds that pay no income taxes at all.

Yes, of course it’s still illegal for taxpaying US citizens to jaywalk.

Once again, the Republican party never fails to fail.

At some point the people will have had enough and corruptocrats like Lerner will be swinging from lamp-posts.
