Republicans just don't know how to street fight these hard core communists.

I disagree. They know how to fight the Democrats and Commies. It's the media they don't know how to fight.

#20: Does Leavenworth have a Ladies Department?

After the next presidential election, it will. Besides, GITMO will be emptied by Obama, and after 2016, filled by Obama (and company).

I think Hillary would look good in an Orange Jumpsuit, as she jumped out of a plane (without a parachute). Better to see where she impacts.

Pelosi looks like she’s orange so we save some money by just painting stripes on her. Is Alcatraz in her District?

Boxer: Find a nice padded cell for her, anywhere. I hear the weather is nice in Mongolia.

Holder: He already has his stripe - YELLOW.

And the list could go on, for miles.

Not so sure they can sue her civilly, personally vs. in her official role @ IRS.

There is case law that says it can never be the duty of a public official to commit a crime. She can be sued civilly.

But wouldn’t they have to prove she committed a crime first? And who expects this DOJ to do that?

I wouldn’t mind seeing Holder join John Mitchell’s elite club of AG’s who’ve gone to the slammer.

Her pardon is already written out.

Obama might be able to pardon her for crimes, but he can't stop Congress from holding her for contempt or perjury.

[But now National Review has uncovered documentation proving Lerner was up to her neck in the operation, ]

Oooh Perjury, that’s gonna leave a few stretch-marks on her smug/pasty canvas.

A conviction is not required before suing someone civilly. However, if someone is convicted of a crime and there is also a civil cause of action, the plaintiff wins automatically with only damages to be determined.

‘She’s an evil ho.

She needs to do some seriously hard time as a warning to other civil servants.

Exactly. I’m getting tired of all of these apologies and paid administrative leaves for these crooks. She needs to be in jail.

As a practical matter, how far do you think the plaintiff(s) would get without a criminal conviction? I can think of OJ, but not many other instances. In that case, too, it was a handy change of venue. Regrettably, venue more than the law determines the verdict. IMAGINE suing an Obama Administration official in the DC federal court. ha!

As a practical matter, if she is sued, the plaintiffs would be entitled to discovery of hundreds if not thousands of pages of documents.

Failure to produce them would be a legal admission that what they are alleged to include would be accepted as facts by any court.

That upraised chin pose tells it all.

When she was testifying it reminded me of Hillary...

All smug, reading from a script, in that how dare you perceive me to be guilty of anything...

Who’s the guy behind her right ear? I swear he’s there every time a lefty testifies before Congress. (or is it that they all look alike?)

It was a UNION OFFICIAL of the union that IRS employees belong to, named Colleen Kelly, who met with Obama the day before the targeting began. That’s not an IRS employee, that’s a union thug of the IRS union. But how conveeeeeenient...

I think, in Lerner’s case, it’s just the smugness of having had power over others.

1). Being in her position, everyone hates you, but kisses your butt out of fear.

2). Since it is obvious, you end up hating their hypocrisy.

3). Once on top, you realize that any ‘personal anxiety’ can be quieted by using your power over others.

4). When you see everyone ABOVE YOU doing the same thing, you use your power to go after everyone you don’t like or who gets in your way.

We all dream in our wildest and most wonderful dreams of not just impeachment in the House (which could certainly happen with a simple majority, like with Clinton), and removal from office in the Senate, but to get 67 votes (2/3rds of the members present as required by the Constitution) in this Democrat senate is an absolute impossibility no matter what he does.

Like they did Sarah? Only those were frivolous lawsuits.
But they finally took a toll.

If the media woke up and got on board it would help but
this mafia regime would go after them like mad.
