Former IRS official Lois Lerner will be held in contempt of Congress "in the very near future," Rep. Trey Gowdy told Fox News on Wednesday.
The South Carolina Republican sits on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, and told "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" that he wants to see an end to the delay in providing subpoenaed emails from Lerner over the targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.
IRS Chief John Koskinen was grilled Wednesday by the committee over his agency's failure to produce the emails. Koskinen said it could take years to comply with the committee's request.
"All we want are the emails to or from Lois Lerner. I'm not talking about private taxpayer information," Gowdy told Van Susteren.
"Just emails like the one she sent celebrating a Democrat victory in a special election, calling on the FEC to save the day – overtly political, nothing to do with her job. We'll just settle for those," Gowdy added.

Why announce an intention?? Just do it.
I hold Congress in contempt.
So, shall she then be placed on secret probation or does it escalate to double secret probation?
We must start prosecuting these bastards right up to the top and not let up until we get them all and we devastate them financially where they are fighting in a supermarket parking lot for refundable bottles and cans and a cart to put them in
as soon as one congressman mentions the death penalty she will come quickly to the hearing and spill it all
What ever happened to the concept of public servants and associated responsibilities?
The EXEMPT, hated, treasonous US Congress is so stupid
as to think the American People will continue to do nothing
as they gorge themselves on stolen money, “laws”
from which they immune, drugs, alcohol, as they LIE
and glibly permit corruption unimagined last century.
Lois Lerner is about to get a job with NSA at the white house ,move over Susan Rice
Jail is not adequate punishment for her crimes against the Republic
There are nogreater crimes than destruction of the right to speak and vote
Contempt? How about completely missing for 5 years now? The usual Congressional media circuses don’t count if theres no results..
F’n A right just do it.
As a federal officer acting under color of law, the fifth amendment does not apply to her. She is not a ‘citizen’ when performing any of her official acts. She is merely an employee.
Contempt of Congress? Oh,please stop....you're killing us!
unions, and commies. but I repeat myself.

I’m good with that!
I’d love to Gowdy as the AG.
That was great, Gowdy knows how to cut to the quick!
Come to think of it he does seem very well suited for the role of Attorney General.
it was just suggested that Gowdy would make a great e AG.
I think Im gonna second that motion
“SOON” is a four letter word. Just DO IT!! Do you expect her to RSVP? You’re NOT going to scare her into singing like a canary. She has seen Hillary get away with the “What difference does it make” disrespect with no consequence whatsoever. Lerner does not think you guys have the nerve or the resolve to bring that judicial hammer down, and frankly, I’m not holding my breath either.
If Gowdy was running the show it would probably have already been done.
Hearing it from Gowdy makes me think it indeed will happen.
He’s one of the few I can say that about, that’s for sure.
not holding my breath.
I really really like this guy - and would support him for any office.
Tonight the FBI should be ordered by Congress to arrest this bietch immediately. After arrest waterboard the bietch and she will squeal like a pig. Contempt is too civil. Treat her like she treated the taxpayers with contempt.
Just threaten to dump her off on a street in Louisville. ;-)
Hope he can be trusted. But is he serious about this or just acting the part of the “GOP hard ass” to keep the base in line?
I think she should be held in contempt. My question is, however, didn't Holder get a contempt citation too? Did it hurt him at all? I don't think Lerner is exactly shaking in her boots. I just think it will be business as usual, unfortunately.
Wow what is Keith Richards doing there?
Unfortunately it won’t happen with the holder as AG and the DOJ under soetoro. Impeachment is the only option.
Won’t amount to a hill of beans unfortunately.
The people holding the IRS hearings are beginning to remind me of Obama. A lot of promises, and a lot of bluster, but no delivery.
Lower level apparatchiks are crucified on a daily basis, but degenerates like Lerner and Sandy Berger always seem to skate.
IRS needs to go, replace it with some other less maniacal bureaucracy with extremely limited powers.
Does Russia have an IRS?
JUST DO IT ALREADY!
It’s become a Monty Python skit.
Issa and Co. should go away before the administration and IRS taunt them a second time.
Or is it a 19th time?
Wake me when there are any consequences associated with the criminal behaviorS of anyone in this administration.
That went away when Kennedy allowed public employees to unionize and when government “workers” became de facto employees of the DNC.
Agreed, I trust him also.
And is Gowdy subject to the spinelessness of Issa or can he move forward with contempt charges unilaterally? I want Lerner held in a friggin’ cell until Gowdy and Issa are both that they’ve gotten all relevant correspondence. Then I want her in a cell for her crimes.
Is it too much to ask that our side actually make the other side play by the rules for once???
