cns news ^ | 4/9/14 | Terence P. Jeffrey

Posted on 04/09/2014 9:29:24 AM PDT by Nachum

(CNSNews.com) - The House Ways and Means Committee voted 23 to 14 today to refer former IRS official Lois Lerner to Attorney General Eric Holder for possible criminal prosecution.

In a contentious open-to-the-public hearing that lasted only few minutes, the House Ways and Means Committee voted this morning to immediately go into a closed session to discuss a letter proposed by the committee’s majority to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Justice Department for possible criminal prosecution.

When Ranking Member Sander Levin (D.-Mich.), seeking to make a point of order, repeatedly interrupted Chairman Dave Camp’s (R.-Mich.) attempt to start a roll-call vote intended to take the committee into closed session, Camp told him: “Just chill out. What is the gentleman’s point of order?”

Why aren’t they DEMANDING an independent prosecutor for this obvious criminal operative?

That is really funny! Refering a criminal to be tried by her partner in crime.

Is there still a plan to hold a vote on Contempt for her?

If not - this is smelling like a cop-out by the House. Instead of the House holding the key to the case against Lerner - they are content to refer it to Holder where it will go nowhere.

Please tell me this is not whats happening.

“Anyone betting that Holder will choose to prosecute?”

Course he won’t, but in light of the recent IRS admission that no liberal pacs/groups were audited or denied tax exemption, why aren’t some of these tea party pacs taking Lois Lerner and the IRS to a civil court?

Holder,” Yeah good luck with your asparagus.”

The gun-running accomplice to mass murder (?) is in no way a serious AG.

The WH and it`s stooge, Holder, are lawless.

The House Ways and Means Committee voted 23 to 14 today to refer former IRS official Lois Lerner to Attorney General Eric Holder for possible criminal prosecution.

This is NOT moving anything along. This is going through the motions again. Without a special prosecutor and investigation, holder will file this with Black Panthers, Fast & Furious, Voter Fraud, Immigration, Gay Marriage, etc. Does anyone think Eric Holder will actually file charges against one of his minions? House Republicans (John Boner) fails again.

Exactly. The house should be going the route of “Inherent Contempt”, and not involve the executive branch. If they do/did, they’ll have this ... *itch in “common jail” in no time.

This is Kabuki theater. Either they have to start this route before taking a different one, or this is just theater.

I believe they tried that already, but Holder said there was nothing to warrant an independent prosecutor. So, that tells us where this will go from here... nowhere.

DOA

She's already had her little private meeting with Holder - and the have their protection plan sealed. This will go nowhere -

and NOTHING will ever get done as long as he's Atty Gen.

Contempt? Slap on the wrist. He needs to be removed.

Only one half he population has had an Atty Gen. since 2009

Hate to disappoint you but moving to nothing. The Holder brown shirts will never trash her. And even if he did King Obama will save her. We are defeated by the communists empire that has taken over the Federal Government.

Agreed. The odds are very low that Lois Lerner actually has a stainless steel toilet in her future although she deserves one for twenty years.
