Schock: ‘Clear Evidence’ Lerner Broke The Law
Washington Free Beacon ^ | 4/9/14 | Washington Free Beacon Staff

Posted on 04/09/2014 6:10:05 PM PDT by Nachum

Rep. Aaron Schock (R., Ill.) told Fox News host Gretchen Carlson there is “clear evidence” embattled former IRS official Lois Lerner broke the law Wednesday on Fox News.

The House Ways and Means Committee released a report today revealing evidence highly incriminating to Lerner, and will refer her to the Justice Department for prosecution.

Among the more startling allegations, Schock revealed the committee found evidence she deliberately attempted to obstruct Crossroads GPS’s 501 (c)(4) approval for purely political reasons.

“We have in writing her own e-mails after meeting with liberal-leaning groups like Democracy 21 and others where they specifically say, go after Crossroads GPS, target Crossroads GPS, shut them down, are the words that were used. She then goes after that meeting and e-mails her subordinates and says, ‘give me all of the documentation on Crossroads,’ and suggests denying their application.”

There is always a reason that people resort to the Fifth Amendment right and it is always guilt.

So they refer it to the AG who is even more corrupt and in the same way as Lerner. Maybe it is required by the rules but no one who is not stupid or insane expects Holder to do anything but break the law himself.

All it would take would be ONE brave state AG to take up the case on behalf of an aggrieved citizen, to blow this up.

But, that person would have to assume that any political career they might want is OVER the day they start on it, because the media will CRUCIFY them, not to mention the NSA, IRS, and the Just Us Department.

It's important to criminalize Lerner, ASAP. There must be deterrent to future IRS targeting and other lawlessness.

If Holder refuses to prosecute Lerner then what, if any recourse is there?
Holder is NOTHING MORE than and “employee” of WE, THE PEOPLE. Can we hold him also in contempt, AGAIN?

What a bunch of crooked bastards we have working for US.

clear evidence.. and ....... nothing will be done

until such things are address properly (ie: people put in jail then trial for their crimes) this country will continue to deteriorate

I very much doubt anything happens to her. She'll almost certainly resign with her huge pension intact. Then she'll go to some university, or to one of the numerous left-wing "charities" with a six-figure salary on top of her pension and gold-plated health plan. Another possibility: she lands in the tax and estate division of some big law firm.

Oh! Look at this. Her faithful hubby is a partner at Sutherland Asbill & Brennan, a 400-attorney firm headquartered in Atlanta.

Chance of her getting the Scooter Libby treatment: zero point zero.

Yeah, and it is my belief that OFA has literally billions of dollars behind it. All the ACORN money, all the "billion-here-and-billion-there" little "oops, we can't account for that, Congressman" leaks that have occurred over the last five years.

The $6B that disappeared from the Department of State, big chunks of the tens of billions of dollars that were sunk into bogus ObamaCare website development projects, not to mention huge amounts from offshore sources and the "ditzy-billionair's-wives-club."

I'm sure I'm only scratching the surface.

Ms. Lerner will be very handsomely rewarded for her service as a stand-up guy.

Prison terms are for Republicans, who have consciences and show remorse.

"The beotch is toast".

You're absolutely correct, Commander. There's even more coming out that will hit Lerner in the eye like a big pizza pie.

One such juicy tidbit is regarding the conservative group, "True the Vote".

She and her IRS henchmen and henchwomen just loved to wantonly email each other about their little conspiracies and strategeries aimed at intended conservative victims...and lots of these emails are now safely ensconced in Trey Gowdy's right hip pocket.

AG Eric Hitler notwithstanding, one way or another, we won't have to wait long. We'll soon see Ms. Lerner disappear from her IRS post faster than a cat in a Taco Bell kitchen.

Lerner has been doing this since 1992. She and Holder are of the same class of taking out conservatives once they witnessed Contract with America.

True Red Commies.

Pretty important goings on at the Capitol, and as expected the MSM circles the wagons by non-reporting, dismissive or biased reporting.

If they arrest or detain her on the spot, it'll get the media's attention. Keep in mind it's tax season. People will not be siding with a corrupt IRS manager.

The error in your reasoning being the right to not incriminate oneself is a Courtroom doctrine. It is not a rule applicable to “the court of public opinion.”
