Posted on 04/09/2014 6:37:03 PM PDT by smoothsailing
WASHINGTON, DC - House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement after the House Ways & Means Committee sent a criminal referral letter to the U.S. Attorney General outlining probable criminal actions taken by Lois Lerner during her tenure at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS):
The Ways & Means Committee, led by Chairman Camp, has conducted a serious and thorough investigation of the IRS, uncovering abuses and criminal acts that should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The House has also passed legislation to stop the IRS from targeting Americans over their political beliefs, but the president and Senate Democrats continue to block the bill. Our investigations at the Ways & Means and Oversight & Government Reform Committees continue. As Ive said, if Lois Lerner continues to refuse to testify, then the House will hold her in contempt. And we will continue to shine the light on the administrations abusive actions and use every tool at our disposal to expose the truth and ensure the American people get the answers they deserve.
NOTE: On February 26, the House passed the Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act (H.R. 3865), but Senate Democrats have refused to vote on the measure.
Like Holder will ever take any action.
Did Boner cry?
“I can’t comment about an on-going investigation”
for the next 3 years
Calling on all elected sheriffs to converge on Washington DC with all of their deputies and deputized citizens to take our country back immediately!
Just a thought.

You and I are more likely to be prosecuted for the JFK assassination.
Never in a million years. My question is, however, could a Pubbie AG in a future Pubbie administration prosecute her? I don't think that would happen either. I don't think we will have a Pubbie president anytime soon and even if we did, the Pubbie AG would wussy out.
Boehner’s statement, Cliff Notes version: “ZZZzzzzzzz”
holder won't do anything.
Charge the bitch with contempt and jail her immediately and let her rot until she testifies..
I’d be happy if these clowns would just try to get some regular justice for these felons.The friggin’kabuki theater has to end sometime.
Hey now, I didn’t have anything to do with that! 8^)
There has to be a reason why Congress hasn't done this since 1934, eighty years ago.
What do you suppose it might be?
I was three going on four and probably couldn’t aim a Mannlicher-Carcano. You?
If every criminal in government were jailed overnight,tomorrow morning all you would hear in Congress would be crickets chirping.
Holder wont have to!
I was 17 and in high school gym class. Strange day.
“If every criminal in government were jailed overnight,tomorrow morning all you would hear in Congress would be crickets chirping.”
I have enough insecticide to cure that!!!
Believe it or not, I do remember it. All the grown-ups were crying, an important man had died, Walter Cronkite was on TV and a little boy my age was saluting his daddy’s horse-drawn coffin. It is one of my earliest memories.
