I predict the ‘Rats will rally around to vote no — and then accuse the Reps of “partisanship.”
It will lose by one vote.
Gee; I wonder how many democrat/communists on the committee will deviate from the Party Line?
I think they’re barking up the wrong tree here. Given these egregious and heinous IRS acts against our freedom investigators ought to be able to come up with enough evidence without challenging Lerner’s 5A rights, which is technically a legally questionable challenge. GOP going down another rabbit trail IMO, instead of nailing it with solid evidence. If it’s as pervasive as it sounds, then, dang, go get it, present it, and prosecute accordingly.
“slow” lerner claimed that the Tea Party Was Dangerous eh?
Ironic .Lerner’s craven lust to please her master, Obama, got her into this mess. She hated the TEA Party and this hatred destroyed her career. Sometimes it’s turkey and sometimes it’s feathers ...
Time to stand and be counted dems. You want to go down with a sinking ship, then vote to protect Lerner. That vote will be used against them in the upcoming elections.
She should have recognized that Obama is all about Obama. Everyone else is subject to being tossed under the bus when they become a liability.
Mr Lynch has just invoked the Volcanic Outburst of Mr Cummings.....
how productive that was
Agree. Also, until they get extortion out, nothing will happen. They may throw her to the the wolves; but she will land in a clover field somewhere, just like the others.
She gave up her 5th Amendment rights (by making a statement) in her initial session.
Basically, even if they find her in contempt, nothing will happen to her...after all, Holder was already found in contempt, and that hasn’t even slowed him down. He simply ignored it.
But this does help them to build a case for criminal prosecution. Of course, the problem is that charges would have to be preferred by the DOJ, and that’s certainly not going to happen.
A request for a special prosecutor also has to go through the DOJ.
So unless the press promotes this and gets people upset enough to demand a special prosecutor (as they did with Nixon), nothing is going to happen.
If Obama finds himself in a position where this is really going negative on him, he’ll tell Holder to appoint somebody. However, the likelihood of the press reporting this is slim to none.
Lerner used to be the windshield....
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The Committee has 23 Republicans and 17 Democrats.
The final vote is easy to predict. The Contempt Resolution will pass 23 to 17.
Rep. Horsford sets off my Gaydar...
Good, but dems have no shame and no principles. They will defend the shriveled up old saggy skin hag.
The ‘justice’ department will refuse to prosecute her.
After this all blows over, she will get a high-paying low-effort job compliments of the democrat party.
is he the clown from detroit?
the Ayes have it!
but.....BUSH DID IT!
This is but one tactic in an overall strategy. The Ways and Means Committee referral is another such tactic. We may be witnessing the beginning of a full court press by the various House Committees.
Congress, or either House thereof, may apply directly to a court to convene a grand jury and appoint a special prosecutor if it is clearly shown (can be) that Prosecutor has a conflict of interest, is biased or is failing to perform his function. Must be beyond an abuse of discretion, which it is.
Instead, it would be nice if Congress could find their own investigators and prosecute around the corrupt DOJ.
A true AG would have slapped the IRS 3 years ago. Must be covering for the hero of Benghazi.
The only way to deal with this has to be outside Holder’s control.
Otherwise, we’ll get 3 years of “investigation still underway.”
If it passes, and she is arrested, I do hope her life insurance is paid up.
And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves
Notice all the Dems that didn’t even bother to show up?
Thanks maggief! 8^)
Lets see if this makes it to the MSM news tonight. I might watch just to see their reaction.
the puke from detroit was probably just a mama’s boy...
her Pal Senator Cummings.....is about tom take some heat as well....
t appears that Elijah Cummings, the committees ranking Democrat and therefore the Congressman to whom these staffers reported, may have lied during a committee hearing when he denied that his staffers had put the IRS on the trail of True the Vote.
I’ll bet if it gets reported by the MSM at all it will be as a “Republican temper tantrum in their on-going war on women”.
Elijah Cummings will be portrayed as the noble knight defending the fair maiden Lois Lerner.
Yup. I am actually looking forward to tuning in tonight.
Five of the Democrap `Brave Sir Robins’ voted `Present’?
Profiles in courage, yes sir!
They didn’t vote present, they didn’t even show up! HA!
They bravely ran away!
I may be wrong, but having resigned does not immunize her from the Contempt of Congress charge and subsequent punishment.
