Posted on 04/16/2014 7:10:13 AM PDT by cotton1706
According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner contacted the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for "lying" about political activity.
"I got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ ... He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s [sic] could talk to about Sen. Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement cases about applicants who "lied" on their 1024s --saying they weren't planning on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible political expenditures. DOJ is feeling like it needs to respond, but want to talk to the right folks at IRS to see whether there are impediments from our side and what, if any damage this might do to IRS programs. I told him that sounded like we might need several folks from IRS," Lerner wrote in a May 8, 2013 email to former Nikole C. Flax, who was former-Acting IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller's chief of staff.
"I think we should do it also need to include CI [Criminal Investigation Division], which we can help coordinate. Also, we need to reach out to FEC. Does it make sense to consider including them in this or keep it separate?"

She should be locked up right now in the basement of the House of Representatives. Bread, water and a Bible.
A glimpse of commissars in action.
drip drip drip
This woman is vying with Eric Holder for the Ernst Rohm Excellence in Goosestepping award.
There was an old spinster named Lerner
Who learned just what corruption could earn her
But the car thieving Chair
Never did grow a pair
So it all got pushed to the back-burner
Moldy bread and dirty water. And a chamber pot. No shower, just a bowl of cold water and a rag.
She needs to be prosecuted.
This e-mail serves to corroborate that the motive was political, something the administration has been able to deny up to now. It’s big. Puts a great deal more pressure on the DOJ to agree to a special prosecutor.
This is just unbelievable, what this witch is involved with.
Government corruption so bold that it defies comprehension.
‘I have done nothing wrong. I have not broken any laws.....’
Multiply this e-mail x oh, five thousand per day and you have DC in its natural state.
Lerner was part of those pesky rogue’s in Cincinnati, huh? She should be in federal prison along with her leftist IRS associates.
Lots of fodder for the fire, but it won’t burn if no one is willy to stoke it.
Damn Boehner ... what are you waiting for?!
“With such clear evidence of collusion with the DO”j” .... appoint a SPECIAL PROSECUTOR!
Damn Boehner ... what are you waiting for?!”
As I understand it, the House cannot appoint a Special Prosecutor. That is an executive function.
If Judicial Watch has these emails then presumably Darryl Issa’s committee has them as well — and don’t zero with them.
Something of this nature HAS to be approved by the imposter in the white house. No irs head can take it upon herself to start anything like this.
So, the shriveled up old marxist needs to be in jail, along with those who gave her moral support.
It is possible that they want this information to drip, drip, drip out right up to the election.
Look at all of the felonies in this administration & NOBODY will go to jail for them. Yea, it's more corrupt than any free democracy.
“whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for “lying” about political activity.”
http://www.barackobama.com/about/ comes to mind.
This needs wider play, generalizing the attitude of leftists and liberals.
Their fondest dream is to use the power of government to punish those that disagree with or resist them.
No immunity for this b*tch! She needs to be in freaking jail!
She’s a major liability to Obama and Conspirators. She should fear for her life.
IRS criminal conduct bump for later....
