Posted on 05/12/2014 9:31:23 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The House may have voted to hold former Lois Lerner in contempt, but dont expect John Boehner to authorize the sergeant-at-arms to arrest the former IRS employee at the center of the agencys targeting of conservative groups. Instead, the speaker said the responsibility lies with the Justice Department and attorney general Eric Holder to prosecute Lerner.
Will he do it? We dont know, but the ball is in his court, Boehner told Fox News on Sunday.
When asked why Boehner didnt issue an arrest warrant himself, he said the provision has never been used before and he was not sure its an appropriate way to go about this: Im not quite sure we want to get on that path.
Pass-the-buck Boehner. No surprise there.
So we’ll never get to the truth. Figures.
Boehner is such a weak person. Even if he doesn’t plan to arrest her, don’t say so. If asked just say he is thinking about it or considering it. Then let her squirm for a year or two. This is really stupid to do and shows why Boehner should not be the GOP leader in the House. He is pitiful.
So why do you waste our time getting a contempt vote? Boner is a useless tit.
In the meantime the IRS continues it’s war on conservatives and the GOPe seems to like it.
Replace him as Speaker. He doesn’t deserve the title.
Evidently Lerner’s “one of the Club” and they can’t prosecute “one of their own”.
If that were any of us, we’d be in jail forever.
“(Boner) said the responsibility lies with the Justice Department and attorney general Eric Holder to prosecute Lerner”
Heh. He’s such a funny Boner.
Boehner Ohhhh. Dont make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard.
Gosh Mr. Speaker, werent you elected to make choices. To solve problems. But I guess after your meeting in the white house on the 25th of February, you have chosen the path of least resistance.
So I guess now we know what the February 25th meeting in the white house with odumbo was about;
We will remember this every time the lefties punk you and treat you like their little prison girlfriend and you cave in. Ohhhh. Dont make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard - [dont make me stand on conservative principles].
AG Eric Holder was held in civil and criminal contempt of congress in 2012 for failing to turn over documents in the Fast and Furious matter. But he is still permitted to testify before congress and to continue to display his contempt for that body. Actually, maybe Holder has a point.
Well, so much for that. And this goomba won his primary.
Indeed. In sandwich form.
It is Holder’s job to attend to this matter and prosecute. If Holder won’t do it, then arrest him and his boss, and prosecute them. That is indubitably the correct approach.
Boehner wants Eric Holder (who himself was held in contempt ), to prosecute Lois Lerner ( who was held in contempt )....
What is this, a joke?
I’m sure that the House has done all that it will do to Lerner and her handlers.
They are experts at empty posturing.
Jokes appear to be all that Republican “leadership” is capable of providing.
Two shows on Sunday, two drink minimum.
Hes a worthless, spineless goober.
Unfit for duty."
I am convinced that the only reason obama is till alive is because number two is a brain dead imbecile name biden and number three is the scum of the earth, boehner.
Otherwise I honestly think some Patriot would have rescued the nation by now.
