Lerner refuses to testify, refuses to produce emails - compel her to testify regarding the recipients, senders, subjects and contents of the "lost" email conversations or jail her for contempt of congress.
How far up the ladder does this criminal conspiracy go?
What did the president know and when did he know it?
We the people have a right to know whether or not our president is a crook and our IRS is corrupt.
Hate to say it, but if the congress is incapable of breaking this administration's stonewall, we may need a special prosecutor with the power to lock up these obviously corrupt bastards.
---- additional comment regarding the tea party and the GOP -----
Actually, it could be much worse than that. The corrupt president saw the tea party as a direct threat to his ObamaCare scam and so sent Lois Lerner and the IRS after us (along with the DHS). The GOP establishment would not have a problem with seeing the tea party attacked. Were a direct threat to them too. Its a bipartisan effort to defend the gravy train.
It is not for YOU to question the Officers of the King.
Of course you are right Jim. However, there are some real twisted sisters
running the GOP. They would rather use it as a campaign issue than
make those involved pay a price.

>> if the congress is incapable of breaking this administration’s stonewall,
A question to raise is whether or not Congress is truly interested in breaking through to the facts. I’m not confident it is.
They need to Jail the top couple levels of leadership of the IRS for destroying evidence and then let them know they can get Clemency if they squeal like a rat/pig on their co-horts and the longer they don’t the less likely they will get Clemency.
It’s time for people to start going to jail over this. It starts with Lerner.
Let’s do it Alan west’s way.put a gun to her head then ask.
She gave up her 5th Amendment right to not self incriminate by her earlier testimony.
Aside from name rank and serial number, it is essentially all or nothing.

Somebody will squeal if they squease just the right place.
Lerner has been found in Contempt of Congress, and Koskinen certainly has been contumacious and should be held in Contempt of Congress.
Congress has the authority to arrest and imprison those found in Contempt. The power extends throughout the United States and is an inherent power (does not depend upon legislated act)
If found in Contempt the person can be arrested under a warrant of the Speaker of the House of Representatives or President of the Senate, by the respective Sergeant at Arms.
Statutory criminal contempt is an alternative to inherent contempt.
Under the inherent contempt power Congress may imprison a person for a specific period of time or an indefinite period of time, except a person imprisoned by the House of Representatives may not be imprisoned beyond adjournment of a session of Congress.
Imprisonment may be coercive or punitive.

 Anderson v. Dunn - 19 U.S. 204 - And, as to the distance to which the process might reach, it is very clear that there exists no reason for confining its operation to the limits of the District of Columbia; after passing those limits, we know no bounds that can be prescribed to its range but those of the United States.

DING DING DING!!!!! Who is John Galt?
I think they are afraid of how far up the ladder it goes, because if it happens to go all the way to the top they will forced to impeach and then be painted as racist haters.
Your post is a trip into the past, isn’t it? These are exactly the same questions pounded out hourly by the “media” as they sought to bring down the loathed Richard Nixon.
As far as I am concerned, your list of questions, and their absence from the “media” is proof positive that the entire Watergate “scandal” was a political dust-up and nothing more.
The people who trumpeted those questions and demanded answers are the very same who today remain silent.
The Democrats’ defending the IRS gives them away.
Yep, the Sergeant at Arms of the House should arrest and jail her.
Inform her of her obligation to testify under oath and that she will stay locked up until the end of this Congress if she doesn’t.
Then inform her if Republicans hold control of the House in the next Congress she’ll stay locked up.
Be up front with her, don’t make her wonder what will be her future.
