Grassley is the wrong Senator to have picked. Lerner may yet be going to a federal prison.

I want to know the details behind Boehner reassuring Lerner that the House would not have her arrested. What kind of IDIOTIC comment was THAT?

They got her now! Either she squeals or she will find herself in the jail bird hotel. If she wants to live it would behoove her to stay out of parks and airplanes. ;-)

You’re not alone buddy...

Problem is, she’s just A tip of ONE iceberg.

But hell yeah, it’s a damn good start. Want to see that smirk wiped off her face. Along with that other little weasel that Trey Gowdy mopped the floor with the other day.

Whether he assured her or not, Boehner still is in collusion with the current un-American government-in-power.

FNC: “Looked like they were inappropriately offering to pay for his wife. Perhaps we should refer to Exam?” she wrote.

Her colleague, though, pushed back on the idea, saying an offer to pay for his wife is “not prohibited on its face.” There is no indication from the emails that Lerner pursued the issue any further.

While no doubt her motives were not innocent, I’m not aware of any law violation that is specifically proven by this email alone. Maybe more where this came from, though?

How would Lerner receive an invitation that was meant to go to Senator Grassley? Is she intercepting his mail/email?

Dr. Ben Carson was audited by the IRS following his speech at the prayer breakfast where Obama was also in attendance. Remember Obama writing something down and we all thought it was probably notes on how Obamacare could be improved based on the Dr's comments? Well, NO... Obama was writing "Order the IRS to AUDIT THIS BASTARD!!! (Ben Carson)"

Someone refresh my memory. Didn’t Lerner have an unusually high number of meetings with the White House? Many more than the previous person in her position had with George W. Bush, IIRC. Or am I wrong?

Yup. Kind of like when Diane Feinstein didn't say boo about the government snooping in our emails and phone calls, until they did it to her computer and she went on the floor of the Senate bitching and moaning in outrage. When their ox is gored, well, that's different!

It sounds like the wrong invitation was placed in the wrong envelope.

Notice how she swooped down on the opportunity to GET a Republican senator for the very chance of wrongdoing. If it was Barbara Boxer it would have never crossed her mind and she would have accepted in order to do air kisses with Babs on that stage.

Notice from the copy of that email, her initial message was ----"Sent from my Blackberry Wireless Handheld."

Does anyone know where emails sent from a Blackberry are stored? On the device itself? If so, they should subpoena hers and those of the others whose HDDs mysteriously crashed.

In a statement, Grassley’s office said the senator did not attend the event, and did not receive any invitation intended for Lerner.

“This kind of thing fuels the deep concerns many people have about political targeting by the IRS and by officials at the highest levels,” Grassley said. “It’s very troubling that a simple clerical mix-up could get a taxpayer immediately referred for an IRS exam without any due diligence from agency officials.”

“We have seen a lot of unbelievable things in this investigation, but the fact that Lois Lerner attempted to initiate an apparently baseless IRS examination against a sitting Republican United States senator is shocking,” Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, said. “At every turn, Lerner was using the IRS as a tool for political purposes in defiance of taxpayer rights.”

Also Wednesday, a group of Republican senators — including Grassley — said they want to expand a Senate investigation to look more closely at how the agency lost the emails.

Republican members of the Senate Finance Committee said they want know why the Treasury Department and the White House were told about the lost emails more than a month before Congress was told. They have asked committee chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore., to schedule a hearing with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

Prison

Last night Issa said he had filed 4 criminal charges against Lerner with DOJ.

In the absence of any prosecution, Holder should be removed.
