The fact this person is not in jail shows how flawed our government is today. Zero accountability.

They must have it in for Grassley because he was the one who cut off ACA negotiations years ago assuring they would get NO GOP votes.

It makes plain the erstwhile fallacy of “balance of power”:

The executive branch is in control, regarding the other two branches as decorations.

WHY do we have a legislative and judicial branches?

I don’t get it.

Surprised?

Yawn.

What would surprise me is if the pubbies actually grew a pair and charged that women and the administration she served with, at the very least, high crimes, let alone outright treason.

Now that would surprise the hell out of me. But I ain’t gonna hold my breath.

I have lost all faith in the Republican Party, not republican ideals mind you,. Just that party that once upon a time, used to embrace those ideals.

Wow.

Update: Ways and Means has provided the email in question.

http://waysandmeans.house.gov/uploadedfiles/irs_grassley.pdf

In the exchange, Lerner mistakenly receives an invitation to an event that includes Grassley. She leaps to the conclusion that travel expenses were “inappropriately” offered for Mrs. Grassley. So she suggests referring the senator for an audit.

I personally suspect they already have the e-mails and are just trying to prod players to come forward to save themselves by providing more evidence.

This isn’t political targeting. Its just another horrible but innocent mistake, to add to the thousand other horrible but innocent mistakes that the IRS has made.

Lerner sent a message on her Blackberry, which also includes chatter about the Alamo Bowl. Is that inappropriate use of a government phone? Maybe she should be investigated by the IRS...

Given what appears to be a media shift on this topic, you’re probably right about the emails and the media has gotten a whiff of what’s there.

Can’t the GOP locate a federal prosecutor in some district who is somewhat independent of the DOJ and a big enough name that Holder wouldn’t fire him to get his Grand Jury to investigate Lois Lerner? She has definitely done enough to indict her. That might put some pressure on her to cough up more information.

It is amazing. Especially since Lerner does not have emails to back up
her testimony. In other words, she can say anything, without being contradicted by lost emails.
Why isn’t Issa calling the tech folks who removed and destroyed the hard
drives to testify?
The GOP does not really want to get to the bottom of this.
It is simply a Kabuki Dance for a campaign issue.
It has nothing to do with holding anyone accountable.

I always wondered about Reid announcing to the world that he knew that Romney didn’t pay taxes. Problem with that one is I don’t think it turned out to be true. But still....

This email may be on purpose to show that they ‘almost’ did something wrong. Throwing the dog a bone. Now the Sunday talk shows can claim that the IRS is giving out damning emails, but those emails aren’t so bad.

Yep. The first rule of getting along in D.C. is not to threaten the fat cats. If you do, expect them all to step on you, hard. Because they won't see this as hitting a Republican, they'll see it as hitting a Senator.
