A Prosecution? That’ll Lerner!

Two Republican lawmakers are asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reopen the Lois Lerner/IRS case, where the organization actively targeted Tea Party groups during Barack Obama’s regime.

Reps. Kevin Brady of Texas and Peter Roskam of Illinois asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions Wednesday to take a “fresh look” at the case for prosecuting Lerner. Brady is the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which in 2014 referred Lerner for prosecution after investigating the IRS targeting scandal. Roskam is the chairman of the tax subcommittee.

In a letter sent to Sessions Wednesday, the two wrote that when the Obama Department of Justice declined to prosecute Lerner, “the agency was following President Obama’s signal on how he wanted the investigation to be handled.”

“Taxpayers deserve to know that the DOJ’s previous evaluation was not tainted by politics,” they added in calling for Sessions to consider the case again.

I wholeheartedly agree. Lerner and her IRS cronies are corrupt as the day is long, but since she was acting on orders from the White House, she was never prosecuted by the DoJ. Now there’s a new sheriff in town, and this one actually believes in law and order.

  1. Agreed on the new Sheriff and his beliefs, but I’ll BELIEVE IT when I see it. I will hold out hope, but not forever.

  2. My greatest wish is that Lerner, Rice and Hillary are prosecuted for their various crimes against the US citizenry and the government. I honestly doubt it will happen and now Lerner has said she fears someone will kill her if she testifies or her previous testimony is released. At what point do these idiotic politicians (both sides) learn that it’s usually the coverup and not the initial crime that brings the most anger and punishment? I do think that Jeff Sessions would probably relish prosecuting any or all of these three.

  3. TXNick – She definitely needs to be charged. Nixon’s administration was charged for less than this.

    Doc – Agreed, but it’s a step in the right direction.

    Metoo – I wish Trump would go after Hillary for her server, but I think he figures her losing the election was punishment enough. Now Hillary is speaking out against the administration, so Trump should change his tune post haste.
