Uncovered IRS emails show Lerner talked with DOJ about pursuing 'political' groups


Newly uncovered emails show Lois Lerner, the key figure in the IRS scandal, was talking with the Justice Department about going after groups seeking tax-exempt status, just days before she publicly acknowledged the agency was targeting Tea Party and other organizations.

The emails, obtained by Judicial Watch and first reported by TownHall.com, are another indication the targeting may have stretched deeper into the Obama administration. Lerner, the director of the agency’s Exempt Organizations division before retiring last year, initially said the targeting was limited to agents working in the IRS’ Cincinnati field office.

However, a series of inspector general and congressional probes since the scandal broke last year appear to show the targeting of mostly conservative-leaning groups seeking tax-exempt status was orchestrated in Washington.

In a May 2013 email, Lerner responded to a Justice Department inquiry about whether tax-exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for lying about political activity. I am curious if Issa is going to finally start pushing for independent investigators since it apparent the DOJ is not going to do their jobs anytime soon.

"I got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ,” Lerner reportedly wrote to the office of Steven Miller, the agency’s acting director at the time. “He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s [sic] could talk to about Sen. Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement cases about applicants who 'lied' on their 1024s -- saying they weren't planning on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible political expenditures.




In another email, Lerner discussed with agency staffers the purpose of an upcoming, April 9 2013, hearing that also suggests the targeting went beyond the IRS.

This story has taken an even more interesting turn...

This administration is like an onion... Each time you peel away a layer you find another one.

To those who voted for Obama - meh....

He needs to go along with his cabinet. Investigate, charge and go for a conviction - Party does not matter.

Nixon and his administration were saints compared to Obama and his cronies.

I totally agree. He needs to go. It's not about party it's about criminal activity.

Agreed!
He needs to go........
But who is gonna make him?
Remove him and it will probably start a civil war.
For one, these Politicians lie so honestly. They have people who actually believe every word that dribbles out of their mouths.
Two, Obama is the best of them all. He has so many blind followers that if he says the word they will start attacking any of the "terrorist" who oppose him.
