This one just revealed today in a House Ways & Means Committee hearing.

She apparently targeted U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) for some kind of investigation like an "Audit".

All of course without any just cause.

A released and semi-censored email has confirmed this.

Definitely Global Warming from CO2 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) announced the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) targeting of conservative individuals includes a sitting United States Senator. According to emails reviewed by the Committee under its Section 6103 authority, which allows the Committee to review confidential taxpayer information, Lois Lerner sought to have Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) referred for IRS examination.

“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,” said Camp. “At every turn, Lerner was using the IRS as a tool for political purposes in defiance of taxpayer rights. We may never know the full extent of the abuse since the IRS conveniently lost two years of Lerner emails, not to mention those of other key figures in this scandal. The fact that DOJ refuses to investigate the IRS’s abuses or appoint a special counsel demonstrates, yet again, this Administration’s unwillingness to uphold the rule of law.”

Sort of makes you wonder what's in those emails that we "can't find" doesn't it?

Waiting to see how the Obamabots play this one off.

I guess they will use their witch hunt mantra.
And the POTUS is black.

The Obama defenders will probably use this as an example to show that Lerner is just a rogue political zealot, who did ALL the IRS targeting of her own accord.

Untrue, but it also would show that the Obama administration is going to officially throw her under the bus...expecting her to fall on her sword.

One question that's not being asked is this: Why is someone so high up in the IRS food chain even remotely involved in 'selecting targets' for an audit.

Lerner was being paid to be in charge of staff ... not witch hunts.

This girl is guilty. She was waaayyy outside the left and right limits of her boundaries.

However, she's serving well as a point of distraction. As long as her name stays in the spotlight, the IRS is safe from any real scrutiny.

And maybe the old "well the guy is a guilty tax cheat" routine.

And of course she was just doing her job.

My stopwatch is ticking.

one firmly knows where these "missing" e-mails trailed to. @ 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, and the AG. Servers, and the e-mails send and recieve lists should have them, but the power of the wannabe dictator and his toelickers have many friends, but somewhere there must be a hero, whom wants a legacy of exposing the corrupt scumbags, problem is no one left with any balls whatsoever......except hillary, (but she is evil too)...

There is a incredibly huge BINGO right there. She is the distraction for the real criminals, and before it over with she will be fed to the sharks. Republicans will have their pound of flesh and all will be forgotten. Hopefully the people keep pushing and don't let it happen. Star to you Snarl

My sixth sense tells me the government broke a trail that leads directly to the Department of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve ... not the White House.

The Tea Party is a threat to the Republicans ... not the Dems. What interest would 0bama have in harming the enemy of his enemy?

Bombshell-> Lois Lerner Targeted a Sitting U.S. Senator


Under who's orders?

Lerner doesn't hold an elected seat. So she did not do this to be self serving.

She was doing someone's bidding.

Hmmm. . . . . who would have a political motivation to weaken or distract or even investigate a sitting republican senator?

Maybe Lois Lerner is actually an infiltrator working for the "Tea Party".

I bet she is a relative of Debbie Wasserman Schultz !!!

No wonder SHE plead the 5th

I hear it now. Poor Lois. All she was doing, was her job. Why pick on her.

Now she dances tantalizingly closer to an obvious Title 18 USC 4 violation. Lois forgot some of us work daily with email, and archiving.

Why can't we subpoena the NSA's records? The cat's been out of the bag for quite a while now, we know they have those emails.

that's worth posting.



Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Naughty Naughty Lois !!

This whole affair is starting to make Watergate seem like a benign joke.Using a government agency to financially ruin political opponents? Just how much lower can our political"leaders"sink.As a citizen I'm ashamed...and worried about our future.

Typical liberal response:

"Crazy conservative nut jobs, always trying to fabricate scandals to gain political ground."



I thought I'd just go ahead and add that comment to save them the trouble.

Senators are exempt from being audited? Who knew this thing we called the US Gov was all a sham?

Better yet. I want to know who gave her Sen. Grassley's invitation to the event. He never got it, didn't know about it, and didn't attend it.

Lerner claimed it was delivered to her by mistake.

That's enough BS for Monsanto to fertilize a the whole freakin' State of Texas.
