    Re: Issa uncovers the smoking gun int he IRS targeting of conservatives

    If the house committee really wanted the information she has, then they would have granted her immunity from prosecution. I suspect it is more theater than investigation.

    Ways and Means Committee Refers Lois Lerner to Department of Justice for Criminal Prosecution | House Committee on Ways & Means

    Washington, DC – Today, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) announced that the Committee, acting under its authority granted in Sec. 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code, voted out a criminal referral letter to Department of Justice (DOJ) Attorney General Eric Holder regarding actions taken by IRS employee Lois Lerner. Chairman Camp, in sending the letter on behalf of the Committee, urged Holder to take a serious review of the evidence uncovered through the Committee’s investigation to determine whether Lerner violated criminal statutes.

    The Committee uncovered three specific acts undertaken by Lerner that may have violated one or more criminal statutes documented in the letter:
    •Lerner used her position to improperly influence agency action against only conservative organizations, denying these groups due process and equal protection rights under the law. She showed extreme bias and prejudice towards conservative groups. The letter lays out evidence on how Lerner targeted conservative organization Crossroads GPS as well as other right-leaning groups, while turning a blind eye to similarly-organized liberal groups, like Priorities USA.
    •Lerner impeded official investigations by providing misleading statements in response to questions from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).
    •Lerner risked exposing, and may actually have disclosed, confidential taxpayer information, in apparent violation of Internal Revenue Code section 6103 by using her personal email to conduct official business.
    If convicted of these crimes, Lerner could face up to 11 years in prison.

    snip.... MUST READ THE TIMELINE... MUST READ...HIT LINK
    Travis,

    Could you please explain why groups such as Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS should gain non-profit status under IRS code 501c4 which is for groups who are exclusively dedicated to "social welfare" organizations?

    Then, why is Lerner pleading the 5th?

    Yeah, why does she need immunity? I mean, there's been no crime. Right?!?

    Link?

    There seem to be much more evidence to the contrary...

    And we can start with Watergate......

    This sewer rat scandal is tawdry enough without trying to suggest, as in the Obama White House MO, to deny there is any legal substance. If that WERE the case Lerner and her legal mouthpieces would have brought in an injunction long before she was caught in the 5th Amendment trap.

    Sher lied. She got caught.

    People only lie when they have done something wrong.

    To say there is no wrongdoing here is pure and simple, but no less disgusting propaganda.

    I would say "nice try" but the stupid ploy is so obvious and old it's a joke for 3 year olds.

    Exclusively


    Social Welfare Organizations

    To be tax-exempt as a social welfare organization described in Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 501(c)(4), an organization must not be organized for profit and must be operated exclusively to promote social welfare.
