    Darrell Issa: Emails suggest Elijah Cummings prompted IRS targeting[W:130, 252, 358 ]

    now we know why Cummings is fighting this so much....

    wow...the house cards for the Libs is about to explode..

    Darrell Issa: Emails suggest Elijah Cummings prompted IRS targeting of True the Vote | WashingtonExaminer.com

    House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel's top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status.

    Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud.

    The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa's panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her involvement in targeting conservative groups.

    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.

    They won't be able to do anything about this until the Democrats lose the Senate.

    Would kinda explain why Cummings has been trying so hard to make this investigation go away.

    This is probably true. I also don't think the justice department would touch it at all while democrats are in the whitehouse.
