Or do you not remember how his administration directly pressured the states' attorneys general to begin and conduct voter fraud investigations and fired some of those attorneys general who refused to do so due to lack of evidence....
    We have to be careful with the language. One of the criteria used to determine if a group was in violation of 501c status was deemed to be improper. But that is different than saying that groups were improperly targeted.

    Between the collusion with the DoJ and Cummings, it's fairly damning. Not a slam dunk yet, but it's on the way there.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    There's no evidence of collusion with Cummings.

    Lerner is not allowed to talk to the DOJ about people found to have been violating the law?

    My thoughts exactly.

    Perhaps you're unaware of the following ... ?

    Cummings role on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is ranking minority member. And the latest charge from the right is that his staff members requested information from the IRS on a conservative Texas group, essentially putting them on the radar for the IRS to pursue.

    I'm sure if there's more we'll find out. It's fairly light on the "evidence" I agree but there's smoke there...

    Oh, I'm aware of it -- I've been following every bit of this case intensely.

    There's no there there.

    When you inquire about a non profit tax exempt org there are some very standard questions about how they operate.

    That conspiratorial minded cons think because these standard questions are similar -- there must have been collusion, is absurd to anyone with two nickles of IQ points to rub together.

    Time will tell. I'm not so anxious to say he wasn't involved because a.) he's a politician b.) this is Washington D.C. and c.) it wouldn't surprise me in the least he would be involved.
