Will the House arrest Lois Lerner? | TheHill
Why that spineless little weasel. That bitch needs to be frog-marched down to the White House and presented in cuffs to Obama. I'd tell Obama to be prepared for more, as long as his lying ass instructs his subordinates to act in a corrupt manner. I don't give a **** if this hasn't happened in 200 years, this corrupt **** needs to stop....NOW. If he didn't tell her to lie, his attitude inspired her to.The House has held Lois Lerner in contempt, but it won’t use its power to place the former IRS official under arrest, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said on Sunday.
Under a precedent affirmed by the Supreme Court, each chamber of Congress can authorize its sergeant-at-arms to detain individuals it holds in contempt. But Boehner said on "Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo" on Fox News that he has no interest in doing that with Lerner, whom the House last week voted to hold in contempt over her refusal to testify about her role in the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups.
“I’m not sure we want to go down that path,” Boehner said. “It’s never been used,” he said of the provision allowing Congress to arrest individuals and place them in the Capitol jail. The Senate has in fact used that power, but not in the last 80 years. “I’m not sure that it’s an appropriate way to go about this,” Boehner said.
