Is Lois Lerner going to jail?


No big surprise here for those of us that love justice, but the House Ways and Means Committee has found evidence that Lois Lerner may have committed crimes while targeting conservative groups while in her high level director position at the IRS.

We all pretty much know that Ms Lerner has something to hide by the way she has hidden behind the 5th Amendment twice and refused to answer questions while appearing before Congress.

Yes, Lerner should be tried like a common criminal by the Justice Department, but since another Obama criminal, Eric Holder, runs the Justice Department, Lerner will probably never see a day in court.

Read more below from ABC News:

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency’s tea party controversy.

Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency’s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department “for possible criminal prosecution.”

Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken.

Lerner’s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp’s announcement: “One word: Ridiculous.”

Camp’s committee has been investigating the IRS for nearly a year. Unlike other House committees, Ways and Means has access to confidential taxpayer information as part of its investigation.

If the committee votes to refer Lerner to the Justice Department, the committee is expected to make the referral public.

The Justice Department is already investigating whether any crimes were committed when IRS agents singled out tea party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status from 2010 to 2012.
