Lerner Wanted DOJ to Prosecute Tea Party
Anyone else would be in jail.
Check it out:
From Katie Pavlich at Town Hall.com: “According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for ‘lying’ about political activity.”
So Eric Holder and Lois Lerner not only are liars, they’re in cahoots. Lois Lerner was asking the Department of Justice to criminally prosecute people like Catherine Engelbrecht. This woman, this Lerner, this is a witch. This is a very unhappy — well, you can tell. I mean, if everything’s going her way, this is the kind of woman, person, not because she’s a woman, she’s just not happy. Don’t doubt me on this. She’s just seething with rage every day.
So she’s in charge of tax-exempt status applications, and here comes the Tea Party, and we all know what happened, none of them were granted tax-exempt status. They were denied their constitutional rights to political free speech, and furthermore now we learn that she was sending e-mails up to DOJ asking that they be criminally prosecuted.
“These new emails show that the day before she broke the news of the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner was talking to a top Obama Justice Department official about whether the DOJ could prosecute the very same organizations that the IRS had already improperly targeted,’ Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. ‘The IRS emails show Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is now implicated and conflicted in the IRS scandal. No wonder we had to sue in federal court to get these documents.'” It’s from the Freedom of Information Act requests.
