Obama DOJ Holdovers Refuse To Prosecute Lerner

September 9, 2017

loislernerApparently, there are no plans to charge former IRS official Lois Lerner over her role in the Tea Party targeting scandal, the Justice Department said Friday in response to calls by Republican lawmakers to revisit the case.

In a letter to the lawmakers, the Justice Department said that “reopening the criminal investigation would not be appropriate based on the available evidence.”

This past April, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, and Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., had asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to take a “fresh look” at the case.

Despite numerous hearings and inquiries into the tough treatment of conservative groups by the tax agency during the 2010 and 2012 elections, the Obama Justice Department had announced in 2015 that no one at the IRS would be prosecuted. They said at the time that investigators had “found no evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution.”

    According to the followers of O’Bama, Lois Lerner, Hillary Clinton, and many others are innocent angels unfairly accused of crimes.When they get caught, they take the fifth after denying it to others. Do you smell a rat in that woodpile?

  • justinwachin says:

    Maybe Mr. Sessions needs to have a non-Obama era employee examine Lerner’s actions. Government employees need to learn they can’t discriminate against American citizens in doing their duty. This woman basically deprived some organizations of their non-profit tax status based on their political leanings, which is protected by the first amendment. If her actions broke the law she should be prosecuted.

  • Pete Bundy says:

    Get rid of these people and go after this this creature of the swamp. She needs to be HRC’s roomy in a federal prison.

  • Ken says says:

    Hey Sessions – clean up your DOJ.

  • Linda Joy Adams says:

    Work done by contractors and since 2002m by vote of Congress; they cannot be audited to know what they are doing or stealing and cannot be prosecuted as agencies cannot use existing Budget to do so. WHY DO ONLY A FEW KNOW? BECAUSE FEW IN CONGRESS AND ONLY IN THE DEEP STATE OF THE REAL GOVT KNOW …+CONGRESS HAS A GAG ORDER RULE ON THEMSELVES THEY VOTED FOR TO NOT MENTION, CONTACYYT OR HAVE A CONTRACTOR TESTIFY.. LAZY MEDIA DID NOT DO THE RESEARCH TO KNOW THIS AND LYNN BLODGETT cabal RULER OF THE USA SBNCE 2002 SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE ONE TESTIFYING BEFORE CONGRESS about a lot IRS, Benghazi, Flint Michigan water… all his companies check it out! …BUT CONGRESS HAS GAGGED ITSELF WHY? Lynn Blodgett’s cabal is the unaccountable snooper, not the real govt and can use info as he and his cabal wishes.LINDA JOY ADAMS

    Lois Lerner, like the other crooked O’Bama people should NOT be given a free pass when IF we did the same thing WE would be in jail.

  • Bob says:

    “…will now have the green light to target Americans for their political beliefs and mislead investigators without ever being held accountable for their lawlessness.” No, the Democrats would never allow a Republican administration to have this power. It was allowed under Obama since it was not allowed to question his methods or means lest you be branded a racist.

      In my lifetime it all started with the murder of JFK and who knows how far back before then .

  • Rodzzz says:

    Where the hell is Sessions?

  • Jmanjo says:

    I cannot understand the DOJ making that statement with the evidence we have already seen . They have enough to put those jerks away for a long time. What is going on in the halls of justice when these SOBs can screw over citizens and no action is taken by our enforcement agencies!

    1. gvette says:

      The department of justice, is nothing more then a joke. It’s there to protect the left.

      1. Retired says:

        That is because most are the left wing nuts .

      2. Roy Fredrichsen says:

        You mean “To Protect the guilty” as James Comey was doing with the help of Loretta Lynch.

    2. Mike N says:

      Just goes to show some people are above the law. Being democrat and female helps.

      1. mudguy1 says:

        You forgot being a Rino helps to.

    3. Retired says:

      It is because most in the halls of Justice were Indoctrinated to be Demon Rats . The Rats cover for each other .

  • CCblogging says:

    Looks like our government is rotten to the core. Will we ever be a nation of laws again?

    1. gvette says:

      Yes, and no. If you’re a republican, you have to obey our laws. If you’re a DemonRAT, anything goes!

        I hope your wrong and this dem in Jersey gets life for abusing his office and the publics trust. No matter what party they nees to be locked up no deals. Its amazing how many go into office with modest means and come out rich if they ever leave office. Look at Obama he is now a multi millionaire. Harry Reid, McCain, maxine, nancy, Mitch and many others.

        1. Retired says:

          Did you forget about the Clintons ,DEAD BROKE when they left the WH ????

          1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

            Yeah! Spent all their money in New York on expensive houses. Hillary got appointed Secretary of State and suddenly she becomes a multi-millionaire from “donations” from other countries to The Clinton Foundation that she is the ultimate beneficiary of.

    2. Retired says:

      To many of the Clinton and Obama clan that have not been replaced because Congress is to busy playing games about Russia instead of making appointments .The list is sitting on a desk .
