Trump DOJ: NO PLANS TO CHARGE LOIS LERNER IN IRS SCANDAL

The Trump administration has 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."

The Republicans who requested a fresh look at the case were disappointed in the Trump DOJ's response.

"This is a terrible decision," Brady said. "It sends the message that the same legal, ethical, and constitutional standards we all live by do not apply to Washington political appointees."

Lerner headed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt groups. An inspector general's report in 2013 found that the IRS had singled out conservative and tea party groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. Many had their applications delayed for months and years. Some were asked improper questions about their donors and even their religious practices.

Much of the agency's leadership, including Lerner, resigned or retired over the scandal.

Brady said appointees "will now have the green light to target Americans for their political beliefs and mislead investigators without ever being held accountable for their lawlessness."

Lerner and her attorney have long maintained she did nothing wrong.

In 2014, the Ways and Means Committee voted to refer Lerner to the Justice Department for possible criminal prosecution.

Republicans on the committee said she may have violated the constitutional rights of conservative groups, misled investigators and risked exposing confidential taxpayer information.


Well, well, well. I guess this is just another move on that fancy chess board we keep hearing about. Just like the chants of " Lock her up, lock her up, lock her up " talking about Shitlerly, it looks like all the bluster of prosecuting Lerner were equal piles of steaming BULL SHIT !! It was all fed to the suckers, er voters, by a carnival huckster!

The way they are dealing with Shitlerly & now Lerner, what does this tell everyone about the "Rule of Law" ? We have reverted back to medieval Europe. If you are a king / queen / duke / earl / baron, etc, you can do what you want, free of any punishment. Many citizens will take the opinion that if the political class do not have to follow the law, why should we ?? Good question !!

I don't like being lied to! F^CK trump, I will not vote for him again !!

I must admit im very disappointed in AG Sessions and President Trump for not being more aggressive in going after those in high positions in govenrment using their power against the little guy who can not defend himself against the criminals in government that abuse their power!!!

Is not our enemy their enemy? This would be the best way to strike fear in the progressives and shake them to the core knowing that they can be gotten too?!?!

Not being more aggressive ?? Hell, if they get any less aggressive, they will be in a coma !!

Hell, it is obvious to me, we have been had. There is no opposition, they are all on the same team, just wearing different uniforms. They are all playing by a script, just like reality TV. It is all to fool the suckers US.

We have been had, and unfortunately, too few will admit it !

I knew that they were on the same team, the one that pits them (the elite) against us (the peons). I just wrongly put my hopes on a renegade Presidential candidate. The same game is now being played. The GREATEST THREAT TO THE REPUBLIC that Republicans cry about when in election mode, amnesty, gun control, and out of control spending, happen easily with the R's in control. The GREATEST Threats to the Republic that D's cry about don't exist anymore. They have won every battle and now are pointed to destroy the Republicans, the Electoral system, local policing, and opposition from any source. The R's may just well get them everything they dream about.

Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.

That is true about your dog.

As to " I don't want to step on your toes, but where have you been? " I don't know what you mean. I have been here where I always am.

I wonder when the Trumpsters here are ever going to admit that he is just another lying scumbag globalist, NWO politician?

NEVER !!

Just like on another board I go on. The Trumpsters there are like a bunch of sheep. Whatever he does is great to them. Its just like people are with their kids. Their kid is perfect, always. Its always somebody else s kid that is a rotten spoiled little bastard. This other board, none of the pom pom crowd there are saying much, except to say that if you say anything, you are bashing trump. They are really eat up with it. And they think they are oh so smart, and that Trump is god. If you do not agree, it is because you are too stupid to understand Saint Donald is playing 75 D Chess. They are too stupid to realize they are doing exactly what the Obama Bots did, worshiping the personality. Really sad that otherwise fairly intelligent people can be so blind.

To be fair, I voted for Trump, only because I was voting against Shitlerly. I did have some better expectations of him. I told my wife the night of the election that before the first term was over, many would be disappointed. I was right, just did not expect it to be this soon. If this continues, his support will slip, quickly. I don't think his reelection is going to be the shoe in many had thought.

I just worry what kind of shit will be rubbed in our faces next ?
