New Congressional Report Shows How Lois Lerner Lied To Congress On Targeting Conservative Groups

New Congressional Report Shows How Lois Lerner Lied To Congress On Targeting Conservative Groups

Hence the reason she’s been pleading the Fifth.
A GOP-led House panel Tuesday released an extensive report that attempts to show former top Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner lied to Congress about her involvement in the targeting of conservative groups seeking tax exempt status.
Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said the 141-page report “offers detailed evidence about steps she took to crack down on organizations that exercised their Constitutional rights to free political speech.” [...]
Among the findings in the report:
— Lerner, in emails to other IRS officials, wrote about ways to highlight the agency’s scrutiny ofTea Party applicants, despite secrecy laws, by provoking groups to challenge IRS rulings in a court case.
— She called for a Washington, D.C.-based, “multi-tier review” for Tea Party groups applying for tax exempt status. “A D.C. IRS employee said this level of scrutiny had no precedent,” the report notes.
— Lerner references “the fabulously rich and hugely influential” Koch brothers, who are GOP donors, in asserting that the agency needed to cautiously conduct a “project” scrutinizing groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax exempt status. The code references the tax exempt category conservative and Tea Party groups were requesting from the IRS.
— Lerner broke IRS rules by using her personal email account to handle protected taxpayer information.
— Lerner expressed concern that the Supreme Court ruling leading to the increase of 501(c)(4) tax-exempt groups would hurt Democratic senators seeking re-election in 2012. The IRS was expected to fix the problem, Lerner wrote.

You gotta wonder if The House Oversight Committee is going to discover who ordered This one too, . . . .

House Investigates Claims That IRS Seized (60) Millions Of Medical Records

"The complaint says records involve 10 million Americans including every state judge in California, as well as "prominent citizens in the world of entertainment, business and government, from all walks of life."

Why would the Obama IRS want the Medical Records of Every State Judge in California?

Say what you will about California, despite Congressman Issa-R winning election, the place is Not a Republican State.

These Judges are predominantly their own partisans.
