Jim Jordan Attacks Justice Department For Not Bringing Criminal Charges Against Lois Lerner
Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH), has a serious problem with Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) failing to bring charges against Lois Lerner for her blatant targeting of conservative organizations seeking tax-exempt status.
Not only that, but the attorney assigned to investigate the case was Barbara Bosserman, a major contributor to President Obama’s election campaign! This is like Iran investigating itself!!
Jordan, in speaking with Fox News’ Chris Wallace regarding the DOJ’s refusal to bring charges against Lerner said, “That is just flat our wrong, in my judgement.” You bet it is. Who among us could get away with something like this?
Not the Center for Medical Progress who privately conducted an investigation into the activities of Planned Parenthood, a TAX-FUNDED organization, breaking the law selling baby body parts, but, Lerner and the powerhouse IRS can use OUR tax money to target law-abiding citizens, tax-payers who pay her salary, and harass them, then smugly walk away without even a slap on the hands.
“Here’s a lady who systematically and for a sustained period of time targeted people for exercising their most fundamental rights, their First Amendment free speech rights,” according to Representative Jordan, and there is nothing that can be done about it.
However, Jordan isn’t done with the DOJ just yet.
Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, is set to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, tomorrow, October 28th, and Jordan plans to grill her about how two-years ago the Inspector General found wrong-doing, but along comes she and her minions, only to find, “…no evidence than any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution,” as stated in a letter to the investigation committee.
Jordan wants to know, “…why they could arrive at this kind of conclusion, when I think all the facts point to someone was involved in criminal activity, and I think it was Lois Lerner.”
Unfortunately, “they” can arrive at the decision they did, simply because-they-can. The Obama Administration has proven itself, time and again, to be above the law. How do they get away with this?
Because we the people are idiots and do not learn the first time around and elect him twice.
