Haphazardly using the word “democracy” is dangerous because it implies that the potential goodness of democratic processes requires them to be continuously expanded.

Every time DOJ is mention my PB goes up! There has been no “Justice” in 6 years! If there was a DOJ a couple of Panther’s would have done time! If there was a DOJ, ‘knockout game’ participants would be doing time for hate crimes! If there was a DOJ, there would be people jailed for the IRS scandels. If there was a DOJ …………..There is no Justice! We now live under a socialist regime! Justice is what THEY deem to be so!

Obama appointed deeply corrupt, Eric, the commie racist, Holder for this very reason. Holder’s mission, to shield leftist criminals, to turn a blind eye toward black-on-white crime, to facilitate the illegal sale and transfer of assault weapons to Mexican drug lords that resulted in the murder of an American border guard along with hundreds of Mexican citizens, to rig elections by suing states for enforcing existing state and federal immigration laws, and for suing states that attempted to enact voter I.D. laws. This list goes on.

Go after her staff at the time. You can bet that she won’t be shielded.
Than arrest her ass. She can plead the fifth from the courthouse at her trial for treason.

DOJ won’t prosecute one of their own and are making sure Lerner doesn’t speak about Barry’s brothers terrorist tax exempt org that she approved. What happened to Trey, Issa, etc remaining silent? Signs of full blown MB infiltration.

Can Congress call the DOJ investigators? They can’t plead the 5th…and since she is blabbing to DOJ, does that mean no atty/client privelege?

DOJ is the problem. They must be the ones advising her to plead the 5th. Jail isn’t good enough. Impeach Holder or better yet have him go directly to jail, too. Do not pass Go and do not collect $200

The problem with the D0j is that they are yet another arm of the progre$$ive movement a foot. They are shaping the investigation by speaking with our illustrious tax group first to set the stage for the questions asked of those hurt by the stonewall of the same group toward the “tea party” groups. The fix is in and there is nothing that can be done at this point. The only recourse is to slap her in jail for contempt of Congress, especially since she choses to speak with the D0j. Waiting for our representatives to follow through with that! I think orange just might be her color.

Spin, spin, spin, how much more does anyone need to know? Less lawyers doing their thing, more common sense action. Shouldn’t be so complicated, isn’t. Hold her in contempt until she talks. Possible deal after that. Was that hard?

Lerner talking to DOJ investigators is similar to a fox that got into the hen house being interviewed by another fox! That doesn’t make sense, but that’s what we’re stuck with….obama’s corrupt administration!
And it is CORRUPT regardless of what the imperial president tells “60 Minutes.”

Greta has been doing a great job reporting this. Last night she really went to town on this committee for not exercising their powers. Why won’t congress compelling her to speak? What is taking them so long to get the records of emails from Lerner and the IRS? Why aren’t they using their powers to force the IRS to give up the goods? On and on. She grilled Idea on this the other night. She and Megyn Kelly have been excellent.

She knows something illegal was done. Why else would she plead the fifth? This isn’t a conspiracy, it’s being done right out in front of our nose. Their giving her advice/colluding. And don’t give me this crap about she doesn’t know anything, she’s just delaying. The proof is there. If you think that this is all just a show, then you haven’t been paying attention!!! This is truly an example (many, many examples) of government officials targeting it’s citizenry because their political standing is not in line with the status quo

*Newsflash*
Absolutely nothing will happen to her. Due in large measure to the following:
Issa capitulates and apologizes to Cummings for shutting his mic off.
Boehner refused from the outset to appoint a special counsel and remains largely silent about this and other corruption and scandals.
Holder won’t hold anybody on the left accountable for supporting his boss and Tyranny.
Holder himself has been found in contempt and thumbs his nose at the feckless committee who hasn’t the nads to impeach him.
The fix is in with the Lib media….i.e. crickets about this case.
If she’s arrested, she won’t be charged by the DOJ and even if she was, she’d get a presidential pardon from the guy shes sworn to protect by being mum in the first place.
Any action against her serves to impede the agenda of “fundamental transformation”.
If Obama had a sister…
Oh the heck with it…at this point, what difference does it make!

Issa is a member of my generation. Sprung from parents and grandparents who grew up when separation of the races was normal, we, the children coming of age in the sixties, learned to tip toe around the new, angry blacks. When they got upset, we learned to be patient, when they were arrogant, we forgave them when they burned the cities and looted the stores we felt sorry for them and rebuilt schools, provided jobs and recruited them for universities, We admired them when they struck out for equality. We simply hadn’t discovered the the African American revolution does not have an objective. It’s more like an eternal flame. Issa is the kind of man who is self-conditioned to avoid ANY possibility of being thought of as a racist and he will go to any lengths to protect his image and self image. Even if Issa thinks Cummings is a… Read more »

Hey Issa, why aren’t you demanding that this be handled by the criminal division of the DOJ rather than the Civil Rights division? Oh wait, never mind it would be better if I check with J. Christian Adams. The corrupt are investigating the corrupt. What a great plan if you are one of the many corrupt.

J. Christian Adams had it right – Dept. of Injustice. I guess it really doesn’t matter which dept. of the DOJ handles it, the end result will be the same. “Not a smidgeon of corruption found” because the boss said so.

Four separate Supreme Court rulings have confirmed the right of Congress to incarcerate Americans for contempt, although it hasn’t been done in more than 75 years.

A July 2007 Congressional Research Service Report spells out the process: ‘The individual is brought before the House or Senate by the sergeant at arms, tried at the bar of the body, and can be imprisoned in the Capitol jail.’

In June 2012 the full House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt after he refused to hand over documents relating to the botched Operation Fast and Furious gun-running sting.

Holder wasn’t arrested, largely because he heads the federal law enforcement agency that would be responsible for taking him into custody.

That’s very interesting. So does this mean the sergeant at arms can take her into custody if they find her in contempt, but it would be the DOJ to prosecute? What happens in the meantime if they don’t prosecute? Does Lois stay imprisoned at the Capitol jail until they prosecute? I’d love to see Lois and Holder both in the Capitol jail. Yeah, I know it won’t happen, but it would sure be a hoot if the House would do it.

Leave it to Holder to make sure that Lerner talks to the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department. Is that because she’s white and Holder’s black? Or is it that somebody else who is (half) black instigated this illegality?

The Department Of Justice is an oxymoron. I believe that concerning Executive branch Departments/Agencies/other federal organizations, we must fix the ones we need, and throw the bulk of them away. Power corrupts. Too much power in DC is not a good thing.
