NO CONTEMPT CHARGES FOR LERNER…



Of course. The DOJ has notified Speaker John Boehner that it will NOT be pursuing contempt charges against Lois Lerner:

POLITICO – The Justice Department will not seek criminal contempt charges against former IRS official Lois Lerner, the central figure in a scandal that erupted over whether the tax agency improperly targeted conservative political groups.

Ronald Machen, the former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, told House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in a seven-page letter this week that he would not bring a criminal case to a grand jury over Lerner’s refusal to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in March 2014. The House approved a criminal contempt resolution against Lerner in May 2014, and Machen’s office has been reviewing the issue since then.

Lerner and other IRS officials, however, are still under investigation by the FBI for the tea party targeting matter — which is a separate probe entirely.

This DOJ will never investigate Lois Lerner for any wrong doing, much less charge her with something. After all, then they’d have to indict the entire White House and probably themselves.
