Amnesty Smidgeon – DOJ Ends IRS Investigation of Lois Lerner, No Charges…

“Based on the evidence developed in this investigation and the recommendation of experienced career prosecutors and supervising attorneys at the Department, we are closing our investigation and will not seek any criminal charges.”

Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik

WASHINGTON (AP) — No IRS official would face criminal charges arising from the political controversy over the processing of applications for tax-exempt status, the Justice Department announced Friday.

In a letter to members of Congress, the department said that while investigators had found “mismanagement, poor judgment and institutional inertia,” there was no evidence of a crime.

“We found no evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution,” the letter stated.

The department also announced that Lois Lerner, who headed the division that processes applications for tax-exempt status at the time, would not face any charges.

A firestorm erupted more than two years ago with the release of an inspector general’s audit that said IRS agents had improperly singled out tea party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status during the 2010 and 2012 elections.

The disclosure set off investigations by the Justice Department and multiple congressional committees.

The House voted to hold Lerner in contempt of Congress last year after she refused to answer questions at two House Oversight Committee hearings. She has since retired. (read more)

The alternative to LE is anarchy and societal collapse. You know there is no possible way to bring all criminals to justice due to limits of investigative manpower, resources, and the likeliness of successful prosecution. Prosecuting Lois Lerner would be satisfying to all those harmed, but it would be a political circus. If convicted, she would be pardoned because whether he instructed her directly or not, she was doing his bidding. Lois Lerner is a baby bottom feeder: what she has pooped, she will eat. There are bigger fish in the undercurrent. If you live and work in a blue state, perhaps you could move your family to a red state or rural area. Above all, please stay safe and thanks again.

And puts that KA-CFO in charge of chasing all of those smug, inert institutionals.

    Thing is, we have to get a huge turn-out for the primary vote and so empower Mr. Trump that in no way can the GOPe force another “Bush on Reagan”.

      Psalm 109
      1
      My God, whom I praise,
      do not remain silent,
      2
      for people who are wicked and deceitful
      have opened their mouths against me;
      they have spoken against me with lying tongues.
      3
      With words of hatred they surround me;
      they attack me without cause.
      4
      In return for my friendship they accuse me,
      but I am a man of prayer.
      5
      They repay me evil for good,
      and hatred for my friendship.

      6
      Appoint someone evil to oppose my enemy;
      let an accuser stand at his right hand.
      7
      When he is tried, let him be found guilty,
      and may his prayers condemn him.
      8
      May his days be few;
      may another take his place of leadership.
      9
      May his children be fatherless
      and his wife a widow.
      10
      May his children be wandering beggars;
      may they be driven[a] from their ruined homes.
      11
      May a creditor seize all he has;
      may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
      12
      May no one extend kindness to him
      or take pity on his fatherless children.
      13
      May his descendants be cut off,
      their names blotted out from the next generation.
      14
      May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the Lord;
      may the sin of his mother never be blotted out.
      15
      May their sins always remain before the Lord,
      that he may blot out their name from the earth.

      16
      For he never thought of doing a kindness,
      but hounded to death the poor
      and the needy and the brokenhearted.
      17
      He loved to pronounce a curse—
      may it come back on him.
      He found no pleasure in blessing—
      may it be far from him.
      18
      He wore cursing as his garment;
      it entered into his body like water,
      into his bones like oil.
      19
      May it be like a cloak wrapped about him,
      like a belt tied forever around him.
      20
      May this be the Lord’s payment to my accusers,
      to those who speak evil of me.

    • Yeah, when are we going to wake up? Obama actually SUED THE STATE OF ARIZONA because we were enforcing our immigration laws. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see we are right in the middle of a coup d’état and the whole system is broken. A leader has arisen, Donald J. Trump and he sees it too. You can know for 100% sure if billionaires who don’t need the job, suddenly rise up from the comforts of their rich life to help America, there must be something very wrong!

      Now, in the meantime we CAN take our petition to the LORD God! He will hear and He will help us and if we think we don’t like the lies, just think how He feels. There’s one verse that says “God is angry with the wicked every day.” So we are in good company!

      coup d’état:
      also known simply as a coup (/ˌkuː/), or an overthrow, is the sudden and illegal seizure of a state, usually instigated by a small group of the existing government establishment to depose the established regime and replace it with a new ruling body. A coup d’état is considered successful when the usurpers establish their dominance.

    Pledges from Ryan would mean less than nothing to me. A couple of days ago when he was making deals and pledges, he said he wouldn’t run if he didn’t get the Freedom Caucus endorsement. Took only a couple of days for him to break that pledge. Why would any other pledge he took last any longer than he wants it to? Plus, from what I read he was saying no amnesty while Obama is president. To me, that means with Hilary, Trump, or whoever as president, he will be back to pushing amnesty.

    The DOJ essentially took the position that since Lois Lerner “got caught” breaking the law and was forced into retirement, that was enough punishment. Clearly this was a political decision. However, I would rather have B.O. give her a presidential pardon instead of the DOJ playing politics with the law. Everyone knows the presidential pardons are political in nature, but having the DOJ to do the dirty work further degrades the institution as a partisan arm of the president in power.
