Dear Conservative,

The IRS targeting scandal goes much deeper than anyone imagined!

Last week, it was revealed that Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Government Oversight Committee, was instrumental in urging Lois Lerner to target conservative non-profit groups. This explains a lot, considering how Elijah Cummings was doing everything in his power to stop the investigation!

Remember all of his grandstanding and accusations that Republicans were on a “witch hunt?” Well, it turns out that his bombastic objections to the House Government Oversight Committee’s investigation stem from his own involvement in the scandal! He instructed the IRS to go after one of the most prominent Tea Party groups, True the Vote, and was trying to do everything in his power to stop his involvement from coming to light!

The top Democrat on the House Committee charged with investigating the IRS was actually participating in the scandal! Talk about a conflict of interest…

Well, the next shoe has dropped. Recently released emails obtained by Judicial Watch now prove that not only was Lois Lerner coordinating with Democrat lawmakers, but she was also in talks with Eric Holder’s Department of Justice over how to prosecute these Tea Party groups for exercising their First Amendment rights!

Tell Congress it MUST hold Lois Lerner in contempt and throw her in jail! Eric Holder’s corrupt Department of Justice cannot be trusted to handle the case so Congress must act on its own!

This is another bombshell that is going to blow the whole IRS scandal wide open!

Emails show that just two days before the IRS scandal went public and Ms. Lerner was forced to apologize for targeting conservative groups, she was actively coordinating with the DOJ to bring federal charges against these tea party organizations!

On May 8, 2013, Lois Lerner sent an email to Nikole C. Flax, who was then former IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller's Chief of Staff. The email detailed her discussion with the DOJ on the possibility of going after conservatives with criminal charges…

“I got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ ... He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folks could talk to about Sen. Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement cases about applicants who "lied" on their 1024s --saying they weren't planning on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible political expenditures. DOJ is feeling like it needs to respond, but want to talk to the right folks at IRS to see whether there are impediments from our side and what, if any damage this might do to IRS programs. I told him that sounded like we might need several folks from IRS.”

The following day, the IRS Commissioner’s Chief of Staff responded, “I think we should do it.”

The evidence is crystal clear! Not only did Lois Lerner collaborate with a sitting Congressman to harass Tea Party groups applying for a tax-exempt status, but she was also coordinating with the DOJ and Federal Election Commission to prosecute those groups that were already exempt!

Every week, new evidence comes to light proving just how scummy Lois Lerner is. And with each passing week, documents are revealed showing that the IRS scandal stretches even further up the chain of command within the Obama administration.

Remember when Lois Lerner told the country that the scandal was nothing but a few rogue IRS agents in Cincinnati? How laughable is that!?

Not only have we proved that Lois Lerner was at the heart of the scandal, but now we have evidence linking a ranking Democrat Congressman and Obama’s Department of Justice to the scandal as well!

There is no doubt in my mind now that this scandal goes all the way to the top! A committee has already recommended that Lois Lerner be held in Contempt of Congress, however Congress is taking its sweet time getting around to the vote! We cannot afford to wait any longer!

Tell Congress it MUST hold Lois Lerner in contempt and throw her in jail! Eric Holder’s corrupt Department of Justice cannot be trusted to handle the case so Congress must act on its own!

We cannot afford to wait any longer!

However, Congress simply cannot vote to hold Lois Lerner in contempt only to turn the case over to the DOJ. These released emails show an obvious conflict of interest within the Department of Justice. The DOJ is supposed to hold all parties equal under the law, however the evidence shows that the Justice Department abused its power to target and prosecute the President’s political opposition!

Just last week, the House Ways and Means Committee referred Lois Lerner to the DOJ for prosecution. Are they insane? Do they really think that Eric Holder will prosecute one of his own?

Remember when Congress held Eric Holder in contempt, only to tell him to prosecute himself? Not all that successful, was it?

No, Congress must handle Lois Lerner on its own! The Supreme Court has already ruled in the past that the Constitution of the United States gives Congress the authority to jail anyone held in contempt for the remainder of the Congressional session. That means that when Congress holds Lois Lerner in contempt, it can throw her in the Capitol Jail until next January!

The evidence is clearer now than ever before. It shows that top Democrats and Obama officials were conspiring together to not only prevent Tea Party groups from obtaining a tax exempt status but also to prosecute those that already had one!

This is a textbook case of tyranny and abuse of power. We have evidence that two branches of government were conspiring to silence their political opposition and yet Congress still does nothing?

Every second that Lois Lerner is allowed to breathe fresh air is a slap in the face to all of the brave patriots that the Obama administration has silenced over the past few years!

Tell Congress that Lois Lerner must be held in contempt, she must be jailed immediately, and that Congress MUST turn its sights on the rest of the corrupt Obama administration for its role in the scandal!

Your Brother in Arms,
