IRS to Give Up Lerner Emails
All it took was a contempt charge.
All it took was holding Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress and the IRS suddenly agreed to turn over all of her emails to a House investigative panel. IRS commissioner John Koskinen had said it might take years to produce them, leading to a threat of a contempt charge for him too. Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) said, “While it is good that we are finally getting these emails, it should never have taken this long.” Still, he said, “The Committee will thoroughly review the Lerner documents and follow them wherever they may lead.” Where it may lead is to reveal again that the administration finds conservative political groups to be more of a threat than, say, jihadis in Benghazi.
