What the House Oversight Committee should ask Lois Lerner’s Empty Chair

By Ben Barrack
**SHOEBAT EXCLUSIVE**

The Department of (IN)Justice under Barack Obama and Eric Holder is not going to prosecute former IRS Exempt Organizations Director, Lois Lerner. Period. In an interview exchange between Fox News Channel’s Bill Hemmer and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who sits on the House Oversight Committee, Gowdy’s frustration with this reality was palpable.

If the American people are going to get justice in the IRS scandal, it will not come from the (IN)Justice Department. Period. It will come from the collective outrage of the American people themselves. There has to be something so outrageous, so unbelievably criminal, that it will catch the attention of the American people as much as Phil Robertson’s dissing by A&E did. It just so happens that such a scandal sits right behind a curtain, eagerly waiting for Congress to peel back that curtain. It can do so on March 5th, whether Lerner shows up or not.

If she doesn’t, the House Oversight Committee should one-up Clint Eastwood and talk to a name plate and a bottle of water, in addition to an empty chair. Gowdy, Chairman Darrel Issa (R-CA), and Member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) should ask that empty chair why its non-occupant granted illegal tax-exempt status to a man who is tied to terrorism, and who just so happens to be the brother of the President of the United States; we have been informed that at least one person in Gowdy’s office is aware of this scandal. On February 20th, two letters were sent to him, Issa, Jordan, and several other members of Congress that lay it all out.

In an article for the Washington Examiner, Mark Tapscott likened Lerner to Webb Hubbell, a former Clinton insider who fell on the sword by going to jail and clamming up. Tapscott seems to think Lerner will do the same if faced with similar choices:

The only way out of the trap is for Lerner to give up somebody important higher-up. That path may lead straight to the Obama White House. There is no reason to think she will do that, based on her professional history. Look for her to follow the Hubbell example.

Tapscott may be right if all Congress is willing to focus on is the targeting of conservative groups by Lerner and IRS intimidation.

However, if just one of its members – JUST ONE – introduces Malik Obama into the equation, instead of likening Lerner to Hubbell, we can start likening her to James McCord, which we did last June.

Who is James McCord?

Here’s an adequately succinct description, via History.com:

A former CIA officer, McCord was one of the five burglars arrested at the Watergate complex on June 15, 1972. He was convicted on eight counts of conspiracy, burglary and wiretapping, spending two months in prison. In March 1973 McCord wrote a letter implicating White House officials in the cover-up. He later published a book about his role in the scandal.

Obviously, a primary difference is that unlike McCord, Lerner is not going to be prosecuted or convicted of anything under Holder. However, as Gowdy said in his interview with Hemmer, she could be arrested and “incarcerated” by the Capitol Police if found in contempt of Congress.

Unlike both McCord and Hubbell, Lerner appears to have done something far worse than either of those men combined. Her signature is at the bottom of a 501(c)(3) approval letter of someone who has alleged ties to terrorists, terror groups, a State Sponsor of Terrorism, and a man wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity. If Lerner acted alone in granting this status, she may be complicit in aiding and abetting an enemy combatant while committing the felony of backdating the approval 38 months.

That the recipient of this status is the self-professed “close” brother to President Barack Obama certainly does add to the sweetness of the scandal pot. In fact, this scandal more than qualifies as potentially the biggest in the history of the United States. As such, the Department of (IN)Justice could be trumped by the court of public opinion.

The House Oversight Committee is best positioned to do this… on March 5th.

Here is the exchange between Gowdy and Hemmer. Gowdy, a former prosecutor, has mastered the art of hilariously angry humor. The lines just roll of this guy’s tongue:

PLEASE CONSIDER A MONTHLY OR ONE-TIME DONATION TO RESCUE CHRISTIANS.

  • While the focus of the investigation into this IRS Scandal is mainly on Lois Lerner, there is the related and strong possibility that she did not act alone. Immunity would mute Lois Lerner from coming clean with the Truth, not just of her actions, but of who else was involved in the knowledge that she was illegally stepping out of bounds by granting and expediting a retroactive approval to the BHO Foundation headed up by the president’s brother, Malik Obama. For starters, the IRS office officials in Ogden, Utah who, in June and July 2011, accepted and processed the retroactive 990-EZ Forms for the years 2008, 2009 and 2010 that Lois Lerner approved should also be called in on this. Additionally, Lois Lerner may have consulted with others within the Administration prior to giving her stamp of approval to issue the 501(c)(3) in question. The investigation trail should not just stop with Lois Lerner but lead to all others involved in this one of many scandals that may be heading to another blatant cover-up by the “transparent” Administration.

    Who is Malik’s “Brother’s Keeper”?

    As nice as it sounds, who is in control over there? Obama is with his keepers, doubt Holder will do anything at all, he knows his head will be rolling down the path the same as Hilary, Obama, Kerry, sad to say, the list of illegla activity that comes from the WH is very long, and for the first time in US History, you may have more Politicians that Murders sitting in cells, that would be if there was such a thing as Justice in America now. Obama and his cronies more than likely already have plans with Jarrett to get out of Dodge as soon as they see the hangmans noose being made
