In the ongoing investigation into the IRS targeting scandal, a series of emails have just been released which show that Lois Lerner, the former IRS Director of Exempt Organizations, was in direct talks with Eric Holder's Justice Department to open criminal prosecutions against Lerner's victims.
This scandal keeps getting worse with every new revelation. The formerly authorized Justice Department investigation into the IRS' dirty tactics has now been completely compromised.
Asking Eric Holder to fairly investigate and prosecute this scandal is the equivalent of asking the fox to guard the hen-house. Read more about the shocking new emails exchanged between Lerner and Holder here.
Even though Holder had already appointed an Obama campaign donor to head up this supposed "investigation" there was still some hope of fairness.
The only way to get the truth in this crime is if a special prosecutor is appointed to investigate -- one with no ties to Washington, D.C. whatsoever.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says, "The Department of Justice's credibility to investigate the IRS scandal is gone. We need an independent special prosecutor!"
The newly-discovered emails, which were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, were sent between Lerner and prosecutors at the Justice Department.
In these emails, Lerner asked the DOJ to open criminal investigations into the exact same conservative Christian and Tea Party organizations she was already targeting at the IRS.
The plan, as described in Lerner’s emails, was to unleash the full power of the Executive Branch (from the IRS, the Department of Justice and the Federal Election Commission) upon the heads of the political and religious opponents of the Obama regime.
They sought to destroy the First Amendment rights of American citizens for opposing the far-left agenda that Obama and the Democrats have unleashed on the country.
This new special prosecutor cannot have ANY ties whatsoever to the corrupt political machine in Washington, D.C. Find out how you can help get a new prosecutor appointed for the IRS scandal investigation here.
Americans must demand the following criteria from any special investigator who Congress appoints:
- He or she must not have any affiliation or past employment history with the federal government.
- He or she must not be a member of a public sector labor union.
- He or she must not have contributed to a political party in which a member has been held in Contempt of Congress within the past 5 years.
Without those criteria in place, they will just appoint another "insider" who will cover up the truth.
Obama promised on the campaign trail in 2008 that he would have the most open and transparent administration in history. This was a bald-faced lie!
They say a fish rots from the head and in this case, Obama has held sway over one of the most corrupt regimes in American history. Almost the entire Executive Branch has been turned into a weapon designed to silence conservative Christians.
This corrupt Executive Branch needs a legal cleansing from top to bottom!
However, that will not happen unless Americans work together and demand an independent special prosecutor and demand that this prosecutor immediately convene a grand jury. Bring on the handcuffs for the Obama regime!
If you are disgusted with the corruption coming out of Washington, D.C. on Obama's watch regarding the IRS scandal, you can help by demanding Congress appoint a special prosecutor with subpoena powers here. Please also share this link with everyone you know so that they can help too.
