The accusation is going to be of three crimes relating to the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups seeking tax exempt status
The House Ways and Means Committee are looking forward to the voting which will take place this week and which will be forwarded to the Justice Department and will request for the persuit of criminal charges against former IRS employee Lois Lerner who is an official at the center of Republican probes of the matter. The same committee is going to forward a letter to the Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday which is going to shed some light on the crimes of Lerner. According to a Republican staffer, he will be accused of three crimes relating to the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups seeking tax exempt status.
Tracing back to the events which led to all this mayhem, it all began in May when Lois Lerner admitted that the agency had given extra scrutiny to tea party groups. Spilling the beans in this regard cost a lot of agency employees their jobs. This also included its commissioner, and prompted a series of congressional investigations.
However House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa had separate plans to hold a contempt vote against the former exempt organizations division head on Thursday. The congressional efforts are all inclined towards getting to know what happened at the IRS and Lerner apparently has become the focus of all this. As of now, the Republicans have been accusing her of sharing private taxpayer data and are also obsessing over the Citizens United Supreme Court case.
