New Lois Lerner Emails Revealed – And They’re Shocking!


Remember when President Obama proclaimed to Jon Stewart that “The truth of the matter is that there was not some big conspiracy” at the IRS?

Remember this quote from the president regarding the targeting of conservative organizations?

“Not even a smidgeon of corruption.”

Turns out there was a whole lot more than a smidgeon of corruption at the IRS under Lois Lerner. We already know that she scrutinized the tax-exempt status of groups with conservative titles, such as “tea party” or “patriot,” in their names. We even know that she tried to have conservative groups criminally prosecuted by illegally sharing their confidential information.

But the hatred was also personal for Ms. Lerner.

Newly released emails show just how deep the hatred of conservatives and Republicans ran for her.

Politico has reported that Lerner, during the investigation into whether or not she targeted conservative groups, was emailing friends telling them Republicans were “evil and dishonest” hate-mongerers.

Watch the report below …

via Politico:

At the height of the scandal over the IRS’ handling of political nonprofits, Lois Lerner privately let loose at her Republican tormentors, saying she invoked the Fifth Amendment because they had been “evil and dishonest” and accusing them of “hate mongering.”

A POLITICO examination of thousands of pages of emails and other material recently released by the Senate Finance Committee found previously unreported comments from Lerner, the central figure in the controversy, on everything from the inability of career IRS agents to handle “the sensitive stuff” to her views on the fiscal cliff.

When she was under investigation by Congress, she offered a blistering critique of her inquisitors. In a March 6, 2014, email, Lerner told a friend: “They called me back to testify on the IRS ‘scandal,’ and I too[k] the 5th again because they had been so evil and dishonest in my lawyer’s dealings with them.”

If you’re thinking – well, that’s not such a big deal because it happened after the investigation began, and perhaps she was resentful – it’s important to remember this is in line with her wild thinking previously.

Other emails have shown Lerner calling conservatives “crazies” and “assholes,” more dangerous to America than terrorists.

Peter Roskam (R-IL) blasted Lerner over the latest email reveal.

The emails are “a sad attempt by Lois Lerner to deflect blame for her egregious abuse of power,” he stated.  “The only victims in this scenario are the Americans who were unfairly targeted by the IRS for their personal religious and political beliefs.”
