Lois Lerner may face six years in jail

After months of lies, obfuscation, silence, and misdirection, President Barack Obama’s claim that there was not even a “smidgeon” of corruption in his Internal Revenue Service has proven to be false. Lois Lerner’s attorney has admitted Lerner has destroyed evidence buying her more jail time.

It’s been a long time coming. Originally, Lois Lerner, head of the Exempt Organizations Unit of the IRS had appeared to be cooperating with congressional investigators, but then she proceeded to plead the Fifth.
Since that time, she was held in Contempt of Congress for refusal to testify further, with possible penalties including a significant fine and up to a year in prison. Following that, the IRS released thousands of pages of documents related to Lerner’s targeting of conservative groups, including an email written by Lerner detailing her desire to hide information from congressional oversight.

Now a senior IRS attorney has admitted that data from Lerner’s Blackberry was “intentionally destroyed after Congress had begun its probe,” according to a report from RedState. Thomas Kane, Deputy Assistant Chief Counsel for the IRS wrote in response to a Judicial Watch lawsuit that the Blackberry had been “wiped clean” and “removed as scrap” in June, 2012–after her summons to an interview with congressional investigators.

It would appear that Lerner could be looking at six or more years in prison if convicted of her crimes–and possible a lot more. Justice demands that Lerner should pay for her violation of the public trust, but evidence has already demonstrated that Washington officials were fully aware of her activities. She should not pay alone. In fact, if Lerner were to provide investigators with information about who ordered that conservative groups be targeted–if she were to name names–it might earn her a lighter sentence.

A lighter sentence for Lerner would be worth knowing WHO is pulling the strings to destroy Americans who care about the Constitution and who fight the spread of socialistic disease.
