Democrat Elijah Cummings Looking at a Possible Five Years in Federal Prison
It seems like Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings has been bad. : Rep. Darrell Issa wants to know why his staff was asking questions from the IRS, why these questions weren’t disclosed and why Cummings denied these actions when asked about them.
“Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional agency scrutiny, communication records between your staff and IRS officials — which you did not disclose to Majority Members or staff — indicates otherwise,” the letter to Cummings states. “As the Committee is scheduled to consider a resolution holding Ms. Lerner, a participant in responding to your communications that you failed to disclose, in contempt of Congress, you have an obligation to fully explain your staff’s undisclosed contacts with the IRS.”
Gateway Pundit says Cummings is looking at five years if convicted.
Personally, I’ll believe this when I see it:
Whoever, with intent to avoid, evade, prevent, or obstruct compliance, in whole or in part, with any civil investigative demand duly and properly made under the Antitrust Civil Process Act,: willfully withholds, misrepresents, removes from any place, conceals, covers up, destroys, mutilates, alters, or by other means falsifies any documentary material, answers to written interrogatories, or oral testimony, which is the subject of such demand; or attempts to do so or solicits another to do so; orWhoever corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication influences, obstructs, or impedes or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede the due and proper administration of the law: under which any pending proceeding is being had before any department or agency of the United States, or the due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any inquiry or investigation is being had by either House, or any committee of either House or any joint committee of the Congress–…Shall be fined under this title, imprisoned: not more than 5 years: or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section: 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both.
I suppose it’s possible, but let’s face it. We have yet to see any action taken on Benghazi, let alone action on the IRS scandal.
I don’t have much faith. Do you?
