GOP Congressman: ‘We Just Filed a Resolution Directing the Sergeant-at-Arms to Arrest Lois Lerner for Contempt’


Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) announced on Thursday that he has filed a resolution directing the House sergeant-at-arms to “arrest Lois Lerner for contempt of Congress” over the IRS targeting scandal.

Stockman said in a statement that asking the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute Lerner for “admittedly illegal activity” is a “joke.” Instead, the Republican said it is up to the U.S. House to “uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the President.”

Under the proposed resolution, Lerner would be held in a Washington, D.C., jail and would be given access to an attorney and all her constitutional rights.

    Somebody needs to be held accountable, I don’t think Lois wants to be that someone. Once she is in a cage I think she will sing like a canary and that will lead directly to Holder, Obama and others who have conspired in criminal activities. I don’t think it is just blocking the Tea Party but at least $43 million dollars of tax payer money was given to so called undocumented workers at just five addresses, two in Atlanta, one in Tennessee and two in California. How hard would it be for the Justice Dept. or FBI to find out who got this money and get it back? Assuming of course they wanted to. Go to the Bank(s) where the checks were cashed, look at the videos on that date and you get $43 million of the taxpayer’s money back. But Holder, Obama and Lois are all in this together, that is why she took the Fifth, not about Tea Party applications being blocked.

    I wonder if she’ll throw O under the bus–probably not–he’ll threaten her with loss of her retirement and these people go even further than that so she might not—BUT—if Killary gets in a bind over Benghazi she WILL throw his azz under the bus so fast it will make his head spin–to save HER azz!!

    Lois Lerner should have been arrested the second time she plead the fifth and before they cooked up the “lost emails story”!! Issa has been way tooooo show on this and given these azz holes way too much time–every time they didn’t do what they were told to do that subpoena would be given out real fast—one week—not another YEAR before they say they will then don’t then told again to release them and they don’t then another year goes by now they are gone kinda cr@p!!

  • There’s a whole bunch of other criminals hanging out in DC, can we get the rest of them?

    We can only hope and pray that this comes to pass. This woman should be tried for her acts against this country, i.e., lying to the Congress/Senate, etc., and sent straight to prison. God only knows what else she has done to harm America!!!!

    If they start charging people BO is in big trouble. The wheels are already coming off.

    A cause for celebration! Now they need to go after the rest of the seditious thugs in this administration.
    DON’T SLOW THE ROLL!

    Unfortunately obumer will just pardon anyone connected to him while he’s still occupying the Oval Office

    1. francesca9 says:

      they still have to serve some time before he can pardon them and if he is in jail or impeached, he can do nothing!

    Lock her up and she will cooperate. Oh, and after her conviction, she loses her tax-payer funded retirement salary and benefits.

    The sooner the better. C’mon Lois, snitch out 0bama.

      I doubt she’ll see jail, and she’ll never go against Barry. She wants to keep breathing!

        bout sick of this Amos & Andy BS…. is Holder the kingfisher … or just one of the Jamokes…

        1. gvette says:

          Holder
          is just one of Barry’s radicals he surrounds himself with. As you’ve watched, he
          won’t do anything, to anyone in this administration. Under normal circumstances,
          most would be behind bars. Like you, we’re all getting tired of it. If you want
          to kill some time, just read the bios of all of Barry’s people. It’ll make you
          sick!

            Jamokes have set this country back 150 years…
