IRS Claims It Will Turn Over Lois Lerner Emails

We're not holding our breath waiting for it to happen but the IRS has announced that it will turn over all of Lois Lerner's emails...

(Washington Examiner) Internal Revenue Service officials have agreed to turn over all of former agency official Lois Lerner's emails after the House of Representatives voted to hold her in contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with an investigation into the agency's targeting of Tea Party groups.

"While it is good that we are finally getting these emails, it should never have taken this long," House Ways and Means Committee chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., said Thursday afternoon. "The agency is finally doing what is right and hopefully this is the last of the delays. It is almost a year to the day since Lois Lerner apologized' for the IRS's targeting of conservative groups, and we need to get to the bottom of this."

The House voted Wednesday to hold Lerner in contempt. "The matter now goes to the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia. A grand jury will review the charges, although it's uncertain if, or how, the Justice Department will respond," the Washington Examiner's Sean Lengell reported. "Lerner faces up to a year in jail and fines up to $100,000 if found guilty of contempt of Congress, a criminal misdemeanor."
