Lerner Met with DOJ Month Before 2010 Elections
Judicial Watch, a constitutionally conservative, non-profit educational foundation, has new evidence against Lois Lerner in the IRS Tea Party targeting case.
Documents they've just obtained from the Department of Justice show that the former IRS official met with Department of Justice's Election Crimes Division one month before the 2010 elections.
The Justice Department has withheld more than 800 pages of documents in the Lerner investigation, citing "taxpayer privacy" and "deliberative privilege."
"These new documents dramatically show how the Justice Department is up to its neck in the IRS scandal and can't be trusted to investigate crimes associated with the IRS abuses that targeted Obama's critics. And it is of particular concern that the DOJ's Public Integrity Section, which would ordinarily investigate the IRS abuses, is now implicated in the IRS crimes," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.
Chris Farrell, director of research and investigations for Judicial Watch, talked more about the significance of these newly discovered DOJ meetings, on CBN News Today, Dec. 9.
