The one-time head of the U.S. tax authority's branch overseeing nonprofits won't testify about a years-long scheme to target conservative groups
Congress has the power to hold her in contempt, try her and imprison her in the Capitol jail
That power hasn't been used in more than 75 years but used to be common in bribery and other cases
After the Republican chair of the House Oversight Committee quickly adjourned Wednesday's hearing, his Democratic counterpart went 'ballistic'

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Something interesting tonight on Kelly File - Megyn had Cleta Mitchell on - seems Lois Lerner is being VERY cooperative with the people Obama asked to "investigate" the IRS  just won't cooperate with congress.

Exactly.

Besides, the IRS was targeting the Tea Party, no tears shed on either side of the aisle over that.

There is a Sheriff in Arizona that would be pleased to carve out a capital jail in his state.
All the best,

They have a holding cell. The democrats wanted everybody from Karl Rove, Cheney to Bush in it. People could also go to a regular civilian jail. But as I said in another thread Obama is pushing it to the limits. Usually, if a President claims executive privilege the impeachment process rolls along. AG Holder was held in contempt and he got what? Maybe a pay raise? Jonathon Turley-liberal expert uses the term-'constitutional chicken'. This is what Obama is playing, Chicago radical mob style and our media is standing by watching and cheering him on.
