Rep. Aaron Schock (R., Ill.) told Fox News host Gretchen Carlson there is “clear evidence” embattled former IRS official Lois Lerner broke the law Wednesday on Fox News.
The House Ways and Means Committee released a report today revealing evidence highly incriminating to Lerner, and will refer her to the Justice Department for prosecution.
Among the more startling allegations, Schock revealed the committee found evidence she deliberately attempted to obstruct Crossroads GPS’s 501 (c)(4) approval for purely political reasons.
“We have in writing her own e-mails after meeting with liberal-leaning groups like Democracy 21 and others where they specifically say, go after Crossroads GPS, target Crossroads GPS, shut them down, are the words that were used. She then goes after that meeting and e-mails her subordinates and says, ‘give me all of the documentation on Crossroads,’ and suggests denying their application.”
Host Gretchen Carlson noted unfortunately whether Lerner is actually an open question considering the decision rests on Attorney General Eric Holder.http://freebeacon.com/politics/schock-clear-evidence-lerner-broke-the-law/
