Lerner attorney: Convenient for GOP to demonize Lerner
By HADAS GOLD |
6/29/14 9:53 AM EDT

Lois Lerner's attorney pushed back on Sunday against Republicans investigating the former IRS executive, saying their efforts are nothing more than election year politics.

"This is election year politics, it's convenient to have a demon that they can create and point to," William Taylor III said on CNN's "State of the Union."

Taylor appeared on the show right after Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee who said Taylor has "outright lied" a number of times while defending the former head of the IRS tax-exempt division.

"I won't respond to that, except to say he's wrong," Taylor said.

Taylor asserted that Lerner did everything she could to save her computer information when it crashed in 2011, losing several years worth of emails.

"I get it's convenient to create suspicion, and actually the e-mails that are missing are way before the time in which Congressman Issa and his colleagues are suggesting that there was unfairness or anything like it at the IRS," Taylor said. "The truth is these e-mails pre-date most anything that's of any relevance to anybody, but you can see why it's convenient to say there's a computer crash and therefore there must be something nefarious going on."

Taylor also defended Lerner pleading the Fifth Amendment at committee hearings, saying there was no point in subjecting her to bullying by Issa's committee.

"There was no pretense that this would be a fair process. from the beginning, the Republican majority has screamed without any evidence about things that she did," Taylor said. "The only purpose of having her there would be to vilify."

Issa: Lerner's attorney lied
By HADAS GOLD |
6/29/14 9:38 AM EDT

Rep. Darrell Issa said on Sunday that Lois Lerner’s attorney has “outright lied” a number of times while defending the former head of the IRS tax-exempt division.

“Her attorney has said things that are not correct, or disingenuous or outright lied a number of times, it's been shown by e-mail,” the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Lerner’s attorney, William Taylor III, has said that Lerner did not deliberately crash her hard drive in 2011, causing emails to be lost, and did not print her emails to paper as Issa asserts.

Issa said that Taylor is “trying to get his client off the hook after flubbing and taking the fifth.”

“Ultimately what we know is the archivist said that the IRS failed to do what they were supposed to do with informing, failed to properly keep documents and that has very little to do with the fundamental problem, which is Lois Lerner's unit headed by Lois Lerner and directed by Lois Lerner unfairly targeted and abused conservative groups for what they believed,” Issa said.

Lerner broke some laws, Issa charges

 By HADAS GOLD |

Former IRS executive Lois Lerner broke some laws and regulations by not properly saving her emails and sending inappropriate tax records to the Justice Department, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said on Sunday.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that they’ll “probably never know” what actually happened to Lerner’s hard drive, which crashed in 2011 losing the former head of the tax-exempt division’s emails from 2009 through mid-2011.

“What we do know from the discovery we have gotten from e-mails that we've gotten from multiple sources is she broke some regulations, she broke some laws, she sent - trying to get prosecution - sent 1.1 million tax records over to the Department of Justice including inappropriate or actually illegal 6103 disclosures on behalf of conservative groups,” Issa said.

Issa would not say whether he believes Lerner deliberately crashed her hard drive. But he said “it’s hard to believe” she wouldn’t print her e-mails to paper according to the law.

“Do I believe she printed to paper? Yes. She's an attorney of longstanding, and it's kind of hard to believe that you wouldn't cover with your own paper copies,” Issa said.

Goodlatte: Lawsuit 'absolutely not' a stunt
By BURGESS EVERETT |
6/29/14 9:26 AM EDT

House Republicans’ plan to sue President Barack Obama for executive overreach is “absolutely not” a stunt, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte said Sunday.

The Virginia Republican who chairs the House Judiciary Committee said the effort to take on the president for executive actions like deferring deportment of some illegal immigrants is “all about the Constitution” and not a personal attack on Obama.

“It’s very important. This should be bipartisan: People standing up for the balance of power,” Goodlatte said on “Fox News Sunday.” “It makes a whole lot of sense to do this.”

Fox News’s Chris Wallace then turned to Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) for a testy exchange in response to Goodlatte’s remarks -- making it clear that perhaps with the exception of red state Democrats, this will not be a bipartisan movement. Becerra, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said that deferred action on deportment and raising the minimum wage for federal contractors “are all things that the American people want to see.”

“The president simply said: ‘I’m going to do what I can within the confines of the law to make things work,’” Becerra said. “He’s implementing the law. No, he’s not rewriting it.”

Goodlatte did acknowledge how long it may take for such a lawsuit to work its way through the courts, a key complaint of Democrats. Obama may be out of office by the time the lawsuit is concluded, though Goodlatte did say the House has tried to make things more quickly.

Becerra predicts SCOTUS will dismiss Hobby Lobby
By BURGESS EVERETT |
6/29/14 9:33 AM EDT

The Supreme Court will dismiss the Hobby Lobby’s contraception case on Monday, Rep. Xavier Becerra predicted Sunday.

The California Democrat believes that the high court will side against the company that’s seeking to evade the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that businesses offer contraception to employees if they violate the owners' religious beliefs.

“The government will not violate anyone’s religious beliefs, but no one has the right to discriminate against a woman because of her own beliefs. And I believe that the Supreme Court will find that,” Becerra said on “Fox News Sunday.” “The owner has a right to his or her religious beliefs but that doesn’t mean you get to discriminate against women when women have different beliefs than the owner has.”

Not surprisingly, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) disagreed, saying the requirement “violates the FIrst Amendment of The Constitution.”

“I’m hoping the court upholds the rights,” he said.

Mr. Becerra is misusing the word "discriminate."

To "discriminate" would be to cover condoms for men while at the same time denying birth control for women. This is not the case. The company's position is consistent, regardless of whether the person is male or female.
