    Lois Lerner Emails: Republicans are Evil and Dishonest

    Lois Lerner Emails: Republicans are Evil and Dishonest

    ‘Not even a smidgen of corruption.’

    Lois Lerner is back in the news. According to a new report, emails Lerner sent to a friend reveal that the called Republicans evil and dishonest.

    She also criticized the Citizens United ruling as one of the worst things to happen in the United States.

    Andrew Kugle of the Washington Free Beacon:

    Lois Lerner: GOP is ‘Evil and Dishonest’

    Former IRS official Lois Lerner said that Republicans are “evil and dishonest,” in a email dated March 26, according to Fox News reporter James Rosen.

    In the email, Lois Lerner described the time when she was called back to testify about the IRS targeting of conservatives before Congress.

    “They called me back to testify, on IRS ‘scandal,” Lerner wrote. “I took the fifth again and they had been so evil and dishonest in my lawyer’s dealings with them.”

    Here’s the video report with James Rosen of FOX News:

    Lerner slammed ‘evil and dishonest’ GOP inquisitors

    At the height of the scandal over the IRS’ handling of political nonprofits, Lois Lerner privately let loose at her Republican tormentors, saying she invoked the Fifth Amendment because they had been “evil and dishonest” and accusing them of “hate mongering.”

    A POLITICO examination of thousands of pages of emails and other material recently released by the Senate Finance Committee found previously unreported comments from Lerner, the central figure in the controversy, on everything from the inability of career IRS agents to handle “the sensitive stuff” to her views on the fiscal cliff.

    When she was under investigation by Congress, she offered a blistering critique of her inquisitors. In a March 6, 2014, email, Lerner told a friend: “They called me back to testify on the IRS ‘scandal,’ and I too[k] the 5th again because they had been so evil and dishonest in my lawyer’s dealings with them.”

    It’s astounding that Lerner thinks she’s the victim in all of this.

    “Evil and dishonest”, perhaps Lerner is projecting a little? Would using the FEC to damage a senate candidate running against Dick Durbin count as evil and dishonest? Salvi lost under the cloud of Lerner’s investigation.

    But that was not Lerner’s reaction. Instead, that’s when she said to Salvi, “Promise me you’ll never run for office again, and we’ll drop the case.”

    Salvi said he asked Lerner if she would be willing to put the offer into writing.

    “We don’t do things that way,” Salvi said Lerner replied.

    Salvi queried how then could such an agreement be enforced.

    According to Salvi, Lerner replied: “You’ll find out.”

    Without a settlement, the Salvi case went to federal court. After months and years of briefings, delays and court appearances, federal judge George Lindbergh dismissed the case on its merits. Lindbergh said the FEC’s disagreement over filing, when two ways of reporting were acceptable, was groundless.

    And the rogue agents story was a lie under oath. Such dishonesty is apparently prerequisite for working in the Obama administration, since they have lied under oath about everything.

    Lerner unleashed the scandal via a planted question in a conference call on May 10. She later claimed under oath that the abuse was the work of just a couple of “rogue employees” in the IRS office in Cincinnati. That testimony has fallen apart …

    At the very least, this pathetic excuse of a human being shouldn’t be allowed to live off of a fat pension for the remainder of her pitiful existence. Employers have recourse for misfit employees who willingly harm a business, and American taxpayers should have some recourse against any rewarding of this viper.

    Lois is a victim because she is doing what is right from her perspective. Her moral standards are relative. She sets them not by logical or philosophical or theological reasoning, but by definition. Therefore, anyone who disagrees with her is evil by definition. You agree with her or she will destroy you because you deserve it. See her emails.

    She is not unique in the totalitarian left. She is but an example that is now in the light. She has been backfilled I suspect

    As a simple matter of English comprehension, I will not read “being so evil and dishonest in dealings with my lawyer” as “they are evil and dishonest people”.

    That may be what she means, but it’s not what she said.

    All right. Which one of you Republicans is “evil and dishonest”? Out with it you “right wing conspirators”, you “bitter clingers”, you “deniers”, you “common cause” caucus.

    Just because EPA officials purposely foul the Animus River in order to secure superfund money doesn’t mean you have to be so… apoplectic.

    And, just because the IRS denies Tea Party groups timely non-profit status if at all doesn’t mean that you have to be so downright “evil.”

    Meanies, the lot of you. Bhwaaaaa!
