Former occupant Barack Obama has stated many times that he ran a “scandal-free” administration, but the truth of the matter is it was anything but.
Numerous scandals were either swept under the rug or completely ignored by the DNC’s propaganda wing known as the mainstream media. One such scandal was the IRS deliberately targeting conservative non-profits to suppress their freedom of speech, and while the woman behind it, Lois Lerner, had gotten away with it under the old administration, things have changed…big time.
Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) appeared on Stewart Varney’s show on Fox Business Thursday morning to discuss recent developments in the case, and he said the GOP is going to be filing criminal charges against the crooked Obama crony.

A partial transcript, via the Gateway Pundit:
Rep. Roskam: The Obama Administration was very lenient with the crimes that Lois Lerner committed. And those are strong words that I’m using but the House Ways and Means Committee voted out a criminal referral to the Department of Justice which was completely dismissed by the Department of Justice… We think that Lois Lerner did two things wrong. Number one, she denied people due process and equal protection of the law based on their political philosophy. We’re convinced that there is overwhelming evidence to suggest that that’s true. And that’s a felony. Secondly, we suspect that she lied to the Inspecter General of the Treasury Department.
When Lerner had previously testified, she invoked the Fifth Amendment so she didn’t have to divulge any information, then she ended up leaving the IRS with a cushy pension, which had Americans furious – a government employee abused her power, pled the fifth, and still received her pension. Of course people were outraged.
But now, with a new sheriff in town, it appears as if she’s going to need all that taxpayer cash to pay a high-dollar attorney to keep her worthless ass out of prison.
Good. I hope she spends ever last penny of it, and still ends up in jail.
