House Republicans Still Keeping Themselves Busy Trying to Ruin Lois Lerner’s Day

House Republicans are taking action on multiple fronts this week against former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner, pursuing criminal charges against her for alleged violations that include contempt of Congress and leaks of confidential taxpayer information.

Lerner’s attorney, William Taylor, said Wednesday that the referral is “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” noting that the Justice Department is already investigating the IRS targeting matter. ‎

“Ms. Lerner has done nothing wrong,” Taylor said. “She did not violate any law or regulation. She did not ‎mislead Congress. She did not interfere with the rights of any organization to a tax exemption. ‎Those are the facts.”‎ [Federal Eye via WaPo]
