Tom Fitton at Judicial Watch is reporting that Judicial Watch is continuing its efforts to hold Lois Lerner and the Internal Revenue Service accountable for their attack on conservative political groups.
I received an email from Judicial Watch today that included the following information:
The IRS will have to appear in federal court today after a federal judge ordered the agency to appear in response to our request that the IRS be required to explain to the court, to Judicial Watch and to you and the American people — what happened to Lois Lerner’s emails that they recently told Congress were “lost” but failed to notify Judicial Watch or the court about it.
Time: 11 a.m. ET
Location: Courtroom 24A
U.S. District Court
333 Constitution Ave., N.W.
These emails could be critical to getting to the bottom of the IRS scandal where Tea Party and other conservative group applications were illegally delayed by the IRS. In addition, Lois Lerner had communicated with Department of Justice officials to see if it was possible to prosecute these groups!
You may remember, it was a Judicial Watch lawsuit that first uncovered “smoking gun” evidence that broke wide open this scandal. And once again, Judicial Watch is causing action that is bringing the IRS before a court of law to explain their actions.
Judicial Watch is doing the job Congress seems to have forgotten how to do.
