Issa Blasts Lerner Over Apparent Targeting of Republican Senator
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) led the charge against the commissioner of the IRS earlier this week. The agency has said that years of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails are missing.
Also this week, one email showed that Lerner targeted Republican Senator Charles Grassley (IA) for an internal audit.
Tonight on On The Record, Issa said, “We now have Lois Lerner as a criminal conspirator in this activity. We don’t know who else she conspired with. […] She broke rules, she broke laws, and it’s very clear after the Grassley revelation this is somebody who was trying to hurt people with her actions.”
Issa told Greta Van Susteren that more discovery subpoenas will go out with the aim of recovering the emails of Lerner and others who may be involved.
