The fact that nobody is in jail over all of this... and the fact that our president has not been charged with a crime or impeachment makes it clear that our republic is lost.
DISMANTLE the tyrannical arm of the totalitarian administration. Lerner should be in prison.
TREASON - agency-abetted, agenda-driven, representative-enabled.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
All assets of these totalitarians should be confiscated for crimes against the republic.
What rule of law?
Socialists desire to practice legal plunder, not illegal plunder. Socialists, like all other monopolists, desire to make the law their own weapon. And when once the law is on the side of socialism, how can it be used against socialism? For when plunder is abetted by the law, it does not fear your courts, your gendarmes, and your prisons. Rather, it may call upon them for help. - Bastiat

You can’t represent Notre Dame and USC at the same time.... That about sums it up.
On 3 occasions Cummings sent letters to Catherine Engelbrecht regarding an investigation.
Consensus of committee that they needed to be investigated.
Cummings trying to defend himself. This guy may get it that in about 3 years it could work the other way....
Been watching this from the start...
It is clear that the Dems on the Committee are more interested in SMEARING the witnesses. Engelbrecht has come under direct fire from US Representatives Connoly (Dumas), Cartwright and Cummings.
Cummings sent her letters on the Committee stationary saying that she was going to be investigated...
FILTHY LYING SOB!!
Rep Duckworth(less) now defending Cummings instead of inquiring about IRS targeting these AMERICANS!!
This lady is making things worse for cummings. Should have let this die down and hope the press didn’t really run with it....
Duckworth did make it worse - she just revealed that Cummings was under investigation by the FBI if not mistaken?
New Claims That IRS Targeting Of Tea Party Groups Continuing - Trey Gowdy - America’s Newsroom
This is a DNC coverup and DNC criminality.
Cummings is apparently guilty of misprision of felony
and perhaps subornation of perjury in the coverup.
I wish this lady would ask Cummings.... so after you got this report, did you order the IRS to investigate my company?
If I were Cathy Engelbrecht, I would remind the Dems on this committee that she is an American citizen and that THEY work for HER!! Tell Cummings that he’s a racist bigot attacking a white lady!!
Yeah.... I would just call him a liar and tell him that I don’t appreciate him targeting me. And that if he ever does it again I’d sue his ass in Oklahoma District Court. That is where this has to go.
Did you notice Cummings asked Catherine Engelbrecht about Tru the vote in the hearing today and repeatedly she stated she does not place poll workers, the organization educates, and does not place volunteers.
Jordan should recess the committee and tell this guy he doesn’t get any time :)
A better way to fix it is not to rewrite the law. It is to throw the people who did the targeting in jail. Then call it fixed.
Horsford is a freakin’ piece of garbage.
He forgets WHO he works for...
Says Cummings was “ATTACKED”!!
Horsford, D, NV

Catherine Engelbrecht: IRS targeting of conservatives is the weaponization of government
Cleta Mitchell: I was a Democrat till I realized they had become the party of gov’t & not the people
Cummings asks if poll workers were sent out to polls equally in North Carolina.
Response: Tru the Vote provides training, but has no control over where volunteers may offer assistance.
Over and over Cummings attempts to change the mission of the Tru the vote organization & does not seem to understand the stated mission.
Rep. Elijah Cummings accuses Katherine Engelbrecht and True the Vote of racism
That was an award winning moment...
She was an Oklahoma state representative. You know.... 35+ years ago when I registered to vote I registered Democrat. In oklahoma, often there weren’t republicans on the ticket for many offices. It was an extremely conservative but democrat state. Now it is the reddest state in the union. many of us in Oklahoma have taken Cleta’s path.

Thanks. Trey is a fav. Sure wish he’d challenge linda graham.
Cathy's just the best and deserves our support.
Where do you get that, 'Lijah? Only guy I ever saw try to vote twice was black. Do you have something you need to tell us?
Come on, Trey. Come on, guys. Don't declaim -- impeach!
This is the complete video set for the hearing. I would suggest everyone take the time to watch it. Although clips have merit and demonstrate a brief quote the entire hearing is well worth the time to watch in context.
It is chilling to see how far the government would go to diminish or stomp out free speech. Those new rules from the IRS will definitely affect elections. Becky Gerritson, during an interview with Cavuto, identified various terms that cant be used 30 days out from an election. @ 3:56 oppose, vote, reject, candidates name, political party.
She also mentions in the part one video at around 35 min.

Catherine Engelbrecht has filed an ethics complaint against Cummings. There were a couple of interactions with Cummings in the hearings. Recall that there were senators who started the IRS ball rolling.
