Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), head of the conservative Freedom Caucus and a member of the House Oversight committee, says he strongly disagrees with the Justice Department’s decision not to bring criminal charges against former IRS official Lois Lerner for impeding conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.
“That is just flat out wrong, in my judgment,” Jordan told “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace.
“Here’s a lady who systematically and for a sustained period of time targeted people for exercising their most fundamental rights, their First Amendment free speech rights.
“The president prejudged this case. Remember the facts here. The president said, ‘there’s no corruption here, not even a smidgen.’ The chief investigator, the chief lawyer assigned to the Justice Department to evaluate this was Barbara Bosserman, a maxed-out contributor to the president’s campaign.
“So it shouldn’t be any surprise the Justice Department said there’s nothing wrong here. But the American people know that there is.”
Jordan said “unfortunately,” there’s not much Republicans can do about the Justice Department’s failure to prosecute Lerner.
But he did note that U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch is scheduled to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Oct. 28.
“I plan on asking her some serious questions and hopefully some tough questions about how they — this investigation went, and who they actually talked to — what happened in this investigation.
