    Federal Judge Threatens To Hold IRS Commissioner, DOJ Lawyers in Contempt of Court over Lerner


    JULY 29, 2015

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced that U.S District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan today threatened to hold the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service and Justice Department attorneys in contempt of court after the IRS failed to produce status reports and newly recovered emails of Lois Lerner, former director of the Exempt Organizations Unit of the IRS, as he had ordered on July 1, 2015.


    During the a status hearing today, Sullivan warned that the failure to follow his order was serious and the IRS and Justice Department’s excuses for not following his July 1 order were “indefensible, ridiculous, and absurd.” He asked the IRS’ Justice Department lawyer Geoffrey Klimas, “Why didn’t the IRS comply” with his court order and “why shouldn’t the Court hold the Commissioner of the IRS in contempt.” Judge Sullivan referenced his contempt findings against Justice Department prosecutors in the prosecution of late Senator Ted Stevens (R-AK) and reminded the Justice Department attorney he had the ability to detain him for contempt. Warning he would tolerate no further disregard of his orders, Judge Sullivan said, “I will haul into court the IRS Commissioner to hold him personally into contempt.”

    After the hearing, Judge Sullivan issued the following “minute order”:
    At the July 29, 2015 status hearing, the Government agreed that the Court’s July 1, 2015 oral order from the bench was clear and enforceable. Nonetheless, the Government reasoned it inappropriate to file a motion for reconsideration until a written order was issued. As expressed at the hearing, the Government’s reasoning is nonsensical. Officers of the Court who fail to comply with Court orders will be held in contempt. Also, in the event of non-compliance with future Court orders, the Commissioner of the IRS and others shall be directed to show cause as to why they should not be held in contempt of Court. The Court’s July 1, 2015 ruling from the bench stands: (1) the Government shall produce relevant documents every Monday; (2) the Government’s document production shall be accompanied by a status report that indicates (a) whether TIGTA has turned over any new documents to the IRS, (b) if so, the number of documents, and (c) a timeframe for the IRSs production of those documents. Signed by Judge Emmet G. Sullivan on July 29, 2015.

    Of all the recent scandals, this one in my book is the most egregious!

    A government entity was used to quiet the opposition. A major abuse of power and the IRS has a long history of abuse. When individuals can suppress the opposition through a government entity that is supposed to be unbiased, it becomes criminal.

    The IRS has to go!

    Are you kidding us Franco?

    So Fast & Furious didn't bother you, and perhaps Bengazi was just a speed bump? Classified info being sent from and to and then stored, and subsequently deleted from a private email server?

    Yes sir, sign me up for the Liberaltarian party so I too can only care about what is important.

    You really do have a problem!

    I said the IRS scandal is the most egregious of all the scandals. That doesn't mean Bengazi or fast & Furious weren't bad.

    The IRS is DC's instrument of terror on the American people. The IRS has been used in the past to intimidate political rivals. So yes, more serious than Bengazi or F & F!

    But then again, I don't expect much from you and your narrow misguided views.

    You need to climb back into your Ebola bunker.

    And, the IRS tried to cover it up with blatant lies.

    Didn't we already know that? Or are do they just now have indisputable evidence of that fact. The last IRS head was attending Easter egg hunts on numerous visits if memory serves.
