Justice caught huddling with Lerner to crush tea-party election

WASHINGTON – The government watchdog group Judicial Watch has struck again, discovering Lois Lerner, former IRS tax-exempt division chief, had discussed possible criminal prosecution of conservative groups with Justice Department officials two years before what the agency had previously conceded.

Lerner met with Department of Justice, or DOJ, officials in October 2010, just before the November midterm elections. Those elections gave the GOP a huge victory, following the rise of tea party groups. It was tea party groups that Lerner primarily targeted.

Judicial Watch used a Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, request to obtain the documents, but had to go to court to force the DOJ to release the material.

One document shows a DOJ official with the Election Crimes Division of the Public Integrity Section of the DOJ’s Criminal Division setting up a meeting with a “Ms. Ingram.”

Judicial Watch said that was an apparent reference to Sarah Hall Ingram, former commissioner, IRS Tax Exempt and Government Entities, and that the unnamed DOJ official was Richard Pilger, director of the Election Crimes Division.

The email was also forwarded to DOJ Public Integrity Section Chief Jack Smith and Principal Deputy Chief Raymond Hulser. According to the documents, Ingram was not available but arranged for her deputy, Lerner, to meet with the DOJ senior officials.
