Trey Gowdy Absolutely Obliterates Lois Lerner As Vote Passes To Hold Her In Contempt


Trey Gowdy exploded in righteous indignation at a House Oversight Committee held for the purpose of a determining whether to hold Lois Lerner in contempt. The former IRS executive in charge of tax exempt entities is at the center of the IRS Tea Party targeting scandal, but has obstructed the investigation by declaring her Fifth Amendment right to silence, while making other statements in her defense. House Government Oversight and Reform Committee voted 21-12 Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions about the targeting of conservative groups. “We need Ms. Lerner’s testimony to complete our oversight work,” House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said. “American taxpayers certainly don’t get to plead the Fifth and escape all accountability when the IRS audits them.”

    Gowdy nailed Lerner to the wall spread eagle!

    • junkmailbin

      not a very pretty image but very needed

    • Myrtle Linder

      Things that need to be done is not always something you may desire to do, you do it because you must, when it it the right thing to do. I trust Gowdy to make great decisions, decision that is his duty to make.

    • politicstick

      With railroad spikes!!! Indeed!

  • Nikita63

    Gowdy has said it all and said it well but, though all his points are legitimate, Lerner and her defenders will NOT be held responsible or accountable and Gowdy has implied as much in his comments about average American citizens being subject to constitutional law ands the SAME should be expected of government officials who do not consider themselves subject to it as they are better than those they serve. when of course, they bother to do so rather than serving nothing but themselves.

    • disqus_Ki3yt4g0EM

      You are more tan likely right Nikita,. but at least the message is sent and those of us who are informed get a sense of righteousness from this exposure

      • Nikita63

        In the end, it is not important whether a personal opinion is right or not, what matters is the maintenance of the Constitutional Republic in which ALL of us were raised so that our children’s children will inherit a legacy of freedom and choice and not the planned one of debt and enslavement under the dominance of the UN as is hoped for by these New World Order Progressives whose European countries had to be saved by THIS country from slavery twice in the last century. Why did we not learn by THEIR example and instead adopt a system Proved time and again to be a study in futility.

        • disqus_Ki3yt4g0EM

          I couldn’t agree with you more.

          • Nikita63

            Let us hope that enough American Citizens can offset the fraudulent votes we KNOW will be cast and effect the change we need to begin resolving the problems exacerbated by the current administration bur blamed by them on the previous one which has not been in office for five years! By any standard, their PERFORMANCE has been ABYSMAL and THAT, is the criteria by which they should be judged; And wherever possible, REMOVED!

  • caskinner

    Gowdy is brilliant. This country needs more like him. He’s got grit and integrity and is full of fire.

    • 19greg45

      Exactly! To hell with wimpy, mealy-mouthed, over-compromising RINOs. We need firebrands, bomb throwers and rabble rousers to go after corrupt democrats hard and fast, and not let up until they holler for their Mommas.

      • be12345

        They need to go after the RINOs too. We especially don’t need them either.

      • caskinner

        I’m with you Greg!!

      • URKiddinMee

        We in the Upstate of SC are proud of the fact that we ousted Trey’s predecessor, Bob Ingliss, who was a RINO of the highest order. We booted him out during the primaries! Now if we can do the same with Amnesty McCain’s lapdog Iindsay Graham!

  • chamuiel

    now, the question is will she be held accountable in some way? will she see jail time? Will obama try to shut it down?

    • fedupwidit

      No, she will ride off into the sunset with Obama and Holder and Elijah Cummings and the rest of those crooks parlaying her time at the IRS into a 6 figure job somewhere at the expensse of taxpayers no less….

      • Maranatha2011

        They may think they are going to ride off into the sunset, but that light & heat they detect is really destination: Hell!

        • fedupwidit

          point taken Maranatha…..

    • disqus_Ki3yt4g0EM

      Obama, Holder and Reid wont allow her to be hurt. she wont be held accountable under this thug administration and these same thugs will do everything in their power to discredit Gowdy and his line of question. This dictatorship will be complicit in silencing all. SAD!

  • Macjamm

    Who is we? That is a really good question, I think its the invasion force disguised as The Obama administration that’s bent on the overthrow of these United States of America.. Good for Gowdy,..

  • Billy Bob Johnson

    Trey (Gomer) Gowdy is a little squeaky weasel. Just look at him and listen to him. Would you like your daughter to be seen with a slime ball like him? I think not!!

    • Myrtle Linder

      There is a slime ball here, but it is NOT Trey Gowdy, he is a country loving, sincere, honest, hard working, man who I am happy to claim as a man from my state, of the top of all states, SOUTH CAROLINA.

    • 7MichiganMan .

      Trey has more integrity than 99% of politicians.

    • Nonne

      Billy Bob, if you have a reason to find Gowdy’s statements un-American, please explain your facts. The silly name-calling you are doing is childish. Like a playground bully would do.

      • Billy Bob Johnson

        Are you kidding me!! What a hypocritical statement. Just read all of the “name calling” statements made in these postings. You can see far worse than “weasel” here by your right wing extremist friends.

    • TexasfedupGramma

      What are you afraid of Mr. Billy Bob? Related to any of these gutter rats? Gowdy is doing the people’s work, unlike the rest of these spineless politicians!

    • MontieR

      I would rather see any of my daughters with a man like Gowdy, than a mealy mouthed, mentally deficient retard like you. I pity people like you who suffer from the mind cancer of liberalism.

    • TJefferson

      You’re defendantly one of those “tolerant” progressives. If my daughter had married a person just like him instead of the parasite progressive she did marry I’d be proud.


      I think you had better look into a mirror, and redirect your comments to yourself.

    • Mathematical certainty

      Billy Bob Johnson, it is an honor, that after you were torpedoed from the womb and salvaged by several sewer rats that you are available to express your opinion. Rumor has it that your sons and daughters also enjoy the sewer-slime!

    • Maranatha2011

      Most thinking, Republic-loving patriots consider him a knight in shining armor. And, YES, I’d be PROUD to have him as a son-in-law.

    • SBFLA

      WE are talking about portrayal of the facts here moron of a criminal, not your personal feelings about Gowdy’s speaking habits or taste in women. I feel bad for your children having to read and listen to the foul mouthed liberal drool that flows from an ignorant, inbred toolbag like yourself. I love how you ignore completely what this article is about to insult a man that obviously has some legitimate dirt and questions on the wrongdoings of a high level government IRS employee. Just like a democrat to ignore the facts and attack the accuser because they don’t ever want to face the truth.

    • PeaverBogart


    • stainless

      All lawyers, politicians, in my view are very close to criminal. However, If I ever found myself in need of an attorney this man would be the person I would want on my side. He is fearless and truly believes that his point of view is correct. So do I! My daughter’s have absolutely nothing to do with this Billy Bob. They have both been married for many years. Get a grip on yourself.

    • Tricia65

      I most certainly would like for her to be seen with a Trey Gowdy type. A patriot who loves this country, respects the Constitution and has integrity with big nads and not afraid to show em’.

    When are we going to see them DO something?

  • Joanne

    Gowdy needs to watch his back, he’s up against the notorious Chicago Mafia, they don’t get mad, they get even. Who knows what the outcome will be but Issa and Gowdy did their jobs getting to the bottom of this injustice.

  • squeak

    You go Gowdy, you said it all… there should be more like you … this has been going on far too long while she is receiving taxpayers dollars ” RETIREMENT “… that should be a NO NO , she should not receive one cent until this case is resolved… make her repay it all ! Wouldn’t Gowdy have a ball with Bengahzi Hillary in a debate… GOWDY FOR PRESIDENT ! You have my vote !

    • infadelicious

    wish more in Congress had a pair of balls like Mr Dowdy.

  • Take 2

    Lerner cried out for safety while she remains protecting herself and family. This shadow Governance deals in money laundering via bad green corp loans – huge oil shut downs and buybacks – gun sales to mass murders / drug lords to global hit list murdering key world leaders…Then here sets little but big boy’s Louis Lerner – privileged and engaged with a seated Presidents shadowy and very dirty laundry. Will she choose witness protection or eventually pass away like the Brightbart’s and or ARK Bank Board of Directors i.e. Jim McDougle etc., ring a bell.

  • Hector Montes

    Gowdy is certainly a rising star, I like him, he looks and sound genuine. His passion, his fervor, I hope he is the start of a whole new groups of men that are really there to serve their country.

  • D. Guardian

    the way I see it: Mrs. Lois Lerner, please report to the judge’s chamber for a customary, well deserved slap on the wrist…

  • Mathematical certainty

    To the voters of South Carolina, as a Yankee, I implore you to keep Trey Gowdy in office. I love this guy! Trey Gowdy is what this country needs to retake the rights, liberties, and freedoms which are slowly being siphoned off by the left-wing-liberal-Neanderthals currently in-charge.

    I would not want to be on the guilty side of anything and have Trey Gowdy as the prosecutor. That man has a set of gonads like basketballs and the thorough knowledge of an entire team of lawyers. Complete and to the point. I truely admire that kind of fortitude. Most of those wantabes in that room can only dream of being like Gowdy. And I’m certain that most people typing their input in here will agree with what I’ve said .

  • rocky63

    Why is no one pushing for Gowdy as a presidential candidate?

      He values his life ! They would get rid of him like they did JFK ! We haven’t picked a president in a 100 years ! We have been set up ever since the FED started.

  • Al Chemist

    If we had a few more Congressmen and Senators as full of piss and vinegar as Gowdy, there would be an effective opposition to the liberal/progressive/commie in the White House.

  • jb80538

    Gowdy needs to at least be speaker of the house!

  • notalib

    Gowdy is one of the “white hats” in Congress when many wear “black hats.” He makes his arguments simple, clear and concise so even I can understand them. We need many more like him.

  • MildBill

    Lois Lerner needs to find out first hand where “half truths” and “whole lies” will get you. . . .By making statements she has already committed herself to answering any questions in regard to her statements. . . . .She could very well be the first domino to fall and start the chain reaction. . . They all will rat out other rats to save their sorry behinds ! . . . It’s a case of “CYA”, and that doesn’t mean “call your advisor’ ! . . . I like domino’s ! . . . Trey Gowdy is a good man. . .If I were for cloning, he’d be a good start !

  • Disgusted with the GOP

    He knows the tools that congress has had at their disposal, and he is just as dumbfounded as we are they have not been used. I am disgusted with the GOP and their spineless leadership, and with every interview Trey Gowdy has had I know one thing for sure, he is the only voice speaking for the American people. Yes , go to his internet site and sign your name that you too support him for president. Go look at all his segments in trying to get Benghazi information. I am ashamed of Boehner, I am disgusted with the fraud in the WH and that race batter AG Holder. If they are talking they are just telling lies and the only fall back is to say it is because of their race. I don’t care if they are black white yellow or a woman(Yes Hillary , who has never been charged with her dereliction of duty), they are never held accountable for their lies and their backroom deals and their failure to follow the laws. If you aren’t an entity that they have to grease their palms, you are of no interest to them. Shame on the Congress for not doing their job. Trey Gowdy is the only one that speaks out. One of my favorites of Trey is when he calls Pelosi mind numbingly stupid. He is clear when he says the Dems and the IRS and most especially the president think we are stupid, and only we, the American people can stop them. Go Trey Go! Hear the call to duty, Run for President!

    • Tricia65

      President Gowdy has a wondrous ring to, doesn’t it?

  • notalib

    I bet when Gowdy speaks Eliji Cummings listens. He is the Democrat, ranking minority I think, that apparently was requesting information on tax payer groups and not sharing them with the committee. He was the one most vocal, sitting just to the right of Chairman Issa, trying to derail the investigation. Now it appears he is at the heart of it along with Lerner. Bunch of slimy crap-weasels.

    • 58proudtobe

      You know Cummings has most probably been reporting to the WH of the committee’s internal findings. Now we know why the democRat went rabid on Issa.

  • Disgusted with the GOP

    I just went to the speakers site and advised him to ask Trey what tools he has had available all along to deal with this corruption in DC. He is a RINO trying to cut his own back room deals. We have got to stop sending RINOS to DC, they all just need to join their real party and be the liberals they already are and have been all along. I am disgusted with the GOP! Go Trey GO! Run for President Trey!

  • stainless

    Way to go, you have become my new hero! Make this real!

  • PeaverBogart

    Trey Gowdy is THE MAN.

  • xoxozo

    I want Gowdy for PRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! or at least for VP then Pres. HE IS the SHARPEST ONE in the whole investigation and has been for the entire time.

  • HongryHawg

    Elijah Cummings is skeered. I see it on his face. Normally he would be jumping down Gowdy’s throat for his “inappropriate attack” on his future cellmate. Looks like now he’s just decided to keep his head down.

    • Disgusted with the GOP

      He has been exposed in the newly released emails he had with Ms scumbag Lerner; he wanted updates on what she was finding ; ie the targeted tea party, conservatives, not a single liberal group was targeted, that false claim was already debunked as a lie. Bless True the Vote for standing up and being a witness for all the harassment she has endured under Lerner’s self imposed judge, jury and how many ways can I stick it to any conservative group or voice out there on the behalf of the fraud in the WH. Yep Cummings has to be quiet now, can’t claim it is because of his race, he has been exposed! We need Trey, and he will make sure that from his presidency forward we will get the actual third party investigation, just like the government requires for anyone with a security clearance, so that any future person seeking to be the president has to provide proof they are a citizen and per our constitution actually be eligible to become president. This fraud we currently have in the WH will be our last. I already know nothing is going to be done, the low information voters and fraud votes made sure of that, but in the future, we should not have to be held hostage as a nation by someone that has committed this level of fraud. Hillary wasn’t the first one to take on the birther issue, the president identified himself at Harvard as being from Kenya. Shame on the GOP for being spineless, on Hillary for her dereliction of duty, on Holder for failure to represent all Americans, not just those of color, Run Trey Run! Your country is calling! Expose them all for the self serving race batting arrogant frauds they are, and this includes the RINOS! We have laws, the president refuses to uphold them and is never held accountable! Run Trey Run!

God is good and the truth will come out. This is worse than Watergate, Whitewater and almost as bad as the Vince Foster suicide (NOT)!

  • daveveselenak

    Day after day, hour by hour, minute by minute, the tyranny gathers steam as you and the entire (opposition party?) refuse to uphold your oaths of office and protect this country from enemies foreign and DOMESTIC! It can no loner be tolerated and by giving this new Hitler and his hencman a continual pass on illegal and unconstitutional acts you are inviting a revolution! We have a procedure in the constitution which is IMPEACHMENT! These two latest and outrageous displays of tyranny can not be tolerated! We have “civilian” jackbooted thugs invading a rancher in Nevada and we have Henchman Holder telling congress to essentially kiss his ass while playing the race card. I had told you that this reprobate was “implanted” because of his skin color for this very reason. The communists knew what they were doing when they inserted this known communist and his communist buddy! Militia from around the country are going to Nevada as they should! You and your party, at least those who are still loyal to this country, if there are any, must grow a pair and uphold the law, something Henchman Holder refuses to do! We have become a nation of men, not laws, and unfortunately we have a bunch of mice opposing them; keep acting like that and the revolution that these communists are trying to stir up will indeed happen! I was FORCED to fight communism at the tender age of 21 and I’ll be damned, and should be, if I won’t fight it on my homeland! Grow up already.

  • T. Copps

    Excellent.. I am liking this guy more and more…Republicans looking for a leader… I think they need to look right at him. As for this Miss Lerner, she is obviously hiding something, protecting someone, otherwise she would testify, she would want to.. this is how it is supposed to work in this country. But just like the idiot Holder got away with his lies, and Obama does every day, this little miss is under their protection, To my mind, she should not be considered American any longer!

  • mike88

    This is BS, just because you are held in contempt of congress does not mean you are being held anywhere, not in jail, not in prison, it just means that Congress does not like what you have said or done. After all look at Attorney General Erik Holder, he was also held in Contempt of Congress and he is still walking as free as a bird. nothing happened to him at all. Contempt of Congress is a joke unless Congress actually begins holding these people in a jail cell until they decide to talk.


    As long as Boo Hoo is SoH this will go nowhere. She needs to be given immunity and a special prosecutor appointed to ream their a$$es. No bureaucrat is equipped or prepared to sit in jail. The b1tch will talk if they squeeze her t!tt!es hard enough. Cases like Susan McDougall are rare. This scandal is a perfect way to bring down Cummings, Holder & Obama. It must also be kept front & center until Nov.
