New Obama attorney general Loretta Lynch has hit the ground running, announcing criminal charges against international soccer officials in one case and questionable charges against Republican former House Speaker Dennis Hastert in another.

But she hasn’t pursued criminal charges against rogue IRS official Lois Lerner, who illegally targeted conservative groups as part of a plan to use the government to re-elect Barack Obama.

Rep. Paul Ryan, the new chairman of the House committee with oversight of the IRS, has asked Lynch why charges have not been brought against Lerner.

“The committee continues to believe that these serious charges should be [pursued] by the Department of Justice,” reads a letter from the House Ways and Means Committee. “We would appreciate receiving an update on the status of the referral as soon as possible.”

The committee has identified three possible criminal actions by Lerner:

“Ms. Lerner used her position to improperly influence agency action against only conservative organizations, denying these groups due process and equal protection rights under the law.

“Ms. Lerner impeded official investigations by providing misleading statements in response to questions from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

“Ms. Lerner risked exposing, and may actually have disclosed, confidential taxpayer information, in apparent violation of Internal Revenue Code section 6103 by using her personal email to conduct official business.”

The IRS recently announced hackers had obtained personal information of hundreds of thousands of taxpayers.

The Obama-appointed U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia refuses to charge Lerner.

Hpwever the Justice Department did find the time to bring criminal charges against a Republican in a case that has many legal experts scratching their heads.

Republican former House Speaker Dennis Hastert has been criminally indicted by the Obama Justice Department for not admitting to committing a criminal act, in a case in which the Justice Department is not charging him with a crime.

Hastert was being blackmailed by a former acquaintance. The Justice Department does not appear to be charging his blackmailer with any crime.

Hastert was also indicted for withdrawing a large amount of money in small increments, which violates a federal law against concealing criminal activity. The money was intended to pay his blackmailer and Hastert has not been charged with using it to fund any criminal activity.

If only Lois Lerner had a “R” next to her name.
