Lois Lerner´s lawyer slams Issa, GOP
The Hill (Washington DC), by Bernie Becker

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/26/2014 12:42:04 PM

The attorney for Lois Lerner blasted the House GOP for recalling the former IRS official to testify next week, saying it would only serve to embarrass her and could increase threats against Lerner and her family. Bill Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, told House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that he told committee staff in January that Lerner would continue to invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if recalled, and that she would "happily testify" if given immunity. Taylor, of Zuckerman Spaeder, said he heard nothing further from the committee until Issa wrote to him on Tuesday, saying he was hauling Lerner

Sorry, she gave up her Fifth Amendment rights when she gave that statement. Nice try though...

Aww. Poor Baby.

I hope every Republican spends their entire time on the clock asking Ms. Lerner questions which she will have to continually invoke her 5th amendment rights.

Of course, she won´t be able to answer any of the Democrat questions either. But I expect those to be diatribes against the mean old bad terrible racist hatefilled did I say racist Republicans.

Too bad she´s embarrassed. Maybe she should have thought about that when she embarrassed herself by targeting people she didn´t like. I am sorry about the threats to her and her family. That shouldn´t happen but when you do stupid/illegal things, you suffer the consequences. If she answers the questions honestly, she has a better chance of ending this mess she created.

This broad´s not just a liar; she´s part of the Left, meaning she knows that if she gives away Obama and Holder, her life will be forfeit the way Vince Foster´s and Ron Brown´s were.

So give immunity and she´ll keep on lying and making stuff up and saying she´s done nothing wrong. Questioned about lies or changed testimony, she´ll stand on the 5A whether she legally can or not, figuring better some jail time than dirt nap time.

Lois need only tell the truth. What´s she hiding? If Lois is embarrassed about anything, it should be how she and her agency mistreated their fellow Americans just because their views differed from the current Obama-Commie Administration. THERE is where the embarrassment lies!

Issa needs to keep hauling her before the committee every couple of months asking the same questions in different form over and over again. After a few months Lois should be ready to make a deal and she won´t be driving a hard bargain either.

Press her and press her hard. She deserves no less for being a handmaiden for evil. She can´t tell the truth for fear of Vince Fostering and she can´t lie too much for fear of jail. I say torment and tease her and question her endlessly until she inadvertently says something interesting. That´s what her side would do.

She ought to be embarrassed after her participation in denying (delaying is denying) Citizens their Rights, singling out a certain group, which is discrimination.

She ought to be embarrassed, having first proclaimed in such a self-serving manner, her blamelessness and then "taking the Fifth."

Being caught as a lying liar ought to embarrass her.

Having been bought off by the regime ought to embarrass her.

Never having had the courage to stand against this politically motivated behavior ought to embarrass her... and every other person who claims to respect the Constitution and political debate.

I hope so, she needs to rot in a jail cell for a while. The only way to dismantle the IRS Machine is to take their key players out one individual at a time.

Eventually the rest will come forward rather than do time. Could not happen to a nicer bunch of despicable individuals.

Lois Lerner is a socialist lawyer, mean as a pit bull. Immunity will only provide a bunch of lies in the tradition of the Clinton´s and the democrat party. The Committee is good for public transparency, but a Special Prosecutor will be necessary to obtain any justice.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything.

One day after making an audio appearance on RT to ask Vladimir Putin about Russian surveillance operations, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden authored a Guardian column to clarify his intentions behind the question and push back on critics who suggest he was attempting to help whitewash the Russian president’s abuses. “Does Russia intercept, analyse or store millions of individuals’ communications?” Snowden asked Putin on Thursday, garnering a denial from Putin that included the statement: “We don’t have mass system of such interception. And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

The school vice principal found hanging Friday was identified as Kang Min-kyu, the lead guide for the school trip. No suicide note was found near the site, but Yonhap news agency reported that Kang

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
