Lois Lerner fears for her life if she testifies at Wednesday’s oversight hearing
The Daily Caller ^ | 4-4-2014 | Patrick Howley

Posted on 03/04/2014 1:06:01 PM PST by servo1969

Lois Lerner fears for her life if she testifies openly before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, according to her attorney.

House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa announced Sunday that Lerner will testify at Wednesday’s hearing, but Lerner’s attorney Bill Taylor said that Lerner will seek to continue invoking her Fifth Amendment rights and will also seek a one-week delay of her testimony.

Oversight members are reportedly open to granting Lerner a one-week delay if she petitions for one in person at Wednesday’s hearing. The delay would allow Lerner’s lawyers to continue negotiating for immunity, which they have been doing since at least September.

“I advised the staff that calling Ms. Lerner knowing that she will assert her rights was not only improper but dangerous. Ms. Lerner has been the subject of numerous threats on her life and safety, and on the life and safety of her family. I left with the staff recent evidence of those threats,” said Taylor in a letter to Issa.

But Oversight previously determined that Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights when she made a statement attesting to her innocence at a May 2013 hearing. Republican Reps. Jim Jordan and Jason Chaffetz, both Oversight members, said recently that they were considering holding Lerner in contempt of Congress if she does not testify.

Issa said on the subject, ”We want her to come back and answer questions. We’ll see on contempt.”

She already testified she “did nothing wrong”, so what’s she afraid of? Did she commit PERJURY when she said that?

As well she should, her choice is perjury, or to rat out Obama.

Meh. Any person who becomes famous or infamous, for whatever reason, will receive threatening letters/email/phone calls. Producing evidence of them does not in any way prove that a person is actually in any danger, just that there are sad, unbalanced people out there who use anonymity as a cloak for behavior that they couldn’t do face-to-face.

~~~They are going to Fuddy her.~~~

Yes, if there’s any chance she is compelled to tell the truth. In that *unlikely* event she ever tells the truth, look for another postmortem cardiac arrhythmia determination.

Or perhaps a flaming car crash.

I think Gowdy, Gohmert have all the evidence they need - Gowdy was *extremely* confident about immunity on FNC today -
so perjury = jail quickly. Her only option is to rat out Jarrett and zero, i.e., tell the truth.

Ms. Lerner has been the subject of numerous threats on her life and safety, and on the life and safety of her family. I left with the staff recent evidence of those threats,” said Taylor in a letter to Issa.

Get that? Not only will Ms. Lerner not testify if called to do so without immunity from prosecution, but the very act of calling her to testify endangers not only her life, but those of her family as well. Just calling her to testify could result in her death or dismemberment, you understand.





















I swear...this pinch-faced broad must be the most important bureaucrat to ever walk the earth.
