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 Wednesdays hearing, but Lerners 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 Wednesdays hearing. The delay would allow Lerners 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. Well see on contempt.
MMMM—she’s not liking the idea of karma?
Who does she fear .Obama’s people?
They are going to Fuddy her.
She already testified she “did nothing wrong”, so what’s she afraid of? Did she commit PERJURY when she said that?
That would be my guess.
is she goona fly to Hawaii?
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.
Gowdy stated today absolutely no chance of immunity.
Obamatollah the illegal alien ENEMY COMBATANT will Fuddy her.
That’s what the bitch gets for collaborating with moslem terrorists posing as ‘president.’
Chances are high that she will assume room temperature before she can testify with or without immunity.
Those nail gun suicides can be pretty nasty. Worse than a moose bite, even.
All out of care for this “lady”
Oh, give me a freaking break! This is such BS.
Let’s see documented evidence of these “threats” and proof that the Secret Service is aggressively investigating them!
