Skip to comments.Lois Lerner wants full immunity for her testimony
Posted on 07/03/2013 7:57:18 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The IRS official at the center of the targeting controversy will testify before the House oversght committee as long as she gets full immunity from prosecution, one of her lawyers said yesterday.
Lois Lerner, the former head of the exempt section of the IRS that targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny, took the fifth at her previous appearance before the committee right after she declared her innocence.
Republicans on the committee say that her statement of innocence meant that she waived her fifth amendment right to self incrimination and she should testify willingly.
"They can obtain her testimony tomorrow by doing it the easy way ... immunity," William W. Taylor III said in a phone interview. "That's the way to resolve all of this." The comments reflect the hard-line approach Lerner, the former head of the IRS division that scrutinized conservative groups, and her legal team are taking in defending her role in the agency's scandal."

Crank up ‘Ol Sparky!
Slime! The poster child of the Obama Administration!
DON’T GIVE HER IMMUNITY UNTIL YOU KNOW WHAT SHE KNOWS!!
She’s an arrogant government official who’s been after conservatives for over twenty years. She should testify or be found in contempt of Congress.
Once she’s given full immunity she’ll develop a case of Chicago Amnesia.Count on it.
Maybe, if you KNOW she will directly implicate Jarrett/Obama/Emanuel/Axelrod.
Oh, and she should be forced to resign her postion so the people don’t have to pay her anymore.
Immunity if she takes down the administration. And witness protection program.
haul that bee-yotch before the committee and if she refuses to testify, charge her with contempt of congress.
Woman belongs in jail along with obammy.
IF she claims she did nothing wrong, then she did everything right, what is there to prosecute?
Sounds like she has quite a story to tell and it will probably happen in closed quarters because you know how....er...um...transparent this administration is.
Full immunity????? So she can lie and say that no one else told her what to do, that she’s “fully to blame”, and now “you can’t prosecute me for everything I’ve just told you”!
Just off hand I’d say Obama has found a patsy.
Innocent people do not need immunity. Guilty people do not deserve it,
This is why we need waterboarding.
Charles Krauthammer has said they should grant her immunity.
