IRS scandal figure Lois Lerner is negotiating through her lawyers with Rep. Darrell Issas House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about possibly gaining immunity to testify again in the committees investigative hearings.
The Chairman did not adjourn the hearing, he recessed it. Ms. Lerner remains under subpoena. The Committee has not made any offer of immunity to Ms. Lerner. The Committee has, however, indicated a willingness to listen to any offers from her attorney about what she would testify to if it was offered, Oversight Committee adviser Ali Ahmad told The Daily Caller.
I dont have any update for you on timing, Ahmad said in regard to when Lerner will be called back before the committee.
Though Lerner, who apologized for her IRS divisions improper scrutiny of conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status, can be called back before Issas committee without immunity, and even arrested if she doesnt show up, Oversight seems to be taking a more diplomatic approach to get information out of her.
Washington-based Lerner tried to plead the Fifth to avoid self-incrimination in congressional testimony in May, but the Oversight Committee ruled that she waived her Fifth Amendment rights when she said I have not broken any laws before attempting her plea.
Emails released this month show Lerner appearing to collude with Democratic operatives and the Federal Election Commission in targeting tea party groups in 2011.
The IRS did not return a request for comment on the nature of Lerners negotiations with investigators.
It’d be a mistake to offer her immunity. All she would do at that point is say, “Yeah, it was all my idea.”
No immunity! The GOOBers have fallen for that ploy before. Give her immunity and you’ll never get her to talk. Threaten her with prison and you’ll never shut her up.
The commie hoe has been undermining America for 20 years. She needs a public conviction.
She needs to do serious prison time.
No. Send her to prison and have a wardrobe of orange jumpsuits.
“”Though Lerner, who apologized””
I sure don’t remember that happening!!!!
She will do or say anything to protect the son of a bitch that put her up to it.
She will be protected, count on it.
She should be watching her back however, she has lots of enemies. Frankly I hope the bitch acquires a long debilitating disease that eats all of her fiber and being. She deserves to rot in hell with the rest of the traitors.
immunity , BLAH , Obama will give her a Pardon, then place in his Admin where no one can touch her ,just like Rice
She should be careful crossing the street-—accidents happen.
“But... of course I did nothing wrong.”
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
But the BIGGER scandal that America is concerned about is a southern woman that has a cooking show who said the N word 30 years ago.
don’t write filth like that, OK?
This is not democrap underground
Keep in mind the Vince Foster solution. Hilldebeast will clean out her office and home.
The GOP should make an example out of this human pitbull if they don’t want Democrats using the IRS as a personal hit squad in the future.
Something for the federal drones to whisper about at the water cooler.
Who are you, the hall monitor?
She deserves prosecution. Let her see spending her retirement years in a Federal prison and maybe she might talk to save her butt.
Well, well, well.
Lois will buy you all an ice-cream cone
The deal could be written so that she must give up a bigger fish in order to get off. If she tries to get immunity and gives nothing in return, the deal is void.
Hey Lois. You might want to read up on the treatment of Vince Foster and Jim McDougall before you decide to be a good little soldier for the Commies!
Spill the beans for a new life in the Sudan or take a chance with Nero’s Praetorian Guards.
How about NO!
You have already obstructed us once, we’re not going to trust you or reward you for that.
“Oversight Committee adviser Ali Ahmad....”
Sounds like a moslem in the ‘hen house of representatives.’
“Itd be a mistake to offer her immunity. All she would do at that point is say, Yeah, it was all my idea.
I agree. Keep digging.
NO immunity for that arrogant, lying bureaucrat. She’s under subpoena and needs to tell all. The difference between testifying and answering all questions and refusing to testify is whether her prison term is 25 years or 15 years.
“Though Lerner, who apologized for her IRS divisions improper scrutiny of conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status, can be called back before Issas committee without immunity, and even arrested if she doesnt show up, Oversight seems to be taking a more diplomatic approach to get information out of her.”
Yep... the old soft glove, RINO approach. THAT will get to the truth...
She swore, under oath, that there was nothing she did that she needs immunity from prosecution for. Screw her immunity, she doesn’t need it. Unless she lied when she swore she did nothing wrong.
I don’t know that immunity would be such a bad idea. The government ended up putting a lot of mobsters behind bars after Sammy the Bull squealed on John Gotti and La Cost Nostra.
Immunity, once offered, goes away if the witness tells even one lie, or withholds evidence.
If Lois Lerner tells the Committee what she has to say, and they decide that’s worth giving her immunity, she can’t go back on what she told them without losing her immunity.
I’d be in favor of letting her keep her worthless hide out of jail if she delivered the scalps of higher ups, especially in the White House.
I don’t know, but perhaps she would still be liable for civil damages against groups or individuals that she harmed. Immunity wouldn’t cover that.
Right someone will need to be the John Dean of this administration. She certainly might be able to do it. So give her qualified immunity and see what she has to say.
Waterboard her until she gives it up. She is a lieing commie LIB but a few months of continuous waterboarding should suffice...24 hours a day. She is a traitor to our freedom. She needs to have that smug visage wiped off.
Naw, just hook her testicles up to a car battery ...
Crucify the apparatchik
Charles Manson inflicted less harm
Since she acted outside the scope of her job, who is paying for her attorneys? One guess?
Good grief, so you favor government over reach. You just want your side to do the over reaching.
There is no “overreaching” when dealing with commie LIBs. I’d add “then seize her assets and deport her”.
You do not offer immunity until you know what she will say. Although she is a despicable person I would give her immunity if she will testify about those that are above her.
Issa is not a fool.
Go to jail. Go directly to jail. Do no pass “Go”. Do not collect $200.
PLUS, we'll be PAYING for it!!
Dear Darrell Issa.....I want her in PRISON, where she BELONGS!!
If Obama PARDONS her, that will be VERY BAD for Obama....it’ll show even the LIV that he was in on it!
Issa is NOT a fool, but this has been WAY TOO SLOW, and he is NOT a Lawyer.
