Hopefully Rush will have a tape of her pleading the 5th over and over. Just might have to listen today.

Lerner is actually a good poster child for IRS abuses. She’s shifty and not a sympathic figure in any way. It would be hard to find a better symbol of the administration’s lying and deception than her.

There’s a lot more than meets the eye. See this thread. I think this is bigger than we think.

Possibly Issa’s timing was excellent. He closed the televised hearing in a sudden move, taking away Cummins’s bloviating opportunity at the actual hearing and therefore on the record.

Now the vote on contempt charges can be taken off camera. Everyone is very aware of the power of the TV cameras these days. Too bad they didn’t have the mics under control.

I've thought so from the beginning of this episode. It's as plain as the egg that will be all over Issa's face if this latest House Committee effort continues to crash and burn.

(And what's with this lovers' hand-holding going on with Lerner and her counsel during the questioning?)

Wonder how many other bogus 501s they created to funnel tax payer money into? Lerner or someone using her auto pen signing off on each one. She’s truly between BaROCK and some HARDtimePLACE

Unfortunately the Republican Party will work to slow him down and RINOize him. We make fun of the GOP but it still has powerful means to corral “wayward” free spirits with conservative convictions.

We really need a new party. The Republican Party is not the answer.

Can she (legally) plead the 5th if she’s asked about the opening statement she made at the first hearing? “Ms. Lerner, in May of 2013 did you say before this committee that . . .?” “Is that statement consistent with reports that . . . ?” etc.

Can’t she be charged with contempt?
_____________________________________________

Yes, but then what? They need to charge and prosecute her, but, of coarse, we only have the ‘injustice department,’ and weasels on the Hill do not seem to have the stomach for doing it on their own so the circus continues. I believe it is just posturing and all for public consumption to make it appear they are doing something. Look at the Holder contempt situation as an example. Absolutely, nothing has come out of the Fast and Furious gun walking travesty where the parents of Brian Terry are still waiting for justice as the parent are waiting in Benghazi, as the parents are waiting in Extortion 17, and on and on.

8 minutes
This video includes more footage. Cummings begins by stating he has a question, microphone is cut, then on again for about a minute.

Cummings continued after what you see on this video. He proceeded to state “facts” according to democrats and came to conclusion that mistakes were made, but nothing illegal.

He became the prosecutor, jury and judge.

The feed was eventually cut on c-span too.

The last time she took the 5th, but I remember something about her giving an opening statement, then didn’t testify, so she may have to say something.

We need to get the apolitical interested in this. Here’s my Facebook post today:

Facebook is mainly a place to keep up with old friends and family. In that vein, I’ve tried to limit my political posts.

But, today I have to say something to all of my friends, because EVERY US citizen needs to recognize this:

FOR THE BETTER PART OF TWO YEARS (OR MORE), THE IRS WAS TARGETING CONSERVATIVE GROUPS.

Fact.

If you are not aware of this issue, I urge you to research it. Start with the Google searches “Lois Lerner” and “not even a smidgen”.

If you will tolerate this, what other forms of government corruption and suppression will you support?

First they came…

Of course, the MSM will breathlessly report Mr. Cummings “testimony”.

You got that right. Drudge is linking to a CBS story about how the big event of the morning was Cummings' bravery in the face of Republican meanness. Strangely, Lois Lerner all but admitting that she ran a conspiracy that targeted conservative groups with the help and instigation of the WH is somehow of secondary importance.

Yet some rural county judge will throw a teenage girl in jail for answering a ringing cell phone?

Yet government department heads can lie, take the 5th, flat out refuse to answer questions about massive government corruption?

And she is allowed to smugly walk out???

Wow. Elijah Cummings erupts AFTER the hearing for the sole purpose of giving the NEWS MEDIA the excuse to make the news NOT about Lerner pleading the 5th, but about HIS rant. What a stunt.

I can't help but be reminded of Hillary's "What difference does it make" eruption.. SAME TACTIC. A diversion for the news media to seize upon while overlooking the actual content of the hearing!

If there's not a smidgeon of corruption, why did Lois not answer questions and why did Elijah have a fit?
