Hopefully Rush will have a tape of her pleading the 5th over and over. Just might have to listen today.
later today - a video here
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.
Hay! How do you know!
and that’s All Folks. Loony Toons!
Put her in jail until she talks....................
I wish Trey Gowdy could take over for Issa. He’s a real go-getter and a rising star.
Yep, that was short!
Now that Lois had blabbed and then pled the 5th, let see what issa will do (if anything)
What about a grand jury?
“Keep bringing her back and running up her legal bills thereby incarcerating her each day she is there.”
There is no way she is paying her own legal bills, cmon.
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
Lois Lerner Again Takes the Fifth at Congressional Hearing
Video - 2 minutes - shows her taking the 5th - but not the Cummings/ Issa exchange
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.
Hope she can afford to pay the taxes of the money someone else is paying. She’s no longer a government employee
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.
I know everything, you know that. lol
seen it yesterday
..it won’t get good til a special prosecutor is appointed
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.
Were those questions asked/referred to?
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.
Lois Lerner Takes The Fifth, Again
This is a video of fox news Greg Jarrett, with Steve Hayes.
Then the comments from Issa with reporters on events in the hearing.
Comments from Martha McCallum and they go to Cummings being interviewed by reporters.
IRS Scandal - Fmr IRS Official Lois Lerner Takes The The Fifth Again At House Hearing
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.
Mr. Cummings, you are not the committee nor the chair of the committee.
Rush will get right on it as soon as he finishes talking about the NFL for 2 hours.
Another intellectual giant of the Congressional Black Ca-cas......
Obviously, pleading the fifth ten times in a row indicates GUILT! Wake up America.
She’s pleading again. You’re right. Special Counsel for this and Benghazi.
You mean talking about himself for two hours.
The entire IRS is an enemy of free people.
Daryl Issa is a do-nothing son of a bitch republican.
Everybody knows. Good luck this morning.
Cummings is an idiot.
You forgot the half hour talking about tea and children’s books.
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, Ive 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.
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
adding to that...
a president who has a pen and a phone ....and could change election law at a whim (suggested by Trey Gowdy in recent Abuse of power hearings)
He told reporters that they would continue their investigation without her testimony..what a wuss
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.
This is the remainder of Cummings comments that were not captured in the other video.
No evidence of wrongdoing . only gross mismanagement
Elijah Cummings Goes Ballistic After Issa Adjourns Hearing & Accuses Him of “Un-American” Behavior
Oversight Committee: Lerner Waived Her 5th Amendment Right
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???
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?
Not like being “under oath” matters to her. She’s just going to lie anyway.
