Of course, C-SPAN is happy to up the gain on their mics to capture Cummings’ shouted talking points rehashing the old Democrat defensive arguments and excuses.

It would have been nice if the Fox commentators would have just STFU while the whole exchange was happening.

That was an interesting performance. Can, and will the committee do anything to compel her to give information?

Why is the microphone back one and the video feed still on. Also, Lerner is still at the witness table. Issa should have completely shut this down when he adjourned. This makes the GOP look weak.

That sure didn’t take long. The hard boiled eggs I put on at the beginning aren’t even finished. Issa ‘s got better things to do out of chambers than listen to her plead the fifth. Hope he finishes before the eggs do! Or I might throw a few!

In summary, Lerner took the Fifth ten times in rapid order and Issa adjouned the hearing as useless since she was being unresponsive.

Issa now needs to play serious hardball or look seriously weak.

Bet Issa knew Cummings would blow up - contempt charges could come later.

Cummings is up on ethics charges by the way - charges from Catherine Engelbrecht

“Can’t she be charged with contempt?”

The point is the republican establishment isn in the least upset with what she did. she wont ever be charged with anything.

Cummings sent 3 letters on House stationery with cc to Issa..to Catherine Engelbrecht. Harassment and ethics charges now against Cummings.

don’t know if you would call it being complicit, but he may be involved somehow.

what can be done

He can give her immunity.

Issa and the rest of the GOP electile dysfunction crew look like such idiots in this.

Looking back at Senator Sam Ervin and Congressman Peter Rodino - there were two politicians who set out to take down a guy who just won a national election with 520 electoral votes and 60.7% of the popular vote.

They understood the need to try the case in the court of public opinion - with a jury that started out heavily against them.

Obama after 2012 was much, MUCH less popular than Nixon in 1972, and yet his opponents were methodical, they were determined, and most importantly, THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WERE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH AND WHAT WAS NECESSARY TO REACH THE GOAL.

Issa and the rest of his crew are like teenaged boys passing around a dirty magazine. They have no long-term objective, no strategy, and no ability to plead their non-case to the public.

With a Republican Sam Ervin and a Republican Peter Rodino, this nightmare would already be over.
