Look Issa, just turn this thing over to Trey Gowdy and let the pit bulldog handle it. You and the rest of your miniature poodle friends can sit back and learn how to skin and BBQ a rat.

Even if she is charged and found in contempt will it matter?

holder was found in contempt. What price has he paid?

Why wait? Yawn.

Because Issa is all hat, no cattle. Always has been. Phony to the core, pro-amnesty, suspect on Middle East.

Watching Issa, I see absolutely no passion in him. It’s like he is just reciting questions he thinks the people want him to ask, but without any conviction. Emotions are one of the most effective tools in a prosecutors arsenal and can go a long way in swaying opinion. Obviously, you want facts, but if the defendant isn’t giving them up, that’s no reason to just let them waltz out freely without at least tearing them a new one. I agree that Gowdy should be running this show.

I hope somebody knows how to get them to talk. Holding them in contempt is a good start, but it’s pretty toothless. Wasn’t Holder found in contempt? And did it affect him in any way or get him to turn over the documents? Not that I recall.

They need a Special Prosecutor, but I believe such a person would have to be appointed by ... Holder. So I don’t know what hope there is of that.

Issa says committee could consider holding Lerner in contempt next week.

So in other words Issa's committee could consider maybe talking about possibly holding Lerner in contempt perhaps next week? I am so tired of this mealy-mouthed BS. Don't talk. Do. Either charge her or shut up about it.

Could consider?

Might possibly but not necessarily think about?

“Issa says committee holding Lerner in contempt next week”....

Note I made a minor change to the headline by removing two words which are “Could” and “Consider”. There is no need to delay this any longer so make it happen. Everyone in this country and half the world knows she is guilty. JAIL!!!

No, these idiots in DC are not stupid, that is what they want you to think. They are in cahoots with the Lois Learners. The Lois Learners are merely doing their bidding. That is why they protect them. And to protect them, they must be seen as inept in the eyes of the sheep. That way, the sheep can vent their frustrations and everyone is happy, happy, happy.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said of her refusal, “at some point Lerner must testify” or be held in contempt

That point will be reached well into the 101st century. But she has been warned.

"Consider" away. I'll believe it when it actually happens.

And a contempt charge by Congress is like a time out for a toddler.

If Issa holds her in contempt, will the rest of the Republican reps back him up and throw her in jail?

Nope, Barry will use "executive privilege" once again and all will be said and done.

Perfect point. They should have all the records(they are afraid to subpoena). Call her and everyone in the chain of command.Withhold and possibly cancel her pension as she has not done her job and refuses to comment on her job activities. That will get her squirming. Then charge her for contempt when she fails to verify her own work records(emails?). She can’t invoke the fifth and thus can’t invoke it after she answers one question. Ask her what her title at work was. She is done after answering same. If she refuses, revoke her pension and fire her on the spot. They go UPHILL until all are gone or they talk.

I love your ideas. No pension and jail time sound like good incentives to start someone talking.

“....COULD move as early as next week to CONSIDER holding former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt.”

Issa is like the kamikazee pilot who flew 32 missions. He doesn’t understand commitment.

Why not give her immunity and when you catch her in a lie, and she will lie, throw her under the jail.
