Posted on 03/07/2014 4:40:37 PM PST by Nachum
Lois Lerner has answered questions for the DOJ investigation into the IRS targeting scandal, but continues to invoke her Fifth Amendment rights before the congressional committee.
It's an interesting decision, albeit not without precedent. Either Lerner feels that the committee is doing nothing but setting "perjury traps" for her, or else she's assured that the DOJ "investigation" is little more than an exercise in making the scandal disappear, and thus is helping the department craft a narrative designed to do just that. Or both.
There are, of course, a number of good reasons for objective observers to suspect that Lerner's motives are less than pure:
(1) The DOJ investigation is being led by an Obama donor -- a highly unusual circumstance
(2) Attorney General Eric Holder himself has a checkered history when it comes to favoritism among non-profits.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I’m sure this will make things all better. Nothing found, move along.
I am betting this has been an ongoing conversation.
I’m sure DOJ will turn over everything it finds to
the pertinent committees.....NOT.
slime balls at DOJ and IRS
A constitutional republic will not function with a corrupt AG. This is a perfect example. The congress does not have the power to compel testimony when they know their referrals of wrong doing will be ignored by the justice dept. There was a slim chance the DC circuit could address wrong doing but Obama and Reid fixed that with their stacking of the court.
Justice delayed is justice denied.
You’d better cover for me Eric or that mustache will be hangin’ ou’cherass !
Why wouldn’t she be offered immunity? IMO, that should have been put out there at the beginning, where she wouldn’t have had time to sync up stories with her RAT brothers. No, the republican screwed that up too. And they want our votes like they have been protecting us all along.
Here is a primer discussing Congressional inquiry, subpoena, and enforcement powers.
“talking to the DOJ”? More like a debriefing where she’s told what to say.
Thanks, I will read it.
I’m sure the meeting was cordial and “constructive”.
I’ll bet the most substantial issue discussed was whether to order the sea bass or the snapper
Yeah, sure they are questioning her. “Lois, are you comfortable? Can we get a pillow for you? Are you upset about what the mean people are saying about you?”
She should steer well clear of Fort Marcy Park.
Time for a special prosecutor.
She agrees with what was done to Conservative nonprofits. She knows that there will be no consequences for her silence so immunity or not she has no reason to talk.
