Committee announces subpoena after White House Counsels office declines to make attorney who supervised IRSs response to congressional inquiry available for testimony
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., today issued a subpoena to Ms. Jennifer OConnor of the White House Counsels office for testimony on Tuesday, following Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner John Koskinens testimony this evening at 7 pm. The subpoena follows a letter from White House Counsel Neil Eggleston declining to make Ms. OConnor available on a voluntary basis as requested last Thursday. Chairman Issa issued the following statement on the issuance of the subpoena:
A year ago, when news broke that the IRS had targeted Americans because of their political beliefs, President Obama pledged, we will work with Congress as it performs its oversight role. Im disappointed that one year later, the White House has attempted to block this Committees first request for voluntary cooperation from a White House official. Before her promotion to the White House, Ms. OConnor led the response to the Congressional targeting inquiry and she is uniquely qualified to explain why attorneys did not focus on and flag Lerners lost e-mails at the outset.
The subpoena creates a legal obligation for Ms. OConnor to appear at Tuesdays hearing, IRS Obstruction: Lois Lerners Missing E-mails, Part II on Tuesday, June 24 at 9:30 am.

Will she have a headache?
Fall down a flight of stairs ?
Memory loss from slight concussion ?
Roasted to death in a single car crash and explosion ?
LOL! Tune in tomorrow. Same Bat Time. Same Bat Channel.
Well .. depending on the laws regarding lying to Congress .. she might lose her law license. So, I’m hoping she might just treasure her law degree, and the ability to practice law, over some criminals in the IRS.
Can we get an open thread?
I asked to make the one in Breaking a Live Thread. We’ll see.
It seems like all any of them do is simply refuse. It has worked some of the time already.
