House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa has subpoenaed an attorney in the White House counsel's office, who used to serve as counselor to the head of the IRS, to testify about the missing emails of former agency official Lois Lerner.

The committee sent a letter on June 19 asking for Jennifer O'Connor to appear at a Tuesday hearing about the missing emails, as a part of its investigation into IRS targeting of conservative groups.

However, O’Connor’s boss, White House Counsel W. Neil Eggleston, responded by telling the committee O’Connor’s testimony was not necessary.

If Cummings is against it, you know there’s something incriminating there. Possibly a link to the White House, or she may have conspired with Cummings himself to hise evidence.

Subpoenas don’t seem to carry much weight when someone can just refuse to come forward and testify, why is that allowed? Contempt charges don’t seem to mean much either (Holder issue of a while back). Nothing ever gets done.

Gambit 1 - WH response as noted.

Gambit 2 - Claim of Executive Priviledge, tried and true, as used by klinton.

Gambit 3 - Claim "Special Protective Priviledge" - MSM runs up the "Constitutional Crisis Pennant" - SCOTUS "must" decide.

Gambit 4 ... When Issa looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, ... MUST BE A DUCK.

Nothing more here to be concerned about - NEVERMIND.

100% correct DaveA37, I think the same thing, and the media doesn't report on any of this, so frustrating.

“Before her promotion to the White House, Ms. O’Connor led the response to the congressional targeting inquiry, and she is uniquely qualified to explain why attorneys did not focus on and flag Lerner’s ‘lost’ emails at the outset,” Mr. Issa said in a written statement.

Ms. O’Connor served as counsel to the IRS commissioner between May and November 2013, and helped supervise the collection of documents that the IRS was providing to congressional investigators. She moved to the White House Counsel’s Office earlier this year, according to Republicans.

“Subpoenas don’t seem to carry much weight when someone can just refuse to come forward and testify, why is that allowed? Contempt charges don’t seem to mean much either (Holder issue of a while back). Nothing ever gets done:

It is the power of adverse publicity that backs up contempt of Congress charges. The administration thumbs its nose at Congress because it knows the old media has its back.

The old media’s definition of a scandal is “when the Washington post *says* it is a scandal”.

In other words, when a Republican jaywalks, it is a scandal, but a Democrat president (who is black) can commit crimes no one else would dream of getting away with, and it is not a scandal.

  Not only is it not a scandal, but it's a far right wing conspiracy theory. You could catch these people red handed and they'll never admit anything. They just keep spinning.
