Issa Calls for Special Prosecutor in IRS Case; Suggests Immunity for Lerner
Breitbart ^ | 26 Jun 2014

Posted on 06/26/2014 11:13:04 AM PDT by mandaladon

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrel Issa (R-CA) demanded a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS over its targeting of conservative groups and the disappearance of emails from key officials.

Issa declared that IRS Commissioner John Koskinen is “not the ideal person, not even an appropriate person” to oversee the investigation into the IRS’ conducts, and that this case calls for a true, special, independent prosecutor who has the ability to issue warrants, to seize materials, to safeguard documents and other information before it goes away and get to the truth.”

He added that a special prosecutor will almost certainly not be named by President Barack Obama or Attorney General Eric Holder.

Issa added that the revelation that Lois Lerner improperly gave the personal information of donors to the Justice Department made it clear that her attorney should “take back that statement she made, that perjured statement that she broke no laws, she broke no regulations.” He concluded, “of course she broke laws and of course she broke regulations and we need to hold her accountable.”

Even though he said that Lerner was “biased,” “had an agenda,” and “broke laws,” Issa stated that he “absolutely” would be willing to give Lerner immunity “if she would deliver to us the explanation of who she worked with in this conspiracy.”

I think she would still lie even if given immunity. I want her to go to jail.

Never grant immunity unless you know for certain the information you are going to receive...never!

If Lerner gives up Hussein, I'm all for it.

Otherwise, no.

And she gives up Hussein first. Don't want her pulling a Lt. Col. North on us.

If he and Boehner would just have the Sergeant at Arms arrest her until the end of the session, they’d get all the publicity they need about what she’s done.

Go after her like you did then.

He may know it. Lois thinks she’s super smart by playing super-dumb (who, lil’ ol’ me and that big nasty computer thing?) but there’s no way she can hide all that correspondence forever.

Also, I believe government employees are not supposed to conduct official business on their personal laptops or phones, and she happened to mention that she was using her Blackberry for this.

And on top of it, wasn’t she the one using an alias to communicate? A man’s name, to throw people off? If it wasn’t Lois, it was some other higher up. In any case, there’s nothing innocent about that, and I’m sure there have been investigators poring over that too.

First of all Issa is dancing on the head of a pin in the absence of a Special Prosecutor, and running out the clock, and second, Lois Lerner will never give up Holder/Obama for any reason. Obama is a religious experience for her, so, “NO”, to immunity.

Besides, she seems quite safe having pleaded the 5th.

IRS hearings will get wider coverage when agency does something truly egregious, like closing a lane on a bridge.—

I believe you are remembering the EPA chief, and I believe she was forced out and resigned.

Issa said on OR the other night he had filed 4 criminal charges against her with DOJ and DOJ (read Holder/Obama) had done nothing?

It’s start to start impeachment proceedings on Holder.

Arrest the soldiers, they will give up the capos, the capos will give up the Don.
