Another good point. “I refuse to answer” can just change to “I don’t recall.”
What’s the value of Congressional/Senate immunity? It’s not like John Dean et al. didn’t get prosecuted anyway.
It’s a tradeoff. We could send her to jail, but then there would be no reason for her to give us Obama, Pelosi, Biden, or whomever else would be even more worth it to send to jail.
Huh, anyone want to bet on what kind of accident befalls her?
The GOPe won’t do squat
How much does she know, and who can she implicate? Since Watergate the White Huts have learned how to protect the Big Kahuna!
O boy! IRS Jeooardy!
I’ll take heart attack for $500 Jack
She could pull a Webb Hubbell
In UK they are Euthanizing over 10,000 a month:
130,000 elderly patients killed every year by death pathway, claims leading UK doctor

LONDON, June 21, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An eminent British doctor told a meeting of the Royal Society of Medicine in London that every year 130,000 elderly patients that die while under the care of the National Health Service (NHS) have been effectively euthanized by being put on the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP), n a protocol for care of the terminally ill that he described as a death pathway.
Once Obamacare death panels kick in.....and scaled for relative population size...that makes something like 750,000 euthanizing events a year in the USA.
Well then, put her in jail with a gaggle of reporters and leave them there.
Trey Gowdy: NO WAY were giving Lois Lerner immunity,PERIOD!
Many thanks for the ping, hoosiermama!
Get that IRS mmmmm...... person on the stand!
From the link upthread:
“...However, Ms. Lerners name is not the only one on that document belonging to an IRS employee. Consider the name Renee Railey Norton, who appears to be the one responsible for processing Maliks 501(c)(3) approval. Ms. Lerner is on paid leave, raking in $3400 / week. Is Ms. Norton on paid leave or is she still working in Cincinnati?..”
Speaker of the House Trey Gowdy has a nice ring to it! B^)
i don’t believe she can demand it. they can compel her to testify.
somehow i don’ t think she wants to spend the rest of her life in jail refusing to testify.
In the Bush era, a top former IRS official who demanded immunity in a case involving targeting of opposition political groups would be a HUGE story. I just checked, and did not see it anywhere on my MSNBC default home page or on my local newspaper website. Maybe it’s there, buried beneath piles of celebrity and “lifestyle” crap, but you get the idea. The MSM is a colossal joke, a very bad joke.
IIRC, the sergeant at arms' authority no longer extends beyond the curb of Capitol Hill.
Nor is there anywhere to keep her in custody. The Capitol Jail is not capable of feeding or keeping prisoners overnight.
Some years ago, Congress agreed to rely on the Justice Dept in matters like these. The understanding was that, even if the administration was an opposition party, they would act in good faith in such matters.
But this Justice Dept isn't going to arrest or jail anybody at the behest of the Republican House.
