Former IRS official Lois Lerner wants her testimony on the Tea Party targeting scandal to be kept from the public's eyes. She fears for her life, both she and her deputy Holly Paz claimed in a motion filed last Thursday.
Whenever Mss. Lerner and Paz have been in the media spotlight, they have faced death threats and harassment, the documents stated. Returning Mss. Lerner and Paz to the media spotlight places them at risk, regardless of what they actually said in those depositions.
The documents also stated that: Public exposure will put innocent bystanders, namely Mss. Lerners and Pazs family members (including young children), at risk, too. (Fox News)
In particular, Lerner pointed fingers at Mark Meckler, President of Citizens for Self Governance, for warning her that the lawsuit would "treat the IRS like the criminal thugs they are. Comments like that, she claimed, have created an environment that allows death threats to fester.
In an interview with Fox News, Meckler, who is also a co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, said he doesnt believe Lerner is fearing for her life and suggested she is trying to escape accountability.
Mark Meckler: Lois Lerner wants IRS testimony sealed to hide the truth from American people
The implication is really outrageous, he said. That what she said in that deposition about Tea Partiers is so bad that people will be outraged.
The American people have a right to know, Meckler said.
The little we do know is that for two years the IRS subjected conservative groups to extra scrutiny when applying for tax exempt status.
Under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the agency is beginning to make amends for its wrongdoing. Sessions announced last month that they had reached two settlements with right-leaning groups who were targeted by the Obama administration.
While Meckler denies being the cause of Lerners death threats, he notes that he of course doesnt support harassment against anybody even government officials.
Hey, we’re sending some of our finest to go over to Asian, African, and Middle Eastern hell holes to kill riff raff who are far less threatening to our democracy than this arrogant tyrant. She SHOULD be in fear for her life.
I’d much prefer “If you like your prison term, you can serve your full prison term.”
These documents need to be disclosed to the public. The apology under a new administration does not cut it. The IRS needs to have this sordid event in the agencys history laid bare, so that it does not happen again. The IRS and their employees wield a great deal of power over the people. We The People have a right to know the details of the scandal.
I do not believe that former IRS staff has been threatened by Tea Party Members.
Unadulterated bovine scatology.
The biggest lie 0bama told regarding ACA.
“The biggest lie 0bama told regarding ACA.”
Amongst a blizzard of lues. How about “it will save the average family $2,500 a year” for a knee slapper? Thanks McCain for saving this shit.
Lois is neither innocent not a bystander.
From Who? Name them!
Public exposure will put innocent bystanders, namely Mss. Lerners and Pazs family members (including young children), at risk, too.
Funny, the left said the families of conservative targets of their hatred were “fair game”.
We should know the facts; whether Lerner is fearful or not is of no concern.
$2500 PER YEAR!
I’m sure my check is in the mail.,..
Like O. J. Simpson, civil trials often catch up with the guilty that escaped through improper actions of others. She was the most despicable public employee and I hope she looses everything she values in life.
Pure projection from Lois Lerner.
It is what she would have done to her enemies.
When no justice is available, people begin to take it into their own hands.
Check out the vid of Lerner fleeing from a reporter in her neighborhood. Her next door neighbor refuses to let her hide in his house. Very gratifying.
The arrogant sneer Lerner flashed at the Senate was gone. She should be hounded to the end of her days unless she comes totally clean about harassing Tea Partyers. Unlikely, though.
False Flag danger claims just to hide their criminality.
....”the allegations have also dredged up Bill Clinton and his past allegations, which include rape”.....
He’ll slip by those as well....he’s not called Slick Willy for nothing.
I’d prefer “Remember the Ceausescus”.
