    I think you are. It's smarter for her to just shut up at this point, no matter what happened.

    IF it's just a Republican witch hunt and she has nothing to hide, then why would she need to plead the fifth ?

    Your really struggling to circumvent the main issue here and now have veered off into nonsensical rhetoric.

    Lois Lerner, according to you was just doing her job, when does doing your job at the IRS mean you have to plead the 5th when your'e subpoenaed by Congress ?

    What power does the Republican House have first off and second, if she's "innocent" then pleading the fifth certainly gives the impression that she has something to hide AND make's Obama's administration look complicit.

    Well, first of all, you can't infer guilt from somebody pleading the fifth. Secondly, it is very prudent for her to keep her mouth shut no matter what happened, in view of the fact that there is a witch hunt going on. Partisanship rules the day, now, not law. The safest route for her is not to dig herself any deeper and keep her mouth shut. She must have a good lawyer.

    She's got to look out for herself, it's not her job to protect Obama especially after he hung her out to dry. I feel bad for the lady, she is an innocent victim in all this.

    That doesn't make sense. IF she wanted to "look out for her self" all she had to do was come out as a whistle blower and take advantage of the laws that are currently in place to protect her.

    Sure, pleading the Fifth doesn't equate to a guilty verdict but it doesn't establish any sense of innocence either.

    I don't feel sorry for her at all. She's a big girl, and I'm sure was taught at one time the difference between lies and truth.

    Her initial impromptu press release was all lies. She stated that it was low level front line nameless faceless bureacrats.

    We know better now. As soon as she agreed to push the new Narrative, that this was isolated and a way to increase effeciency she made her bed.

    Lets see what happens when a citizen goes before a IRS auditor and " pledges the Fifth "

    She didn't lie about anything. She did her job well, and she pushed the constitutional envelope. I don't see Republicans getting upset at unconstitutional profiling of various minorities, unconstitutional marriage restrictions, unconstitutional establishment of religion in the pledge of allegiance or on money, the hundreds of other instances where the government breaks its own rules. Selective outrage is all this is, and a witch hunt. You are not pursuing this is good faith. If you were to set your partisanship aside you'd see there is no issue here at all.

    That's a ludicrous thing to say.
