    and you term that democrat driven theatre. your characterization is stunningly off the mark

    issa ended the committee hearing after inviting cumings to ask a question but before allowing him to do so
    such an indication the republicans' intent is to get the truth out
    Lerner's attorney had sent Issa a response indicating that she would testify.

    and she did testify
    only not as issa had hoped ... too bad he earlier misrepresented to the press what to expect in the form of her testimony. but that speaks to his double digit IQ
    issa took a **** in the pool he was swimming in

    Drama begets drama, after your many accusations.
    Meanwhile, you can bet Cantor/Boehner are furious at I$$A for looking like the buffoon that he was today.
    America sees the one-sided discussions here, cutting off mics .

    Civil servants should only relinquish their 5th amendment rights when it comes to the people's work they do, for which they are paid by the people. She is a spokesman for the IRS in this situation. Should the IRS have the right to withhold its actions and procedures from us altogether? Should it be free to act as they wish without threat of recourse?

    Since the GOP House is incapable of anything these days, let's take this 5th amendment doscussion to the USSC, along with any 'scandals' you want .

    while i agree it is a stupid position, it is yours
    that a civil servant should not be able to invoke the fifth amendment against self incrimination
    so many on the far right are now revealing they are opposed to the provisions of the US Constitution
    pathetic
