    What? A whole $14 million you say? They spent $3 million on shrimp treadmills, Watergate had spent some $8 million in February of 1974, any guess what that would be in today's money?

    I say trying to feign fiscal responsibility only when demo's and the WH may be in the cross hairs, is telling.

    Greetings, Fearandloathing.



    We can only speculate, but the opening question seems odd, and taking the fifth out of the gate would suggest there has been a verbal agreement that somehow went awry.
    I get the impression she is trying to avoid perjury charges stemming from her first appearance, but the Republicans for whatever reason are holding he feet to the fire, which if there is any suggestion the White House is involved, is a very stupid move.

    I doubt very much Cumming's orchestrated objections will have much impact beyond the chattering Obamalemmings.

    Actually, we do have something to show for it. Lois Lerner has admitted that she broke the law. The American people deserve to know what laws she et. el. broke and justice needs to be dealt out.

    As far as Cummings is concerned, his outburst today was out of fear. He knows that if the truth comes out, some people are going down. He might be one of them.

    Re: Lois Lerner does about-face, will give Hill testimony on IRS scandal

    Reading the last three pages, I'm finding that most posting in this thread seemingly have not been reading or watching the news since the scandal broke in 2012. The questions some folks have show that such is a strong possibility.

    I wonder why FauxNews is seen as Republican mouth piece -- Fox News host: ‘Equal time’ is 7 minutes for Darrell Issa, only 1 minute for Democrats and Fox News warns IRS official: Testify if you want the death threats to stop
    And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.

    What do you mean no scandal to be found?

    Is it not scandalous that a highly placed IRS official would violate the law of the land and harass political opponents?

    I think you are only concerned with what sewage sticks to the White House in saying no scandal has been found which is egregiously self interested, showing that you do no care about corruption in government so long as your guy is saved harmless.

    Sorry if this offends you, but that is what's wrong with American politics and the real reason you USED to be the greatest nation on earth.

    If they offer her amnesty, then she will no longer be able to plead the 5th, right? If she can't be incriminated, then the answers can't incriminate her, anyway, that's how it looks to me. Maybe there is something in the law I don't know about.

    So, why not give her amnesty and then ask the questions again?
