    Didn't she say she wouldn't testify without immunity? There must be some sort of a deal, or she'd not come forward. If not, then there will be so many pleadings of the fifth that nothing much will be learned.

    I don't recall her saying she would testify without immunity but I haven't been keeping a close eye on this lately. I would hope, for Issa's sake, he can connect the dots and isn't being setup to look foolish.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    After reading the thread, this tune popped into my head:

    There sure is.

    Rep. Darrell Issa doesn’t know what he’s talking about, the attorney for former IRS official Lois Lerner said Sunday.

    Issa, the California Republican who chairs the House Oversight and Reform Committee, told “Fox News Sunday” that Lerner, the former head of the IRS tax-exempt division, would testify before his committee Wednesday, which he said he had been told by her attorney.

    That attorney, William W. Taylor, said Issa is wrong.

    “As of now, she intends to continue to assert her Fifth Amendment rights,” Taylor told POLITICO. “I do not know why Issa said what he said.”

    "Former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner, a central figure in the IRS scandal, will appear before Congress Wednesday after refusing to testify last year on the matter, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said Sunday.

    Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, told “Fox News Sunday” that Lerner’s lawyers said she will testify before his committee, after saying last week that she would not.
    “It’s going to be a good, fact-finding hearing,” he said.
    Issa said he didn’t know why Lerner’s lawyers changed their mind, but suggested Lerner testifying was “in her best interest,” considering the recent evidence the committee had gathered."

    Dude, didn't you get the memo? The weaponizing of the IRS against certain political ideologies is a fake scandal.

    It appears that Issa's committee has written confirmation from Lerner's lawyer that she will testify if a one week delay is granted.
    ************************************************** *********************
    A committee spokeswoman, Caitlin Carroll, said Sunday that Taylor had “confirmed in writing” that Lerner was willing to testify but that she was requesting a one-week delay.

    “We have informed Mr. Taylor that Ms. Lerner may make her request for a delay on Wednesday when she appears for the hearing,” Carroll said
