But you don't, because you are blinded by your own partisanship. You will defend your guys at all costs because they are your guys. Truth be damned. Very impressive.

    Issa, House GOP investigative committee say Lerner will testify in IRS scandal hearing | Fox News

    This claim came from Issa, and was immediately denied by Lerner's attorneys.

    Now, either Lerner's attorneys are lying; in which case Issa has only to produce the correspondence where Lerner agreed to testify.
    - or -
    Issa is lying, and his only motivation for making Lerner take the stand was for political theatre.

    Now, Issa has repeatedly engaged in selective document releases. If Lerner had agreed to testify, then Issa would happily release the documents.

    I don't care what side of the isle you're on, in this one instance the case is a slam dunk. ISSA WAS LYING when he said that Lerner had agreed to testify.
    Thank you for providing zero evidence that Issa lied. Now try and focus here on the real issue if you can--why is Lerner taking the Fifth?

    You have the IRS Kommisar at the center of this mess taking the Fifth. Why would she do that if there is no 'fire'?

    Cummings job quite obviously is to divert attention and keep this from trickling to the top. If you don't believe Obama and Holder are behind this, you are a sadly nave and gullible fool. Or worse.

    Naive and gullible fools believe in things for which there is no evidence.

    Where is your evidence that Holder and Obama are behind this?

    If Lerner did not answer any questions, I don't understand what Cummings had to say anyway. It had become a dead issue.

    Please explain why Issa said that Lerner had changed her mind and agreed to testify. Because I'm pretty sure she took the 5th again.

    (and I know... such a convoluted conspiracy... involving exactly one person telling one lie in which exactly one person benifits... shocking!)
    Perhaps Lerner changed her mind because of political pressure or a woman's prerogative. I don't know and, unlike you, I don't pretend to know.

    The facts are not on your side.

    Hard to acquire "evidence" when the accused refuses to talk.
