    All I have to say is that no matter what, Issa better have his ducks in a row. I smell a set up here if she's testifying without immunity. The committee better have some surprises.

    I hope so too, problem is that republican's have largely been blocked from getting anything of usefulness, so I really don't know what they plan of finding out, unless maybe Lerner is going to fall on her sword and take the blame to protect the President from further inquiry...I mean, what's she got to lose? She's already been given her 6 figure pension, and the lawyers will tap dance around any jail time, if there is any at all....I mean this ain't Scooter Libby we are talking about here, there are no calls to throw her under the jail like there was for him.

    Apparently, her Attorney expressed concern for her Safety in a few of the E-mails sent to Issa.

    Yes, Prison can be a dangerous place.

    How can liberals defend this? If you want to erect a massive government, that government has to be accountable to the people and the peoples representatives for its actions. The idea that a 'public servant' in one of the most powerful arms of government can refuse to cooperate with an investigation into possible governmental wrongdoing is unacceptable and should be unacceptable to those who put their faith in government most of all.

    They defend it by denial.... it's a "made up" scandal. Then why plead the 5th? Because it's a witch hunt. Then why won't the IRS just turn over all the info and be done with it? Because it's a vast right wing conspiracy.... and on and on and on.

    The time has come to find her in contempt and if possible, jail. Let her cool off there for as long as it takes to gain cooperation. I wish that would happen but I'm pretty sure it won't and the denial will continue while the truth suffers a horrible death at the hands of party politics.
