    That's true. May find out something you didn't know or couldn't prove before.

    So immunity or special prosecutor? Or both?

    I don't think that this is going to end here. The committee wants to know something from testimony and isn't getting it, they are likely not going to stop here and keep going until they find out what they want to know.

    I appears that Obama/Rahm/Axelrod/etc threatened this lady and her family's lives not to say one solitary word about any of this.

    Cummings is just doing as he was told. Start the distraction train, change the subject, and wait for the uneducated lemmings to see a shiny object and stop caring.

    Embarrassed by Issa? How stupid.

    Are you embarrassed that a government employee refuses to answer questions regarding the use of the IRS to target political opponents to affect an election?

    We're witnessing the most overtly corrupt, wildly abusive, and character-flawed administration in U.S. history, and half of our populace doesn't give a crap.

    Link?

    Evidence?

    Oh, you said it "appears."

    Understood.

    It "appears," to me that this is just an opinion coming from another Texan.

    Hook 'em Horns.

    I wonder what's in the proffer Issa wants kept quiet?

    A government employee paid by taxpayer dollars who's accused of misusing her position to threaten taxpayers? No, she shouldn't be allowed to invoke the fifth amendment. She's not a private citizen in that regard.

    She should not have been allowed to publicly state her innocence of any wrong doing and get that on the record and then take the fifth.
