    Lois Lernerís price for testimony: Immunity

    Embattled IRS official Lois Lerner will not testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee unless sheís given immunity from prosecution, her lawyer told POLITICO Tuesday.
    My... another transparent Obama administration employee.

    Well... I think we should go into the files and see who she and her Gestapo style Posse called, and for how long and how often. If they can log our calls... I'm sure they would be watching our little IRS/Gestapo too.

    Put those records to good use... lets' have Lerner and her Posse of Taxholes at bat, and learn a thing or two more about how these thugs operate.

    By what right will she not testify? I didn't know testifying was optional.

    It had to come down to this. Testimony comes with a price tag. Who knows what the truth might cost?

    She has invoked her 5th Amendment rights.

    If you want the truth then immunity will be appropriate. The political hostility that leads people to twist people's words and engage in trickery are the reason people are like this. "Well early you testified that the file was big and now you are saying it is large. Which is it, big or large and why are you changing your story?"

    It's my understanding that a court ruled that, since she gave a statement, she effectively waived those rights. ??

    Guess Ms. Lerner and her attorney are aware of the criminality involved and rather than falling on her sword for the higher-ups and Obama in this case she will ask for immunity and tell all she knows. I'm sure that the Lame Stream Media and the Progressive criminals in DC will demonize her as soon as she tells all.

    News to me this has been litigated in relation to her. You have a link to that as I have not seen it reported? Either way, the most she could get would be a year for not testifying and being in contempt of Congress.

    The Left seems to been paying high prices for silence lately, in some cases it's been bloody. Now I'm not saying that something might happen to Ms. Lerner, however there has been some discussion previously about the deaths of people within the church Obama used to attend. Didn't Jesse Jackson Jr. just get sent down the river. Heard there's a reunion for Dems at the Federal prison. Blago and Rezko will sing a duet for them.

    If this slime ball wants full immunity then what is prevent her from simply lying and saying the she acted "alone", taking her full retirement (and whatever other perks are offered to her) and helping to put the matter to rest?

    I guess I'm wrong here...it seems it was the committee -- I sure thought I read it was a court, though. Anybody?

    A House Republican-led committee approved a resolution Friday declaring that high-ranking IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination by delivering a statement before the committee in May.

    Edit: Nah, don't bother looking. I was wrong.
