Lois Lerner’s price for testimony: Immunity

Embattled IRS official Lois Lerner will not testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee unless she’s given immunity from prosecution, her lawyer told POLITICO Tuesday.

“They can obtain her testimony tomorrow by doing it the easy way … immunity,” William W. Taylor III said in a phone interview. “That’s the way to resolve all of this.”

The comments reflect the hard-line approach Lerner, the former head of the IRS division that scrutinized conservative groups, and her legal team are taking in defending her role in the agency’s scandal.

Taylor, a founding partner of Zuckerman Spaeder LLP, is even shrugging off the possibility that the full House might vote to hold Lerner in contempt.

No immunity1 Just because congress gives her immunity doesn't mean she is going to give congress any information that might lead to the White House's involvement in targeting conservatives groups.

Excellent point!!!

Why should she get any kind of immunity when according to her, she did nothing wrong.

Hang the witch, she helped the owebomb get a second term by her actions and screwed the nation.

RE: Your Pic...

Did she actually have the audacity to say that?  'I Am Above The Law'?  No, lady.... You are an IRS slimeball.  You need to get this, and get it straight:  You are in comtempt of CONgress for refusing to answer questions.  You are in contempt of the PEOPLE for that startement.  You need to go and join with the savant in chief and leave for Kenya immediately.

Your to kind

she sure has the obama pose down doesn't she

Give her immunity, and she'll lie anyway!

Why does she need immunity.....she said she did nothing illegal!!!!!!  But wait a minute, could that have been a fib?  Sounds like another case of lying before a Congressional committee.

If she does spill the beans, she had better have a very good 24-7 protection from those that don't want the whole story told!

If not guilty - why immunity?

SHE SHOULD GET WHAT I WOULD GET IF FOUND GUILTY...........PROBABLY 30 TO LIFE!!!!!!!!

SHE WILL JUST LIE ABOUT EVERYTHING, BLAME SOMEONE ELSE, NOT ONE OF THEM CAN TELL THE TRUTH!!!

Excellent point!!! 

I think that you are very correct, goodie !  Treat her like any other American.  Jail her !  Obama will let her out when he leaves office, maybe.

INDICT the &%*$#%^& BIT*H she will squeal like the PIG that she is!!!!!!! & Bring the ADMINISTRATION DOWN. She already gave up her right to the 5th by answering questions before her plead , The mighty will fall SONER than later !!!!!!!

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
