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.

Why does this piece of crap need immunity if she has done nothing illegal. Typical Obubba minion...we will only get the REAL truth if she won't go to jail for it. Another part of the way the Obubba administration works...the truth has to be bought and paid for. I wouldn't be surprised if she was thinking, "I'll throw as many people under the bus as necessary to ensure I don't go to jail". I want to say don't give her immunity, but if we don't, it will take years to get to the REAL truth if ever.

Why does she need immunity?  The fact that she requests immunity means like all the others she lied under oath!   You don't need immunity if as she said "did nothing wrong, broke no laws"!

We would have already been thrown in prison.

Raymond you are so right

Don't fold and grant Lerner Immunity, just cite her for contempt of congress and prosecute her.

No! She lied the first time, so she will lie again. Send her to jail and work on the next guy. That's what is wrong with our system now, we keep giving breaks. So much so, that people think it's okay to lie and cheat.

No Immunity....indict her for perjury.... throw her in jail after she is fired!

OPEN LETTER TO LOIS LERNER:

We, the American people, are more than aware of the fact that your boss, Obamanation, through his WH stooges, ordered this socialist attack against true patriots who refuse to surrender to a Marxist-Socialist pig and his piglets (Obamanation and his Obamabots). All you are doing is preventing or obstructing the revelation of the truth. In affect, you are hindering the investigation of this matter and if you continue, you will go to jail for a very long time! Face it; your career is over, because when we take down Obamanation and his stooges, guess what, we are coming for those who were criminally complicit!

Why don't they bring back tarring and feathering!

If any one of us common folk had done what Lerner did, WE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN JAIL ALREADY! How long will the wicked continue to cover for their master? How long until the American people get a little back bone and kick this Marxist-Socialist out of office? IMPEACH OBAMANATION....NOW!

OBAMA KNEW WHAT HE WANTED TO DO ..REMEMBER HE HIRED 16,000 IRS AGENTS WHEN HE FIRST TOOK OVER THE PRESIDENCY. HE ALSO SIGNED A BILL TO GIVE ALL EX-PRESIDENTS SECRET SERVICE PROTECTION FOR LIFE

WHY....................TO PROTECT HIS BUTT HE KNOWS THAT HE WILL NEED THE SECRET SERVICE AND THAT WILL COST US MILLIONS OF DOLLARS

There are no guarantees she'll be forthcoming even with immunity, but perhaps we will be able to garner a bit of the truth, enough to aid in getting to the bottom of this gross injustice to those who've been targeted.  This whole mess smells of rotten fish and has been a gross misuse of power.  I'd love to see someone be punished to the full extent of the law.  Perhaps that would help some of us begin to have a little faith in the system again.

Water board her ass!  Violate her rights as she violated the peoples.  Listen the more we mollycoddle the criminals in government the more brazen they become.  Pretty soon they'll have no cut contracts and signing bonuses just like the professional sports teams.  This is one lying official that needs to be made an example of to rest...this should start the movement to abolish the damn IRS along with the thugs and goons that work there!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
