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 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!
