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.

She is absolutely in Contempt of a Congressional Investigation!!!!

I think lois knows that she is in a world of shit, and the congressional investigators should read her, her rights, then charge her with criminal conspiracy at a minimum. the only way that I would give her immunity..is that she has to give up who ordered her to do what they did...and how high up the chain does this go, and then resign from government service immediately.

INSTEAD OF IMMUNITY, HOW ABOUT FRIED BALOGNA, EGGS AND GRAVY WHILE YOU ARE IN MAX LOCK DOWN IN FT. LEAVENWORTH WITH ALL OF THE MEN PRISONERS ?

Let her rot in Hell.

No immunity.  Tell us everything and then maybe we will not throw you in jail for the rest of your life.

No Immunity hold her in contempt and prosecute her. Eric Holder To.

FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT ARE DUMB ENOUGH TO THINK THAT OBAMA IS GOING TO GO AWAY ANYTIME SOON, MAY I REMIND YOU THAT HE IS ONLY ONE SIGNATURE (HIS OWN) AWAY FROM  DECLARING MARTIAL LAW, AND AT THAT POINT IN TIME, HE CAN STAY IN POWER FOR HOW EVER LONG HE WANTS OR FOREVER HOW LONG HE "LIVES." ????????

....or... until our Military decided to live their Oath

I bet she regrets not blowing the whistle like Snowden...hmm?  Now she's up a creek without a paddle, begging for mercy.

I have fun game. Let's call all govt agencies and ask for 'Truth in Government', let see what kind of response we get.  Sheesh, we have oxy-morons running our govt.

NO immunity for liars and thieves; throw their butts in prison until such time as they are willing to "answer truthfully"!  Plenty of charges can be levied against her; start with being "an accomplice to treason"!

First take her for contempt of Congress (which, EXCEPT under oath, is completely understandable).

Then, RETAIN her in custody until all facts that she will reveal, are eventually verified.

I am confident her respect for the interests of the American people would grow greatly.

AS AN EX SENIOR RANKED LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER AND A DEGREED PERSON IN BUSINESS LAW AND CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, CITE HER IN CONTEMPT, LOCK HER BUTT UP, INSTRUCT HER THAT SHE GETS SOME FREEDOM THE MINUTE SHE SPILLS HER GUTS 100% AND THAT INCLUDES HER WHITE HOUSE CONNECTIONS, BUT UNTIL THEN SHE CAN LOUNGE HER DAYS AND NIGHTS AWAY IN THE JAIL OF THE CONGRESS'S CHOICE.

"END OF CONVERSATION LADY." TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT.

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.
