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.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
