Lerner Will Refuse To Testify Before Congress Unless She Is Given 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.

Agreed, I would put her in jail just to make a point, then give her immunity so we can see where this directive originated from.

I mean, if I refused to testify in criminal proceedings, " FU your honor, give me immunity from my crimes and I'll testify", what would happen to me?

Obama and ValJar are probably planning her droning, audit and intimidation and harassment of her family as I type this.

If she gets immunity she could sing like a bird and take Obama down. Obama won't have this.

Contempt of Congress.
A clear message to us lowly American subjects from our Bureaucratic Overlords that they don't believe they answer to us.
Lerner is OUR boss.

if they give her immunity, she will claim SHE did it all HERSELF.

But I thought she didn't do anything wrong? Isn't that what she said?

you wouldn't have to testify. the prosecutor might strike a deal with you if they think you'll give them a bigger fish. If you didn't get the deal you'd have all the evidence they have used against you but you don't have to go up and testify against yourself.

I would bet that the bigger fish is already set-up to be someone way under Obama. ValJar has probably been working around the clock setting this up.

Obama is after all above the law.

Yea, honestly this does happen pretty often. Specifically in drug cases.

"I am innocent - I broke no law - I broke no statue - I did nothing wrong" = "I will not tell you more because I may incriminate myself" = "I want immunity from prosecution."

Sounds about right to me.

Nothing to see here - move on - It's all Issa's fault.

When they took the vote and had committee discussion there was a dem female that actually said Lerner can plead the fifth- again. Apparently even outside counsel said negative-she can't.

This. What a sorry state of affairs.

What makes it all the more sad is that if the electorate fulfilled their responsibility of being educated and informed, this kind of assclownery would not go overlooked.

Every single instance of abuse of power and irresponsibility turns into a partisan mud-slinging debacle.
