IRS Scandal: Lois Lerner Wants Immunity

lois lerner

Seems “retired” IRS Senior Executive Lois Lerner wants immunity before being called again to testify at Congressional Oversight Committee hearings regarding the IRS targeting Obama political opponents for special scrutiny and privacy invasion.

IRS scandal figure Lois Lerner is negotiating through her lawyers with Rep. Darrell Issa’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about possibly gaining immunity to testify again in the committee’s investigative hearings.

Funny, that, given her assertion in those hearings that:

“I have not done anything wrong. I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations”

Why, that would make any notion of immunity quite unnecessary, were it true.  But she is indeed seeking immunity.   She may already be facing a perjury charge if she is found to knowingly have violated IRS rules with her actions, or allowed others to do so under her supervision.   That would make her a liar, and that, under oath.

As for the President, a while back he parroted that rock-solid font of unvarnished truth, Jay Carney, in calling the use of the IRS as a political cudgel against political opponents a “phony scandal”.  Because Barack Hussein Obama is a liar also, he of the inveterate type.   In fact, can anyone tell me the last time Barack Obama said something to the American people what was actually true?  About Benghazi?  About the IRS scandal?  About unemployment?  The economy?  Tony Rezko?  Obamacare?  Syria?  The NSA?  About guns?  The weather?  Sequestration?  ANYthing?

  1. The rat reaches for her life jacket. Good, hand it to her, provided she squeals on the rats above her.

    1. Let her squeal. Let her speak her complete piece then examine everything she’s said, from the beginning, and if she has perjured herself, the deal is invalid and she stands trial with the rest of the rats.

      Frankly, I’d be tempted to simply hang the lot of them just for the entertainment in it.

      1. Her deal almost inevitably is a request for immunity for perjury. Right now, it’s the only thing a prosecutor could even come close to proving was a criminal act.

    2. Brad, much would depend on just what has been uncovered so far. I’m sure we haven’t heard everything. I would agree with you on what is publicly known at this point, although I think some of that may rise to criminal behavior.

      Part of the deal, however, should include some loss of pension and other retirement benefits.
