Former IRS official Lois Lerner refuses to testify, unless she gets immunity

Recall that Lerner was very forceful in telling Congress that she did nothing wrong. Recall that she also took her fifth amendment privilege, so as not to testify. Now, Ms. I Did Nothing Wrong wants immunity to testify. If she did nothing wrong, what does she need immunity from? Weasel Zippers has more

Via Politico:

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.

I just cannot wait until goons like her are running my health care!

  1. Unless they get facts that will domino, immunity is just CYA.
