I wonder if Lerner is still going to plead the fifth. She’s stupid if she does. Waiting patiently.

Mr. Chairman, on the advice of counsel, I respectfully decline to answer because of my constitutional rights and privileges, including the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution.

I hope Issa makes her sit there for hours repeating her 5th Amendment plea!

Why are you pleasing the 5th?

Do you think you've committed a crime or crimes?

Who told you to target Conservatives?

Here's a theory:

Lerner is taking the 5th because she's in deep doo-doo. Guilt of serious crimes, crimes that can get her a few years in the federal pen.

Remember, it's not really easy for a former IRS top official, accused of, let's call it "taxpayer abuses" to find a sympathetic jury, let alone an impartial one.

So maybe this is her attempt to get immunity. Issa should giver it to her, assuming she spills EVERYTHING, and names names. IT would lead right into the WH, and possibly to the Oval office.

One problem for Issa, though. The DoJ ( Holder) would have to sign off on the grant of immunity. What are the odds he approves that? ( snicker, snicker...)

Anyone wanna wager me that you’ll hear at least one of the following phrases in the hearing?

“I don’t know!”
“I don’t recall!”
“I don’t remember!”

Issa should have done that already. Whether the AG goes along with it or not, it's a win-win for Issa.

Thanks for the thread and ping.
It’s pretty boggling to look at were we are today as this Administration collapses under its own weight.

Interesting take here on WH counsel as a person of interest

So maybe this is her attempt to get immunity. Issa should giver it to her,

Would be great if an actual FReeper attorney would get on the thread to provide the technicalities around immunity

Shouldn't SecTreas be called in and asked about his knowledge of what could possibly impel Ms Lerner to exercise her Constitutional rights in this matter?

Pleading the fifth just makes her look guilty, so it doesn’t matter either way. We all know what she did, there are records. She better hope the legal advice she’s getting is the best in the country. There are people sitting in prison that wish they had done the opposite of what their lawyer told them to do.

It seems that Jack Lew gave testimony yesterday.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3022366/posts

“. . . he was aware ‘questions had been raised’ about the IRS when he was at the White House:

Jack Lew was confirmed as Treasury Secretary at the very end of February. That means the White House had to have been aware of the targeting before that confirmation, say January or February.

I can’t find it now, but I recall seeing where Carney claimed that discussions about this did not go further back than April, I think.

Don't ask a question you don't already know the answer too.

The construct of the written questions hasn't been discussed much.

They were very lawyerly in their wording. Much like interrogatories. NWIH were these written by some low level clerk typist.
