KNOXVILLE, Tenn., May 22, 2013 — President Obama has finally met his match. After years of deflecting and blaming others for numerous scandals, he finds himself up against one man with superior skills.
South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy speaks with a slow Southern drawl. While coastal snobs may consider him a “hick” or a “hilbilly,” Gowdy is all brains. Unlike some politicians, he has actually in his lifetime held gainful and meaningful employment. He was a prosecutor, and his interrogation skills reflect a superb intellect.

It remains to be seen if Issa has the stones to recall that skank and force her testimony.
Lawyers need to do their homework and work this until a whole bunch of people are in jail.
Keep working their way up the ladder.
At what point can she be slapped with a charge of Contempt of Congress?
He just did...hearing is in recess, not adjourned, until Lerner is recalled to testify...we’ll see huh??
Trey will make them get over the belief that a Southern drawl equals stupidity.
Issa just made the statement that she may have waived her right to use the 5th Amendment against self-incrimination by presenting facts in an opening statement. Apparently they’ve been doing some legal work on this and it appears they are of the opinion that she will be compelled to testify now. WOW!!!
"Republicans on the committee thought they had been defeated, but Gowdy knew better. Once a person issues a statement, Fifth Amendment privilege is waived on the substance of the statement. By issuing an opening statement, Ms. Lerner was testifying. Her right to stay silent on that testimony was gone forever.
A panicked liberal Elijah Cummings of Maryland pointed out that while congressional hearings are like a court of law, they are not in actuality a court of law. Even Congressman Issa, normally a very sharp and prepared operator, had to check on whether Gowdys interpretation applied.
It absolutely does."
Got her!! Nail her lying hide to the wall!!
Nice! Apparently, her high powered lawyer is no match for Mr. Gowdy.
Very, very good news. The Teflon’s cracked, now break it open the rest of the way.
Barring any sudden illness or perhaps a concussion?
It is happening.
I am somewhat embarassed to admit where I learned it.
A very early episode of LAW AND ORDER.
I like Gowdy. I didn’t even know who he was until a couple of weeks ago. We need more Republicans like this dude.
And this ladies and gentlemen is why you actually make them appear and assert their 5th amendment right in person instead of just telling them they don’t have to come after receiving a letter from their lawyer saying that they intend to invoke that right if compelled to appear.
And Issa did not adjourn but only went into recess. Those witnesses are coming back including Lerner, I bet.
Let Dowdy loose on ‘em. :)
For some reason, I thought it applied to questions.
But if she sill refuses to testify, what can Issa do? Contempt of Congress? She will just thumb her nose at him.
