Top IRS Official Will Take Fifth Before Congress

Tuesday, 21 May 2013 04:39 PM

By Greg Richter

The IRS official over the division that reviews tax-exempt applications will invoke her Fifth Amendment right not to testify before Congress, her lawyer says.

Lois Lerner was scheduled to appear Wednesday before the House Oversight Committee. But in a letter to committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., her lawyer says she will not offer testimony under her constitutional rights against self-incrimination, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"She has not committed any crime or made any misrepresentation but under the circumstances she has no choice but to take this course," said the letter from Lerner's defense attorney William W. Taylor III.

Taylor says in the letter that the Department of Justice has launched a criminal investigation into why conservative groups were targeted for extra scrutiny and that Issa's committee has asked Lerner for an explanation why she gave "false or misleading information" four times in 2012.

Taylor asked that Lerner be excused from appearing since she will not be answering questions. Since she will not testify, Taylor argued that making Lerner appear would "have no purpose other than to embarrass or burden her."

The inspector general's report said Lerner was made aware in June 2011 that agents had used terms such as "tea party" and "patriot" to single out groups for additional scrutiny. She ordered that the criteria be changed.

In testimony to Congress, however, she never admitted the practice had taken place, even when asked multiple times by legislators.

LOL, Yup the IRS is a good tool to use against someone you disagree with, you are a worse fool than I originally thought. This jiggin person sums him or her self up nicely right here no need for further comment.

The IRS itself admitted targeting conservative groups. Beginning to find out now some of these directives were coming fro D.C. the "low" level IRS employees are beginning to rat, they are tired of being thrown under the bus and they know criminal prosecutions are coming. Now, you are either really stupid or don't care if a powerful agency like the IRS is used to target political enemies of the administration in power, personally from what I have read you are both, stupid and don't care if abuse of power by the govt. is used against the party you disagree with. You are about as un American as it gets pal and part of the enemy within.

Grumpy, Its nice when jiggin posts. He shows what he knows, he shows what he fears and he shows just how much he wants to be on the winning side. No matter what

Let him rattle on.

I dont see to many jumpin out to defend his side.

Besides, I post most of this stuff to see what others think. He has as much right to rattle on as the rest of us. :wink:

I think he just doesnt want the handouts to stop. :roll:

Grumpy, as you can see with this post. jiggin thinks the tea party people thought up something new. He doesnt have a clue how long Liberal Org.s have been doing this without anything being said. So to him if a tea party group does it = dishonest, Liberal group = fine upstanding people

It is a simple world, find the side that is up at this time. Jump on their bandwaggon and ride it hard. :wink:

Now rod we know republicans and democrats both run dishonest organizations its nothing new one just does it better than the other. Did you really think john mccain had a chance to beat president obama just like i bet you put money on mitt romney why would you even think they could even win the election for the republican party they are on the run and the party has no future plans. The democrats on the other hand have Hillary clinton again very popular among democrats she will be very hard too beat for president. You as republicans can talk all the smack you want on here its going to get you no where anytime soon i dont take sides with either party. I just dont get all work up over a black man in the white house like you people do. You just need to get over it. Winning side tell us what the republican have too offer because it not been much lately. NO LEADER = PARTY ON THE RUN :lol:

Come to think of it.

Just who are you. I maybe wrong but havent you been kicked off westernbass a couple of times for just really dumb crap.


Seems like you are alway sticking your foot in your mouth.


What were your other names?

Now you want to bring RACE into this when you have no ideal who I am or who OTHER people like me are.

YOU are just another Greggg. Throw crap out then run from it . Do you even have the Ba to try to explain yourself.

Anyone that were to read your all your posts should see . you dont have facts you just rant.

Well thats what I'm doing now a rant.

So I will end with this.

You , NOT PEOPLE LIKE YOU, Just you make me sick. ( all work up over a black man in the white house like you people do)

Rod, he is just another partisan sheeple, politicians love people like him. Using the old worn out argument "they all do it" just means their party got caught doing something wrong and they just can't defend and or spin it any longer without losing all credibility.

When I am out and about. There seems to be more reg. folks talking about things that are going on AND expressing disappointment with how things are.
A lot of Obama supporters that now regret voting for him. But you don't see that on the boards. I don't know if the ones on the internet are more diehard supporters or if my neighbors are just willing to express their disappointment.

As for jiggin, what he says counts for very little on a good day. But when he jumps out on the race thing. He needs to back it up. Too bad but hes not able to do that. He doesnt know me or my kind and it seems just likes to make up stuff

He did get one thing right. I do need to go fishing more. Hopefully I will soon.
Had a new knee installed on may 13th and am just starting to get around a little, Now I go back for the other one 24th of June. So I think it will be about mid Aug. before I get out fishing.
I wanted to get it done before any more changes are made in the health law. Since I have my own health ins. and have heard rumblings of rate increases coming . I wanted to have it done while I can still afford it.

Thats pretty good BUT IT has nothing to do with your post that said Me and people like me would not like having a black in the white house.

AGAIN, ARE YOU A MIND READER? Is that how you can know what me and people like me think without ever having met me or us.

SMOKE AND MIRRORS. I dont care about you or your kin. I WANT TO KNOW WHY YOU THINK YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO LIE ABOUT ME. YOU DONT KNOW ME , YOU DONT HAVE A CLUE WHAT I AM LIKE.

YOU JUST SPOUT OFF ABOUT THINGS YOU DO NOT KNOW ABOUT AND TELL LIES.

Although it does a lot for your side.
I can see all the other liberals jumping on here to back you up and you do a better job of showing who and what you are than I ever could.

So keep it up

Now I took exception to this. Because jiggins doesn't know me or for that matter MY kind.. So we are stuck in a rut. Hes not man enough to admit he said something that is untrue, that he cannot prove. and I have nothing else to do but try to bring him back to the subject He started.

So it looks like we are going to repeat this for as long as he keeps coming back for more.

A man would have stood right up and said he was wrong and that in the heat .of the moment he miss spoke but that does not seem to be what He and His kind do. and I think I can say that because He put it in print and it is plain that he has not tried to correct it.

So stay tuned, more to come :shock:

Intimidate, where does that come from, this is the internet are you really that stupid jiggin? Rod, look at this reply its all you need to know about this person, has a child mentality. He brought up the race stuff and when you question him as to why this is the type reply you get, has no answer so it becomes you are trying to intimidate him. People who can't think for themselves and ignore events happening before their eyes because it may not fit in to their pre determined beliefs and excuse them by saying they all do it is a defeated American, another sheeple.

At this point, I'm not sure if I care about him maning up on his remark.

Just think , at this time he is the only liberal saying anything on this board and there are a lot on people stoping bye to read what is going on, so unless all the readers are Rs. I would have to say he is the voice of the liberal left at this time
