#IRS: Lois Lerner negotiating for immunity?

satire lets make a deal

Oh, this is interesting:

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.

“The Chairman did not adjourn the hearing, he recessed it. Ms. Lerner remains under subpoena. The Committee has not made any offer of immunity to Ms. Lerner. The Committee has, however, indicated a willingness to listen to any offers from her attorney about what she would testify to if it was offered,” Oversight Committee adviser Ali Ahmad told The Daily Caller.

“I don’t have any update for you on timing,” Ahmad said in regard to when Lerner will be called back before the committee.

Immunity is discussed only when the following conditions apply: a) you think you’re in deep trouble and b) you think you have something the other side wants. Apparently the newly-retired on the taxpayers’ dime Lois Lerner is feeling the heat.

I wonder what it is she has to offer? Or is it “who?”

John Dean, call your office.

    Immunity? Put her to the rack! Her and some others.

    This could get interesting. As cockroaches scurry when the lights come on, these WH minions who were caught up in this and other scandals may well make this a race to the courthouse as each turns on the other. Survival of the fastest.

    Any bets on Issa taking an immunity deal for Lerner? He already has her stone cold, dead-to-rights guilty (if for nothing else, and there’s LOTS more) of perjury and obstruction, but since Issa’s objectives have nothing to do with getting at the truth, I’m willing to bet he gives this sleaze-bag female dog a big, long pass.

    If Lois Lerner can get a person like Valerie Jarrett indicted, I would give her immunity and a bonus.
