Issa, House GOP investigative committee say Lerner will testify in IRS scandal hearing

March 3, 2014

Former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner, a central figure in the IRS scandal, will appear before Congress on Wednesday after refusing to testify last year on the matter, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., claimed Sunday — though Lerner’s attorney and Issa may still be at odds over the timing.

Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, told “Fox News Sunday” that Lerner’s lawyers have indicated she will testify before his committee, after saying last week that she would not.

“It’s going to be a good, fact-finding hearing,” he said.

Issa said he didn’t know why Lerner’s lawyers changed their mind, but suggested Lerner testifying was “in her best interest,” considering the recent evidence the committee had gathered.

Later in the day, Lerner attorney William W. Taylor disputed Issa’s claim, saying his client would not testify.

    Lerner surely likes to keep her chin in the air, what a smug _itch. Oh, I forgot shes retired now with all the benefits she can handle. I wish I could retire whenever I felt like it and with all the goodies too, hell, I’ll just settle for a job period. She’ll take the fifth again, this is very old sad news.

    Lerner has had a year to “get her story” to fit the pieces of the investigation and explain those tattle tale e-mails that have now popped up. She should BE TOLD she’s heading for jail for obstructing justice the first time around. And this time she better NAME NAMES or her jail time will quadruple. This is an outrage, the lies, the cover-up, and the FACT SHE”S GOTTEN AWAY WITH IT and is now retired living comfy on her full benefits. Arrest warrants should go out immediately following her NEW testimony.

    Put the bit”’h in jail and throw away the key. Or put her and the rest of the liberal socialist democrats on a boat and sink it in the middle of the ocean. Either way her commie tail must go.

      Don’t sink the boat. Let it proceed to North Korea to unload.
