Obviously, she didn't testify so could not lie.
But she may be forced to testify yet.
What will you say about the five IRS workers in the Cincinnati branch office being called to testify although Darrell Issa won't say why they're being called just that none of them are being accused of any crime?

Top IRS official takes the Fifth: what it means
May 22, 2013
Now it’s getting interesting.
Lois Lerner, head of the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt filings, will take the Fifth in front of Congress tomorrow.
She won’t answer questions. She won’t say, for example, why she never informed Congress that she knew there was criminal fiddling going on at the IRS, where employees “gave extra scrutiny” to tea party, conservative, patriot, and other groups during the application process.
Instead, as the DOJ launches a criminal investigation, Lerner will tell the House Oversight Committee,“I decline to answer. I invoke my Fifth Amendment right.” Multiple times she will say this.
Meaning:“If I answer, I could incriminate myself.”
Her lawyer, William Taylor, has asked the Committee to excuse Lerner from testifying tomorrow, Wednesday, since she won’t be answering questions. Taylor wrote to the House Committee,“[Forcing her to testify would] have no other purpose other than to embarrass or burden her.”
Tsk, tsk. Mustn’t embarrass a person who has committed crimes. Be nice. Be kind. Yes, Lois Lerner failed to tell the Committee anything about IRS crimes, when she testified four times last year, but so what? Give her a break. Goodness gracious, don’t put her through an ordeal.
Somehow, Lerner’s lawyer’s logic doesn’t stand up. But he’s a lawyer, so that’s no surprise.
Then there was this: a presidential election last year. 2012? Obama? Remember?
If Lois Lerner had blown the whistle then, and the full-blown scandal that’s erupting now had occurred before the election, who knows who would have won the presidency.
Lois was obviously protecting a 'president' running to win a second term. She’s “pre-taking” the Fifth now and hoping she won’t have to appear before the Committee tomorrow, so the Soetoro/Obama regime won’t have to risk hearing a Congressman ask, WERE YOU PROTECTING THE 'PRESIDENT' FROM SCANDAL IN AN ELECTION YEAR?
WERE YOU LYING SO OBAMA COULD WIN REELECTION?
Ahem…the Fifth Amendment wasn’t designed for that purpose. It was designed so a person wouldn’t have to incriminate himself/herself. The Fifth doesn’t exist to protect someone else from scandal.
We get it, Lois. We get what you’re up to...
https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2013/05/22...
So because she's an Obama appointee or, maybe pro Obama, she has no 5th amendment rights. When she chooses to use them somehow she's protecting Obama under his orders! You people are no more than conspiracy theorist, making up the outcome of the story before destiny reveals it. There is a criminal investigation in process meaning, if she answers the questions of the committee, she is in essence incriminating herself before the criminal proceedings take place. You people are fucking stupid!

So, let's put the bloodhounds there to start and see where the trail leads. I'd say try her for the obvious violation of the laws and send her to Leavenworth for 40 years. Let's see who she rolls over on to get that sentence reduced.

Exactly. Just like when the Brentwood Slasher demonstrated to the jury that the gloves were a very snug fit gave up his 5th Amendment rights when he did that.

Two Virginia women are being charged with inducing an abortion using herbs they purchased at a local supplement store, according to Norfolk-based WTKR-TV.
The women are Jessica Carpenter, 20, and Rachel Lowe, 27. Court documents allege that Lowe, a former employee of the Tidewater Women’s Clinic in Norfolk, helped Carpenter induce a miscarriage at six months into her pregnancy using a combination of herbs.
Lea Smith, one of their mutual friends, told WTKR-TV that she heard them discussing an induced miscarriage. She contacted police when the infant died after being born prematurely.
Virginia law considers self-inducing an abortion a Class 4 felony, carrying a jail sentence of no less than two years and no more than 10, along with a fine of up to $100,000.

Sounds like the traditional "back-alley" abortion, which you apparently support.

Do you so-called feminists ever ask why Obama picked on Lois Lerner to take the blame instead of a really slimy worm like Steven Miller?
Probably because Miller was smart enough to refuse to be the pigeon.
No one is blaming Lois Lerner or Steven Miller of anything except maybe not ccing the White House enough .

The purpose of Congressional hearings is fact-finding, after which the facts are passed on to the Department of Justice for any possible criminal prosecution.

Now that IS a joke.

This worked so will for the citizens of Venezuela.
I once posted Chavez's quotes on his rise to power before he got there and became a fascist/communist leader.

If Chavez's name hadn't been attached to those quotes, they could have easily been misinterpreted as Obama's nearly word for word.

Let's see... IRS executes a systematic criminal program. Congress wants to question some IRS employees.
Perhaps they have some information related to the crimes committed, you goddam idiot.

A Democrat on the House’s investigative committee raised the specter of a special prosecutor on Wednesday to investigate political targeting of conservative groups at the IRS from 2010 to 2012.
Rep. Stephen Lynch, Massachusetts Democrat, warned IRS and Treasury Department witnesses before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform not to stonewall congressional efforts to get to the bottom of the scandal.
“We know where that will lead, it will lead to a special prosecutor.… There will be hell to pay if that’s the route that we choose to go down,” he said.
The Democrat’s reference to a special prosecutor was noteworthy, since the most vocal criticism for the IRS has come from GOP ranks in recent weeks.
The administration is sitting it up so there is no other avenues.

The POTUS came out insisting the IRS engaged in wrong and outrageous behavior he would not tolerate. Then their whole solution was to fire the man who was leaving in June anyway and wasn't there when the events occurred. Those who were directly involved have not been identified and disciplined.

The only solution to the stonewalling is get a special prosecutor.

You can not 'punish' someone for a non-crime unless Lois Lerner and Steven Miller are really Winston Smith in 1984:“What can you do, thought Winston, against the lunatic who is more intelligent than yourself, who gives your arguments a fair hearing and then simply persists in his lunacy?”

This isn't a court of law, Homer. It's a Congressional hearing designed to get answers that directly affect the American people, their rights and a growing mistrust of this government.

Imagine if Dean or Haldeman had pleaded the 5th during the Watergate hearings.

Wise up. You're starting to look more and more like another useful idiot.

I've already explained opening statementsbut, for you I'll go a little further. She doesn't have to have a lawyer 1st of all, tho the judge will appoint her a lawyer for guidance & opinion. So if she gave a statement with a lawyer present, he could be there for those purposes only.

2nd, you can't lose you 5th amendment rights without taking the stand & by law she doesn't have to take the stands for fear of self incrimination. Sharpen up on your law degree. You must've received it in the 1940s!
