I would never give Lerner immunity. She engaged in the same behavior at FEC asking Christian groups about who prayed for them.
Prosecutors routinely grant immunity to low-level street dealers to get at the big-time drug kingpins. That concept applies here.

Lerner is a small fish.

Tiller performed third-trimester abortions, all of which are potentially infanticide and should be outlawed, with the exception of preventing the imminent death of the mother.

The only regret is that he was murdered instead of prosecuted for murder.

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.

<quoted text> Making a statement is not the same as taking the stand. In court proceedings both, the defendant or lawyer, & the prosecutor make opening statements. Neither are taking the stand therefore, not subject to the 5th amendment laws at that time. Had she taken the stand & pled her innocence, then when asked questions pertaining the case tried to invoke her 5th amendment right, she couldn't because she already had given them up when she took the stand & testified to her innocence. Therefore she would be forced by law to answer the questions or suffer a jail cell until she does answer them!
In a court of the law the moment a witness responses or makes any statement they have waived their right to claim the fifth.

The lawyer wasn't talking-the witness was.

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.

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.

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.

I hate to see her slide as she has a history of this behavior. Why not going after the smaller fish-those who were directly involved in doing this. No one has been punished.

Did you hear about Harry Sargeant?
A former partner of Florida Republican money man and oil billionaire Harry Sargeant III should get interest on a nearly $29 million court judgment, as well as the principal already awarded against Sargeant, a Florida appeals court ruled Wednesday.
The background of the case reads like a novel. Sargeant, a former state Republican Party finance chairman tapped for the post by then-Gov. Charlie Crist, had a partnership with Mohammed Al-Saleh, a brother-in-law of the king of Jordan, to truck oil through Jordan to U.S. troops in Iraq in an exclusive deal with the military. Al-Saleh was reportedly supposed to assure the Jordanian government would keep the deal exclusive. But Al-Saleh alleged that Sargeant and another partner tried to cut him out of the profits and sued. A Palm Beach County jury agreed in 2011 and ordered Sargeant to pay Al-Saleh $28.8 million, a judgment upheld Wednesdayby the 4th District Court of Appeal in West Palm Beach.

And your point is?
Isn't Florida the same state where just recently someone who murdered her own child was set free?
Court rulings in Florida have about the same credibility as court rulings in, oh, say, New Jersey, where their Supreme Court ruled that the election laws in New Jersey apply only to parties other than the Democratic Party.

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!
