B*llshyt....I suggest you check laws
Lerner’s lawyer, William W. Taylor, adamantly disagreed.“The law is clear that a witness does not waive her Fifth Amendment rights not to testify as to facts by asserting that she is innocent of the wrongdoing with which she is accused,” he wrote in an e-mail.
In an interview, Taylor said Lerner’s comments—which gave a thumbnail sketch of her division’s operation and the two investigations it has spurred in the offices of the Treasury inspector general and FBI — didn’t delve into the facts.“It simply said,‘This is what you guys accused me of, I’m not guilty of it.’”
http://news.yahoo.com/irs-official-fifth-amen...
ames Duane, a Fifth Amendment expert at Regent University, explained to New York magazine why Lerner was within her rights.(Duane made his comments after the hearing ended and before Issa made his announcement.)
“When [someone is] involuntarily summoned before grand jury or before legislative body, it is well settled that they have a right to make a ‘selective invocation,’ as it’s called, with respect to questions that they think might raise a meaningful risk of incriminating themselves,” Duane said.
He also believes that “even if Ms. Lerner had given answers to a few questions — five, ten, twenty questions — before she decided,‘That’s where I draw the line, I’m not answering any more questions,’ she would be able to do that as well.”
That theory will now get tested, since Issa indicated he may call Lerner back to testify again, without the ability to cite the Fifth Amendment.
Stan Brand, a former general counsel for the House of Representatives, told Politico that Lerner could have an issue if she waived her rights in prior appearances before Congress.
Prior to Lerner’s appearance, her attorney, William W. Taylor III, wrote to Issa and explained why his client was taking the Fifth Amendment.
Taylor said that prior claims by Issa that Lerner had provided misleading information to Congress on four occasions left his client without another option.
“She has not committed any crime or made any misrepresentation but under the circumstances she has no choice but to take this course,” Taylor said.
but not to worry, as I sure this will come up against a judge
"karma"
Face the facts. Lerner is taking the 5th. for one reason. She is guilty and she knows she is guilty. Do you know what the first step should be, fire her azz and quit paying her to sit on her azz and lie.

<quoted text>Emergency rooms should be limited to emergency care.

And why should you expect someone else to pay your bill?
Because he is a Liberal, and ALL Liberals are parasites of the government.

He cashes his other-people-tax-payers check and comes here to worship Obama and big government.

For low life parasite Liberals like him the solution is the government. He works never work hard abs save money in a Conservative created Health-Savings account to pay for his own stupidity.

Conservatives are responsible enough to save money for their own retirement, vacation, education and health care.

Liberals live off government handouts.

I remembers when Liberals falsely accused Bush of using drones to kill terrorists. That was a made up scandal! Liberals were screaming impeachment.
Now, strangely, Liberals applaud Obama for what they wanted to impeach Bush for.
See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites.
You're not paying attention to what DBWriter wrote. At least, Obama provided an answer. Bush43 fought every subpoena by Congress to give an answer all the way to the Supreme Court.

Who cuts taxes for BILLIONAIRES during a TRILLION dollar war in Iraq?

handed each BILLIONAIRE $50 million dollars.

But schools in RED STATE OK can't afford shelters for little school children?

This is insanity in practice.

hand out millions to filthy rich guys, and deny shelter for school kids.

Bush gave them tax cuts, free gov loot.

While the country was at war! a trillion dollar Iraq fffffccckkkk up!

You need to stop throwing your dung and seeing if it sticks.

These were grants anyone could apply for and such comments like fair share is idiotic.

I love the way you brand scientific information as leftist ideals, yet if the same science group said we found a weapon that can destroy a whole country then you be singing its praises.
When they told you about AIDS in the 80's did you believe that ? or was that OK because it was God's punishment for those with loose morals. It's a very TINY box you ringers live in.
As I said earlier...More vague charges....

What is your "scientific information"???? Recall the email exchanges from the University of East Anglia scandal. Climatologists were routinely exchanging potential methods used to fudge scientific data that didn't conform to their political correctness. They openly discussed ways how to get around the prying eyes of their superiors and bury that fudged data.

Recall also the UN committee on Climate Change and how so much of their data has been debunked and laughed at.

And along comes you.....Hee, Hee.......lecturing me about my giddy wish for weapons of mass destruction and my religious beliefs about AIDS?????

Geez! Talk about fudging data!!!! You are one of them.

Are we now approaching that new, oft-predicted stage of Republicanism, the part where modern Republicans call Ronald Reagan a dirty stupid hippie and start calling each other "Reaganesque" as an insult? "Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said Thursday that President Obama would not be president if it weren't for the 1986 amnesty bill that Ronald Reagan signed into law.[…]

In an effort to dissuade Republicans, King argued that the 1986 immigration bill that Reagan signed into law is estimated to have brought amnesty to three million illegal immigrants.

He said conservative estimates show that, on average, each of these people brought in five others, leading to 15 million more people in the country, most of whom voted for Obama." King blames Reagan for Obama presidency - The Hill's Floor Action
