He said he had new evidence.

These silly tea-baggers live fantasy land... It was so pathetic how they turned an official government hearing into a shame as it mirrored a third world country. I am getting a little Fed up with their shenanigans. Lerner is a hero as she stands u to these unpatriotic bastards

Democrat Marxists have stonewalled every investigation of their wrongdoing. Lerner had already violated her right under the Fifth Amendment in her previous attendance and should be held in contempt of Congress.

Activated Communist cells have always behaved exactly as Lerner and her cohorts have behaved. They need no direction from Obama, nor Holder, et.al. Communist cells don't know who oversees them, but they do what the Communist manifesto of the time requires.

All of these Marxist Democrats need to be brought up on conspiracy charges, along with their extremely small SS type queer supporters.

Sorry, didn't mean SS... meant Gestapo. Queers behave exactly like the National Socialist Gestapo. They're the special "army" Obama promised before his first election.

Obama charged with blocking IRS probe, breaking promises to help

A House chairman probing the IRS scandal on Wednesday said that President Obama has reneged on a promise to have his aides cooperate with the investigation, forcing the Ways and Means Committee to conduct a dragnet for emails and documents needed to smoke out the truth.

Rep. Dave Camp also revealed that federal agents conducting an investigation into the Internal Revenue Service's bid to punish Tea Party and conservative critics of the president have yet to talk to a single target of the scandal.

Of course, after pleading the fifth a multitude of times and saying nary a word, she would speak fifty million words on getting rid of the 2nd. Men and women in politics who are not good people, will screw over everyone else with venom if caught and they can get away with it.

As if you know what a hero is while falsely acting as if you are a vet. Heroes dont need to plead the 5th. Get a clue. Your bias is showing.

Did anyone else notice Lerner looked like she had a fifth before she took the Fifth?

Once compelled by court, and with an immunity grant in her pocket, she'll sing like a canary.

Oh, btw. From the Washington Post, 3/4/14.

"Lerner’s attorney, William Taylor, told The Post on Monday that he and his client had reached “no such agreement” with the committee, but an e-mail exchange provided by Issa’s office shows that the two sides had been close to a deal the day before the Fox News interview.
A member of Issa’s staff wrote to Taylor on March 1:“I understand from Jon that Ms. Lerner willing to testify, and she is requesting a one week delay. In talking to the Chairman, wanted to make sure we had this right.”

Taylor responded:“Yes.”

On Tuesday, Taylor issued the following statement:“I do not intend to get into a debate about what was discussed in negotiations that were always, in my view, confidential."

Okay, Lois, when are you going to figure out emails will come back to haunt you?

Why just revoke her constitutional rights? Why not just burn her in the Town Square? Don't go half way to barbarism, tote the full distance.

Without viewing the emails, this is just hearsay. Often these politicians and their staffers will say anything if they don't have to produce actual evidence of the communication
