Issa may have her cold and has told Lerner's lawyers it would benefit her if she specifically named others who were involved, especially if the orders to target conservative groups came from those others.

How many top IRS officials--current and former--are now scrambling to line up attorneys?

Good question...and I am certain her attorney(s) negotiated one or the other or even both in order for her to even appear.  What she will not be able to do is go in there and plead the fifth if she is expecting to get some sort of immunity.

In any case, this one is gonna be good.  I'll plan on blogging that one live here, and no doubt C-Span will be streaming it live.

Let's say Lerner  testifies and incriminates the President of the United States. If I were Lerner I would do this; to escape jail time but I would want to go into a witness protection program. This is a tainted offer with Obama and Holder in charge. AND OR If she were to incriminate Obama and or cabinet officials; is she safe from retribution simply because she is in the public eye? This woman plead the fifth for a reason.

She plead the fifth because she was in the chain who approved of targeting these T-Party groups.  Obama and Holder would never have their fingerprints on something like this. 

But they don't need to have approved it personally.  All that has to be shown is that someone in the White House (White House Counsel?)  approved, and everyone will make the connection.

I think Lerner is up a creek if she would consider a witness protection program. I wouldn't trust of the politicos to hide me. There is no hiding from the government, because there are too many backstabbers and just downright evil people. Besides, she is too public for O to take a chance on getting rid of her, unless she commits suicide with a couple bullets to the back of the head.

Lois Lerner has much more to worry about from the IRS/FCC/CIA/FBI/ATF/HLS than she does from any "right wing nutjob". How many rounds of ammo do they have now? I lost count at about 2 billion rounds, including sniper fire. (along with tanks and heavy artillery) If I was her, I would be scared out of my mind right now.

Gee, I wonder what they are thinking? (because I'm just stupid that way.)

She must have seen Trey Gowdy on FOX.

She's had time to get her 'story' straight.

She won't give up a thing.

What she should face is a firing squad.

There is no story to change when an Obama cabinet member has already been implicated in the literal development of how the tea party/conservatives was/is reviewed.

If there is a firing squad, it will be her own people doing the shooting.

We are not stupid. We all know the truth.
 
But the truth she can never say. Because it would bring down a King.
