    Lerner’s Lawyers Negotiating With House Oversight Committee On Immunity

    Report: Lois Lerner’s Lawyers Negotiating With House Oversight Committee On Immunity For Her Testimony…
    IRS scandal figure Lois Lerner is negotiating through her lawyers with Rep. Darrell Issa’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about possibly gaining immunity to testify again in the committee’s investigative hearings.

    “The Chairman did not adjourn the hearing, he recessed it. Ms. Lerner remains under subpoena. The Committee has not made any offer of immunity to Ms. Lerner. The Committee has, however, indicated a willingness to listen to any offers from her attorney about what she would testify to if it was offered,” Oversight Committee adviser Ali Ahmad told The Daily Caller.

    “I don’t have any update for you on timing,” Ahmad said in regard to when Lerner will be called back before the Committee.

    Once a bureaucrat reaches a certain level in government they know they can be victims of whatever party is in power to cover their boss, a scandal, or the incompetence (agenda?) of a subordinate.

    1) if it's "their" party in power they get a severance deal (probably 7 figure packages) and immunity to take a fall or testify where they look foolish and/or tainted
    2) if it's the opposing party, well, you may not get much. However, notice how all of these criminals always get their perky government pensions

    In Lerner's case, she appears to be both an instigator and a gleeful apparatchik for the administration - she is "made" and nothing truly bad is going to happen to her. So, she gets immunity, throws a couple of nobodys under the bus, the congressional oversight committee states, "we've made our case for freedom and justice" - life goes on. Ms. Lerner is now a millionaire, she has her $50K plus pension, tells her sympathetic friends how wronged she's been, and gets a book deal. And... just about everyone in government hopes this same thing happens to them.
