Lerner tries to have it both ways, Issa wusses out until Goudy calls him on it and stiffens his backbone.

IRS official refuses to answer questions at scandal hearing
Rep. Gowdy: Lerner "Waived Her Fifth Amendment Right" By Giving Statement
Darrell Issa: Lois Lerner lost her rights

I expect to see more of this. Principled Americans--like Goudy--leading from the middle. That is, they are not in leadership positions, but being free men, they will lead where there is no leadership; much to the chagrin of the 'leadership'

Goudy in the house, The proud Wacko-Birds in the Senate--Cruz and Paul.

btw, still praying for you often, Mr. V.

Dan Amira points out key differences that suggest she did not, sadly, waive her 5th amendment right. It is not a trial where she can take the stand or not. She is required to appear. Congress is gathering information, not ruling on guilt or innocence.

Give her limited immunity and make her testify, perhaps it will lead to bigger fish. Then fire her and go after the others.

This really pisses me off. If I did this my ass would be in jail right now with a contempt charge and I would be staying until I answered the "fooking" questions. Fucking spineless bastards aren't willing to do a damn thing to people who wipe their ass with the Constitution and think they are above the law.

Gowdy needs to make sure Issa doesn't pussy out. Every time he goes wobbly, Gowdy needs to ram a steel rod up Issa's ass.
