Lerner, Paz say they fear physical harm from enraged public, want IRS testimony sealed permanently

Former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that members of her family, including “young children,” face death threats and a real risk of physical harm if her explanation of the tea party targeting scandal becomes public.

    Boo hoo.

      Sessions refused to investigate her and many other Obama leftovershttp://thehill.com/homenews/house/349846-gop-lawmakers-furious-after-doj-declines-to-prosecute-lois-lerner

      • Blacksmith

        Sessions is another oxygen waster.

  • Too frigging bad!

    Do your job without bias and there would be no problem.

    When the left deplatforms a speaker or disrupts a lecture or meeting, they’re fond of saying “free speech is a right but it’s not free of consequence”. As much as I condemn death threats, if you’re really getting them, using your position to abuse the process and deny other people their rights under the law on ideological grounds is not free of consequences either, Ms Lerner.

      She was the leader of the IRS that helped weaponize the department against conservatives. Payback’s a bitch Toots.

    The notorious Eichmann defence.

    “I was simply following orders….”

    a shame Lerner is not hanging from a lamp post

  • BillyHW

    That sure sounds like there wasn’t even a smidgen of corruption going on there.

    I suspect ever child molester wants their testimony and evidence secret also.

    Protective custody in Prison works for me.

      30 years of solitary confinement. I like the way you think.

  • Tooth&Claw

    You ruined people’s lives and livelyhoods and now you want to hide. Eff you sideways with your legal machinations.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Publicly execute them. Problem solved.

    The Government did not jail her, she continues to receive health benefits and a pension the Average American can only dream of. The only justice she will ever see is that of the abused public. May she never have a days peace just like the taxed-enough-already activists she targeted. She is another Leona Helmsley with her entitled elitist attitude ,let her wear it.

  • barryjr

    Ignorant cunt should be in jail. As to her family that has benefited from her illegal anti American acts tough shit.

  • Jaedo Drax

    Perhaps a brave senator should read her testimony out… it shouldn’t take too long

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Her testimony:

      “I respectfully decline to answer that question on the grounds of the Fifth Amendment that the answer might incriminate me.”

      • Jaedo Drax

        Well she did botch that at her congressional testimony, but it sounds like there is a lot more in the actual video deposition.

  • Blacksmith

    If this is what she thinks then it definitely needs to be made public, we have a right to know how she has misbehaved.

  • NoBamaYoMama

    F_O_A_D Lois Lerner, you don’t get to be immune from the consequences of your evil actions!
