Obama regime ramps ups from IRS audits to death threats Update- the threats worked

Talk about your war on whistleblowers….

The Obama regime has been conducting an IRS pogrom against conservatives for several years now. Private records have been released, conservative groups and individuals have been audited continuously and the Obama regime has issued new rules codifying the persecution of conservatives.

Now the Obama regime is taking it to a new level- the threat of death.

Lois Lerner fears for her life if she testifies openly before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, according to her attorney.

House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa announced Sunday that Lerner will testify at Wednesday’s hearing, but Lerner’s attorney Bill Taylor said that Lerner will seek to continue invoking her Fifth Amendment rights and will also seek a one-week delay of her testimony.

Oversight members are reportedly open to granting Lerner a one-week delay if she petitions for one in person at Wednesday’s hearing. The delay would allow Lerner’s lawyers to continue negotiating for immunity, which they have been doing since at least September.

“I advised the staff that calling Ms. Lerner knowing that she will assert her rights was not only improper but dangerous. Ms. Lerner has been the subject of numerous threats on her life and safety, and on the life and safety of her family. I left with the staff recent evidence of those threats,” said Taylor in a letter to Issa.

But Oversight previously determined that Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights when she made a statement attesting to her innocence at a May 2013 hearing.

Republican Reps. Jim Jordan and Jason Chaffetz, both Oversight members, said recently that they were considering holding Lerner in contempt of Congress if she does not testify.

Issa said on the subject, ”We want her to come back and answer questions. We’ll see on contempt.”

Congressman Trey Gowdy said they have the goods on Lerner:

Now it gets interesting. Why would Lerner be in fear for her life were she to testify?

There’s only one side that stands to lose.

UPDATE

Lerner has become “The Obsolete Man”

H/T WZ

Update II

Lerner again takes the Fifth

She won’t testify, and the IRS continues to refuse to furnish the emails requested by Issa’s committee.

Now there is no question of criminality.

    I see nothing in the articles cited that indicate where exactly the “threats” come from.

    Is she claiming the “threats” come from the administration, or from the Tea Party/conservative groups that she targeted?

    @Kraken: Well, I don’t think she really has to worry about threats from anyone in the TEA Party, but I have heard of people in opposition to the sitting party suddenly coming up dead tho’…

    She may not have to worry about the Tea Party, but it wouldn’t be the first time that a hate crime was hoaxed:

    Manufacturing Tea Party threats would both give her additional sympathy and justify her targeting amongst Collective Drones, not to mention further demonize their political adversaries. So there would be motivation in attributing threats to the Tea Party as well.

    And we should feel sorry for her after everything she did to the American people. She should have thought about the bad things she was doing….

    @annie: No Annie, nobody should feel sorry for her at all. She’s a grown woman, knew without question what she was doing was wrong and continued to do it. No sympathy for self-inflicted wounds, none. Period. She should go to prison for the rest of her life, forfeit all pension and benefits she may have accrued, AND give up all she knows about the goings-on inside the Executive Branch.

    Ms. Lerner has been the subject of numerous threats on her life and safety, and on the life and safety of her family.

    Interesting.
    These threats (past tense) seem to be from people upset by her NOT testifying.
    The very persons who wanted her to testify, in other words.
    So, THEY wouldn’t stand in the way of her NOW testifying.
    BUT……throwing people under the bus is the Obama team’s specialty.
    How cynical of them to try to protect their beloved one’s bum by waving old threats in Congress’ collective face.
    Lois will testify even if they have to disguise her to get her to and from the meeting.
    Afterward, if she is utterly honest, she will have mollified all those who might have wished her harm for holding back AND she will have de-fanged all those she had been protecting.
    She’ll be safe.
    But only if she lets all the chips fall where they may.

    What continues to amaze is the utter lack of interest in this story by the MSM.

    I am old enough to remember that during Watergate…the late Daniel Shorr at CBS who made Nixon’s enemies list…blaze on and on about the dangers of a politicized IRS. In that case Nixon only sought the IRS’s cooperation in auditing his enemies, that was enough to make it a charge on his bill of impeachment. Obama actually accomplished it!

    Today…crickets at the MSM.

    She should fear.
    All that ammunition purchased by the regime: does one of those rounds have her name on it?
    Fear Homeland Security!
    After all, the safety of the regime depends on secrecy. We, the dumb slobs, should not be permitted knowledge of how we have been lied to. That would be bad. Alas for Lois. She is in trouble, whether she testifies or not. If she does not testify, she is still in trouble, because she knows what she knows. Vince Foster never did testify, and look what happened to him. You better go behind closed doors, accept immunity, get a new name, and go hide somewhere.
    Get a sleaze ball lawyer, get a sleazy defense.

    @VoteOutIncumbents: Because none of them are conservative groups so they don’t give a rats backside. Of course she is just one of the tentacles and until the head is cut off, the tentacles will continue doing what they are told.

    Sure, that’s what they say now.
    But why?
    Only because Ms. Lerner has been the subject of numerous threats on her life and safety, and on the life and safety of her family.
    So, they are trying to use her past threats (by people upset that she refused to testify) as a rationale for why she should not testify.
    I note, she took the 5th rather than beg for a closed session.
    If she had asked for that closed session I might have some respect for her.
    I hope they hold her in contempt.
    To me she is contemptible.
    The evidence they confronted her with was damning.

    @enchanted:

    Agreed. What I think this lack of MSM coverage shows is their utter corruption.

    Either ABCBSNBC have been bought off…or they are too afraid of the Obama White House and “Justice” department. I can see both possibilities.

    I think the taps on James Rosen’s emails and phone calls (including a tap on his parents’ phone) was a clear warning to the media. This administration are fascist.

    The IRS thing goes all the way to the top and if the truth ever comes out B. Hussien Obama will be arrested, tried, imprisoned and impeached. If he didn’t order this IRS thing he certainly had knowledge of it and approved it.

    THEY SHOULD GIVE HER A CHOICE SHE WILL GO IN PRISON , WHERE IT’S SAFE FOR HER, as safe as she was in the IRS
    DOING THE JOB OF IMPOSING HER AUTHORITY

    IT WILL TAKE AWAY HER FEAR, BY HAVING HER OWN CELL LOCK FROM ALL WHO SHE IS AFRAID, OF, WANT TO KILL HER,
    SHE NOW FEEL WHAT SHE MADE THOSE PEOPLE FEEL
    BEING QUESTIONNED LIKE GESTAPO STYLE, BEING ASK TO REVEAL THEIR SOURCES, AND ALL DETAILS, WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW OF THE LAND TO DO, FOR THE IRS NOT MADE TO
    SCARE THE PEOPLE, ABUSE THE PEOPLE AND THREATEN THEM OF DISPOSESSING THEM, TREATING THEM AS IF THEY ARE CRIMINALS, LET HER TASTE IT GOOD, SO SHE WILL NEVER FORGET THE GREAT WRONG WHICH SHE GOES FURTHER ON OTHER PEOPLE STUCK IN FINANCE PROBLEM, BEING DISPOSESS OF THEIR BELONGING AND BUSINESS, I READ OF ONE LOZING HIS RANCH BECAUSE OF THE IRS HARRASSENT, TOLD BY HIS SON, AFTER HE DIED,
    ANOTHER LOSING HIS SMALL BUSINESS OF SELLING NEWSPAPER IN THE CORNER STREET, BEING PUSH TO PAY WHAT HE DID NOT HAVE, AND HAVING HIS HOUSE STRIP BARE OF ALL HIS BELONGING,

    he is the one THEY COVER, so its his responsibility , he should pay the price,
    WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OTHER IMPEACHMENTS FOR HIM,

    DID HE SCARE THE HIGHEST COURT OF THE LAND?
    THIS ADMINISTRATION RUN WITH PUNISHING ANYBODY WHO DON’T SEE EYE TO EYE WITH HIM,
    HOW CAN HE ACCUSE PUTIN OF THE SAME,

    Bill

    I wonder what would have happened if, during the 9/11 hearings, any administration employee had declared the 5th, if there would have been any notice taken? What if Libby, Cheney or any other Republican had taken the 5th during the Plame hearings and trial, would we have heard about it?

    And, what is Cummings’ problem with shutting down the hearing if Lerner won’t testify? Without her testimony, what’s the point besides to give his dumb ass more of an opportunity to bitch about “false scandal” and being so mean and unfair to poor, innocent, sweet Mr. Obama?

    So, now, when WILL they subpoena Lerner and make her testify, under oath?

    Hopefully Issa will go for the contempt citation.

    If you remember…Watergate was broken when Judge “Maximum John” Sirica sent burglar James McCord to jail and told him he would stay there until he told the truth. McCord talked…and one by one, the entire Nixon administration fell.

    Of course Issa must understand that almost the entire media will castigate him as being sexist and misogynist for putting Learner in jail. Once again, the biggest problem we will have in finding the truth is the media blocking and tackling for Obama.

    Common Sense

    Issa has now built a contempt case!! It’s now time to legally get the truth!! Lerner has nothing to fear from the Republicans so who’s she worried about relevant to a death threat?? Yep, remember the Clinton era for the answer!!

    Soon they will force her testimony under immunity. As soon as she is immune from prosecution she will take sole responsibility for everything. The whole scandal will fall on her immune shoulders and we can all go for tea and cakes. End of scandal.

    (Sarc on) Well, why isn’t her lawyer giving all this evidence of death threats “if she testifies” to the FBI and Attorney General Holder who can go after those responsible…

    …Oh, (Thinks: [prisoners + keys = end to overcrowding])…

    she said about those employees asking her if she really want to die,
    or disappear never to be seen< they told her that"s what the UNIONS DO,
    and they protect OBAMA,
    MAYBE IT'S THE UNIONS WHO THREATEN LOIS LERNER, OBAMA HAS HIS STRENGTH FROM THEM,
    that"s why the WHITE HOUSE is so off limit and well protected by those UNION'S EMPLOYEES,remember that black mother unarmed who wanted to talk to OBAMA, SHE WAS CONFUSE AND NOT DANGEROUS,
    THEY SHOOT HER IN HER CAR, in front of her 3 year old,
    as she try to get away from them blocking her exit,
    and terrifyed,
    could she have known of a secret no one wanted to tell? why those many guys suppose security,
