THEY CALLED HER ANYWAY. SHE GAVE A STATMENT AND THEN INVOKED THE FIFTH.
SOME CONGRESSMEN THINK SHE WAIVED HER FIFTH AMENDMENT RIGHTS, BUT I THINK NOT.
ISSA NOW SAYS HE WILL RECALL HER.
I THINK WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING IS GOING ON BEHIND THE SCENES:
HER LAWYER IS NEGOTIATING TO GET AN IMMUNITY DEAL FROM CONGRESS:
IN RETURN FOR A FULL AND HONEST ACCOUNT OF WHAT REALLY HAPPENED SHE WILL GET IMMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION ON EVERYTHING SHE TESTIFIES TO.
THE HOUSE COMMITTEE HAS TO WEIGH WHETHER THEY THINK SHE WILL IMPLICATE HIGHER UPS AND IF THEY NEED HER TESTIMONY TO GET THEM, OR NOT.
I WAS RIGHT AGAIN:
... Stan Brand, who was the general counsel for the House of Representatives from 1976 to 1983 and works on ethics issues.
... “Bottom line,” Brand said, “I think we will hear no more from Ms. Lerner” unless she is provided immunity.
