The lawyer for IRS official Lois Lerner is pushing to get her full immunity in exchange for her full testimony to Congress.
The article makes two very good points: One, it will be difficult to prosecute anyone at the IRS for its harassment of conservatives, and two, Lerner’s full testimony is likely not going to have any earthshaking bombshells. She will state that the White House had nothing to do with the harassment (whether that is true or not), and that the harassment was merely the result of some bad management decisions.
And thus, the government’s power over us will rise, and freedom will experience another cut in its continuing death of a thousand cuts.
