Some of you may be as tired as I am listening to Democrats claim that the IRS Scandal is not really a scandal. They claim that the investigations have been closed and that no evidence of malfeasance has been found.
Nothing has been concluded. Nothing has been “investigated.” In fact, the most important investigation, the one being run by Congress, can’t even get the government to give them the information they’ve asked for.
We can’t even get the central figure in the entire corrupt escapade to tell us what happened in her own words! For a second time Lois Lerner, the IRS official at the center of the scandal has refused to cooperate with the investigation. She is once again claiming her 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination.
Let me ask the very obvious question that has to jump out at any one paying any attention at all. If there is nothing to this scandal, why wouldn’t Ms. Lerner, the person who would have the most knowledge of the inner workings of the agency refuse to testify? She could clear up the entire matter very easily… but she won’t risk it. Because it is a risk – something terribly underhanded happened at the IRS and she knows it. She also knows that if she lies about it and her lies are later discovered… she will go to prison. These are chances she is not willing to take – and so she takes the Fifth.
Make no mistake friends, the IRS Scandal is a scandal in the truest sense of the word. It is also one of the most egregious attacks on our liberty over the last 150 years and the Democrats are keen to have the entire mess buried.
