weaselzippers;Dem Rep. Jackie Spear Throws Lois Lerner Under The Bus: She's Just A "Mid-Level Bureaucrat" - "No Conection To The White House"
Via CNS News:
Today is not about Lois Lerner or the alleged inappropriate tactics she may have employed,” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday. “Today is about protecting the integrity and the credibility of this committee.”Speier accused Republicans of fabricating a “vast conspiracy” around a “mid-level bureaucrat who may have made some poor decisions.”“There is no connection to the White House,” she said. “What we are trying to do is hold in contempt a mid-level bureaucrat, and the actions of this committee won’t stand up to judicial scrutiny.”Speier said if the Republicans’ conspiracy notions had been real, they would have offered Lerner immunity right away: “Because the only way to build a conspiracy case is to grant immunity to the smaller players to get the larger ones.”Regardless of whether Lerner is found in contempt of Congress, “her name has been dragged through the mud and her bank account has been drained to pay her lawyers fees,” Speier said.
Thank You CNS and Zip.

And without that Power To Tax, Psychiatry's Unlawful, Political Illnesses virtually Cease To Exist.
