IRS scandal figure Lois Lerner is negotiating through her lawyers with Rep. Darrell Issa’s Oversight and Government Reform Committee about possibly gaining immunity to testify again in the committee’s investigative hearings.
“The Chairman did not adjourn the hearing, he recessed it. Ms. Lerner
remains under subpoena. The Committee has not made any offer of
immunity to Ms. Lerner. The Committee has, however, indicated a

“I don’t have any update for you on timing,” Ahmad said in regard to when Lerner will be called back before the committee.
