"IRS - Did Lois Lerner botch 5th Amendment assertion"

Okay, I admit it. The main reason for this DUmmie FUnnies edition is so I can post the VIDEO of the sublime moment in yesterday's Congressional IRS hearing when Trey Gowdy let the world and Lois Lerner know that she BLEW it by accidentally waiving her Fifth Amendment rights when she delivered a self-serving opening statement proclaiming her innocence. One moment she is relieved to be dismissed by the committee's chairman and the next moment she is having a Depends Moment when she realizes, thanks to Trey Gowdy, that she completely BLEW her invocation of her Fifth Amendment rights. The DUmmies also noticed that too as you can see in this THREAD, "IRS - Did Lois Lerner botch 5th Amendment assertion." So let us now watch the DUmmies observe in Bolshevik Red how Lois Lerner blew her Fifth Amendment shield while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who notes that Lois Lerner after admitting she was bad at math is even worse at basic legal matters, is in the [brackets]: 

  IRS - Did Lois Lerner botch 5th Amendment assertion.

[Measured by the sudden expansion of her Depends...YES.]

Lois Lerner started off her appearance by proclaiming her innocence and then Rep(tilian)Trey Gowdy SC said:


“She just testified. She just waived her Fifth Amendment right to privilege,” Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., a former federal prosecutor, said, “You don’t get to tell your side of the story and then not be subjected to cross-examination. That’s not the way it works. She waived her right to Fifth Amendment privilege by issuing and opening statement. She ought to stand here and answer our questions.”

Members of the public watching in the committee room applauded enthusiastically.

Anyone know how the whole "plead the fifth" thing works and what else you're allowed to say?

[Is that question coming from Lois Lerner's lawyer? ...And now to the DUmmie reactions.]

Too bad - she blew it. You can't defend yourself and then invoke the 5th.

[Unfortunately Lois Lerner's lawyer was sleeping in class the day they taught that.]

No one said she perjured herself. She simply began to tesify, and then invoked the Fifth. Prosecutors would say that is a no-no.

[A no-no which caused poor Lois to do doo-doo.]

Then she should have kept her mouth shut, ya think?

[Keep your mouth shut so your other end doesn't go wide open.]

You can invoke the 5th at any time. Even mid-sentence.

[Sure. Even in mid-burp.]

Can't use it as a sword and a shield. If you decide to shut up, you need to shut up. If you decide to talk, you talk. You don't get to make self-serving statements and then refuse to answer questions about those statements or their subject matter.

Doesn't being a moonbat and a dumbass usually go hand in hand?

Good point, Mike.

BTW - Lerner got put on PAID administrative leave. Why? Because she rejected a demand she resign.

What the hell is up with THAT? FIRE HER SORRY ASS.

Jerome, if she is not a political appointee, it would literally take an Act of Congress to fire her sorry ass. That is possibly THE main reason the Civil Service is full of useless as shit drones, instead of actual Civil Servants. All they have to do is to last through the initial probationary period, and then it is nearly impossible to fire one of them.

Wow...the Moonbats/Troglaman Clones at DU must have really gotten boring lately or PJ and Charles must have found real life again.

Maybe the DUmmies have finally figured out their personal god really does think he's a god and they're not liking it like they thought they would, particularly since they figured only the ultra evil Republicans and Conservatives would be the only ones to suffer. They are still intellectually incapable of accepting they're getting EXACTLY what they voted for.

Even Troglaman, The Sick Perverted Clone of William Rivers Pitt, seems stunned into silence by the actions of his god, The Obamassiah and his minions.

What's stunning is that this has become your little multiple-personality playground, stinkwagon.

How many of these poor, persecuted little tea-party groups were not granted their tax status? None. But you'll keep whining and crying about it. Why? Because you're the biggest cry-baby pussy on the face of the earth. Go heat up some milk, hug an assault rifle and eat a cookie. You'll feel better.

:::watching Troglaman, The Vicious Hate-Mongering Guttersnipe of the DUmmie FUnnies Blog, angrily power-slam his head up his ass:::

I see you still can't come on here and post anything that isn't fueled by hate, can you Guttersnipe?

And you are still a linguini-spined jackass, Guttersnipe, who loves to power-slam his head up his ass rather than face reality...consistent at least even though worthless.

While a throne-sniffer like you, Guttersnipe, likely has nothing to fear from the IRS (unlike most normal Americans), I wonder what the NSA has on you since they are monitoring your every communication for your basement (or cave or whatever rock you slither out from under). Bet they are either scared shitless that anything like you could be so stupid and still manage to survive or they laugh their ass off at your pathetic efforts to replace coherent thought with the mental excrement you produce by angrily power-slamming your head repeatedly up your ass.

Hey Mike from Stumptown - you're dead right and Troglaman The Guttersnipe just proved it.

I used to think troglaman wrote from a position of misinformation. Now I know he's just uninformed. Maybe "willfully ignorant" is more appropriate.

I would say "willfully ignorant" is exactly right Anonymous 10:16, which is why I say Troglaman The Guttersnipe power-slams his head up his ass rather than face reality. To say what he did with all the information around to show he's dumber than a doorknob shows a deliberate effort to be an ignorant asshole, and Guttersnipe succeeds at that at a world-class level I've only seen online in one other individual.
