Opinion: Lois Lerner May Have Retired, but She Will Never Face the Consequences of Her Actions
Monday it was reported that Lois Lerner is retiring.
She is the IRS official that, in a hearing before congress, made a speech testifying that she did nothing wrong and then took her Fifth Amendment privilege not to testify, after she had testified, essentially denying the ability of anyone to question her statements.
Her behavior, many saw as a move akin to a spit in the face of the congress and an abuse of the fifth that should not have been permitted.
She was placed on paid leave after her remarks as more and more evidence came forth that the IRS targeting of Right-wing groups went to the top with members such as herself, and that the story of rouge agents was a complete fabrication.
Like with many other scandals under this administration, I am sure that this retirement is just another move to try and bury the truth.
The ‘most transparent’ administration is about as transparent as granite.
Lerner will never face the consequences of her actions, just like those responsible for the multitude of scandals under this president will not face up.
Those that lie for Obama get promoted, while those that demand to tell the truth are punished, as we saw with Susan Rice, who blamed a video for the Benghazi attacks and was promoted, versus the recent reports that an official that refused to sign a non-disclosure over the incident was suspended.
Lerner was a steadfast liar, and as such she will retire comfortably, and will never have to face up to her actions.
