Lerner, Paz say they fear physical harm from enraged public, want IRS testimony sealed permanently



Yeah, don’t let the cretins know what we did. So we made their lives hell. So what?

By the way, Lois Lerner’s lawyer handled the “turnover ” of the Clinton emails too.

The people in Washington still think they can get away with anything.

(From The Washington Times)

Former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that members of her family, including “young children,” face death threats and a real risk of physical harm if her explanation of the tea party targeting scandal becomes public.

Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate.

“Whenever Mss. Lerner and Paz have been in the media spotlight, they have faced death threats and harassment,” attorneys for the two women argued.

Ms. Lerner and Ms. Paz gave taped depositions in a class-action lawsuit brought by tea party groups demanding answers and compensation for having been subjected to illegal targeting for their political beliefs.
