During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) asserted that Lois Lerner’s attorneys have agreed to let her testify on Wednesday, March 5th. During his exchange with host Chris Wallace, Issa focused on mounting evidence that Lerner was at the center of the targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups. Regular readers to our site know that while significant, those charges – when contrasted with her division’s favorable treatment of Malik Obama – are both bolstered and pale by comparison.
A hurdle that still must be cleared is getting committee members to introduce the Malik Obama angle of the Lois Lerner / IRS scandal into the court of public opinion. One of the best ways to do so would be during the March 5th hearing. Back on February 20th, two letters outlining the explosive details of IRS treatment of Malik Obama (under Lerner), coupled with his connection to terrorism, were sent to several Congressmen. Three of them are on the House Oversight Committee, to include Chairman Issa.
Between now and March 5th, please contact the offices of Issa, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and tell them you want them to ask Ms. Lerner questions about why Malik Obama’s foundation received such favorable, illegal treatment under Lerner – especially if you’re in one of their districts.

Here is the video of Issa telling Wallace that Lerner will indeed testify. You’ll note at the beginning of this clip, Issa says he has new evidence against Lerner that makes it in her best interest to do so. While he does not divulge what that information is, the Malik Obama angle would certainly qualify.
