Put another way, Lois Lerner is demanding guaranteed legal protection from the people whose taxes fund paychecks she continues to receive:

Embattled IRS official Lois Lerner will not testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee unless she’s given immunity from prosecution, her lawyer told POLITICO Tuesday.

“They can obtain her testimony tomorrow by doing it the easy way … immunity,” William W. Taylor III said in a phone interview. “That’s the way to resolve all of this.”

The comments reflect the hard-line approach Lerner, the former head of the IRS division that scrutinized conservative groups, and her legal team are taking in defending her role in the agency’s scandal.

Ed Morrissey adds this:

That makes it sound as though Lerner’s giving a strong hint to the committee that they should be negotiating with her for this testimony. No prosecutor would make an immunity offer without first getting a proffer on what the witness has to disclose. Few witnesses or their attorneys would demand immunity without having something to tell, either, and without that “something” pointing at bigger fish to fry than themselves.

That’s is an awful lot of wrangling for a public official who claimed to have broken no laws:
