#IRS SCANDAL UPDATE: Lois Lerner Takes The 5th Again
When asked by Chairman Darrell Issa if she believed there wasn’t a smidgen of corruption inside the IRS when it came to the inappropriate targeting of tea party and conservative groups, Lerner answered, “On the advice of my counsel I respectfully exercise my fifth amendment right and decline to answer that question.”
The Committee hearing was quickly dismissed after Issa put contempt charges for Lerner on the table.
“Ladies and gentlemen, seeking the truth is the duty of this committee and I see no point in moving forward,” Issa said. “We’re adjourned, close it down.”
