IRS Scandal Hearing Promptly Shuts Down As Lois Lerner Evokes The 5th

Lerner copyThis morning, ex-Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner appeared before Darrell Issa’s House Oversight Committee to answer questions about the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups.

However, Lerner promptly invoked her rights under the 5th Amendment and refused to answer any questions.

President Obama claimed that this was all just a “phony scandal,” and recently declared there wasn’t “even a smidgen of corruption” involved here. So, if there is nothing to hide, why is Lerner refusing to offer her testimony? Is she really that afraid she might incriminate herself? I mean, just like the president said, it was just a few little “boneheaded decisions,” right?

Yet, Lerner chose to plead the Fifth. It certainly makes us all wonder.

Of course, Lerner’s silence didn’t stop Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings from starting a rant of his own, right after Rep. Darrell Issa adjourned the hearing.
