Lois Lerner to plead the fifth


LINK
quote:

WASHINGTON – A top IRS official in the division that reviews nonprofit groups will invoke the Fifth Amendment and refuse to answer questions before a House committee investigating the agency’s improper screening of conservative nonprofit groups.

Lois Lerner, the head of the exempt organizations division of the IRS, won’t answer questions about what she knew about the improper screening – or why she didn’t reveal it to Congress, according to a letter from her defense lawyer, William W. Taylor 3rd.

Lerner was scheduled to appear before the House Oversight committee Wednesday.


Why would she do this if, as Rex and other progressives have claimed, it was just low level employees?

Lerner needs to be fired.

ETA: Here is the best part of the article
quote:

Since Lerner won’t answer questions, Taylor [her attorney] asked that she be excused from appearing, saying that would “have no purpose other than to embarrass or burden her.” There was no immediate word whether the committee will grant her request.

Poor baby. We wouldn't want this totally innocent woman to be burdened or embarrassed.

I would have her sit there for the whole fricking time, peppering her with questions, making her plead the 5th to every fricking question.

Would make for some great soundbytes on the national news broadcasts,

If Issa excuses her, he's a complete idiot. I can't imagine him actually doing that. I suspect her lawyer is just trying to pressure Issa by releasing this statement.

She should be made to take the 5th as many times as possible in front of television cameras.

It would make a great montage for campaign videos.

For the same reason Obama has paid millions to lawyers to hide all information dealing with his past. They are guilty as sin.

What I want to hear from the lefties is why does she have to worry about INCRIMINATING herself if there's nothing to see here?

This explains why Baghdad Bob-Jay Carney had a bounce in his step today at the briefing. They are all relieved... for now.

Her lawyers name William W. Taylor 3rd.

Bill,Bill Taylor the fricking third dude.
