Wondering what Lois Lerner had to say at this morning’s House Oversight Committee meeting?
On the advice of my counsel I respectfully exercise my Fifth Amendment right and decline to answer that question.
Although the IRS division caught targeting conservative groups was under Lerner’s leadership, this is the second time she's pled the Fifth, dodging the committee’s attempts to uncover the truth.
On March 1, Lerner’s lawyer said in an email that Lerner was willing to testify, but her brief response proved otherwise.
Last year at similar hearing, Lerner made the following claim:
I have not done anything wrong. I have not broken any laws, I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations and I have not provided false information to this or any other congressional committee.
