In Response to Re: D.C. TURNS ON OBAMA:
Top IRS official will invoke the Fifth Amendment in congressional hearing about tea party targeting program
The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday afternoon that Lois Lerner, who heads up the Internal Revenue Service's tax-exempt division, plans to invoke the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in a hearing Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Affairs.
The Fifth Amendment provides that U.S. citizens may not be compelled to offer testimony if telling the truth would incriminate them.
Lerner's defense lawyer, William W. Taylor III, wrote to the committee on Tuesday that his client would refuse to answer questions related to what she knew about the extra levels of scrutiny applied to conservative nonprofit organizations that applied for tax-exempt status beginning in 2010.
The rats are beginning to jump ship!!!

Public servants who won't give testimony to congress should immediately be dismissed from their government jobs and a full FBI investigation be initiated. Claiming the 5th amendment is as good as an admission that you have done something wrong and you don't want to incriminate yourself by making a confession. We know from the Chicago politics used to pass Obamacare that this administration is not adverse to bribing or offering something of value to get what they want. This investigation needs to continue in spite of what Liberals contend. They are complicit to the crime by attempting to stop the investigation with their rhetoric. It's understandable because Libs hate the right, that they don't want the truth to surface. How many more scandals will it take for them to come to their senses? It appears that their inability to connect the dots is because of their flawed ideology of the difference between right and wrong. Any means to their end.
