“Ladies and gentlemen, seeking the truth is the obligation of this committee. I can see no point in going further.” – Darrel Issa after Lois Lerner refused to answer his questions for the second time.
House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa should NOT have adjourned Wednesday’s hearing after former IRS official Lois Lerner repeatedly refused to answer questions about the IRS targeting conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status…that is NOT before he called for her immediate arrest for obstruction of justice after she, for the second time, pleaded ‘the Fifth’ to questions about her role in the scandal.
“On the advice of my counsel, I respectfully exercise my Fifth Amendment right and decline to answer that question,” Lois Lerner regurgitated over and over as she pleading ‘the Fifth’ to every one of Issa’s questions. Pleaded ‘the Fifth’…I thought this administration..of which Lerner is part…was supposed to be the most transparent administration in history…transparency my eye as this group of miscreants knows NOTHING but LIES and covered-ups all while Obama continues to bloviate about transparency
