I don’t think Lerner’s going to have much of a choice since she inadvertently waived her Fifth Amendment right.
Via Washington Times:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said high-ranking IRS official Lois Lerner should have shed light on what led to the agency’s targeting of conservative groups in recent years instead of refusing to testify before House investigators.
“I do think the American people deserve answers,” the California Democrat said during her weekly news conference on Thursday. “I wish that she would have provided them.”
Ms. Lerner told the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on Wednesday she did nothing wrong while the agency imposed extra scrutiny on tea party groups and others at the IRS’ Cincinnati office from 2010 to 2012.
However, she refused to answer the committee’s questions. The committee may call her back, on the basis that she waived her Fifth Amendment privileges by providing an opening statement under oath.
