Lois Lerner, Will She or Won’t She Testify Today in IRS-GATE House Oversight and Government Reform Committee? (Update: Lois Lerner Evokes Her 5th Ammendment Rights Again)
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is set to begin in about 15 minutes and the question still remains, will former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official Lois Lerner testify, plead the 5th or ask for a continence? So what will she do?
Will she come clean and save herself, or continue the cover up?
When embattled former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official Lois Lerner appears before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, the biggest question is whether she will testify or invoke her Fifth Amendment rights, as she has done before.
As of Sunday, the answer to that question is anyone’s guess.
Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., appeared on “Fox News Sunday” with the breaking news that the attorney for the woman at the heart of the IRS targeting scandal said she would testify before the panel.
“We’ve had a back and forth negotiation. But quite frankly, we believe that evidence that we’ve gathered causes her in her best interest to be summoned to testify,” Issa said.
The problem: Lerner’s attorney says it’s not true.
“As of now, she intends to continue to assert her Fifth Amendment rights,” William W. Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, told Politico. “I do not know why Issa said what he said.”

YUP, NOT A SMIDGEN OF SCANDAL.
