Well, this should be fascinating to watch.
A letter obtained by The Los Angeles Times reveals that Lois Lerner, the IRS official in charge of overseeing requests for tax-exempt status who first broke the news of that division’s targeting of conservative groups, plans to invoke her right against self-incrimination in scheduled testimony before a House committee on Wednesday.
And here’s your moment of comedy!
Lerner’s attorney has requested that, since she will be pleading the Fifth Amendment, that she be excused from testimony. Issa has not yet responded to that request.
Allow me to respond to that request for Chairman Issa: HAHAHAHAno.
