A top IRS official to take the Fifth
Lois Lerner was scheduled to appear before Congress tomorrow. She won't be answering any questions if she shows up, however. She will take the Fifth.
This makes me wonder if Greta Vansusteren got it right a few days ago, when she suggested investigators could learn more by questioning the lower level folks before putting the higher ups under oath. If only "low level employees" hatched this plan, it would make sense to question them under oath before calling in the "big shots." So far, those with the most authority and responsibility don't seem to remember much of anything. Even if Lois Lerner can answer questions, she says she won't.
WASHINGTON " A top IRS official in the division that reviews nonprofit groups will invoke the 5th Amendment and refuse to answer questions before a House committee investigating the agencyÃ¢ÂÂs improper screening of conservative nonprofit groups.
Lois Lerner, the head of the exempt organizations division of the IRS, wonÃ¢ÂÂt answer questions about what she knew about the improper screening " or why she didnÃ¢ÂÂt disclose it to Congress, according to a letter from her defense lawyer, William W. Taylor III. Lerner was scheduled to appear before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday."
