ex-IRS official Lerner takes 5th Published March 05, 2014 FoxNews.com A House hearing on the IRS targeting scandal rapidly broke down into a heated and deeply personal argument between a top Democrat and Republican, moments after former IRS official Lois Lerner once again invoked her Fifth Amendment right not to testify. Lerner, who last year refused to answer questions about her role in singling out Tea Party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status, was called back before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday. Though Republicans argue she waived her Fifth Amendment right by giving a statement during the last hearing, Lerner continued to invoke that right on Wednesday. "On the advice of my counsel, I respectfully exercise my Fifth Amendment right and decline to answer that question," she said in response to several questions.
Issa is an idiot...
Nothing shakes the memory like a jail cell.
If they have the goods like Issa says.
This pathetic election stealing pig should be behind bars.
Will there be charges?

We didn't get a smidgeon of Testimony.
Our Government Hearings are like bad episodes of The Three Stooges...

You are correct.
If you can use your people at the IRS to attack your political opponents.
Essentially, rigging a Presidential Election.
Then as an employee of the people you take the 5th?
If she does not go to jail...Then the entire system is rigged.
