Really???..You think that the eyewitnesses were Republicans??
I'd think they were Democrats, if they were appointed by this administration.
Lois Lerner, the IRS official who first disclosed the agency's improper targeting of conservative groups two weeks ago, will invoke her right not to testify Wednesday for fear of self-incrimination, her lawyer has told the House Oversight Committee.
"The committee has been contacted by Ms. Lerner's lawyer who stated that his client intended to invoke her Fifth Amendment right and refuse to answer questions," said oversight spokesman Ali Ahmad.
Ahmad said Lerner, the head of the IRS's tax-exempt organizations division, would still be required to appear before the committee, which means she will have to plead the Fifth in person and on camera.
"Ms. Lerner remains under subpoena from Chairman Issa to appear at tomorrow's hearing — the committee has a Constitutional obligation to conduct oversight," Ahmad said. "Chairman Issa remains hopeful that she will ultimately decide to testify tomorrow about her knowledge of outrageous IRS targeting of Americans for their political beliefs."
The TRULY amazing thing is that there still is an amendment, that hasn't been gutted....I guess the administration had to leave this one alone...it's a 'right' that THEY didn't want to abolish yet....and for 'good' reason.
The rest of the amendments, aww, the hell with them...they're a nuisance....those 'commoners', who think the Constitution is still valid, should be rounded up!...but leave the Fifth amendment alone for now...the administration isn't 'done' yet!...then they'll get rid of it, as well.
...and now for your entertainment...written for a similar situation.....
