IRS Watch: Counting Down The Minutes Of Lois Lerner Invoking The Fifth Amendment
Lerner Made Opening Statement, Made Assertions, Verified Document Then Invoked The Fifth?

The House Oversight Committee starts their IRS clusterfruck hearing at 8:30 AM. You can watch it live below:

Will Lerner show and invoke The Fifth?

Update: Appears to be some technical difficulties and if the livestream stops you can watch it here

Update: She showed and yes she will use The U.S. Constitution of which conservatives were denied use of.

Update: Lerner is giving her opening statement. "I have not done anything wrong" "I have been advised by my counsel" "I will not answer or testify today"

Uh oh, it appears Lerner waived her right to invoke The Fifth per Rep Issa and Rep Gowdy as she gave an opening statement "with an "assertion". Rep Gowdy: "Ms. Lerner cannot tell her side of the story and then not stick around for “cross-examination.” The audience applauded after Rep Gowdy's statement:

Cummings disagrees, "this is not a federal court of law". Pfffft

Rep Issa after discussing said problem: "The witness and council are dismissed" Lerner was last seen running down the hallway with quite a few cameramen following her.

Update: Rep Cummings is trying like hell to blame Booooosh.

Update: No wonder Shulman is so evasive, even though he donated to the DNC in 2004, GW still appointed him

Michelle Obama was chummy with the Inspector General while in law school?

Update per Issa: "E-mails between @GOPoversight and IG show IG delayed reporting findings of #IRS investigation to Congress http://t.co/xMffZUSsRC"

1 Will Lois take the 5'th? Hell yes

A more important question is whether any Republiclowns have the balls to bust her and Chimpie.

2 "I didn't do anything wrong, however, I am pleading the fifth, because if I did say what I did, it would self incriminate me."

3 She's fallen on her Obama sword. Now she'll be demoted to a much higher paying position.

5 Sad but true. Where are the republican "leadership?" I see nothing! Clowns. Boehner and McConnell need to go. Cruz rocks.

6 She was not arrested, not read her Miranda and under no actual charges yet sought salvation in the very bill of rights the IRS has trampled over to inflict damage to the other political party.
How like Muslim's these democrats be!
