Did Louis Lerner by making a statement viave her 5th amendment rights?
House council advises that she did.
Perhaps another consideration is that she refused to resign when asked.
As a private citizen Lerner would be ,in my opinion,on more solid grounds to take the Fifth to protect herself from criminal prosecution,but as an officer of the IRS she has a duty to disclose everything in her knowledge about what is taking place at the IRS.
Failure to do that should preclude her acting in any capacity as an IRS officer and drawing pay for her services .
I don’t see how it can be both ways as it is a clear conflict.
Just as important why would the Democrates vote along party lines to support her position when they publicly protest that they agree the IRS scandal is bipartisan issue.
Shouldn’t the Democrates also wish to find out what really happened?
