Congressman Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, announce this morning that a vote will take place next Thursday to determine if the Obama IRS’s Lois Lerner will be held in contempt. Issa tweeted Thursday morning, April 3rd:
most transparent administration in history” has plead the Fifth Amendment twice, a right taken against having to incriminate herself.
Lerner had previously, in May of 2013, admitted that the Obama IRS had used the power of the agency to target Obama’s political opponents, specifically non-profit groups involved in the pro-liberty, pro-Constitution Tea Party movement. Groups which had the words “Tea Party” or “patriot” in their applications were singled out by the department within the agency that Lerner led which was responsible for approving non-profit organizations.
