Trey Gowdy: How Can Lois Lerner Appeal to The Fifth If She Has Already Testified?

Trey Gowdy presents an irrefutable case as to why Lois Lerner should be held in contempt of Congress. If a single Democrat votes differently, it is merely proof they know there is something to hide, which may blowback all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

From the Independent Journal Review:

Trey Gowdy exploded in righteous indignation at a House Oversight Committee held for the purpose of a determining whether to hold Lois Lerner in contempt. The former IRS executive in charge of tax exempt entities is at the center of the IRS Tea Party targeting scandal, but has obstructed the investigation by declaring her Fifth Amendment right to silence, while making other statements in her defense.

From the Washington Post:

The outcome of the upcoming contempt vote is all but assured for the Republican-controlled committee, which already determined in a party-line vote last year that Lerner waived her right not to testify by declaring innocence before declining to answer questions at a June 2013 hearing.

If the contempt resolution is approved, then it goes to the full House before Lerner would face the consequences of her actions.

Sarah Hall Ingram – the one who held Lois Lerner’s post when the IRS targeting began – visited the White House 165 times. 165!! But we’re supposed to believe none of those visits had anything to do with persecuting groups that would have been unfavorable to the President, just prior to his re-election?

And now we learn that Lois Lerner was actually seeking a position—working for the President himself—but we’re to believe there was nothing nefarious about her work at the IRS, wherein an Obama-lover would be worth her weight in gold?

Again, since the facts as Gowdy outlined are clear, if any Democrat votes against contempt, it’s all the more reason to ask: What are you trying to hide?
