"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Next step is to hold her in Contempt of Congress, and start looking into prosecuting her to the fullest extent of the law.  That will take a while but at least we are getting to see her plead the fifth to every question Congress has...

So much for that, the committee is adjourned, and Issa just shut down Cummings from running his mouth on the record.

Screw him.

Cummings is STILL going on and on. He has two other members of the BCC and he is lying his ass off repeating the same lie over and over and then saying he wants to get to the truth.

When Issa just read the truth and Lerner plead the fifth.

Okay he finally walked off just now.

BREAKING: Lois Lerner Refuses to Answer Questions Before Congress, Pleads the Fifth Again
Katie Pavlich | Mar 05, 2014

Appearing in front of the House Oversight Committee Wednesday morning Lois Lerner, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS, refused to answer questions asked by lawmakers by pleading the Fifth Amendment. Earlier this week, Lerner's attorney William Taylor confirmed to Committee members in an email that she would testify. Lerner was issued a subpoena last summer after admitting the IRS singled out conservative groups for extra scrutiny.

"On the advice of my counsel I respectfully exercise my fifth amendment right and decline to answer that question," Lerner said.

Last year, Lerner was called to testify in front of the same Committee where she also invoked her Fifth Amendment rights after making the statement, "I have not done anything wrong. I have not broken any laws, I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations and I have not provided false information to this or any other congressional committee." The Committee voted and concluded that because Lerner made a statement before pleading the Fifth, she effectively waved her Fifth Amendment rights.

When asked by Chairman Darrell Issa if she believed there wasn't a smidgen of corruption inside the IRS when it came to the inappropriate targeting of tea party and conservative groups, Lerner answered, "On the advice of my counsel I respectfully exercise my fifth amendment right and decline to answer that question."

The Committee hearing was quickly dismissed after Issa put contempt charges for Lerner on the table.

"Ladies and gentlemen, seeking the truth is the duty of this committee and I see no point in moving forward," Issa said. "We're adjourned, close it down."
