The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee passed a resolution Friday finding that senior IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself at a hearing last month.
Lerner read a statement to the Committee on May 22, while under oath, in which she appealed to the Fifth Amendment. She did make a few responses following that statement to Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA). Republicans, including South Carolina’s Trey Gowdy, said that her actions waived her right to refuse to testify.
Issa then adjourned the hearing for recess in order to preserve their ability to subpoena Lerner in the future.
