Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings loses his mind after Lois Lerner pleads the Fifth
Liberals love to cry when their hypocrisy is shown for what it is.
Check it out:
Moments ago, embattled ex-Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner appeared before Darrell Issa’s House Oversight Committee. She was supposedly there to answer questions about the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups. You may remember that President Obama has dismissed this entire scandal because he claims there wasn’t “even a smidgen of corruption” involved.
That’s weird, because Lois Lerner promptly invoked her rights under the 5th Amendment and refused to answer any questions. For the record, the 5th Amendment is the one that deals with not offering testimony that might incriminate yourself. You’d think that would be hard to do if the President’s “not a smidgen” claim was true.
Anyway, there was no surprise here. Everyone expected that – without immunity – this was exactly what Lerner would do. The interesting part came after she clammed up and a visibly frustrated Issa adjourned the hearing.
