Trey Gowdy Absolutely Obliterates Lois Lerner As Vote Passes To Hold Her In Contempt

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. House Government Oversight and Reform Committee voted 21-12 Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions about the targeting of conservative groups. “We need Ms. Lerner’s testimony to complete our oversight work,” House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said. “American taxpayers certainly don’t get to plead the Fifth and escape all accountability when the IRS audits them.”
