This is the beginning of the end.  From Breitbart…..

Top IRS Official to Plead Fifth

Tuesday afternoon a bombshell was dropped into the already explosive IRS scandal when it was reported that Lois Lerner, a top IRS official in the non-profit division that paralyzed Tea Party groups with ongoing harassment, would invoke the Fifth Amendment and refuse to answer questions during Congressional testimony schedule before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.

The LA Times reports that Lerner will refuse to answer any questions about what she knows about the targeting of conservative groups. She will also refuse to explain why she is refusing to answer questions.

Lerner has retained defense attorney William W. Taylor 3rd, who sent a letter to Darrell Issa, the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee. In the letter Taylor said, “She has not committed any crime or made any misrepresentation but under the circumstances she has no choice but to take this course.”

Taylor is hoping Issa will excuse his client from having to testify in order to save her the embarrassment of having to invoke the Fifth in public. Per The L.A. Times, the committee hasn’t yet answered her request one way or the other.

ADDED: National Journal reports that Issa “has issued a  subpoena to Lerner anyway.”

All this means is something we all already knew.  It’s time to bring in a special prosecutor. 

Crimes were committed against the people, worse, in the name of the people.  People need to go to prison.  It’s as simple as that.

    Am I the only one that has a problem with her being allowed to take the 5th amendment on things like this? She answers to the public, the public trust is eviscerated. She needs to answer the questions or go to jail until she does. People in the public trust have a huge responsibility to be above the fray. And, I agree with Issa; let the public see the spectacle of an Obama official taking the 5th, it does wonders for engaging the public—just ask Mark McGuire!!!

      Pleading the fifth does not mean that she does not have to testify, it only means that any testimony that would incriminate her is excluded. She is still required to provide testimony, and she cannot choose to withhold information that will incriminate another party.

      I’m grabbing the popcorn!

    I don’t know why Skeeter lashes out so at bad weather, so far it has done nothing but help his political career. Katrina, Sandy and now the current devastation in OK, obscuring the full view of this administration’s criminality.

    I asked earlier today just what it will take to find Skeeter equally as guilty as Slick Willy the intern molester and liar, and Tricky Dick who tried to cover for bungling cat burglars. I guess throwing an election, running guns to Al-Qaeda, and murdering an ambassador just isn’t as horrific as I thought.

    This is the crack in Obama’s glass ball, Pleading the 5th is an indication of something big like most of an ice berg is hidden below the water line. The small low life’s are not going to take the fall for the bigger low life’s and so on.
    Popcorn time! the fun and well deserved justice for America and all freedom loving people is growing like a snowball rolling down hill. Obama,s Chicago style of government is going to hit the fan very soon and so will his legacy.

    XL Pipe line coming soon as a kiss and forgive gift?

    Taking the fifth should be spelled R-E-S-I-G-N-A-T-I-O-N!

    Your headline is a bit confusing. At first I thought they were actually agreeing to it.

    However, it is long past time for several of them. The worst anyone can come up with on the Bush administration is the Plame affair, done by a career bureaucrat. Yet the special prosecutor was named then. I guess Obama just does not want to do the time. He should have thought of that before he did the crime – but that is Chicago politics for you.

    • cdquarles says:

      The trouble with the Plame thing is that she wasn’t an undercover asset overseas, her husband was promoting her in the press and once the leaker had been identified (Richard Armitage), that should have been the end of it for Scooter Libby and a host of others.
