Rep. Darrell Issa confirmed on On the Record Tuesday evening that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will decide on Friday whether Lois Lerner’s Fifth Amendment plea is valid.
“You don’t get to pick and choose” what you say and then refuse to answer questions, the Oversight Committee chairman argued. He expects that the committee will work to get Lerner’s “full testimony” in the coming weeks.
Issa also provided details on the questionable IRS contracts that surfaced recently. The granting of these types of contracts to companies like Strong Castle Inc. ”looks wrong” and will be investigated by Congress, he explained.
The Republican representative from California described the IRS as “an agency in crisis.”
