Looks like IRS official Lois Lerner may not get out of testifying before a Congressional committee after pleading the Fifth amendment earlier today.
Rep. Darrell Issa told Politico he will call on Lerner to appear before his committee again.
The California Republican said Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment right because she gave an opening statement at a hearing Wednesday. Lerner told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that she had done nothing wrong in the IRS targeting of conservative groups and then pleaded the Fifth so she didn't have to testify or answer questions.
"When I asked her questions from the very beginning, I did so so she could assert her rights prior to any statement," Issa told Politico. "She chose not to do so - so she waived."
