Lois Lerner (IRS) Held in Contempt of Congress

Recommended Posts

Committee chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said Lerner had effectively waived her Fifth Amendment right not to answer questions by providing an opening statement at the 2013 hearing. In her statement, Lerner said she did nothing wrong, broke no laws and never lied to Congress.

How is it possible to be held in contempt for pleading the 5th? Isn't that a constitutional right?

Not necessarily. If supeoned to testify in front if a Grand Jury you have no 5th amendment rights. It is possible that a Congressional inquiry holds similar authority.
