WASHINGTON, D.C. – Lois Lerner, the former director of tax-exempt organizations at the IRS, once again refused to answer questions posed by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight Committee, which is investigating discrimination by the agency against conservative groups.

“Roads lead to Lois Lerner,” Issa told reporters at the end of the abbreviated hearing.

Issa adjourned the hearing after asking seven questions and receiving no answers from Lerner. After each question, she invoked her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself.

Most of the questions asked for an explanation of emails concerning IRS handing of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, including one in which Lerner wrote: “Tea Party Matter very dangerous.”

In an interview after the hearing, Issa told WND that Lerner’s lawyer had indicated that she would testify under certain conditions.

“She chose not to testify,” Issa said. “After an exhaustive seven questions, I determined she was not, under any circumstances, going to testify. … So, I adjourned.”
