This time, she has to testify.

House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is hauling Lois Lerner back to Congress.

Issa told Lerner’s attorney in a Tuesday letter that he expected the retired IRS official to appear before his committee on March 5.

Lerner, the official at the center of the IRS targeting controversy, invoked her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination at a May 2013 hearing, just days after she apologized for the agency’s treatment of Tea Party groups.
But the Oversight Committee later ruled that Lerner waived her rights by making an opening statement, setting the stage for her recall next week.

In his letter to William Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, Issa said that her testimony “remains critical to this committee’s investigation.”

    The Great Swami sez: “I see the future and the future is this ignorant slut taking the fifth again. I see them threatening to put her in jail for contempt. I see ‘that great constitutional lawyer’ all over them like cheese on a burito. I see the right doing a great imitation of Gilda Radner. Never mind.”

    There will be no accountability for the not even a smidgen of wrong doing. These hearings are political theater. Those of us that insist on a fiscally responsible government are a thorn in the side of the establishment republicans.
