    That is hilarious. If you are innocent, what would you NEED to GAIN?

    There's some real question on this issue. She was sworn. Typically, once she began speaking in her introductory remarks, she would have waived the 5th Amendment right. To take the 5th, you are limited to saying your name and, I think, your birth date. However, this was a Congressional hearing and traditionally the witness makes an opening statement. Chances are, the situation was so strange that the Committee Chair decided to let her go while the lawyers met.

    She can be recalled. The fact that she can be recalled allows the committee to get their ducks lined up in this contentious situation.

    IRS Official Lois Lerner: 'I Have Not Done Anything Wrong'
    10:21 AM, May 22, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER
    "I have not done anything wrong," she said. "I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations. And I have not provided false information to this or any other congressional committee."Lerner adds that she invoke her 5th Amendment right and "will not answer any of the questions or testify today":

    Stan, I was referring to members on this forum. I don't recall any members on this forum saying she was innocent. I would expect any half way intelligent person in her position to plead the fifth, nothing good for her could come from being grilled by this panel. I believe if Roger Clemens or Andy Pettitte had to do it over they would have done the same.

    Eric,
    You are right on about Lerner making a mistake by giving an opening statement at the hearing when her intent was to plead the 5th. At the end of the hearing, Chairman Issa said the same thing... and he further stated that while she was dismissed today, she could be recalled to testify. After saying that, he said that the hearing was NOT adjourned, but that it was in recess. Which means it will continue.

    Helen
