Out of the same mouth proceeds these two statements:
1. "I have not done anything wrong. I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules and regulations. I have not provided false information to this or any other congressional committee."
2. "I assert my constitutional right not to testify or answer questions related to the subject matter of this hearing."
Yet, the IRS Inspector General said that someone or some persons have violated the rules, ethics and laws regarding IRS regulations and tax process.
Since she was the head of the group that is under investigation, and since she is profoundly innocent, as she claims, it would seem logical that she would be happy to help the American people determine what was done wrong, where it took place, even who participated in the wrong doing that has been admitted by the IRS. And for which the IRS has issued an apology. With her key testimony, it is clear that we could move on.
Another approach is to get the personnel list and start hauling everyone before Congress, clerks, supervisors, and managers and ask them the questions that Lois Lerner refuses to answer - because she is profoundly innocent. But, that is why Ms. Lerner has received $100K+ in bonuses these past three years. She was the leader; thus, a reasonable expectation would be that she would still be a leader. Not so much, apparently.
