WATCH LIVE: IRS Director Lois Lerner at House Committee hearing on IRS targeting Tea Party groups – 9:30am EST

At 9:30AM this morning, Lois Lerner will testify (or plead the fifth) at a House Oversight Committee hearing on the IRS targeting Tea Party groups.

Lois Lerner, the IRS official who first disclosed the agency’s improper targeting of conservative groups two weeks ago, will invoke her right not to testify Wednesday for fear of self-incrimination, her lawyer has told the House Oversight Committee. “The committee has been contacted by Ms. Lerner’s lawyer who stated that his client intended to invoke her Fifth Amendment right and refuse to answer questions,” said oversight spokesman Ali Ahmad.

Lerner is the IRS official who first acknowledged the wrongdoing at a legal conference and later that day held a conference call explaining what had happened. The Post’s Fact Checker blog has given her statements Four Pinocchios — signaling significant misstatements.
