Oversight Committee: Lois Lerner Waived her Fifth Amendment Rights (time to ask her about Malik Obama)

Today, the House Oversight Committee passed a resolution affirming that when IRS Tax-Exempt official Lois Lerner made nine assertions of fact back on May 22nd, she necessarily waived her fifth amendment rights, which she subsequently attempted to invoke. Here is a copy of the resolution that was ultimately passed along party lines.

Via Oversight Committee:

On a vote of 22-17, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee today approved a resolution determining that IRS official Lois Lerner waived her 5th amendment rights when at a May 22, 2013 hearing she offered testimony and answered questions.

“Today’s vote brings us closer to hearing Ms. Lerner’s important testimony about the targeting of conservatives,” said Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif. “The Committee remains focused on hearing Ms. Lerner’s full and truthful testimony.”

Now that we are a step closer to Lerner having to come back to testify in front of the Oversight Committee, perhaps she can be asked about her decision to sign off on the 501(c)(3) application of Barack Obama’s half-brother, Malik. Not only did Lerner approve the application in record time but she also illegally back-dated it 38 months, which is a crime.

That’s not all. Evidence suggests that in so doing, Lerner became an accessory to terror funding. 

Here is Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) today, making the case for passage of the aforementioned resolution. As usual, Gowdy shows the adolescents how it’s done:

Here is the excerpt from Lerner’s testimony on May 22nd, during which Gowdy first called her out for “telling her side of the story” and then invoking her fifth amendment rights. If not for Gowdy’s alertness on May 22nd, the resolution that was passed today may never have been drafted:

If Lerner is called back to testify – today’s resolution was the first step – she should be asked about her approval of the 501(c)(3) application made by Malik Obama for the Barack H. Obama Foundation (BHOF). If you’re unfamiliar with the story, this video should explain it:
