Top IRS official pleads the 5th rather than answer questions.

Well I guess this sums it all up. She is obviously protecting her butt or possibly people higher up in the chain who would have set this into motion.

Do I really need to mention who these people could be?

Is it not obvious to you that there is definitely more to hide?

What's funny is that she already testified and made a statement after being sworn in, then decided to invoke the 5th before anyone could question her. Legally, she basically waived the 5th...you can't give your side of the story than claim 5th protection when it comes to being asked follow up questions. Idiots, all of them.

Yeah, I thought that was very strange.

There should be a law that a pubic employee cannot plead the fifth or deny testimony as long as they are employed by the govt. When you plead the 5th, you serve yourself instead of the people you are working for and the ones that are paying you. If you want to get defensive and become evasive, quit. Then you can plead the 5th after you are subpoenaed as a private citizen.

No, there really shouldn't be. They can't be separate standards for US citizens that serve either in the public or private sector.

The only way we'd be able to have different standards is if we made it that public officials cannot face criminal prosecution...that would make things WAY worse, imagine if these a-holes CAN'T legally go to jail? #yikes

Only separate healthcare and retirement.

Lack of competency in Washington never ceases to amaze me. The federal government deserves to have its budget, programs and staff reduced by 90%.

The 5th Amendment is a constitutionally guaranteed right. It's adorable when people want to infringe on the the consituttion when it's convenient for their argument.

Her speech was funny...."I did not do anything wrong, I did not break any laws...." so why plead the 5th?

Would anyone here oppose politicians not being afforded the 5th amendment when it comes to work related things?

As for her pleading the 5th, no biggie. The repubs will be sure to charge her with a crime.

Based on the way it is written today. That should be part of becoming a poltician...you lose your 5th. Maybe that will thin the herd a little bit.

Because she can and her constitutional right. Funny that people buying guns are all so innocent because its their right. But someone invokes their 5th amendment right and they have something to hide and are guilty of soemthing? Good for her pleading the 5th and refusing to be a political punching bag by a commission will to twist, derange, and take of out context everything that is said.

Good luck charging her with a crime. If nobody went to jail over the economic crisis and all that ****, some mid-level employee won't go to jail or be charged because a few tea baggers had to answer a couple more questions.

Keep on being dumb.

Everything about you is viewed through the lens of partisanship. You are a representation of what is wrong with America.
