Gowdy: Lerner 'Did a Lot of Talking for Someone Who Wants to Remain Silent'
'If you honestly believe that you can make 17 separate factual assertions and still invoke your right to remain silent, then please tell me what waiver is'

Gowdy: Lerner 'Did a Lot of Talking for Someone Who Wants to Remain Silent' (CNS News)

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) – at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee business meeting on Thursday – said he counted “17 separate factual assertions” Lois Lerner made in her opening statement before invoking the Fifth Amendment when she was subpoenaed to testify last year on the congressional probe of the IRS scandal.

“Mr. Chairman, I counted 17 separate factual assertions by Ms. Lerner – not those three little sentences that my colleagues like to cite – 17 separate factual assertions. That is a lot of talking for somebody who wants to remain silent. That’s a lot of talking,” Gowdy said.
