I’m not defending Lerner, just asking a question here: If she has a legal right to take the fifth, how can she be held in contempt?

Oversight Committee: Lerner Waived Her 5th Amendment Right
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.
She gave up her right last time by making a STATEMENT that she was innocent!!! Trey Gowdy is an EXPERT on this!!
