Skip to comments.The Insiders: There are plenty of smidgens in the IRS scandal (WashPost blog)

Today, the House Rules Committee is considering a resolution recommending that former IRS official Lois Lerner be held in contempt for refusing to answer questions about her role in the IRS targeting of President Obamas political opponents. It is likely that the resolution will pass, and then it will come to the floor for a full vote in the House. When it does, the vote to hold Lerner in contempt should be bipartisan if not unanimous. Any Democrats who vote no should be labeled as enablers of obstruction of justice. It should be impossible for Democrats to defend a vote that could only serve to encourage more corruption and non-cooperation in the future. Of course Lerner had the right to plead the fifth, but that doesnt mean Democrats should not pay a price for voting to bless her stonewalling.
In an interview with Fox News Bill OReilly in February, President Obama pre-empted his own Department of Justice investigation and declared that there was not a smidgen of corruption in the IRS scandal. Well, I think a senior official at the center of the allegations pleading the fifth constitutes a smidgen. It is not unfair to draw logical inferences from her continued refusal to cooperate with the investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups. . .
