Issa Statement on Lerner Exit

Press Release
Sep 23, 2013

WASHINGTON- House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) issued the following statement on Lois Lerner’s departure from the IRS:

“Lois Lerner’s exit from the IRS does not alter the Oversight Committee’s interest in understanding why applicants for tax exempt status were targeted and inappropriately treated because of their political beliefs. We still don’t know why Lois Lerner, as a senior IRS official, had such a personal interest in directing scrutiny and why she denied improper conduct to Congress. Her departure does not answer these questions or diminish the Committee’s interest in hearing her testimony.”

In June, the Committee adopted a resolution determining that Lerner waived her 5th amendment rights when at a May 22, 2013 hearing she offered testimony and answered questions.

Last week, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee circulated a memo to Members offering an interim update on the status of its investigation.
