California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa told Fox News Wednesday his House committee could move as early as next week to consider holding former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt.
Lerner refused earlier in the day to testify on her role in the agencys targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups.
Her decision to plead the Fifth Amendment marked the second time in 10 months that she asserted her constitutional right not to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Affairs.
House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said of her refusal, at some point Lerner must testify or be held in contempt.
Our committee will consider it, Issa, the committee chairman, told Fox News Greta Van Susteren on On the Record.
We could consider it as early as next week.

Issa: Where scandals go to die.
Issa talks exclusively to Greta about today’s hearing; Will consider holding Lerner in contempt
I wonder, wonder, wonder when.....when will “talking the talk” become “walking the walk”?......
....I’m still wondering, but have decided not to hold my breath whilst I wait and wonder.
Not holding my breath. The pubbies will wimp out. Even if they held her in contempt, Obama and Holder will pull a ‘never mind’ Jedi mind trick, and the sissypants won’t want to be called racists by bucking them...
Why next week?
Why not LAST MONTH?
How many more must be assaulted by corrupt government
because the EXEMPT Congress is too busy, too selfserving,
and too treasonous??
NEVE HAPPEN. BONER IS BEING BLACKMAILED JUST LIKE ROBERTS, THANKS TO CLOWN’S NSA.
If memory serves, he said almost the exact same thing last year.
By the way, whatever happened to Sheriff Joe's "earthshaking revelations?"
I'm sure there's no pattern here.
Damn it NOT could - should!!!!!
“Issa: We May Hold Lois Lerner in Contempt As Early As Next Week”
He's pissing off the Pope.
I am tired of these weaklings.
Dead End Darrell strikes again! (...and again, and again, and...)
Consider? Get it done!
Testimony to Issa would be the easy way. An angry citizen, unhappy with the way their taxes are spent may grab her and impose more leftist tactics to make her sing like a canary. Myself, I would not hold back at the incremental increase in force against this certain criminal communist. The muslims that Zero worships know how to do head chopping. Is turnabout not fair play?
