Nine and a half months after declining to answer a House committee's questions, a former IRS official returns to Congress.
FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern reports from Capitol Hill:
House Oversight Committee Chairman Republican Darrell Issa still has plenty of questions for Lois Lerner.
(Issa) "Ms. Lerner, do you believe that there is not a smidgen of corruption in the IRS targeting of Conservatives?"
(Lerner) "On advice of my counsel, I respectfully exercise my Fifth Amendment right and decline to answer that question."
After several minutes of that, Issa adjourned over objections of Ranking Democrat Elijah Cummings.
(Cummings) "May I ask my question? May I state my statement?"
(Issa) "You're all free to leave, we've adjourned."
Lerner was in charge of the IRS's tax-exempt office when the agency was accused of improperly scrutinizing Tea Party groups.
