WASHINGTON (AP) - IRS official Lois Lerner plans to plead the Fifth when she appears today before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Lerner heads the section of the Internal Revenue Service that placed under extra scrutiny conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status.
Her attorney says requiring Lerner to appear today "would have no purpose other than to embarrass or burden her."
The attorney says Lerner will use her Fifth Amendment right to not incriminate herself.
