Lois Lerner’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance at IRS hearing [VIDEO]

Lois Lerner appeared before the House Committee On Oversight & Government Reform today but you probably missed it. Having stated in advance that she was going to invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, Lerner guaranteed that the appearance would at best yield some entertaining grandstanding by Republicans.

Even that didn’t happen, though, as committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa of California let Lerner leave after making an exculpatory statement.

So in case you missed it because you went to get a coffee, had a potty break or just blinked at the wrong second, here are the edited highlights (now with added Richard Nixon).
