Rep. Darrell Issa is convening a meeting of the House Oversight Committee to consider contempt charges against Lois Lerner.

The “business meeting” will be held on April 10, 2014 at 9 a.m. in the Rayburn Office Building.

“Ms. Lerner’s involvement in wrongdoing and refusal to meet her legal obligations has left the committee with no alternative but to consider a contempt finding,” Issa said in a statement.

While the last full Oversight hearing resulted in a headline-making back-and-forth between Issa and Democratic Ranking Member Elijah Cummings, the last important Oversight Committee business meeting resulted in the finding that Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights.

Committee business meetings are open to and attended by committee members from both parties.
