re: #81 Bert’s House of Beef and Obdicuts

I don’t really think contempt of congress is what she’s worried about; I think it’s that the law governing how the IRS can ‘profile’ is really vague and so, while she completely believes she has broken no laws, a prosecutor might well be able to indict her for it.

If she thinks she broke the law (as in a prosecutor from another branch of gov) sure she needs the 5th. But I’m far from convinced this is not another overblown response to overblown threats that continue to obfuscate the data.
