    I suspect when she asserts her 5th amendment rights to not incriminate herself... she is really trying to protect the Administration, not herself.

    I don't think she did anything illegal here (and she knows it). But she may have done something embarrassing to the Administration (and she knows it).

    I think after the Scooter Libby affair all public officials have learned to not say ANYTHING to Congress. They are just out to get you for political gain... you are just a pawn they are willing to sacrificed in an attempt to embarrass the administration... why say anything? It can't help you, it can only harm you.

    She's smart.

    Or could it be that "conservative" non-profits looking for a tax exempt status is exactly what keeps them from getting the exemption.

    You can't be conservative OR liberal and get a tax exempt status - that's the point!

    She says she didn't do anything wrong, but she keeps evoking her 5th amendment right to not incriminate herself. I don't get why she's so afraid she will incriminate herself... if she didn't to anything wrong. Just answer the questions and tell them what you did IF you did nothing wrong.

    Our laws are corrupt, and they are now a potent tool for corrupt people in power. There is nothing we can legally do about it, because the corruption is now protected as legal precedent.

    On and on we go with the baseless accusations against Obama.

    A special investigator should be appointed. The Obama administration may be found to be corrupt beyond measure.

    The Obama administration is THE most corrupt in our nation's history, period! The question now is, what will Americans do about it? We can start the cleaning process in November!
