One more time....<quoted text> She made a public statement ,but did not answer any question asked by the Committee.Do you know the difference? Lerner did not 'waive her 5th Amendment right'.
When she gave an opening statement she technically waved her right [to claim the fifth].I didn't think I needed to state the obvious as her claiming the fifth was the topic.
When you claim the fifth; you cannot make statements.
When she gave an opening statement she waived her right.
