Gowdy on corruption...

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., blasted President Obama at the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing Thursday, asking how he can possibly conclude there was not a “smidgen of corruption” when at least 41 witnesses have yet to be interviewed.
“The president says there’s not a smidgen of criminality or corruption,” he said. “Do either of you remember seeing a witness named Lois Lerner sitting at the very table y’all are sitting at? Do you remember her invoking her Fifth Amendment privilege?” he asked.
He then noted that many of the groups targeted by the IRS simply wanted to inform others of the U.S. Constitution, “the one that she availed herself of the very second she was exposed to criminal investigation.”

Right, Mr Gowdy, the fifth amendment guarantees a right, not a privilege.
