A House committee is recalling a former Internal Revenue Service official who refused to answer questions about the agency's tea party controversy at a hearing last spring. But it's unclear whether she will answer questions this time, either.

Lois Lerner headed the IRS division that improperly targeted tea party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. After publicly disclosing the targeting, Lerner refused to answer questions about it at a congressional hearing, invoking her constitutional right not to incriminate herself.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa said Sunday he expected Lerner to testify at Wednesday's hearing. But a committee spokeswoman said Tuesday she could only confirm that Lerner was expected to attend the hearing.

Lerner's lawyer did not respond to a request for comment.
