Lois Lerner will testify on Wednesday about the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups after declining to appear before Congress last year, Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican and chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Sunday on “Fox News Sunday.”

“We know what she did in most cases, what we don’t know is why she did it,” Mr. Issa said.

In addition to looking for the reason behind the targeting and finding out if anyone else was involved, Mr. Issa said Congress will work to put in a system of checks and balances to ensure one person alone can’t target specific groups on audits or approval of applications.

“We do want to know that burning question of who else knew about it,” he said. “Candidly, the American people want to know it won’t happen again.”
