Hmm … Appears that Lois Lerner May Have Printed Out Some Emails Afterall As GOP Cries Foul That She Attempted to Circumvent Internal Communications from Congress

 

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we practice to deceive. Funny thing about lies, its hard to keep them straight all of the time.

Not only have we now learned that former IRS employee Lois Lerner did print out some emails after all, she also appears to have made a concerted effort to intentionally bypass retention policies in order to keep information from Congress. Imagine that. From The Politico comes, Lois Lerner cautioned against email chatter amid lawmaker probes.

Ask yourself, why would some ask such a question as to whether OCS messages are saved?

Former IRS official Lois Lerner said she warned her colleagues to be careful about what they write in emails amid congressional inquiries, according to new emails released by House Oversight Republicans.

She also asked whether the IRS’s internal messaging system could be searched, in the same email to an IRS colleague. It was sent April 9, 2013, less than two weeks after the IRS inspector general that unearthed the tea party targeting practice shared a draft report with the agency.

“I was cautioning folks about email and how we have had several occasions where Congress has asked for emails and there has been an electronic search for responsive emails — so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails,” she wrote to Maria Hooke, the director of business systems planning for the tax-exempt division. “Someone asked if OCS conversations were also searchable — I don’t know. … Do you know?”

      prosecute her to the fullest extent of the law and then, take it a few steps further.

      Lois Learner is or was an attorney. The court and the House committees need to continue their probe including extending the investigations to her time at the Federal Election Commission.

      There is the possibility that she used her contacts there to create some trouble for the conservative organizations applying for non-profit status.

      There is also the problem known about the “True the Vote” organization that was investigated by the FBI,ATF and OSHA. Those agencies did not originate an investigation without someone making a request. That request was probably issued by the DOJ or the White House Council after Learner contacted them.
