Newly obtained documents raise the question of whether Elizabeth Warren, a top aide to President Obama and liberal darling, lied to Congress in downplaying her role in ongoing settlement negotiations over a major legal dispute.
Warren, who has said she is advising the President on establishing the nascent Consumer Financial Protection Bureau [CFPB] a new federal agency created by the Dodd-Frank financial reform law that does not obtain any legal authority until July 21 is actually leading the organization as if it already existed, documents show.
Her aggressive push of CFPBs view, as one email puts it, is important because as recently as May 24 Warren downplayed her role, saying three times she was only providing advice when asked.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I’d be surprised if anyone connected to this president had ever told the truth, at this point.
HP & DU are going to go into total meltdwn if she is not picked.
What are they all so upset about?
Isn’t the Ozombie admin doing the same thing with DeathCare?
Yes, they are.
This is just a distraction.
Did she speak to Congress?
Elizabeth Warren, another Obama End Run
Why does that picture bring Anthony Weiner to mind?
With only the feckless repugnicans holding them to account, they can lie all they want.
They think this women is the “Mother Teresa” of liberalism
To them getting her confirmed by the Senate is an act of sacrilege
Laws and rules mean nothing to this bunch.
You are racist if you object.
If she wasn’t a skilled liar she wouldn’t meet the job requirments.
These people are socialists. The end justifies the means. Of course she’s going to lie if it furthers the socialist agenda and helps tank this country and wipes out the middle class.
Remember you can’t have a middle class. Its a 5% inner party group of elite govt and business folks, and 95% proles that can’t fight back. This is how they ‘equalize outcomes’ and that ‘everyone’ (read: proles) gets treated the same. If they aren’t treated the same history gets rewritten and everyone is treated the same.
I would suspect that there’s an unwritten “memo of understanding” among most of out Federal employees at this point...that the “truth” spoken to the boss is something quite different from what really transpired.
However, the House policy of holding this woman up almost makes his tenure worthwhile just in itself IMO.
