Skip to comments.IRSís Lerner Used Personal E-mail to Conduct Official Business, Investigators Say
Posted on 08/13/2013 9:45:46 AM PDT by CivilWarBrewing
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner sent official documents from her government e-mail address to a personal account, according to House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa and his colleague, Ohio congressman Jim Jordan.
This raises some serious questions concerning your use of a non-official e-mail account to conduct official business, the GOP lawmakers wrote in a letter to Lerner demanding all documents from her non-official account for the period between January 2008 and the present. Additional documents related to the Committees investigation may exist in these non-official accounts over which you have some control, and the lack of access to this information prevents the Committee from fully assessing your actions, they explained. Issa and Jordan are requesting that Lerner produce the documents by August 27.

I hope they continue to pile on. With the prospect of life in prison and forfeiture of all assets, ms. Lerner may just decide to spill the beans.
“Lerner may just decide to spill the beans.”
She (and others of her ilk) won’t spill the beans unless (until?) there’s a federal indictment against her in the works. Let’s hope federal prosecutors and FBI agents aren’t dismissing this all as just a so-called political question with which they are loathe to involve themselves.
I’m sure the NSA has access to her other e-mail account. Let’s just go see what she used it for.
Oh, wait. She is in the ruling class. That’s a privacy issue. Sorry. Never mind.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
MAKE A PLEA DEAL LERNER!!!
SPILL YOUR GUTS and get a good deal while the gettin’s good.
And what would happen if some co/biz tried to get around e-mail/’net traffic compliance that the Fed requires? Yeah, thought so.
Boy, no wonder we have our (military) secrets stolen left and right....Not an I.T. head in the group to update their firewall to keep those sites off the network. Geez, how easy to bring in a virus/trojan than from an externally accessible e-mail?!
Ha, what else am I expecting from the D.C. crowd?!
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE. NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO LERNER OR ANY OTHER RAT. Issa has about as much clout as you and I do spending 2.00 at Starbucks. None!
If you're a Democrat, NO INVESTIGATION OR PROSECUTION is gonna EVER happen....we need to bring back Lynching, and we don't need Big Buck Attorney's and paid-for Judges Ruling on Technicalities and squashing any Evidence that is incriminating.
Bring Open Carry to ALL the States, and we can take care of these people CAUGHT IN THE ACT, saving Taxpayers BILLIONS in wasted non-productive whitewash-Trials.
that’s okay. the NSA has all of her personal emails. I’m sure they would be glad to turn them over.
I know. The rule of law pretty much is gone in this country, and it’s used to protect the thugs in power and target the opposition. It really seems like we are starting to live in a totalitarian regime.
Lois Lerner Leavanworth has a nice ring to it.
anonymous should hack her!
A phony e-mail account for a phony scandal?.................
There, fixed it.
Nixon was an amateur compare to this lot of rats.
What we have now are 3 classes..1) Ruling Class 2) Dependent Class 3) Enemy of the state
This arrogant bastard should be audited and then go to jail.
Clandestine communications from members of the most transparent administration, evah.
Better check former IRS Chief Shulman as well as the General Counsel for the IRS. Better start putting dem Senators on Impeachment Watch...
Issa is going to let this ride out a while longer before he brings Lerner back in. She’s in deep doo doo...
every picture of Lerner ,she has her nose in the air
Yeah, it’ll give more time for Lerner’s brakes to give out while she’s speeding down a twisty mountain road, or be found with 3 bullet holes in the back of her head while she has a pistol in one hand & a suicide note in the other!
Would you get on an airplane with her for a Klondike Bar?
The title should be:
Lerner attempts to conceal questionable or illegal official acts - indictment to follow
If she spills beans, she’ll assume room temperature.
Yeah, itll give more time for Lerners brakes to give out while shes speeding down a twisty mountain road, or be found with 3 bullet holes in the back of her head while she has a pistol in one hand & a suicide note in the other!
Who do you trust Lois? The violent left who will easily make you a martyr for the struggle or the GOP who want to prsoecute you?
She is protected.
I'm surprised Snowden didn't try that excuse.
Maybe the NSA is ‘Anonymous’? Yikes. Anonymous goes silent when it comes to attacking those they SHOULD attack. Like in this case.. Or, maybe they’re afraid of being Breitbarted?
Standard operating procedure in the regime.
A common thread in all of the Obama scandals is total stupidity on the part of the perps.
Using your personal e mail to communicate secretly out of the Governments official documentation and archiving system works great as long as you can keep it secret.
Once you get caught, however, it becomes your worst nightmare.
First off, it documents malfeasance on the parts of all parties who are working to circumvent the lawful process of communication.
Second, it is a crime to handle confidential IRS information in such a fashion.
Third, there are no protections or restrictions , such as the ability to assert executive privilege, on Congress's ability to investigate and subpoena personally transmitted confidential IRS information or communications, especially in light of (2) above.
This is a big screw up that is really going to hurt Lerner almost as much as her playing games on asserting the 5th Amendment
