A newly released email from former IRS employee Lois G. Lerner, sent just as the tea party targeting scandal was erupting, warned colleagues to be cautious about what information they put in emails because it could be turned over to Congress.
I was cautioning folks about email and how we have had several occasions where Congress ask 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, Ms. Lerner wrote in an April 9, 2013, message.

The message came less than two weeks after the IRSs internal auditor shared a draft report with the agency accusing it of targeting tea party and conservative groups. A month after the email, Ms. Lerner would plant a question at a conference to reveal the scandal, just before the inspector generals report was made public.
The email was turned over to the House oversight committee last week, more than a year after lawmakers sought it as part of their investigation into the IRS targeting.
Republicans said the email shows Ms. Lerner was aware Congress was probing the agency and that she was preparing to intentionally hide agency discussions from lawmakers.
Ms. Lerners emails have become a major scandal in and of themselves after the IRS revealed that her computer hard drive crashed in 2011, causing the agency to lose thousands of her messages.

IRS policy was to print out emails that constituted official records, but its unclear whether that ever happened.................The law does not apply to Obama's people.
Please, dear heavens, where does this hag live? Can we picket her house, can we? can we?
It needs to happen, she must be isolated and shamed!
NO ... she needs to be waterboarded and forced to give up the commander of the operation ... the chief commander ...
There is no shame in them. You would be wasting your time.
DRAG in EVERYONE she sent the message to!!!! EVERYONE!!!!
“There is no shame in them.”
The only thing they care about is the revolution and when the revolution is furthered, by whatever means, there is no shame.
someone ask questions
Hope not. Don’t “go off the radar” like Hastings.
Usually that is the case. But God has ways of getting a person’s attention.
Never, ever give up.
Keep praying that people with information come to repentance and bring forward what they know. We’re told to pray, and God honors our prayers far beyond what we deserve Him to do. Seek, and ye shall find, ask and it will be given to you, knock and the door will be opened to you. Sometimes it seems like the task is too great, but the Lord turned a man from persecuting His Church, to being an apostle in that Church. We need to keep on praying and trusting.
