GOP: Lerner warned IRS employees to hide information from Congress
The Washington Times ^ | 9 Jul 2014 | Stephen Dinan

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 IRS’s 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 general’s 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. Lerner’s 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.

The head of the National Archives testified to Congress that the IRS likely broke federal records laws by not storing Ms. Lerner’s emails better.

IRS policy was to print out emails that constituted official records, but it’s unclear whether that ever happened.................The law does not apply to Obama's people.

“There is no shame in them.”

Absolutely.

The only thing they care about is the revolution and when the revolution is furthered, by whatever means, there is no shame.

IMHO

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.
