Lois Lerner Was Hoping They Wouldn’t Find This Email, But Investigators Just Did

U.S. House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa released the latest bombshell finding from his investigation into the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups.

Despite the fact that the agency claims two years’ worth of former official Lois Lerner’s emails were lost in a 2011 hard drive crash, a number of troubling correspondences have nevertheless found their way to congressional investigators. The latest seems to indicate that Lerner realized there was a distinct possibility her online communications could be used against her and sought to find a way to curtail that risk.

Oddly enough, her concern over expressing too much in an email did not prevent her from expressing herself through that very medium.

In the conversation, she expressed concern over “several occasions where Congress has asked for emails and there has been an electronic search for responsive emails,” prompting her to suggest “we need to be cautious about what we say in emails.”

Recent reports also reveal that Lerner’s attorney, William Taylor II, sought to clarify his earlier statement that his client did not print official IRS records. He confirmed that she did, in compliance with the Federal Records Act, print a number of emails from the period during which such communications were supposedly lost.

Along with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, Taylor previously maintained that Lerner did not know this was a requirement and failed to create such hard copies of her emails.

“During her tenure as Director of Exempt Organizations,” Taylor said in a statement Wednesday, “she did print out some emails, although not every one of the thousands she sent and received.”

According to a Wall Street Journal report, email correspondences also indicate that IRS officials routinely engaged in instant messaging, the contents of which were not maintained in any retrievable format.

  1. She should be spending some serious time in jail with no chance of parole or a pardon

  2. G. Braud says:

    There are always means of retrieving e-mails/correspondence. Companies always "back up" files, one back up tape kept on premises and at least one other stored in another location. Common sense would indicate that there is no way that the government would not take such precautions. Of course, I've previously stated, very few of our government officials have any common sense.

  3. Jail time!
    Why does this woman want to hide information from the American People?
    When it becomes evident that there is/was an effort for information to be hidden, destroyed,
    or covered, then we have evidence of intent to circumvent or violate the law.

      HDA she is trying to protect Sambo or Jarrett because she knows they will protect her from going to jail.

  4. mutantone says:

    So she knew the laws and still violated them time to go to jail preferably one with all the illegal aliens

  5. C Adkins says:

    We pay her salary, she is accountable to the American Taxpayers and we expect the truth! So, send her to jail, directly to jail do not collect her salary, her pension or any bonus!!!! Say goodbye to all!

  6. Edwardkoziol says:

    The next time she goes before the comittee Pignose should be wearing a orange jumpsuit.This creep is as crooked as Juan Williams the Obutthole ass kisser.

  7. is she really that stupid..to put that on an email too?

  8. Lois Waggoner says:

    Congress doesn't have the guts to arrest Lois Lerner. And Congress doesn't have the guts to impeach Obama. Conservative Americans are fed up with the Fed Gov't. They won't secure the boarders. they won't cut back spending to control the debt. Obama is purposely ruining the Country and we all know that!!
