Did Lois Lerner use her personal email account to conduct IRS business?

August 13, 2013

  It has been a rough couple of days for Lois Lerner. First she was caught on video from 2009 admitting that she was facing political pressure to correct what some people in the Federal government felt was an error by the Supreme Court in the Citizen’s United Case, which was just before the IRS began targeting conservative groups, and now she has been caught emailing official government documents to her personal email account.

  Needless to say, Darrell Issa is not happy and is demanding that Lerner turn over all personal documents related to this case:

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 Committee’s 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

  There is only one reason why, in my opinion, Lois Lerner would email herself official documents and that is to take the following correspondence off the grid where it would not be subjected to government oversight or FOIA requests.

  I think these last few days have taught us quite a bit about the reasons why Lois Lerner pleaded the fifth when she sat before the Congress under oath. She may be as conniving as we thought she was, but she is not nearly as cunning as she thought she was.

    Maybe it’s a good thing Lois Lerner pleaded the Fifth Amendment. It seems she has much more to hide than she first claimed. It makes me wonder how long it will be before she is required to fall on her own sword to protect the people from whom she was received her marching orders.

      She certainly seems to have quite a bit to hide and there is no doubt she will be the one taking the fall for the regime. She said she was facing political pressure, I want to know where that pressure was coming from.

      Larry, makes you wonder what promotion and increase in pay is waiting for her, doesn’t it? Seems to be how it works in this Administration.

        It is exactly how Obama operates, consider the promotions to be hush money.
