Title: Lois Lerner: "Need to be Cautious about what we Say in Emails"
Post by: jgiffin on July 09, 2014, 11:52:17 PM (

The ex-IRS official whose emails mysteriously disappeared amid a congressional investigation into the Tea Party targeting scandal cautioned her own staff about "what we say in emails" during an internal discussion last year, according to emails obtained by Fox News.


On April 9, 2013, Lerner, the director of Exempt Organization at the IRS, sent an email to IT employee Maria Hooke, asking about the OCS and whether Congress could access those messages.  "I was cautioning folks about email and how we have had several occasions where Congress has 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," Lerner wrote.

She forwarded a question about whether the chat system conversations were also searchable. Hooke responded that the messages "are not set to automatically save" but anyone could "copy and save the contents" to an email or file. She recommended that the agency treat these conversations "as if it could/is being saved [somewhere], as it is possible for either party of the conversation to retain the information and have it turn up as part of the electronic search." Lerner replied: "Perfect."

I'm not bothering to comment. It is what it is. If you don't see it, well, that's on you, bro.
