    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    How do you read that and think there is nothing to be suspicious of?

    Why would she specifically mention Congress unless she intended to hide something from them?

    Why is she worried about Congress seeing something they wrote?

    Aren't they on the same side, IRS and Congress?

    LMMFAO Why would any organization pay anybody to post their information on a website? You should be angry at the Washington Times for giving you false information.

    That doesn't make obstruction legal.

    Didn't you ever take civics in school? The IRS is part of the executive and Congress is part of the legislative branch of the government.

    If not obstruction of justice, then certainly something criminal. Destroying evidence during an ongoing congressional investigation can't possibly be legal. That's without a shadow of a doubt.

    I don't think that it's possible to have insight into Lerner's intent on this without direct knowledge, as she's certainly clammed up since she took the 5th.

    The mere fact that there appears to be willful information 'hiding' in case congress investigates is already very suspicious.
    Especially so considering the power that the IRS have over the population.

    Why are they (Lerner and her buddies) worried about a congressional investigation unless they've been doing something wrong or illegal that congress would object to?

    Since it's a government agency, and this is a government "government of the people, by the people, for the people" shouldn't any non-personal and non-private IRS information be available for public inspection?

    I'd have to agree Mason. It's very suspicious, as if they knew they were guilty of something and wanted to try and hide it. Clearly a case and cause for digging deeper and investigating further.

    What is that supposed to mean? Are the three branches enemies of each other?

    IRS above every other department is supposed to be impartial and non-partisan, but that doesn't seem to be the way the employees think of it, or you for that matter.
