    That instruction is contrary to federal guidelines for dealing with Congress.

    It makes it "not obstruction" but a prudent attempt to protect the truth.

    That's why we have the Fifth Amendment. Stuff can be distorted and the Republicans are experts at doing it.

    Because there is Congressional oversight into their admitted targeting of Conservative groups, they now need to be cautious about what they say in Emails.

    Lol !! That doesn't NEED to be distorted .

    It's only criminal and a lie when Republicans do it. Dems are clean as the driven snow.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    " Prudence" for what reason ?

    I realize your loyalty to a corrupted ideology may force you to be a bit dishonest and subjective, but I'm not limited to discussing or understanding this issue in such a general manner.

    Why was her demand for such " prudence" relevant to her admitted targeting of Conservative groups ?

    We can be specific here. Or at least I can.

    As if Democrats aren't experts at distorting the same sort of things.

    Tell me, have you heard about the alleged 'Republican War on Women?' That's an out right distortion. How about 'The Hobby Lobby decision will deny women reproductive healthcare'? (It doesn't so that's an out right lie).

    Yeah, so kettle meet pot.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels
