    You can talk about Lerner and the IRS all you want Grim, I really couldn't care less.

    You'd have a point if it was said or written and then was destroyed or hidden. And then you have to prove it's existence.
    If proven by corroborated testimony, the instruction is obstruction.

    Depends on the instruction. It's a stretch to say that it's obstruction because you should be careful in what you put in your emails.

    The instruction conveyed in #36 would seem to qualify.

    No he wasn't railroaded at all.

    Of course you don't because it is your side you are defending. If this was going on under the GOP you would be having a fit. People like you who look at everything thru their partisan , whether right or left, glasses are why things are so screwed up.

    I inferred that #36 referenced the OP quote. That qualifies at least as contrary to federal guidelines, and obstruction of Congress if there was underlying wrongdoing.
