    Do you not see that as obstruction?

    What would Lerner want to hide from Congress?
    It's time to charge Lerner with a crine, put her ass in hancuffs and see what she jas to say, then.

    In other words "the way I see it". That's the problem. You can't make **** up and expect people to take you seriously. You need evidence.
    Evidence of harm would be a good start. Then you can explain how this helped the Democrats so much that they were all in on what would have been the stupidest misuse of IRS power imaginable. Little or no gains with a HUGE downside risk if discovered. You must be kidding right?

    Yes, because we know Congress is always going after people for using bad language in their emails. How pathetic.

    It's a matter of perspective, and with what has happened...

    Only the willingly blind could not see this as suspicious.

    The same could be said of the reverse. Hanging on to every word like you are on a search for some holy grail or smoking gun for the ridiculous conspiracy story you guys made up is not very becoming. It actually makes you look desperate...pathetically desperate.

    Yes, especially if the government is using the IRS to target the political opposition of the current administration, you certainly don't want to say where you got those orders in an email!

    You might want to take the 5th, or claim that, oops, all those emails were lost. All things that an honest outfit would have to do to cover their tracks, right? Duh!
