Toured all over a series of controversial emails which seems to hit double linked several those its changes made public selling embattled IRS figure -- Lerner.
A -- to sender and receiver of a lot of these inter agency emails emails involving.
The tax exempt status of my next -- group nick Ryan is missing American future fund dot -- Well obviously you were very popular fellow -- a couple of government agencies potentially what you think was drawing their attention.
Well you know I think the common thread if you take -- and initial targeting they came out a few months ago.
And involve lowest -- and IRS in these Tea Party groups.
And now you fast forward to what has come out now about the American future fund which dates back to 2008.
But again involves slowest learner I think what it does indicate is that there's at least one rogue actor at the IRS that's behaved in that.

Interagency emails I'm told are not a news we got this statement that they -- -- and I quote here.
Lerner the FDC attorney recognize the IRS obligation to protect taxpayer information.
And that neither person -- the IRS to provide the FCC with anything other than publicly available information by the way that does not.
-- me at least does -- com you because whether it was publicly available or not these are two agencies talking about.
That just the same.
Now it's it's very troubling and -- actually doesn't totally jive with the facts either because you have emails that go back and forth.
Between the Federal Election Commission lawyers and -- Lerner who is at -- asked.
Discussing the American future funds tax information.
In fact discussing it before information was even publicly available and the and that pattern again is incredibly troubling and doesn't.

Feels that that's a phony scandal that's a phony situation is something -- -- take very seriously and this is a very serious situation and especially when it.
Whether publicly available information or not it's inter agency uses Davidson with one another.
Then it gets to be a little more than curious.
-- and now I mean you know -- it almost looks like there's collusion between the Federal Election Commission IRS in this particular instance.
And -- makes you wonder about other you know agencies within the federal government how they operate with IRS.
When you know this is obviously a political matter but obviously an IRS deals with with -- more than nonprofits and political committees that deal with a number of businesses which.
You know those situations would be equally as troubling.
I'm all right and thank you very much as -- -- -- folks at home how weird that is.
But the IRS is contacting any of the Federal Election Commission.
