Lerner attorney: Convenient for GOP to demonize Lerner
By HADAS GOLD |

Lois Lerner's attorney pushed back on Sunday against Republicans investigating the former IRS executive, saying their efforts are nothing more than election year politics.

"This is election year politics, it's convenient to have a demon that they can create and point to," William Taylor III said on CNN's "State of the Union."

Taylor appeared on the show right after Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee who said Taylor has "outright lied" a number of times while defending the former head of the IRS tax-exempt division.

"I won't respond to that, except to say he's wrong," Taylor said.

Taylor asserted that Lerner did everything she could to save her computer information when it crashed in 2011, losing several years worth of emails.

"I get it's convenient to create suspicion, and actually the e-mails that are missing are way before the time in which Congressman Issa and his colleagues are suggesting that there was unfairness or anything like it at the IRS," Taylor said. "The truth is these e-mails pre-date most anything that's of any relevance to anybody, but you can see why it's convenient to say there's a computer crash and therefore there must be something nefarious going on."

Taylor also defended Lerner pleading the Fifth Amendment at committee hearings, saying there was no point in subjecting her to bullying by Issa's committee.

"There was no pretense that this would be a fair process. from the beginning, the Republican majority has screamed without any evidence about things that she did," Taylor said. "The only purpose of having her there would be to vilify."
