Lawyer in charge of producing Lois Lerner’s IRS emails now in charge of producing Hillary Clinton’s
The Hillary Clinton email story continues to get more disturbing. This latest development certainly explains quite a bit of things.
Catherine Duval, the lawyer who was previously in charge of producing Lois Lerner’s IRS emails, is now overseeing the State Department’s release of Hillary Clinton’s emails and Libya documents to the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
“The person in charge of document production at two different places on two different scandals has not been completely straightforward with us.
"She was at the IRS when there was a preservation order and subpoena — and documents were destroyed. She is now at the State Department, where we were supposed to get [certain] information, and we know that some of the emails were not given," Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said.
“Who is Kate Duval — because I think I’ve heard that name before.
"I know where she is now: She’s at the Department of State in charge of their email productions," Benghazi Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said.
The State Department defended Duval's work.
“Kate Duval is a professional of the finest kind. She continues to do exactly what the Secretary has asked this Department to do — cooperate fully with the Select Committee.
"No one at the Department should, in addition to this burden, have her integrity or her excellent work ethic impugned,” the State Department said in a statement.
Gowdy: “I want to ask you about another name. Have you ever heard of the name Kate Duval?”
Camus: “Yes sir.”
Gowdy: “Who is Kate Duval? Because I think I’ve heard that name before too."
Camus: “Kate Duval is the chief counsel representative, the IRS’ counselor concerning the production issues to Congress.
“She was a lawyer in charge of making sure the counsel made production to Congress.” (The Senate Finance Committee also lists Kate Duval in its timeline of IRS communications with Congress.)
Gowdy: “So she’s in charge of making sure that emails and other matters get produced.”
Camus: "Yes sir.”
Gowdy: “Is she still with the IRS?”
Camus: “She is not, I don’t recall the date that she left, but she’s no longer.”
Gowdy: “Do you know where she is now?”
Camus: “I can get that information for you.”
Gowdy: “No, I know where she is now. She’s at the Department of State, in charge of their email productions. Wow.”
