Obamacare Official Telling Employees to Illegally Delete Emails


Typical of the sort of criminals that have come to power with this president, we now find an Obamacare official telling her underlings to be sure and delete all emails so that the American people never find out how bad Obamacare really is.

Investigative reporter par excellence Sharyl Attkisson uncovered the emails of Dept. of Health and Human Services official Marilyn Tavenner was doing her best to keep the truth deleted.

An email obtained by Congress shows the top official for Healthcare.gov at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services under the Department of Health and Human Services, Marilyn Tavenner, instructed the agency’s top spokesman to “Please delete this email.”

The instruction appears significant for several reasons: First, the email to be deleted included an exchange between key White House officials and CMS officials. Second, the email was dated October 5, 2013, five days into the disastrous launch of HealthCare.gov. Third, federal law requires federal officials to retain copies of —not delete— email exchanges. And fourth, the document to be deleted is covered under Congressional subpoena as well as longstanding Freedom of Information requests made by members of the media (including me).

In a letter today, House Energy and Commerce leaders asked Tavenner to explain why she asked her colleague to delete the email, and the letter questions whether there are other instances in which she instructed HHS staff to delete emails. The letter also asks for more details regarding Congressional subpoenaed documents, including Tavenner emails, that CMS recently said might be permanently lost; and it requests an explanation as to why redactions are made in some documents provided to Congress so far.

Once again we see a criminal member of this criminal president’s administration acting… well… like a criminal.
