One email between a Treasury inspector involved in the investigation and Lerner from early 2013 show that the former IRS official tried to convince investigators that the actions of a Cincinnati division of the IRS only 'appeared to be politically motivated' but weren't.'I am willing to take the blame for having not provided sufficient direction initially, which may have resulted in front line staff doing things that appeared to be politically motivated,' she told Treasury's Troy Paterson in a January 31 email, 'but I am not on board that anything occurred here shows that the IRS was politically motivated in the actions taken.' Lerner opined in the email that Treasury investigators were being 'too narrow in their view and have decided that because of the language used in our earlier [Be On The Lookout List] regarding Tea Party, everything that followed was tainted.'She says the IRS already 'owned up' to the fact that the Cincinnati office was 'struggling' to determine which applications should be subject to additional reviews and had sent a team out to train them earlier that month.

However, 'they seem to be saying that reasonableness is overshadowed by the fact that the criteria look bad to folks on the outside, so there is no way we could cure the initial bad impression.''We understand why the criteria might raise questions,' she admitted but claimed that investigators could not provide her a 'clear definition of what they meant by targeting' and told her their investigation wasn't necessarily about political targeting.
