ikole Lerner Lois Barre Catherine Landes Scott Amato Amy Subject: UPDATE -FW: Hearing just spoke with Ayo. told that DOJ said the IRS does the initial investigations into violations IRC section 7206 (fraud and false statements) and DOJ prosecutes IRS referrals. DOJ said they have not gotten any referrals from the IRS.

The Subcommittee interested IRS witness testify on: -the process investigation before case turned over DOJ -how determination made -how different elements the offense are interpreted under IRC section 7206 
Please let know your thoughts. 
Thanks, Suzie

Ayo, remember meeting with you 501(c)(4 last July and hope you are well too. 
Regarding the hearing, this very short notice and not sure that can properly prepare witness time and clear testimony. will need check with the subject matter experts and get back you. 
What would most helpful you can tell specifically what the Subcommittee wants the IRS address, cannot comment any specific cases/taxpayers. Are there questions that DOJ cannot answer that you want the IRS answer instead? 
Feel free call directly 927 -6922 you would like discuss over the phone. 
Thank you, Suzie
