 Subject: RE: Hearing
Ayo, remember meeting with you 501(c)(4)s 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
