    Former IRS official Lois Lerner tried to block an IRS supervisor’s visit to the Cincinnati office that she oversaw during the period in which her division was targeting conservative groups.

    Lerner made clear that she didn’t want the official talking to employees involved in early congressional and inspector general probes into the “c4″ business, according to newly unearthed emails.

    As The Daily Caller extensively reported, Lerner and her underling Nikole Flax unveiled the new program of nonprofit scrutiny at a 2010 conference of government workers at Washington’s Grand Hyatt hotel. IRS officials obtained donor lists for a “secret research project” that was approved by then-IRS commissioner Steven T. Miller. Lerner provided confidential taxpayer information on a conservative group to senior White House adviser Jeanne Lambrew.
