The IRS attorney who worked to turn over Lois Lerner’s emails to congressional investigators now has a new gig, this time at a federal agency steeped in its own email controversy.
Catherine Duval now works at the State Department where she is in charge of that agency’s email productions, House Oversight member Trey Gowdy revealed during a hearing last Thursday. Prior to that, Duval worked as chief legal adviser to IRS commissioner John Koskinen.
During a line of questioning at last week’s hearing, which was reported by CNS News, Gowdy asked Timothy Camus, the deputy inspector general for investigations for the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration about Duval.
“I want to ask you about another name. Have you ever heard of the name Kate Duval?” Gowdy asked.
Camus said that he had.
“Who is Kate Duval? Because I think I’ve heard that name before too,” said Gowdy.
“Kate Duval is the chief counsel representative, the IRS’ counselor concerning the production issues to Congress,” Camus said. “She was a lawyer in charge of making sure the counsel made production to Congress.”

When Chris Wallace asked Rove how we can, “stop the violence,” the long-time gun-rights advocate stated that we have made great strides as a nation in empathizing with the victims of these types of shootings, but the only way to guarantee they will stop is to “remove guns from society.”
WALLACE: How do we stop the violence?
ROVE: I wish I had an easy answer for that, but I don’t think there’s an easy answer
We saw an act of evil. Racist, bigoted evil, and to me the amazing thing is that it was met with grief and love. Think about how far we’ve come since 1963. The whole weight of the government throughout the South was to impede finding and holding and bringing to justice the men who perpetrated the [Birmingham] bombing.
And here, we saw an entire state, an entire community, an entire nation come together, grieving as one and united in the belief that this was an evil act, so we’ve come a long way.
Now maybe there’s some magic law that will keep us from having more of these. I mean basically the only way to guarantee that we will dramatically reduce acts of violence involving guns is to basically remove guns from society, and until somebody gets enough “oomph” to repeal the Second Amendment, that’s not going to happen.
