Lerner's Lawyer admits Lois Lerner did not print and save email records as required by law

Lois Lerner's lawyer claims Lerner didn't now she was required to print email records.  Add that to the things about Lois Lerner loosing over two years of email that are hard to believe.
Printing official emails — or not.Taylor said Lerner did not print out official records she may have sent over email because she didn't  know she had to.
The Federal Records Act requires agencies to back up all “business” correspondence — anything dealing with policy or operations, for instance. And while the IRS says it’s up to employees to print off hard copies of official emails and file them, Taylor said Lerner did not because she “did not think it was required.”National Archives, which oversees the law, and the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration are currently probing the lost emails and the backup policies. The Archivist has already said the IRS did not follow the law because it did not alert them to lost emails that could be important, which is required.
Preserving records is required by law...
