Incriminating Lois Lerner Emails Conveniently “Lost” by IRS

Incriminating Lois Lerner Emails Conveniently “Lost” by IRS

Incriminating emails to and from Lois Lerner over a two-year period have conveniently disappeared, calling into question the cooperation by the IRS in the investigation of the agency.

[The] Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement regarding the Internal Revenue Service informing the Committee that they have lost Lois Lerner emails from a period of January 2009 – April 2011. Due to a supposed computer crash, the agency only has Lerner emails to and from other IRS employees during this time frame. The IRS claims it cannot produce emails written only to or from Lerner and outside agencies or groups, such as the White House, Treasury, Department of Justice, FEC, or Democrat offices.

“The fact that I am just learning about this, over a year into the investigation, is completely unacceptable and now calls into question the credibility of the IRS’s response to Congressional inquiries. There needs to be an immediate investigation and forensic audit by Department of Justice as well as the Inspector General.

Earlier testimony by the IRS commissioner in response to Rep. Jason Chaffetz indicated the emails had been appropriately archived. Who do you think is lying?
