Lois Lernerís Lost Emails: Questions for the IRS
Sharyl Atkisson ^ | 6-14-14 | Sharyl Atkisson

Posted on 06/14/2014 7:33:15 PM PDT by FlJoePa

The news came late in the day on Friday the 13th.

According to the House Ways and Means Committee, the IRS reports having “lost” former IRS manager Lois Lerner’s emails to and from other IRS employees sent between January of 2009 and April of 2011 due to a ‘computer crash.’

In light of the disclosure, these are some of the logical requests that should be made of the IRS:

The Committee had requested the Lerner emails as part of its investigation into to the targeting of conservative non-profits by the IRS. The Obama administration has denied any corruption or intentional wrongdoing. Lerner took the Fifth when asked to testify to Congress. The House of Representatives subsequently held her in contempt. The lost materials are said to include any communications that may have occurred between Lerner and outside agencies or groups such as the White House, the Treasury Department, the Department of Justice, the Federal Elections Commission and the offices of Democrats.

House and Ways Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) says that along with providing news of the emails that have been lost, the IRS suggested in the same letter to Congress that it end its investigation.

The late disclosure of the lost emails may be reason to disregard the suggestion.

I’m sorry- I don’t even believe in the possibility of this loss happening. But even if the emails were deliberately deleted, they can be retrieved from NSA.

Doesn't that sort of intimidation to a sitting Congressman break some law somewhere. Good grief, they can nail us for a late library book but these people can send Tony to sleep with the fishes and no one blinks.

Great post, thank you. As long as Bonehead Boehner is Speaker, do you really think anything will be done? I see Dingy Harry “corrupt” Reid has not been heard from for a while. His brainless rants against the Koch brothers have backlashed. Don't hold your breath.

Crash, my ass. They’re doing backups of backups in real time. That’s why God created RAID arrays. This has just descended into criminal farce, all of it.

Nope: “Questions for the NSA.”

Whatever the IRS “loses” is stored, FOREVER, in the files of the NSA.

After all, the NSA has searchable recordings of all emails by EVERYBODY, so that NOTHING can ever be “lost.”

Yes. I agree. I wanted to just link her website, but there are a few people here that make it their day’s work to rip on someone that posts something excerpted when it doesn’t technically have to be.

I think you know who you are.
