I said I would provide all the emails. We are providing all the emails. The fact that three years ago, some of themnot all of them, but some of themwere not available, I never said I would provide you emails we didnt have, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told a Monday evening hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Frustrated Republicans and apologetic Democrats questioned Koskinen about Lois Lerners vanished emails for several hours, beginning with Committee Chair Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who asked Koskinen if he knew those critical emails were missing when he testified before Issas committee on March 26but said nothing at the time about problems cropping up.

Looks like I was way off with my “educated guess” of the number of PCs covered. Whoa, 3,000.
Curious that the first thing you hear about Koskinen is that he's a troubleshooter and turnaround specialist from the private sector, but the deeper you dig the more political hack positions he's had.
He was also at OMB under Clinton and in charge of the Y2K Commission. Later Deputy Mayor for DC. Brought in by Bush to run Freddy Mac after the meltdown, with most Republicans in the Senate opposed to his confirmation.
No tax administration experience. Headed US Soccer and funded at soccer stadium for Duke U (not as impressive as it sounds, though -- some high schools have more impressive fields). At Lucianne.com somebody called him "the master of the angelic smirk."
I try. Credit needs given where credit is due. You, I believe alone, had this one right.
