IRS Lied About ‘Missing’ Lerner Emails

emailIt turns out that what we knew all along (President Obama’s IRS was lying to us all along about Lois Lerner’s incriminating anti-Tea Party emails being gone forever) has now been admitted.

From ConservativeHQ:

Our friends at Judicial Watch have just announced the following startling developments in the IRS’ missing emails investigation. In a news release sent after the close of business on Monday, August 25, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton stated:

Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe.  The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search.  The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this back-up system

We obviously disagree that disclosing the emails as required would be onerous, and plan to raise this new development with Judge Sullivan.                

This is a jaw-dropping revelation.  The Obama administration had been lying to the American people about Lois Lerner’s missing emails. There are no “missing” Lois Lerner emails – nor missing emails of any of the other top IRS or other government officials whose emails seem to be disappearing at increasingly alarming rate. All the focus on missing hard drives has been a diversion. The Obama administration has known all along where the email records could be – but dishonestly withheld this information. You can bet we are going to ask the court for immediate assistance in cutting through this massive obstruction of justice.

Here is the second set of sworn declarations by IRS officials in response to Judge Emmet G. Sullivan’s investigation into the missing emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials. The declarations were provided after close of business on Friday, August 22.

Having been a daily computer user for over 20 years and having some 15 years experience in the IT industry, I knew from the git-go that all the garbage about hard drives spontaneously dying (on several people’s PCs) and no backups being available was complete and total bunk.

Now it seems persistence has paid off in finally obtaining the admission of what we knew all along.

There’s a big, big, BIG lesson here for Republicans.  It’s called: “Don’t be so gutless, and try sticking to your guns!” (My mother was right all along: can’t never could do anything.)

That’s how you win battles. It’s how you demonstrate leadership.
