2 Years of Lerner Emails Lost, Claims IRS
The IRS Claims that after promising all communications by Lerner that a supposed: ‘computer crash’ has rendered them irretrievable. Are we, the American public, supposed to really be that gullible? I, myself have had computer crashes, and called a Geek Squad or similar, and somehow, my data was retrieved. Now, I am not 100% sure on this, but I am pretty sure that a single mom’s budget for computer equipment &: repair: is: a little less than one of the governments largest divisions.
From this Press Release from Committee on Ways and Means:
“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.
“Just a short time ago, Commissioner Koskinen promised to produce all Lerner documents.: It appears now that was an empty promise.: Frankly, these are the critical years of the targeting of conservative groups that could explain who knew what when, and what, if any, coordination there was between agencies.: Instead, because of this loss of documents, we are conveniently left to believe that Lois Lerner acted alone.: This failure of the IRS requires the White House, which promised to get to the bottom of this, to do an Administration-wide search and production of any emails to or from Lois Lerner.: The Administration has repeatedly referred us back to the IRS for production of materials.: It is clear that is wholly insufficient when it comes to determining the full scope of the violation of taxpayer rights.”
Indeed, it is easier to ignore the rules to suit yourself. However, it is the right of the taxpayer who paid the salary of Ms. Lerner to demand answers and not be blown off by the liberal media. This data can surely be recovered by one of the most sophisticated nations in world. Why wait over a year after the investigation to ‘suddenly’ discover that these emails were ‘lost’ ? What does the IRS need to hide so badly? We all deserve answers. This is still America.
