Convenient: IRS Has ‘Lost’ Two Years of Lois Lerner’s Emails


According to the House Ways and Means Committee, the IRS has “lost” two years of emails belonging to former head of tax exempt organizations Lois Lerner. The IRS doesn’t have a record of her emails to outside groups or government agencies from January 2009 through April 2011, conveniently encompassing some of the same time when tea party groups were being targeted for extra scrutiny and possible criminal prosecution. The IRS says the loss of emails is due to a “computer crash” and claims emails from or to Lerner from the White House, Democratic members of Congress, the Treasury Department and Department of Justice cannot be located. They do however have emails belonging to Lerner that she sent to other IRS employees.

“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,” Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp said in a statement. “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.”

    This current layer of incompetence/lies is really to be expected. To what ends will they go to cover up their corruption–herein lies the Obama transparency, its blatant, in-your-face corruption! After working in DHHS 34 yrs and just retiring, I will confirm the corruption, I lived with it all those years, worst during Clinton and Obama terms. Glad I was able to leave, the last 5 years were awful, obvious fraud for which nothing was ever done, and the trickle-down, care-less attitude was very obvious. After working in fed govt knowing it is corrupt I will never trust any agency of the federal govt as long as it remains way too large. There are too many scumbags working in govt, even those with MD & PhD degrees, for if they have the mindset to steal or control, they can and do.

    Lerner should do some serious time, as well as the entire IRS group, that supposedly lost the emails. Typical Obama style Chicago politics. If you cannot find the bodies, there is no murder.

    I CAN SEE BY THE POST ON THIS LINK THAT WE THE PEOPLE CAN SEE WHAT IS WRONG WITH OUR GOVERMENT, AND OUR MEDIA. WE HAVW BEEN LIED TOO TIME AFTER TIME, BUT THIS ACY OF MS. LERNER IS JUST BLANTED, AND SHOULD BE THE LAST STRAW. SHE SHOULD BE PICKED UP AND ARRESTED AND BE PUT ON TRIAL.

    Turn the search over to a Private firm… they will find the missing emails in less than a week… so many people in the IRS belong PRISON because of what they have done….

  • Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

    Stupidity nothing but stupidity by the right wing. There is a huge void in thios investigation and innuendo and false claims will not fill the empty sack.

    1. CountryBoy says:

      CORRUPTION nothing but unadulterated CORRUPTION coming from this administration….. spying , wiretapping ….. just about any form of CORRUPTION that you can think of…THIS administration has done it…

      1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

        Yall got nothing but some verbiage. Your representatives keep promising to deliver and they fail to do so repeatedly. You can yell corruption on every street corner and I can show you more right wing corruption than you can argue because I have facts Issa and you have thoughts ideas and nearly zero proof.

          Stop making this a POLITICAL issue. This is a RIGHT and WRONG issue. Both parties are often guilty of corruption. However, this Administration sets a new standard for unadulterated, in-your-face CORRUPTION.

          1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            First of all you scream do not make it political then you go into a scream about the left. You are totally bereft of a single fact. You show nothing but childish emotion and wish to have others see it your way? NOTHING AT ALL HAS BEEN PROVEN IN ANY WAY ASSHAT! Until you have something you have not one thing so you go into a tail spin trying to make this something it is not. No proof get it cold hard reality not your dumb ass bias and bigotry compounded by the stupidity of those who are investigating the issue to begin with. Their goal was and is to enflame the gullible and with you they have succeeded.

          2. McCloud says:

            First, WHERE did I say anything about the issue being “left”. FYI, I supported this Admin when it started. However, I am now to the point where I REALIZE what is going on. TOTAL INCOMPETENCE Looks like you should step away from the shrooms and LSD stockpile you have laying around…(if you want to start name calling and being an uneducated “asshat”–so be it…you’ll be up past your bedtime with me) and begin having a serious discussion instead of blasting this idea of “NOTHING HAS BEEN PROVEN” talking points…. Contrary to your small, irrelevant mental capabilities….PROOF requires investigation…. 2 + X = 4. Any ASSHAT like yourself…SHOULD be able to solve to X to PROVE that it is 2…not to say you actually can, but you SHOULD be able to. As for the “stupidity”, “bias” comments…you are the one going into a “tailspin”. Control yourself before someone takes that responsibility from you….or that could be your objective. Regardless, you obviously are incapable of having a serious discussion about anything other than ranting and raving and calling names, which is always associated with uneducated and small-minded individuals and even more associated with someone on the “take” that is worried that they may lose a check or some social welfare benefits.

            I seldom waste much time on idiots that can’t even comprehend what they posted and who think that if they say they are not biased and massively bigoted then they are not. Your complete lack of originality aside your ignorance and complete inability to present facts makes you a total fool and fools get barely a second look unless Iam bored then I might toy with your dumbness for a bit but not as a challenge in a game of wits as you apparently have nothing in that department.

          4. defiant1 says:

            The bigot here is you Ray………give it a rest please.

          5. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            Defiant how about you shut up? That would be very nice since you truly have nothing in the way of facts to contribute either. Your opinion of me has no influence whatsoever on me or apparently no one else either

          6. defiant1 says:

            Grow up Raymond, you are now making a complete fool of yourself……………….where are your facts mister?

        2. defiant1 says:

          Get a grip of yourself Raymond, your defense of this corrupt Obama govt is over the top and actually sounds rather ridiculously funny. Calm yourself down before you give yourself a stroke!

  • edgineer says:

    Whatever they are hiding it could bring the entire Democratic Party down.

  • Noah Rosenblum says:

    Lies, nothing but consistent lies by the Obama administration.
    They have tons of backups for all the emails.

    1. CTH says:

      Not just lies and liars, damn lies and damn liars. They think they can manipulate us but I have news for them, it will not work on all of us

        Sadly, most people don’t vote, those who do, a majority of them vote not for a better candidate (forget cause), but against one.
        People are not really interested in issues, they just want to go home and watch America Got Talent, and more of them vote for that than during elections.
        Not long ago, people got so angry when Ford pardoned Nixon, they voted against him by voting for some unknown peanut farmer with an equally matching peanut brain, “Jimmy Carter. Later on voters got fed up with the Republicans, and voted against Bush Sr. by voting for another unknown governor from Arkansas, never mind that he was already entangled in some shady “White Water” real estate deals.
        And the latest is yet another disaster of a candidate “Obama”; people voted not for him but against G. W. Bush, even thou he wasn’t running. Hopefully Hillary decides to run, that’s when most people will vote against her. The US is not ready for a woman candidate, as liberated as we like to think, we aren’t. Case in point, we have a Bolshevik mayor in NYC
