We had our gut feelings of yes they did, but no one had as of yet, come out in a committee hearing to confirm it.
We got that today. Straight from the horses mouth to all of our ears.
Could you please elaborate on that?
It's funny how people seem to keep making vague claims with no details.
National Archives boss: IRS ‘did not follow the law’ on lost Lerner emails
The top U.S. official in charge of archiving federal records testified Tuesday that the IRS ran afoul of the law by neglecting to tell his office that a trove of emails from the woman at the center of the targeting scandal disappeared after an apparent hard drive crash.
Archivist of the U.S. David Ferriero, speaking before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, made clear that federal agencies are supposed to report whenever their records are destroyed or even accidentally deleted. But he said that after emails from embattled IRS official Lois Lerner vanished after a computer failure in 2011, nobody told the National Archives.
"They did not follow the law," Ferriero said.

Here is a question I want asked.
To the IRS.
With a budget of $12.8 BILLION dollars why the hell are they still using 'tape backups'.
That has a severe lack of that 'backup' part.
