LOL seems the IRS Commish John Koskinen is saying they have in fact found the "missing" backup tapes that might have some Lois Lerner emails.

But naturally, Koskinen doesn't know how anybody found them ?


And of course he says things on those *Backup* tapes may not be "recoverable"


Well what exactly are *Backup Tapes* for then John ?


Previous testimonies from IRS people have claimed no such tapes existed.

Maybe somebody found some and blew a whistle or two ?

Now the music is playing a different song isn't it.

Jittery Jealousy reigns supreme.




The head of the IRS confirmed Wednesday that investigators looking into missing emails from ex-agency official Lois Lerner have found and are reviewing "backup tapes" -- despite earlier IRS claims that the tapes had been recycled.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, testifying before a House oversight subcommittee, stressed that he does not know "how they found them" or "whether there's anything on them or not." But he said the inspector general's office advised him the investigators are reviewing tapes to see if they contain any "recoverable" material.

The revelation is significant because the IRS claimed, when the agency first told Congress about the missing emails, that backup tapes "no longer exist because they have been recycled."

It's the stupidest thing I ever heard that email were lost. What? Did they hire their own coders and store communications on their own server? Never bothered to look into it because its obvious stupid. The morons are likely using MS Exchange or Gmail, the emails were missing........right.

They are playing "hokey pokey" with us....

I can barely contain my enthusiasm at what will happen next.

*que radio voice*

Will Lois be proven innocent with this possible find?

Will the IRS turn over the backups before Bigfoot can eat them?

Will this mean a new standard will be set to prevent this from happening again?

Will backups of the backups of the backups come to light in the next decade?

Stay tuned for the latest BS sitcom...

They been playing 'Now you see it now you don't' ! ! !

They really do need to get their story straight, because as it stands now ?

They look severely INEPT.

And that's the kind of people I don't want near my taxes, or my healthcare.

Since the IRS has been retasked for ACA 'enforcement'.

More BS being spewed to calm the public until they can make the issue just go away like every other "investigation".
I truly do not know why they don't just get the "backups" from the NSA.

Rock and a hard place.

If they stick to the :emails were lost" nonsense they come off as a bunch of buffoons who don't know jack.
If they actually produce the emails they risk coming off as a bunch of corrupt partisan sadists.

In short, government doesnt want to get caught being government.

The records were 'lost' long enough to be tampered with. I wonder how much these records will differ from what the NSA has collected? I wonder if anyone will make the NSA turn their records over to compare the two. They should.

Yup.

"Tampering" is going to be a key issue.

Unless somebody has "provided" unedited backups by way of ongoing investigations.

Something turned the guy around suddenly.

I'm not so convinced he is doing it out of the goodness of his heart or for the greater good.

First we have this:


Whitman states that he spent about ten minutes looking through the emails before notifying the office of his Division, Terry Millholand, that he had located the previously “lost” emails of Lois Lerner.

Within twenty minutes personal aids of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen arrived at Whitman’s work area and took custody of the tapes.

“They thanked me profusely”, said Whitman. “They were emphatic that it was a great service I’d done for the organization by finding these files.
They told me that the Commissioner wanted to meet me and personally thank me for providing the information which would put all the scandal talk to rest. And that I should keep the discovery secret until the Commissioner announced it”



Like how they 'took custody' of the tapes and thanked him for putting 'the scandal to rest' --[a person would have to be gullible to believe that]



And then there was this afterwards.....how predictable *sigh*
[shame he didn't get some kind of pictures or something]


But Whitman didn’t meet Commissioner Koskinen. In fact he didn’t hear anything about the emails he’d found from anybody, for days.

“After four days I tried to contact Chief Mullholand’s office and was informed that he was unavailable”, stated Whitman. “I tried to call on the fifth day and the sixth, both with the same results.

I was finally told, by Mullholand’s secretary, that I had been mistaken, and that upon further review it had been determined that what I had found were not Lerner’s missing emails. I was then asked to stop calling.”


“It was obvious that I was being ignored and let known that I should just be quiet”

Yeah, that's what we thought, you were just 'mistaken'......silly boy


Just take them all down and be done with it already!!!!!

There is no "Jeffery Whitman" listed in the IRS' global address list. I prefer NOT to divulge how I know this...of course, I guess the IRS could have quickly removed his email address, but highly doubtful.

More lies from the Govt??????
Nah, can't be.


I say lets put them in charge of more crap.

Maybe in charge of holding the files for people's debt......I mean, they are surely going to loose that info.

Excellent point 100%.

This story must be one of the 39%.

But you might be focusing on the wrong news story.

See if you can catch the drift.
