30,000 Missing Emails From IRS' Lerner Recovered

Naturally, this breaking news was released on a Friday evening...between the 'Executive Amnesty' proclamation and the Ferguson Grand Jury verdict.
Perhaps a 'Smoking Gun' will finally be uncovered.
And they said these were lost forever:



Up to 30,000 missing emails sent by former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner have been recovered by the IRS inspector general, five months after they were deemed lost forever.

The U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed congressional staffers from several committees on Friday that the emails were found among hundreds of “disaster recovery tapes” that were used to back up the IRS email system.

“They just said it took them several weeks and some forensic effort to get these emails off these tapes,” a congressional aide told the Washington Examiner.

Committees in the House and Senate are seeking the emails, which they believe could show Lerner was working in concert with Obama administration officials to target conservative and Tea Party groups seeking tax-exempt status before the 2012 presidential election.




The missing emails extend from 2009 to 2011, a period when Lerner headed the IRS’s exempt-organizations division. The emails were lost when Lerner’s computer crashed, IRS officials said earlier this year.

In June, IRS Administrator John Koskinen told Congress the emails were probably lost for good because the disaster recovery tape holds onto the data for only six months. He said even if the IRS had sought the emails within the six-month period, it would have been a complicated and difficult process to produce them from the tapes.

The IRS also lost the emails of several other employees who worked under Lerner during that period.

Lerner, who retired from the IRS, has refused to be questioned by Congress.

She provided a statement at a March hearing, but then clammed up, following the advice of her lawyer to avoid self-incrimination.

The House, led by Republicans, voted in May to hold Lerner in contempt of Congress.

Congressional aides said officials from the inspector general’s office said it could take weeks to get the recovered emails off the tape before sending them to lawmakers in Capitol Hill.

In all, investigators from the inspector general’s office combed through 744 disaster recovery tapes. They are not finished looking.

There are 250 million emails ion the tapes that will be reviewed. Officials said it is likely they will find missing emails from other IRS officials who worked under Lerner and who said they suffered computer crashes.

Investigators said the emails could include some overlapping information because it is not clear how many of them are duplicates or were already produced by Lerner to the congressional committees.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee he chairs will be one of the committees that will examine the emails.

“Though it is unclear whether TIGTA has found all of the missing Lois Lerner e-mails, there may be significant information in this discovery,” Issa told the Examiner. “The Oversight Committee will be looking for information about her mindset and who she was communicating with outside the IRS during a critical period of time when the IRS was targeting conservative groups. This discovery also underscores the lack of cooperation Congress has received from the IRS. The agency first failed to disclose the loss to Congress and then tried to declare Lerner’s e-mails gone and lost forever. Once again it appears the IRS hasn’t been straight with Congress and the American people.”

30,000 emails over 2 years?

That's 41 per Day.

Is it just me or is that just too much?

Yeah, they just found these. Plenty of time to have gone through and edited anything they don't want seen. No way they would turn these over if there's any damning evidence. Unless they've decided to throw Lerner under the bus as a distraction, this won't go anywhere. Could be they were saving her just for a time like this, when the President has made an unpopular move.

Perhaps they knew that with the Senate coming under Republican control, they had better just play ball and quit covering up.

How convenient that the emails were recovered AFTER the elections.

Well we knew that from our own discussions.

Congress will have a field day next year.

Lois "the Innocent" will swing. Her status as "5th Baroness of Shillington" will be revoked.

So will all the other liars that "testified".

Anything on tape has to be de-archived onto a disk drive. They do have the opportunities to pick out the relevant emails, and unfortunately, the judge won't be allowed access to the original tape.

41 emails a day would be emails that are both sent and received. In a corporate/public sector environment you have a continuous blizzard of emails - notifications of meetings, notifications of your RSVP to those notifications of those meetings, notifications that others have RSVP'ed to your notification of a meeting, minutes, policy updates, questions from field staff, IT department service shutdown warnings.

Assuming all the emails are provided intact, the investigators will have to sift through all that to find the relevant ones if there are any.

They KNOW that these 'disaster recovery tapes' will NOW be also independently analysed by congress, since the Republicans have both houses.
I think that any 'omitted' emails by the U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration would ultimately be discovered.

When you are involved in a Conspiracy to commit Election Fraud.

41 emails a day sounds about right.

I imagine stealing a Presidential Election is hard work.

Wow who would have thought.

Well EVERYONE. The average slob backs up his stuff, it was absurd to say they "lost them forever". Insulting really.

I hope they nail her ass to the wall.

Liar.

It takes a lot of time to review and edit and/or delete potentially troublesome e-mails out of that many.

41 emails is really really low. I receive and send about 10-30 emails a day and I am not I charge of anything.

I'm surprised it's not more...I work in printing and it is not uncommon to receive 100-150 emails a day. I send between 60-80 a day. Over 100 during the holiday seasons. Granted not all emails are books. One sentence responses are very common.
