Lies Exposed: DOJ Admits “Missing” IRS Emails DO Exist

In a stunning turn of events, Department of Justice attorneys for the IRS admitted that Lois Lerner’s emails DO exist on a backup server, but said they would be hard to find.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton broke the news today:

Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe.  The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search.  The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this back-up system.

We obviously disagree that disclosing the emails as required would be onerous, and plan to raise this new development with Judge Sullivan.

This is a jaw-dropping revelation.  The Obama administration had been lying to the American people about Lois Lerner’s missing emails. There are no “missing” Lois Lerner emails – nor missing emails of any of the other top IRS or other government officials whose emails seem to be disappearing at increasingly alarming rate. All the focus on missing hard drives has been a diversion. The Obama administration has known all along where the email records could be – but dishonestly withheld this information. You can bet we are going to ask the court for immediate assistance in cutting through this massive obstruction of justice.

Remember, back in June, IRS officials told Congress that the emails were lost and that the agency had gone to “great lengths” to try to retrieve them.

Conveniently, the emails lost were mainly ones to and from people outside the IRS, such as the White House, Treasury, Department of Justice, FEC, or Democrat offices.

The shocking information was provided to Judicial Watch by order of U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, who, back in July, ordered the IRS to provide a declaration explaining exactly how the agency managed to “lose” two years’ worth of emails belonging to Lois Lerner.

Fitton spoke to Fox News about the revelation:

Hey, remember when Obama told Bill O’Reilly that there’s “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the IRS?

Those words are coming back to haunt him.

  • fred

    Well of course the still exist, any IT person knows that..Even when you deliberately delete them they still exist.

    • robertsgt40

      I would think the NSA could cough up some copies.

  • jim_robert

    “Will be hard to find???” ROTFL Here’s a hint, Einsteins: Use the **search** function.

    Is this something they will be able to find? I guess that depends upon what the meaning of “is” is… right, leftists?????

      What happens is this: The entire database of what is on the email server on any day is backed up as a whole. To get the emails, they have to do a daily restore of the outlook database and then a dump of Lois’ email box would be done… The a restore of the next day’s outlook database would be done and another scan for Lois’ emails etc. This is what I expected them to do in the first place… If they’d done this in the first place, we’d already have the emails but, that just wasn’t on the agenda.

  • jim_robert

    Here’s another idea; just ask the NSA. Heck, they are watching as I type this, and have everything I have EVER written. So, what’s the problem?????

  • P dot

    8 years for obstruction of justice plus with added circumstances.

  • robertsgt40

    Admit emails exist but would be hard to find? By admitting they exist would indicate someone knows where they are.

  • Deregister. Contact local clerk, simple. Then let’s start a Constitutional registry wherein We the People vote for Statesmen, not puke, IMF whore politicians

  • whitefeather

    Know what’s funny? By funny I mean tragic. If we were to step up and arrest these bums, clean up our Republic, I would bet that ISIS (amongst others) wouldn’t consider lifting a finger to this great nation…….

    • Undecider

      Or, out of desperation, ISIS would be launched full force and the country would go into police state lockdown. That’s part of the game plan.

  • Heldonhammer

    This just in- people in government do anything to avoid doing work- especially if it not part of their daily routine. Look not farther than the local DMV.

    It’s too ONEROUS to search through??? Then WHY do they have a system in the FIRST PLACE? What is the entire point?!
