The IRS just announced it “lost” two years’ worth of emails from former top IRS official Lois Lerner.
It didn’t lose all of her emails, only her emails to the White House, Federal Election Commission, Department of Justice, and other federal agencies.
In other words, only the most incriminating emails from the person at the heart of this unlawful targeting scandal are lost.
The IRS blames a “computer crash.”
Really? Do they expect us to believe that?
The stonewalling here is more brazen than Richard Nixon’s lost tapes.
We can’t trust the Obama Justice Department – stocked with donors to the Obama campaign – to investigate this outrage. It’s time for a Special Counsel – independent of the Obama Justice Department -- to investigate the IRS.
To: President Obama and the Attorney General,
Your government cannot investigate itself. To preserve the integrity of the Department of Justice and the IRS, it’s time for an independent investigation. Appoint a Special Counsel.
