IRS Stalls on Sharing New Lois Lerner Emails

IRS Stalls on Sharing New Lois Lerner Emails

Most transparent administration ever.

The race for 2016 has shifted the focus of the media and many Americans away from the IRS scandal, but a new development in the story has come to light.

Over 6,000 Lois Lerner emails have been found but the IRS is stalling on sharing them.

You’ll never guess why.

Gerri Willis of the FOX Business Network reports:

IRS Finds 6,400 Lois Lerner Emails But Won’t Hand Em Over

The Internal Revenue Service may have found 6,400 emails from Lois Lerner, who oversaw the tax agency’s Exempt Organizations Unit, but the government agency has no plans to share.

Attorneys from the Department of Justice representing the IRS say the emails won’t be shared because the service is making sure that none of them are duplicates. Lerner is at the center of a scandal in which the tax agency denied special tax status to conservative groups. Her emails have been sought by members of Congress and conservative groups alike.

One of those groups, Judicial Watch, has been seeking emails as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed two years ago. Originally, the IRS said the email trail was permanently lost because the computer drive that contained it crashed. However, the Treasury Department’s Inspector General for Tax Administration or TIGTA, was able to retrieve 6,400 emails which it has subsequently sent to the agency. It is these emails that the IRS wants to check for duplicates.

Watch the video report below.

IRS Finds 6,400 New Lois Lerner Emails…Gives DUMBEST EXCUSE YET For Not Releasing Them

The Internal Revenue Service found 6,400 more Lois Lerner emails — but they’re not handing them over in court.

The IRS’ latest excuses are nothing short of infuriating…

TIGTA already checked for duplicate emails:

“Prior to providing the Service with the approximately 6,400 forensically-recovered emails, TIGTA identified and removed emails which appear to be duplicates of those which the Service has already produced to the Congressional Committees or were duplicates of other recovered emails.”

As TheDC reported, the inspector general needed some kind of special software to make sure the emails weren’t duplicates, then they received the software, so the “checking for duplicates” explanation should have been put to rest.

This is government efficiency at its finest, folks.

More like government obstruction of justice at its finest.

It’s been obvious for a long time that the administration is just trying to stall and delay the investigation into their IRS corruption for as long as possible, in a bid to run out the clock.

People need to start getting charged and going to jail for this kind of crap.

Two words: Incriminating evidence.

The al-Chicagi Department of Persecution won’t let this information out until he has pardoned himself, Eric Holder and Lois Lerner.

So Big Gov’t: The Bureau of Duplication Matters must duplicate its efforts except, of course, with regard to State Dept. information where it’s every Clinton for herself.

Rope; street lights; platform with trapdoor; corrupt officials.

Some assembly required. No batteries needed.

It’s hard to believe it of such a historically revered and treasured federal agency like the IRS, but I’m beginning to think they’re trying to hide something.

shouldn’t finding duplicates take all of 10 minutes on modern computer hardware?

Time to end the IRS – state agencies could do its duties cheaper.

Just love how the msm is silent on the endless scandals in this administration. There isn’t a single government entity that this corrupt president hasn’t used for his own ends rather than for the citizens of the USA

have the IT guy and every boss of his in the chain of command show up to the judge with the emails and a toothbrush.

SOMEBODY needs to go to jail for contempt and not Club Fed and not administrative segregation. Let them find out what servicing the population really means in jail
