Judge to IRS: Explain the Lost Emails Under Oath

From the AP:

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan gave the tax agency a month to submit the explanation in writing. Sullivan said he is also appointing a federal magistrate to see whether the lost emails can be obtained from other sources.

Sullivan issued the order as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group. He said the IRS declaration must be signed, under oath, by the appropriate IRS official.

The IRS will be in front of a different federal judge today getting to explain the lost emails in response to the lawsuit from True the Vote.

The report back to Judge Sullivan is due by August 10th–a strict deadline. The federal magistrate’s report is due by September 9th.
