Remember Those Missing IRS Emails? They Appear to Exist….

“There’s no such thing as Lois Lerner’s missing emails. It’s all been a big lie. They’ve been lying to the courts, to the American people, and to Contgess. It is really outrageous.” That’s Tom Filton, President of Judicial Watch:

The reason that the IRS allegedly hasn’t attempted to recover the missing emails? “It would be too difficult.”

Now, I do need to point out that all we have at this point is Mr. Filton’s stating that Department of Justice attorneys stated this (along with a statement released by Judicial Watch). It’s possible that this isn’t true. That said, it makes sense that there are backup systems in place. I backup information and I have nowhere near the critical needs of the government.

Assuming that what Mr. Filton stated is true, both Congress and the Courts have been lied to by the current IRS Commissioner John Koskinen and by various attorneys. This isn’t deceit, this isn’t misstatements; this is out-and-out lying. If I were a federal judge being told today that the emails exist (after telling you they didn’t) but it’s too hard to get them, I know what my reaction would be. I suspect most judges will have the same reaction.

The next court hearing involving this scandal should be mighty interesting….
