Remember when Barack Obama insisted that there wasn’t a “smidgen of corruption” in his administration related to the IRS scandal? Good times, good times. The discovery of tens of thousands of e-mails from Lois Lerner, the central figure in the IRS targeting of conservative non-profits, may rewrite the scandal — and may end up with criminal charges for Lerner:

Federal investigators are looking for possible criminal activity in connection with the missing emails of a central figure in the Internal Revenue service’s targeting scandal.

The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration testified at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on Thursday that it tracked down nearly 33,000 emails from ex-IRS official Lois Lerner. …

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified before Congress last year that the backups were no help in recovering Lerner’s lost emails, in part because the IRS overwrites them every six months.

Camus said the IRS’s technology specialists told investigators that no one from the agency asked for the tapes, raising doubts about whether the agency did its due diligence in trying to locate Lerner’s emails, or possibly greater troubles.

“There is potential criminal activity,” Camus said.


Patrick Howley reports that the IG’s investigation is having technical problems of its own, but that it’s clear that Koskinen didn’t tell Congress the truth last year about the records:

Wow. That is one of the most misleading headlines I've ever seen.

The emails don't implicate Lerner of anything.

Does that mean Lerner is potentially going to be jailed sometime in the future or something, anything?

Nope. There's zero indication that there's anything in the emails that implicate Lerner of anything.

The criminal investigation is why it took so long to find them.

Oh man, you're raining on the parade. They said many months ago that she was going to be jailed.......any day now.......Day-am I thought for sure they were going to get her this time, one last time for the very last time......Shirley they can find a sentence or two taken out of context for the rubes to swallow!
