IRS: Hey, Maybe We Do Have Our E-mail Backups

 

 

 

 

 

” Does the IRS actually have their backups for e-mail from the period when Lois Lerner and her group targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny on tax-exempt applications? The agency claimed a month ago that it overwrote the tapes every six months, in one of the most notorious (and unsuccessful) Friday afternoon document dumps ever. New testimony from one of the IRS’ top lawyers released last night by the House Oversight Committee casts doubt on that story (via Instapundit):

  The IRS might not have lost the backups of former agency administrator Lois Lerner’s emails after all, according to a top IRS official.

  In testimony released Monday, Thomas Kane, the IRS’s deputy associate chief counsel, told House Oversight investigators last week that the agency was examining whether all the back-up tapes which held the emails have been recycled. “

 

 

Now that they’ve had plenty of time to create a bogus email trail they miraculously find the “back-ups” ? Hot Air has more .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Brigadier General On Failure To Rescue Americans In Benghazi

” Dominos are falling in the Benghazi cover-up. Today, explosive and emotional testimony from Brig. Gen. Robert Lovell (Ret.), former Intelligence Director of U.S. Africa Command, rocked the House Government Oversight Committee. Lowell held his post at the time of the Benghazi attack, which fell into his area of command. From the U.S. base in Stuttgart, Germany, Lovell watched the message traffic relating to Benghazi, in real time, as the attack was unfolding.

  As Lovell stated, it is “my duty” to come forward to give the American people a “full forthcoming” about what happened. The discussion in the post-Benghazi investigations has focused on issues such as time, distance and assets that could have been used to rescue the Americans under attack. However, said Lovell, his voice filling with emotion,

 

“The point is we should have tried. The military is trained to go in the direction of gunfire.”

In Benghazi they did not, and the question remains why.”
