In spite of numerous claims to the contrary by a rash of individuals and officials within the IRS and other areas of Americaâ€™s government, an admission was recently made that those statements were indeed false. The claims that the missing Lois Lerner IRS emails were ever actually missing were simply lies.
Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, the group that is pursuing the release of the information, reveals that last Friday, a Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney that the federal government does, in fact, back up all computer records as has long been suspected. It is a precautionary measure in the event of a disaster in which the original data is lost or destroyed, designed to keep the government operating.
Fitton says, they claim that â€œit would be too hard to go get Lois Lernerâ€™s emails from that backup system. So everything that weâ€™ve been hearing about scratched hard drives, about missing emails of Lois Lerner, other IRS officials, other officials in the Obama administration, itâ€™s all been a pack of malarkey. They could get these records but they donâ€™t want to and they havenâ€™t told anyone about it, frankly until we were able to get it out of them on Friday. And thereâ€™s no such thing as Lois Lernerâ€™s missing emails, itâ€™s all been a big lie. Theyâ€™ve been lying to the courts, the American people and to Congress. Itâ€™s really outrageous.â€
The discussion turns to the violations of subpoenas, about false sworn congressional testimony, court hearings, and orders from a federal judge in DC for sworn affidavits which also failed to include this information. Why has this backup system been kept secret from all of those conducting investigations? And what illegalities were conducted in the process of the cover up?
Fitton adds that not only are the Lerner emails now believed to exist, but the other supposed missing emails of other officials as well as the lost HHS and EPA emails.
Fitton says that rather than continuing to obstruct justice, the Obama regime needs to get on the ball and start retrieving these emails.
Obama was right, thereâ€™s not a smidgeon of corruption. Itâ€™s huge, itâ€™s rampant and itâ€™s everywhere in the federal government.
