An extremely suspicious and potentially incriminating Lois Lerner email has been uncovered, just as an IRS watchdog investigating the disappearance of Lerner’s emails testified to Congress that criminal activity could be afoot.
The recently revealed email in question came directly from the internal IRS email account of Lois Lerner, the disgraced former director of the IRS’ Exempt Organizations office who was at the center of a political witch hunt against conservative, religious, and Tea Party affiliated nonprofit organizations.
Sent in June, 2011, at the height of the IRS targeting controversy, Lerner’s email seems to be questioning the odds of the public believing that numerous IRS hard drives crashed within days of each other:
Last June, IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Thomas Kane told Congress that “less than 20″ IRS officials had experienced computer crashes.
Hard drive crashes were discovered then for David Fish, who routinely corresponded with Lois Lerner, as well as Lerner subordinate Andy Megosh, Lerner’s technical adviser Justin Lowe, and Cincinnati-based agent Kimberly Kitchens, the Daily Caller reports.
If you notice, Lerner’s email above was sent to Fish.
Just this week, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration recovered a number of those supposedly “lost” IRS emails.
