DOJ Official: Lerner’s Emails Exist, But We Refuse To Turn Them Over


This is just unacceptable.

Lois Lerner

Despite IRS officials’ sworn testimony and affidavits to the contrary, a DOJ attorney has learned there is a backup system where Lois Lerner’s emails are stored.
So why haven’t they been produced, pursuant to subpoena and court order?

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton explained on Fox News this afternoon:

A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there’s a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating. And they say it would be too hard to go get Lois Lerner’s emails from that backup system.

So everything we’ve been hearing about scratched hard drives…it’s all been a pack of malarkey. They could get these records, but they don’t want to.

And 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, to Congress. It’s outrageous

The House has the power to declare people in contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate and they can jail them. Realistically, they’re not going to use that power before the election, but certainly should use it afterwards. It’s time to produce the emails or go to jail!
