BREAKING: US Archivist Says the IRS Broke the Law Regarding Lost Emails


The IRS may have thought that “losing” Lois Lerner’s e-mails would be an easy way to make this whole scandal go away, but that tactic is backfiring on them more every day. Now, the nation’s top archivist, David Ferriero, is not pulling any punches, saying that the IRS broke the law by not informing Congress that the emails had been lost.

The nation’s top archivist says the Internal Revenue Service did not follow the law when it failed to report the loss of records belonging to a senior IRS executive.

David Ferriero says federal law requires that government agencies must notify the National Archives and Records Administration when it becomes aware that federal records are lost.

Ferriero says his organization learned of the lost records about three years after the fact.

Ferriero was testifying Tuesday before the House Oversight and Government Reform committee about the loss of emails belonging to a key figure in the congressional IRS tea party investigation.

While it’s great for Ferriero to publicly say what we all know to be the truth — not many people in DC have that kind of courage — how much will it really matter? Obama and his administration could care less about breaking the law, and they aren’t likely to punish themselves for doing so, either.
