White House: IRS made good-faith effort on e-mails

WASHINGTON (AP) — Facing a furor from angry Republican lawmakers, the White House said Monday that the Internal Revenue Service engaged in a good faith effort to find lost emails from an IRS official whose division processed applications for tax-exempt status by politically oriented groups.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest called criticism from Republican lawmakers about the missing emails, quote, "far-fetched" and "not particularly believable." The IRS says the emails to and from the official, Lois Lerner, disappeared when her computer crashed in 2011.

The IRS acknowledged last year that agents improperly scrutinized applications by some conservative groups. Documents have shown some liberal groups were also flagged.

Earnest said the IRS has produced 67,000 emails to and from Lerner. He said the IRS has tried to track down missing e-mails through other sources and those that have been recovered have been provided to Congress.


Earnest said speculation questioning whether the e-mails were actually lost "is indicative of the kinds of conspiracies that are propagated around this story."

One would expect built-in backups, built-in "mirroring," for high level government work which has legal implications, like the IRS.

So will conclude at this time, the truth is:

--The smoking gun is in her emails, and they are just going to try to run out the clock on the administration, with delays, like this and more to follow.

--They really are so incompetent, as to not have backups, mirroring, etc.

--It seems the Republicans are not sharp enough to break these scandals out into the open fast enough to accomplish it in time, to a degree of use politically. I offer Darrel Issa as proof.

No organization has kept emails strictly on the C: drive of a computer for a couple of decades now.  That all gets backed up to network servers during the day and saved off as a daily backup every night.

Course, liberals (dim bulbs that they are) will believe anything that their glorious leaders tell them to believe...

I bet they made a good-faith effort. Just like they did in Benghazi.

I have news for anyone who thinks the mere fact that you have deleted an E-mail from YOUR hard drive means that said e-mail is gone!
