It should be very interesting to hear what they find. That’s a lot of e-mails.
As many as 30,000 emails from former IRS official Lois Lerner have reportedly been found, which could give House Republicans another chance to examine Lerner’s precise role in the IRS targeting scandal.
The Washington Examiner reported Friday that as many as 30,000 emails from Lerner have been recovered by Treasury’s Inspector General for Tax Administration.
The IRS spent months saying many of Lerner’s emails were lost, to the disappointment of Republicans who were investigating her role in the IRS decision to apply more scrutiny to conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, just before the 2012 election. The Examiner said TIGTA found many of those emails on “disaster recovery tapes,” and has been working to recover them fully.
