It now looks like the IRS conveniently lost the Lerner emails that would prove the extent of the criminal activity going on there:
Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement regarding the Internal Revenue Service informing the Committee that they have lost Lois Lerner emails from a period of January 2009 – April 2011. Due to a supposed computer crash, the agency only has Lerner emails to and from other IRS employees during this time frame. The IRS claims it cannot produce emails written only to or from Lerner and outside agencies or groups, such as the White House, Treasury, Department of Justice, FEC, or Democrat offices.
Man, that was a one convenient computer crash, huh? I am sure the usual defenders of the indefensible will demand we believe this is just another coincidence in a long, long string of similar coincidences, and then tell us to just let it go, because4 obviously there is no evidence so there is no case. The left is a crime syndicate, I tell you. They play for keeps. They think the law is their cudgel with which to beat the enemy down, and nothing more. These people are the robber barons of old on steroids.
Look, anyone that doesn’t at this point believe the Obama administration ordered the IRS to do this, then had the FBI and other US agencies actually work to target their political enemies is a fucking fool. This is the administration Nixon would have sold his soul to the devil to have been able to have. If you want to see corrupt: look towards the progressives.
UPATE: Over at Powerline they have a DOJ employee that confirmed the IRS computers back up every night, so this unlikely bullshit about not having the emails is bunk. As we predicted in the commentaries, the next one will be that the backup server had an issue, and then we will have the LSM telling us to just drop it already, because there is no evidence to support this faux scandal….
