A Justice Department official admitted that the missing e-mails of former IRS official Lois Lerner (pictured) actually do exist on a backup server, but the government doesn’t plan to retrieve them.
"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,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Fox News’s Shannon Bream.
“But it would be too hard to go get Lois Lerner’s e-mails from that backup system,” Fitton continued, paraphrasing the DOJ official. “So, everything we’ve been hearing about scratched hard drives, about missing e-mails of Lois Lerner, other IRS officials, other officials in the Obama administration, it’s all been a pack of malarkey.”
They could get these records, but they don’t want to.
They have been lying all along about the Learner e-mails.
At all levels Democrats in Washington have been covering for the administration like good boot-licking sheeple*.
