Watch The Moment Republicans Discovered the IRS Was Hiding More of Lois Lerner’s Emails

After months of testimony from the IRS saying they provided Congress with all the emails they had from Lois Lerner, the central figure of the IRS scandal, it turns out that someone was lying. And here’s the moment when Republicans discovered it from testimony during their investigation:

From the Washington Times:

The IRS belatedly told Congress it may have lost some of Ms. Lerner’s emails after her computer crashed, and asserted that the backup tapes didn’t exist.

But under questioning from Mr. Chaffetz, Mr. Camus said it took him only two weeks to track down the backup tapes, and when he asked the IRS depository for them, the workers there said they’d never been contacted by the agency itself.

Republicans said that was stunning because IRS Commissioner John Koskinen repeatedly assured Congress the emails were irretrievably lost.

“I think they have misled or lied to the committee,” said Rep. John L. Mica, Florida Republican.

Mr. Camus said they were clued in to the 424 new tapes they just found a couple of weeks ago after realizing the IRS hadn’t given over a key document. They demanded that document, and realized it showed hundreds of other tapes existed.

Now what do you think the IRS might have been doing with those backup tapes in all the months it took them to be discovered? You think just maybe they’ve been scrubbing any evidence that might be on those emails that might show White House ordering that conservative groups be targeted by the IRS?

Nah, I’m sure it was all an honest mistake.
