Latest Internal Revenue Service Items
The head of the IRS brushed aside accusations Monday that the agency has obstructed investigations into the targeting of tea party and other political groups, even as Republican lawmakers questioned his credibility.
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress on Friday that he doesn't owe any apology for the agency losing Lois G. Lerner's emails — or for waiting so long to inform investigators about the loss.

With shock and sadness, the IRS announced that the emails of Lois Lerner — the IRS official sacrificed by the Obama administration as the only possible source for the "accidental" IRS attacks on Tea Party and other right leaning groups — from 2009 to 2011 were lost in a computer "hard drive crash" in early summer 2011.
The Internal Revenue Service is informing Congress that the computer hard drives of seven employees all crashed during the critical period leading up to the breaking of the conservative-group-targeting scandal ("GOP: IRS lost emails go beyond Lerner," Web, June 17). In this claimed crash, decisive emails were supposedly lost from the server where they were stored and forensic techniques for recovering data from all hard drives were said to have failed.

Lois G. Lerner, the employee at the center of the IRS tea party targeting scandal, wanted to recover files from her computer hard drive after it crashed in 2011, but when told it was impossible, she took a philosophical view.
