    The head of the IRS confirmed Wednesday that investigators looking into missing emails from ex-agency official Lois Lerner have found and are reviewing "backup tapes" -- despite earlier IRS claims that the tapes had been recycled.

    IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, testifying before a House oversight subcommittee, stressed that he does not know "how they found them" or "whether there's anything on them or not." But he said the inspector general's office advised him the investigators are reviewing tapes to see if they contain any "recoverable" material.

    The revelation is significant because the IRS claimed, when the agency first told Congress about the missing emails, that backup tapes "no longer exist because they have been recycled."
    .......

    of course does not mean they find anything or that the evidence won't have already been tampered with

    I believe they realized that making misrepresentations to two federal judges is not advisable.

    something tells me there will be nothing found on them and they will say look, we tried.

    If that is the reason that it took this long to suddenly "find them," our country is too far gone to come back.

    Bill, I think they should look at the fillings of EVERY group raising chitloads of money. Be it left, right, or from France, that has to be known by everyone , democracy, doesn't exist with this pornographic amount of cash prostituting our system. The SCOTUS in the 70's couldn't name porno but they knew it when they saw it. This bunch we have now doesn't now chit from shinola.

    Koskinen is showing what happens when your witness didn't start in the IRS job until late last year.Everything he is being told happened before he got there, and so he's totally reliant on other people.And their investigations started about when he did.

    Koskinen is an obama shill- his arrogance showed in his last testimony- he will continue to cover for obama

    He's intentionally using his late arrival on the scene to plead ignorance.

    Anyone think they will get any emails that would be detrimental to anyone?

    They have had plenty of time to destroy anything of importance.

    Uh, why is the IRS reviewing them?

    Just turn them over to investigators and let them handle it. I don't trust these people not to "lose" the most pertinent ones.

    Yeah, I forgot.

    Ugh. Once found, they should have been ripped from their hands ASAP. We're trusting the accused to handle the evidence properly? :rolleyes:
