(Free Beacon / Worthy News)– The Internal Revenue Service claims to have lost two-years worth of emails between former IRS official Lois Lerner, who resigned under pressure for her role in the IRS targeting scandal, and outside agencies and groups.
House Ways and Means Committee chairman Dave Camp (R., Mich.) announced Friday that the IRS informed the committee it lost the emails, which the committee was seeking as part of its investigation into the targeting scandal, due to a computer crash in 2011.
In a statement, Camp called the disclosure—more than a year into the committee's investigation—"completely unacceptable and now calls into question the credibility of the IRS' response to congressional inquiries." — Source
