Mr. Speaker, crisis: IRS emails have vaporized.
Where, oh where have the emails gone? Where, oh, where can they be? In another Friday evening news dump, the administration announced that 2 years of Lois Lerner’s emails have vanished. Poof, gone.
That is not all. Today, we learned that the emails of six other prominent IRS officials involved in targeting conservatives have disappeared. Poof, gone. Isn’t that an oddly convenient disappearance?
Have they gone to the same place the missing 18 minutes of Nixon’s Watergate tapes went? The IRS blames the well-timed fiasco on a computer glitch.
Mr. Speaker, what do you suppose would happen if the IRS came to a citizen’s home to audit their taxes and the citizen said, sorry, the records were lost in a computer crash? The Tax collector would laugh.
It is time for a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS and find out where, oh, where have those emails gone. This yarn by the IRS requires a willing suspension of disbelief. Mr. Speaker, that dog just won’t hunt.
And that’s the way it is.
