article imageJudge orders IRS to find lost e-mails related to Tea Party event

By Walter McDaniel     Jul 11, 2014 in Politics
Washington - U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan oversaw the case and ordered the Internal Revenue Service to explain how they had managed to lose the information. He also ordered authorities to search for the e-mails from other sources as well.
This ruling comes as part of the Judicial Watch, Inc. v. Internal Revenue Service case. In this case Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the IRS. They wanted information related to the Tea Party targeting case. They wanted to know the full story about how and why members were singled out by the IRS and the case is still in deliberation.
Information on Lois G. Lerner was also requested due to her involvement in the case. Many high-ranking officials in the IRS were allegedly using their power to hinder the movements of the Tea Party. Now much of the information has gone missing from their records.
Previous reports have alleged that Lerner told other workers to hide information from congress. Many are speculating what this information could mean when combined with the fact that she is staying silent about the most important details. She has released some information at the time of this writing but it has been very limited in scope.
According to reports from Yahoo News IRS authorities claim many e-mails were lost when Lerner's computer crashed. They were however still able to recover many of them since Lerner had copied in other IRS employees when sending the message. If the lost information cannot be found these messages may be the key to finding the full truth on this Tea Party incident.
