Judicial Watch files for discovery to find missing Lerner emails

In an August 22, 2014 telephone conference, IRS attorneys informed Judicial Watch about the existence of an electronic data backup system that stores all government records in the case of a catastrophic event. The agency’s attorneys also asserted that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (“TIGTA”) is looking into whether some of these backup tapes may include the missing emails, but that the IRS would not search these tapes because doing so would allegedly be too onerous. When Judicial Watch requested that the IRS supplement its declarations to include this material information, the IRS refused.

In short, the IRS is refusing even to disclose to the court the existence of backup systems that may contain evidence.
