Criminal investigation of Lerner's missing emails underway
Looks like they found 744 backup tapes pretty much right away, and recently located another 424. And "there is potential criminal activity." On one level that's simple common sense, but when the person running the investigation says it, it usually means that potential is actually being looked into.
It's not just the case of the mysteriously missing hard drives, either. The IG was able to locate the backup tapes within two weeks of starting to look for them, despite Koskinen testifying that the tapes were destroyed. That could qualify as criminal based on perjury or based on refusing to provide them to Congress. Plus there is the canceled backup contract. That's a lot of coincidences all at once.
It's good that someone appears to be taking this seriously.
