By now, the whole world knows that on Friday, 30,000 “missing” Lois Lerner emails were discovered.
We don’t want you to think that there’s anything shady going on here. It’s probably just a coincidence that they were found a couple of weeks after an important, mid-term election.
These 30,000 emails were allegedly lost forever. But, lo and behold, they were discovered on backup disaster recovery tapes! Yes, the same kind of backup disaster recovery tapes that experts have been telling us existed all along.
We’re certain that the Treasury Department inspector general had much better things to do than look for these backup disaster recovery tapes before the day of the midterm elections. We’re happy to give the benefit of the doubt when it’s warranted.
After all, members of the mainstream media continue to take the President at his word when he tells them something, so who are we to question any members of the administration?
Lois Lerner is the IRS employee who is accused of targeting conservative groups for extra scrutiny. She plead the Fifth Amendment at her congressional hearing rather than answer tough questions about her role in using the IRS to administratively persecute the President’s opponents.
Members of the House oversight committee had requested her emails to learn more about her involvement in the scandal. They were told that those emails had been lost due to a hard drive crash.
Now, with the election just finished, the emails have been miraculously discovered.
It’s just a coincidence, though.
