The IRS Scandal, Day 1016

IRS Logo 2Watchdog.org, EPA Cleared of Bias in Alaska Mine Controversy Despite Lost Emails:

Despite acknowledging it could not obtain more than two years of emails from a key employee, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Inspector General on Wednesday effectively cleared the EPA of allegations of bias in its quest to preemptively kill a proposed mine in southwest Alaska.

The troubling details of the missing emails raise charges of an EPA whitewashing, a scenario and an allegation all-too-familiar in the Obama administration. ...

More than 20 different Obama administration officials have lost or destroyed email communications. Arguably the most egregious example was the lost emails of Lois Lerner, the former IRS agent who led the office accused of targeting nonprofit conservative groups.
