Just when you thought you were tired of the circus: Investigators now say that it will be almost impossible to retrieve copies of the reported hundreds of emails between Lois Lerner, embattled figure in IRSgate, and Obama administration officials.
The hard drive has been recycled.
Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s crashed hard drive has been recycled, making it likely the lost emails of the lightening rod in the tea party targeting controversy will never be found, according to multiple sources.
“We’ve been informed that the hard drive has been thrown away,” Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the top Republican on the Finance Committee, said in a brief hallway interview.
“IT experts have weighed in and said yes — we can get those” emails, said Rep. Charles Boustany (R-La.) earlier Wednesday.
