The IRS says it has lost emails from five more workers who are part of congressional investigations into the treatment of conservative groups that applied for tax exempt status.
On Friday, the IRS said it has also lost emails from five other employees related to the probe, including two agents who worked in a Cincinnati office processing applications for tax-exempt status.
The agency blamed computer crashes for the lost emails. In a statement, the IRS said it found no evidence that anyone deliberately destroyed evidence.
I am shocked they dumped this news on a Friday afternoon (not really.) I’m also just as shocked to learn that they are using the same excuse of a crash that they used when emails of Lois Lerner and others were reported to be missing.
