    Thousands of new Lerner emails found

    Thousands of new Lerner emails found

    [...]

    Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration (TIGTA) said it found roughly 6,400 emails either to or from Lerner from between 2004 and 2013 that it didn’t think the IRS had turned over to lawmakers, the congressional committees said. The committees have yet to examine the emails, aides on Capitol Hill said.

    The IRS said last year that Lerner’s computer crashed in 2011, leaving it unable to reproduce an untold number of her emails over the prior two years.

    Of the emails the inspector general found, around 650 were from 2010 and 2011, while most were from 2012. The inspector general found about 35,000 emails in all as it sought to recover emails from recycled back-up tapes.

    Aides said there would likely be some duplicates among the emails that would have been turned over to Congress in previous document productions.

    I don't think anyone is ever immune from Congress.

    Common sense and good governance certainly seem to be.

    I think the deal Lerner requested was immunity in exchange for testimony. There's been no testimony, so I assume no immunity has been offered. Bear in mind that without a complete examination of the evidence - in this case emails - nobody in their right mind would offer immunity in advance. It would appear that the evidence in question contains damning evidence of some nature, or Lerner wouldn't be requesting immunity out of the gate. As more evidence is recovered, Lerner's offer continues to lose traction.

    I had only seen that she asked for it. Not that it had been given.

    Are you hinting that Learner sent you such emails?
