'It's all been a big lie!': Obama administration lawyer now admits 'missing' Lois Lerner emails WERE backed up but claims it's too hard to search for them

A U.S. government lawyer has conceded that tens of thousands of long-missing emails belonging to former IRS official Lois Lerner – messages the Obama administration has claimed were lost in a 2011 computer crash – were safely backed up along with the computer records of every other federal employee.

The documents are key to a congressional investigation into a political targeting scheme Lerner allegedly masterminded, which involved singling out conservative nonprofits for especially intrusive scrutiny – based on words in their names like 'tea party' or 'patriots' – when they applied for tax-exempt charitable status.

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, whose group is suing the IRS over its failure to provide the records to Congress, said Monday that the revelation came on Friday from an attorney who works in Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department.

'All the focus on missing hard drives has been a diversion,' he said. 'The Obama administration has known all along where the email records could be – but dishonestly withheld this information. You can bet we are going to ask the court for immediate assistance in cutting through this massive obstruction of justice.'

The IRS answers to the Federal Reserve Bank. It is an independent for-profit privately owned cartel of international bankers.

It and the IRS do not answer to the American Public (or Congress).

My God. How many stories can they come up with before ONE national news organization calls them out on it???
They've given us lies to cover up lies that were used to cover up other lies that covered up the original cover up lies and STILL can't stick to one story (lie).
The only thing they haven't done is hold a news conference with shredded paper hanging out of all of their pockets, while telling us they "aren't aware of any current documents available for inspection at this time."
Keep cheering.
