Federal watchdogs uncover thousands of lost Lerner emails, decoding to take weeks

As many as 30,000 lost emails from Lois Lerner — the ex-IRS official at the center of the agency’s targeting scandal — have been recovered by federal investigators.

The IRS has already turned over thousands of Lerner emails to congressional investigators but has said the remainder are gone forever because Lerner’s hard-drive crashed in 2011. And in June, agency Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress that back-up tapes containing the missing emails have been destroyed.  

“The IRS has continually dragged its feet, changed its story, and been less than forthcoming with information related to its egregious violation of Americans’ First Amendment rights,” said Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan, a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which has spearheaded congressional probes on the issue.

“These e-mails are long overdue, and underscore again why we need a special prosecutor to conduct an unhindered investigation. Hopefully these e-mails will help us get to the truth,” he continued.

Lerner led the IRS division that targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups for excessive scrutiny during the 2012 presidential election cycle when they applied for tax-exempt status.

Lerner in March refused to testify before the GOP-led House investigative committee, saying she was protected under the Fifth Amendment, and has since retired.

Some of the recovered emails might be duplicates. And it could take weeks to learn their content because they are encoded, said Frederick Hill, a spokesman for Republicans on the Oversight committee.

In addition, the IRS would also have to delete information about taxpayers that is considered private before it can be released to the committee, which is headed by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.

The federal investigators are from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which audits the IRS. A spokeswoman for the inspector general, Karen Kraushaar, declined to comment, saying the investigation was continuing.

The investigators ignited a political firestorm in May 2013 with the initial report about the exceptionally close scrutiny.

The IRS said Saturday that it remains “committed to fully cooperating with all of the pending investigations.”

The agency also said that it learned after the June report that the TIGTA had began an investigation of the hard-drive crash and a search for additional emails. 

Senate Finance Committee aides said the investigators will assess if the newly recovered data can be made readable before it can be turned over to the committee.

They said their committee, which has been conducting a bipartisan investigation of the IRS’s treatment of groups, including liberal ones, expects to complete its work early next year.

Russian Military Activity in Europe’s Airspace Is ‘Dangerous,’ Says U.K.

_78931703_russ_nato_incidents_map624v3

‘We Are Responding,’ Says U.K. Defense Minister as He Discusses Issue With European Peers

“We’ve seen larger [Russian] formations, going further,” Mr. Fallon told The Wall Street Journal in an interview. “On Oct .31, we saw Russian aircraft go past Norway, past Denmark, past the U.K., past Ireland, all the way down to Portugal. Portugal and Ireland are of no concern to Russia.”

Described the recent Russian aircraft activity as unnecessary, Mr. Fallon said “it’s illegal and doesn’t conform to the conventions of international aviation. It’s provocative, it’s intimidating and frankly it’s dangerous.”

Russian aircraft that don’t file flight plans or that maintain no radio contact are posing a risk to civil aviation, according to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. NATO has recorded more than 100 intercepts of Russian aircraft in European airspace so far this year, three times the total last year.

Asked whether the Russians were increasing their activity to test Western defense capabilities, Mr. Fallon said: “if they are, we are responding.” The 12 countries meeting in Oslo Thursday discussed closer cooperation on the sharing of data and intelligence on the Russian airspace activity, he added.

The Oslo meeting included ministers of defense from the Baltic and Nordic countries, and the U.K., as well as representatives from Poland, Iceland, the Netherlands and Germany, and comes at a time of increased Russian military activity on land and at sea.

“There’s clearly concern about that, and that’s one reason I’m here today,” Mr. Fallon said.

Russia on Wednesday sent fresh convoys of troops and tanks into eastern Ukraine, according to NATO. Meanwhile, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Moscow will extend its long-distance aerial missions as far as the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.

“The security situation in Europe has changed fundamentally,” Estonia’s Defense Minister Sven Mikser told The Wall Street Journal in an interview Thursday, adding that Europe should respond to Russia’s military buildup and increased military spending. “Strength is a language that (President Vladimir) Putin understands.”

“We see increased Russian military activity, for instance aircraft activity and exercises, both in the northern areas and the Baltic Sea region. A major part of our discussions has been how to address this,” said Norway’s Defense Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide.
