On July 9, 2014, Rep. Jim Jordan, Republican, OH-04, questioned the current IRS Commissioner John Koskinen regarding Lois Lerner's e-mails, some of which discussed how that she was trying to hide information that demonstrated she was without a doubt breaking laws and then hiding those damaging and revealing e-mails from Congress. Koskinen, continued his stall offensive, so far successful since his February 14, 2014 initial subpoena from Congress for ALL the Lois Lerner e-mails, as he argued with Representative Jordan.
and implied that those related e-mails were therefore not going to be given Congress because if the 2011 hard drive is gone, why should we even look at all the Server archived e-mails on back up that are to remain in existence by law for 5 years?
Then on July 23, 2014, it was reported from the latest round of hearings that IRS Commisioner Koskinen admitted that the Lois Lerner computer hard drive was intentionally accessed and intentionally "scratched" or sabotaged in order to prevent the e-mails from being recoverable
( in compliance with any Congressional subpoena, no doubt).

On March 26, 2014, Koskinen had argued with Representative Chaffetz about a February 14, 2014 subpoena from Congress that it would take over a year to even “get back to you” about having to collect and give Lois Lerner’s emails to Congress. Then ,Koskinen admits that all of Lois Lerner’s e-mail were “archived” on an off-site server not having to do with Lois Lerner’s personal computer anyway, and that he doesn’t have to provide the info because he was of the personal opinion that no judge would enforce the subpoena, and that Congress could simply wait years before they would be allowed to see them, and that regardless of what the subpoena says, he was determined that he refused to give them up without redacting them of the 6103 information. That is…we have them, screw you, you cannot have them.
On July 23, 2014 Representative Gowdy, who is one of my personal top two choices for the next Speaker of the House, again grilled Koskinen who played off that Investigator General (IG) investigations prevent him from doing any dual investigation of most any kind.
Then later, on the Floor of the House in a one minute speech, Representative Gowdy informs the House that the IRS has changed their testimony 8 DIFFERENT TIMES, and were anyone else to attempt to do so in committing such perjury, they would be inmates.
