It wouldn't be too hard to conclude that her "outside" emails were by and between the White House and certain interested members of Congress. Elijah Cummings has already been implicated, so one can just imagine the breadth of his actual involvement in the scandal.

And Cummings is just powerful enough to pull off this hilariously desperate ruse.
The new IRS chief arrogantly testified that it would take years to produce the materials so this isn't surprising. The excuses don't necessarily have to be good ones and they've probably got a list of others. It sounds like something Holder's DOJ came up with so they could be involved in another investigation that they will not legitimately pursue thus controlling the outcome and timeline.

You don't lose emails due to a computer crash. The first thing they teach on the job is redundancy and backup.
It is plausible that email logs are spun off from a RAID array to some other back up media after a time. But the explanation that only certain potentially incriminating emails were destroyed by a computer glitch has zero credibility.

Yeah, the, "I found out about it through the news and was just as socked as you were" excuse is wearing thin.

The pity of this is that the Republicans are sitting there twiddling their fingers. Wouldn't it be nice if just ONE of them had the balls to actually do something about this instead of sitting there mewling like little kittens?
