In a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing Monday evening, U.S. Congressman Blake Farenthold (TX-27) questioned Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner John Koskinen on the agency losing two years' worth of former IRS official Lois Lerner's e-mails central to the Congressional probe into the IRS' political targeting. As part of its investigation into revelations that the IRS unfairly targeted conservative groups over their tax-exempt status, the Oversight Committee issued subpoenas for several IRS documents, including 2009 -- 2011 e-mail communications of Lois Lerner, the former head of the IRS department charged with the targeting. Commissioner Koskinen was summoned to testify last night before the Oversight Committee following the agency's failure to produce Lerner's subpoenaed e-mails.
