Every IT-savvy commenter and coblogger was saying that all of these emails are periodically backed up to tapes which are always available.
The IRS kept claiming they weren't. They claimed they were lost, or missing, or "recycled" every six months.
People not in the IRS kept saying "Bullshit, the point of the tapes is to keep them forever."
So yes. This new investigator, Mr. Camus, set out to find the tapes which the IRS head swore under oath did not exist and he found them. In two weeks.
This suggests the very real policy that multiple hands at the IRS deliberately lied to Congress in order to end Congress' search for the tapes, and that they further did not do the minimum due diligence required by law in cooperating with a federal subpoena: As Mr. Camus states, when he went to the storage facility in West Virginia, which is "exactly where you'd expect [the tapes] to be," the IT people there found them immediately, and furthermore said that no one had ever before asked for the tapes.
See the second video as well. Camus recovered 424 new tapes only because a document tipped him to the existence of these tapes. But the IRS withheld that document from him, seeking, it appears, to hide the existence of this tapes from the duly-authorized investigators.
The IRS withheld the document from him; apparently he got hold of it by other means.
