Does the title have the wrong word in quotes? Maybe it should be “Justice Department ‘investigating’ lost Lois Lerner emails.”

From the Wall Street Journal:

The Justice Department is conducting a criminal investigation into the loss of Internal Revenue Service emails that could shed light on the agency’s treatment of conservative groups.

As part of its criminal probe into the IRS’s treatment of politically active conservative groups, the Justice Department is “investigating the circumstances of the lost emails from [former IRS official Lois Lerner’s] computer,” according to prepared testimony by James Cole, the deputy attorney general. Mr. Cole is set to appear at a hearing scheduled for Thursday before a panel of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The Wall Street Journal reviewed his prepared testimony on Wednesday.

“Not even a smidgen of corruption” is being put on the back burner. Temporarily.

Safe bets: Eric Holder will A) announce in a few weeks that the investigation found that the lost emails are in line with President Obama’s earlier statement that the IRS trouble was merely the result of “boneheaded decisions” but there is no criminal wrongdoing; B) The DOJ will find plenty wrong and announce their findings in 919 days; Or C) Holder will figure out a way to pin the whole thing on that Nebraska farmer with the anti-Obama float.

At least this is a sign that the DOJ knows that the tale of this “lost” email stinks so bad that they’ll look suspect if they don’t at least pretend to reach for nose plugs like everybody else.
