This story failed the smell test before Obama ever even dismissed it as a “phony scandal.” The nausea factor has not made it impossible to dig into further without a thick application of Mentholatum under the nose.

By the way, “criminal investigation” is Obama admin legalese for “not a smidgen of corruption”:

The IRS’s inspector general confirmed Thursday it is conducting a criminal investigation into how Lois G. Lerner’s emails disappeared, saying it took only two weeks for investigators to find hundreds of tapes the agency’s chief had told Congress were irretrievably destroyed.

Investigators have already scoured 744 backup tapes and gleaned 32,774 unique emails, but just two weeks ago they found an additional 424 tapes that could contain even more Lerner emails, Deputy Inspector General Timothy P. Camus told the House Oversight Committee in a rare late-night hearing meant to look into the status of the investigation.

“There is potential criminal activity,” Mr. Camus said.

Remember when the IRS commissioner, the smug John Koskinen, testified that IRS backup tapes for emails in question from around the time Lois Lerner was doing her thing didn’t exist? He was lying or doesn’t have a firm grip on how his agency operates:

But under questioning from Mr. Chaffetz, Mr. Camus said it took him only two weeks to track down the backup tapes, and when he asked the IRS depository for them, the workers there said they’d never been contacted by the agency itself.

Republicans said that was stunning because IRS Commissioner John Koskinen repeatedly assured Congress the emails were irretrievably lost.

Here’s one of Lerner’s emails:

That kind of astute observation and apparently more “team player” efforts earned Lerner almost $130,000 just in bonuses in a period from 2010 to 2013.

But remember, it was just some “folks” in Cincinnati who made “boneheaded decisions” for no particular reason:
