June 27, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement praising House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.) and Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Charles Boustany (R-La.) for subpoenaing the missing IRS emails to other federal offices, including the White House:
"We are pleased that the House Ways and Means Committee is stepping up its game, and searching for the missing Lerner and other IRS emails on the servers of other federal departments, agencies and offices, including the White House, Department of Justice, Department of Treasury, the Federal Election Commission, and others. Unless there was a massive cover up, the missing emails should still be on those servers.
"When the administration again stonewalls these requests, Chairman Camp needs to be prepared to enforce these subpoenas in federal court. Waiting for Eric Holder to appoint a special prosecutor or the U.S. Attorney's Office to enforce contempt citations is no longer a valid course of action."
