WhiteHouse.gov Petition Calling on POTUS to Issue Executive Order to Search for Missing IRS Emails

Obama has a pen and he's not afraid to use it with regard to Executive Orders.

Here is one Executive Order consistent with his "I have got no patience with it, I will not tolerate it" position on the IRS investigation.  Federal agencies should be instructed to search their email archives for the lost email correspondences with Lois Lerner, former head of the IRS tax-exempt status department.  Emails to be searched should included those initiated by her and those initiated by individuals corresponding with her.

Update: IRS Has Lost More E-mails...

WhiteHouse.gov petition:

We petition the Obama administration to:

Issue an Executive Order to federal agencies to search their archived systems for emails from IRS agent Lois Lerner.

On Friday June 13, 2014 the IRS informed the House Ways and Means Committee that the that it could not recover two years of emails from Lois Lerner, the former head of the agency's tax-exempt status department.

To support the ongoing investigation, the President is urged to assist the recovery of the requested emails by directing the federal agencies in the executive branch to search their archived email systems for any emails that may have been part of a correspondence with Lois Lerner.

The retrieved emails will then be turned over to both the Congressional Committees investigating the IRS and the Justice Department.
