(CNN) – Backup copies of emails from former IRS official Lois Lerner may exist, according to House Oversight Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA.

The new information comes from a closed committee with IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Thomas Kane. It’s also a contrast to testimony from IRS Commissioner John Koskinen who said the emails were lost when Lerner’s computer crashed.

Lerner led the division of the IRS that targeted groups claiming tax-exempt status.

These missing emails were dated around the time these groups faced scrutiny.
