EPA Investigates, Clears Self in Pebble Mine Probe

Despite acknowledging it could not obtain more than two years of emails from a key employee, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Inspector General on Wednesday effectively cleared the EPA of allegations of bias in its quest to preemptively kill a proposed mine in southwest Alaska.

The troubling details of the missing emails raise charges of an EPA whitewashing, a scenario and an allegation all-too-familiar in the Obama administration. ...

More than 20 different Obama administration officials have lost or destroyed email communications.

Arguably the most egregious example was the lost emails of Lois Lerner, the former IRS agent who led the office accused of targeting nonprofit conservative groups.
The Pebble Mine was a real piece of work by the EPA. The EPA decided when it first heard of the proposed mine that they were going to do anything possible to squelch it. They fomented citizen and Native American opposition, on the sly through their bought and paid for NGOs and consultants, and then, when evidence of their collusion began to surface, the email evidence suddenly "disappeared" along with the EPA employee who headed up the program.

EPA delenda est.
