WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker John Boehner said the Obama administration is not helping Congress get to the truth over the IRS' close scrutiny of conservative groups and the agency's recent revelation that it lost emails related to that probe.

The Ohio Republican said that even though President Obama has promised to cooperate, the administration has not been helpful.

The IRS said it lost some emails by Lois Lerner, who headed the division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The agency blames that on Lerner's computer crashing — a contention Republicans have said they don't believe.

On Tuesday, Boehner said the IRS explanation "doesn't pass the straight face test."
