(POOL/CNN) - Thousands of e-mails that are part of a congressional investigation into the IRS are lost because of a computer crash.

The e-mails belong to former IRS official Lois Lerner.

They were from January 2009 to April of 2011.

Lerner's e-mails were subpoenaed as part of an investigation into the agency's targeting of tea party and other interest groups.

The IRS says it will produce the e-mails from this time period using the files of other people.

Republicans expressed concern that this will delay the investigation.
