Skip to comments.IRS Claims to Have Lost Over Two Years of Lois Lerner's Emails, Will Networks Report?
Posted on 06/13/2014 8:19:41 PM PDT by chessplayer
Apparently two years of Lois Lerners emails have been lost, according to the IRS. The disappearance of the emails caused House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp to blast: The fact that I am just learning about this, over a year into the investigation, is completely unacceptable and now calls into question the credibility of the IRSs response to Congressional inquiries. There needs to be an immediate investigation and forensic audit by Department of Justice as well as the Inspector General.
Camps June 13 statement went on to elaborate why those missing emails are so crucial to the investigation:
Just a short time ago, Commissioner Koskinen promised to produce all Lerner documents. It appears now that was an empty promise. Frankly, these are the critical years of the targeting of conservative groups that could explain who knew what when, and what, if any, coordination there was between agencies. Instead, because of this loss of documents, we are conveniently left to believe that Lois Lerner acted alone.
In my best Church Lady voice “Well isn’t that conveeeenient????”
Just another one of the massive treasons, scandals and coverups that will be swept under the rug by the praetorian media.
Lois Learner needs to go before the board , the water board .
Forget e-mail , forget lying testimonies and other diversions and distractions . get the truth , the whole truth and nothing but the truth . Or pay the cost.
Florida has a crime known as “despoilation of evidence”.
Also, in most jurisdictions, if the keeper of the document doesn’t, the presumption is that the document was as the plaintiff claimed and it was ‘disappeared’.
Happens with corrupt governments all the time.
The problem is that the IRS official who testified in March said the emails are archived.
Do they really think that anyone will believe this?
“They’ve been taken off and stored in servers” -IRS Commissioner.
The NSA needs to redirect it’s efforts towards finding out what our government is doing. They should dedicate the Utah Data Center to this job.
JUST FIRE ALL OF THEM .. since we can’t determine who said what to who ..!!!!
They no longer even care if their excuse is idiotic. They know Obama and Holder and the media will never let them be convicted of anything.
“Just do what you want no matter how crooked and your back is covered.”
I’m thinking of moving to North Korea.
Less lying, a little more transparency..
Yeah, well I lost my tax return so fk you, IRS. Right?
DISMANTLE the socialist’s GESTAPO, the policing arm of the plundering “progressives”.
Socialism Is Legal Plunder - Bastiat
BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
“Didnt some of Nixons associates go to jail?”
Yes, but remember Nixon was a Republican. The liberal double standard goes back a long, long way.
Yes, at a minimum. These rotting fish have many treasonous heads.
The soap box is alive and well. The ballot box is just getting started.
live - free - republic
We’re deep into Obstruction of Justice territory here - I smell a Special Prosecutor......
a NEW RECORD has been set.
I think we need to congratulate them on their CHUTZPAH!!..and then FILE CHARGES
Sorry, I lost the receipts for all those deductions.
They’d accept that explanation, right?
So far only FOX.
Lying to Congress is a crime....and this is one that doesn’t pass the giggle test
But FOX lies, and the other networks tell the truth, but, the government is telling us that they lost the emails, so it must be true, only if FOX says its true and the government says its true, but the other networks ignore it, than it must not be important. Yet, one would think that losing evidence in an investigation is important. So the other network, therefore must merely be more WISER than FOX is. There are things, I guess, that we don’t really NEED to know about. It is so comforting for them to sort it all out for us so that we don’t have to do any real thinking.
When I was working in industry, IT would back up the servers daily. We were never a day away from resurrecting any data. I find it hard to believe that the Government, which wrote most of the standards for the computer industry, would not follow the same practice. Also, every message received and sent by Lerner were sent and received by someone else. Simply subpoena any e-mail from anyone in Government from or to Lerner. And finally, having some expertise in this, I find it almost impossible to believe that even data that has been erased and scrubbed cannot be restored by the application of some of the FBI’s software tools.
“When I was working in industry, IT would back up the servers daily. “
Yes, that is what I thought. If an employee’s computer crashes, there is always ways to retrieve the data.
What a bunch of liars.
These emails must incriminate the President. Otherwise why would they risk the lie: “Sorry. We lost them”?
But if you lose that receipt from 5 years ago.....
Is anyone surprised??????
“Were deep into Obstruction of Justice territory here - I smell a Special Prosecutor......”
If I’m not mistaken, special prosecutors are appointed by the Attorney General. Good luck with that.
Are they really going to get away with this?
Congress could appoint one, but good luck on that one.
Didn't Lerner use a non-govt. email for her sneaky doings?
Perhaps her gmail or whatever account wasn't archived by the IT dept.?
Ask the NSA for back-up.
“You — go lose those emails and see to it that that computer crashes. Do I make myself clear?”
Mr. Snowden, where are you? Help!!
Even dumb computer me know they're around someplace. try cc
When officials are handcuffed and doing the perp walk on national tv then we will see co operation
Companies such as "Iron Mountain" specialise in this area.
If there is an issue of recovery, get the forensic people involved - latent evidence is always around (e.g., date/time-stamps on access, hashed ID on computers, ... ).
TREY GOWDY....STEP ON IT!!
A US special prosecutor can only be appointed by the Justice Department head, Eric Holder. Fat chance that'll ever happen.
