Rep. Jason Chaffetz: IRS testified that Lois Lernerís emails were archived [video]
Twitchy ^ | 06-13-2014

Posted on 06/13/2014 10:03:59 PM PDT by Kevin in California

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified before the House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee that it would take a long time to retrieve all of the Lois Lerner emails that were subpoenaed, but he never hinted that they had been “lost” in a computer crash or otherwise.

Rep Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) wasn’t buying that excuse then, and he’s posted the YouTube video to prove it.

It is impossible to lose two years worth of emails. Federal emails are backed up daily. Mirror servers are used.

Crimes are committed. No one is prosecuted. The obama regime is running a criminal syndicate. And no one steps forward to do anything about it.

It is truly disgusting that the level of the media lap-dog level has risen to this degree.

This should dominate the news along with five other corrupt items of the week and it is ignored.

Journalism is a scum occupation.

As you can see, the permanent bureaucracy of the US Government doesn’t give a sh** about the elected representatives of the USA. The are not afraid.

And why should they? They are, and have been, untouchable.

Katie Pavlich reports that only the e-mails that Lerner sent to outside agencies (ie WH, DoJ, etc.) were lost and all her other e-mails were not. Strangest “computer crash” I’ve ever heard of.

Long ago the FBI proved erasing emails is impossible.

The only recourse is to completely destroy the hard drive to be certain the emails are gone, however, it assumes that the person (Lois in this instance) merely sent all emails to herself, as there is at least one recipient for each of Lois' emails.

Time consuming but all that is necessary is for everyone to do a search of their own email list for anything from Lois!

2 years of data loss means the loss was recent (you can’t lose future data)

A hardware failure would have generated a trail documenting the failure and replacement of the hardware, and likely data restore to the failed disk. Hardware support persons or contractors will have artifacts documenting the failure, a few examples: support tickets, hardware monitoring logs, or emails.

Make them prove there was a recent failure. Make them explain why certain data could not be restored. etc.

With this administration, whatever isn’t overwhelmingly incompetent is overwhelming corrupt, and what isn’t overwhelmingly corrupt is overwhelmingly incompetent...and both in many cases in their attempts to cover up one or the other. One total disaster after another. Obamacare. Fast and Furious. IRS abuses. Iraq. Syria. Ukraine. The amount of damage that is being done is incalculable.

  Yes - certainly they know which contractors they paid. There must be some sort of dated documentation - unless the entire incident is a fabrication. The lack of any documentation would indicate that the entire hard drive crash story was a lie.

It is insulting for them to think that anyone would believe this crash tale.
If a mail server crashed that badly they would lose more than just one persons email.

If by "strange" you mean hilariously fabricated, we agree. The emails sent to other agencies would have been on several destination servers, not the IRS server at all. In addition to which there would have been RAID-5 or RAID-6 fail-over redundant disk arrays on all of them, as well as daily, weekly, and monthly backups on digital tape.

This is the kind of crap an administration feeds to a constituency for which it has no respect. And why should they? A posed photo of the National Security team supposedly viewing the realtime assassination of bin Laden was accepted by these morons. A story that al Qaeda linked militias showed up outside of the US Mission with automatic weapons, RPGs, and mortars in response to a YouTube Video was regarded as gospel ... and then when the story fell apart, the fact that the administration never believed in the Single-Video-Theory and knew it was terrorism all along was taken with a straight face. A government that is monitoring the excruciating minutiae of the lives of 310 million citizens is unable to pick up the phone and call a relative handful of insurance companies to get solid figures on the number of new health-care employees -- and nobody questions this except right-wing nutjobs.

It is literally impossible to insult the intelligence of their parties base -- the 47%ers -- and they damn well know it.

There is no legal authority to force the “justice” department to prosecute criminals. The only thing that will stop these criminals is a military coup. And that won’t happen.

Hint : RICO criminal violation charges can be filed by anyone!

If there are exemptions for government departments and employees in those RICO laws, nobody's mentioned them.

Of course they are lying, but in a hearing, wouldn't that otherwise be known as perjury? There are lots of people that should be doing time, but the GOPe will do their best to make sure they all walk.

Oh, we totally agree. And that goes for the rest of your post as well. Those who buy these lies have zero respect for themselves much less for anyone else. Maybe the most absurd thing about those libtards is that they expect to get respect from others. They're hitting a dry well if they look to me for any.

See, this is a prime example of how people’s opinions of the media get distorted. I worked in the media for over a decade before calling it quits. I probably worked with 50 or more journalists/editors from all walks of life and 4 different countries; and I can tell you from personal experience one thing.

You have absolutely no reason to hold such a high opinion of journalists. They are,as a group, far worse than you imagine.

If a journalist tells you that water is wet, check it yourself. Because odds are the story on it was typed nearly verbatim from a press release written by someone who never touched water or a government agency trying to spin it to match an agenda.

They are only recoverable if the government wants to recover them. The “government” does not want to recover them.

It’s kind of like accidentally finding all of those files in Hillary Clinton’s closet. If they were not found accidentally they would be gone forever.

NO! The Republicans are too timid to do anything about it other that blast the problem with “hot air.”

I also feel that the NSA has enough “dirt” on members of the Republican party to prevent any of them to do anything.

The “proof is in the pudding” and can be shown by their inaction to do anything about any scandal we have seen by this administration to date. The only thing we have seen so far has been their mouths moving.....nothing else.
