Skip to comments.Here’s how the IRS lost emails from key witness Lois Lerner (media in full coverup mode)
Posted on 06/17/2014 8:50:25 PM PDT by chessplayer
On Friday, the Internal Revenue Service informed Congressional investigators that it could not recover two years of emails from Lois Lerner, the former head of the agency's tax-exempt status department. Lerner has been at the center of the investigation into how and why the IRS applied additional scrutiny to the tax-exempt applications of Tea Party-affiliated organizations.

From whom are they covering it up? The cops?
This thing really, really, smells.
I’d bet only a few exist who are stupid enough to believe this smoldering cowflop...
Subpoena all the emails from others during this same period of time, if hers are the only ones missing, then claim BS.
Probably true, but many others just put their heads in the sand, or maybe they put their heads up somewhere else, that I will not name at the moment, but they don't care, as long as they get their welfare checks, food stamps and Obama phones.
Subpoena White House emails from/to Lerner. Bet they have been wiped from the WH computers, too...
“Id bet only a few exist who are stupid enough to believe this smoldering cow flop..”
There is one group who will hold up their arms next to Obama’s face on TV when he’s lying to them, compare the color, and say yup! das my boy! Now send me summoe O’ dat “free $hit! I be right back jus as soon as I commit some sort of crime, sep’ ifn’ I be gettn’ shot!
You know, Adobe, that RAM-sucking hog POS that I won't allow on any of my machines or my friends' machines...
Hey. Phil - when I want your opinion on a computer issue, I'll beat it out of you with a nail-studded baseball bat.
I was around 21-22 years old in ‘73, ‘74
The Watergate hearings were on the telly 24/7.
I was hoping for the same diversion this Summer.
But, alas, the MSM ain’t what it used to be.
I’m stuck with “The Rifleman”
If only the Pubbies would refute this garbage. Doesn’t look like that’s going to happen :(
Lerner. Lois Lerner?
Never heard of her.
If this were the case, might there be a footrace by some "in the loop" to contact the authorities in order to secure a plea deal?
Don't know, just guessing here.
Everyone has abandoned their true common sense in order to protect Obama.
It's almost as if there is no crime anymore that our media is willing to hold a politician accountable for.
And... they are willing to turn on any ordinary citizen who yearns for the old days of the rule of law.
Executive Privilege... just like they claimed on 'Fast and Furious' after they said the 'Executive' had no involvement.
Laws don't mean squat anymore. These people will do what ever the hell they feel like doing. Challenge them, and you get hit with the Race Card and Crissy Mathews dog whistles which only he can hear.
We're screwed. The mainstream won't do their job. Most people don't give a damn just as long as the checks keep coming.
If the mailbox got too big, email would need to be deleted or moved to a local folder on the user's computer.
Note the use of the term "folder". That's an end-user syntactic sugary term, abhorred by anyone who's actually aware of computing technology. The proper term was, is and will always be "directory". The system call primitive is, of course, "opendir(2)", specified by POSIX 1-2001. A manpage states:
The opendir() function opens a directory stream corresponding to the directory name, and returns a pointer to the directory stream. The stream is positioned at the first entry in the directory.
Yes, it's a subtle thing but is calls into question the credibility of the entire piece. The author, Philip Bump, writes about politics for The Fix. He previously wrote for The Wire, the news blog of The Atlantic magazine. He has contributed to The Daily Beast, The Atlantic, The Daily, and the Huffington Post. Philip is based in New York City. That leftist has no clue and obviously suffered a severe bump on his little head.
The Washington Post has thrown in with Obama, cashing in whatever credibility it earned running Nixon out of town, for better or worse.
They’ve reduced themselves to actively protecting a tinpot dictator.
Look at it this way.
If any American worker at any American company got hauled into court and told a judge that he’d ‘lost’ all of his emails, the IT director would, under subpoena, be able to produce tens if not hundreds of copies of each email. Pretty quick.
Those emails will be found. They’ll be challenged eight ways to Sunday, and it’ll be like Broward County in December of 2000. And it’ll be 2018 by the time we know whatever we’re supposed to know...
But by then we’ll be overrun by the Children of La Raza, and the leader of ISIS will be seeing us in New York.
This lie serves the purpose of showing Congress and, by extension, the nation how impotent they are. It's defiantly taunting them to do something about it and Republicans are understandably reluctant to join a battle they can't win; they have, after all, proven themselves cowards already.
Apparently, he also worked as a "senior designer" at Adobe Systems (of document layer fame). So, I suspect he probably remembers what opendir() is.
It doesn’t take a crystal ball to confirm that your prediction is right on point......but the “low information crowd” is too busy texting meaningless nonsense to each other to have a clue about the world and what will happen to them when their i-phone tries to execute them........
They should cut off funding for the IRS until all documents are provided.
Everyone above a certain level should be fired for incompetence if the emails are truly lost. I think the IRS assumes the worst if a taxpayer loses his documentation.
Camp Issa need to subpoena the firewall and exchange server logs form 2009-2011. It will show all activity of Lerner email communications (to from IPs host names). From there subpoena all emails from each recipient.
The news went after Nixon. Why are they not doing the same with Obama?
This fool writes that inbound go to the exchange server and outbound go to the internet (to excuse the loss on cyberspace). Um, all go to exchange first. Exchange then looks at address and routes them internally or externally through gateway router and out to the internet. All emails though are processed initially via the exchange server server and logged.
Or as another FREeeper put it: “Obama just has all the rotten luck in the world. Just when he and his admin were going to hand it all over, this had to go and happen. Talk about dumb luck.”
How many understand how that data is stored?
I guess they want us to believe that Joe's Towing has a more robust IT infrastructure than the IRS.
My guess is that better than 50% of the population is aware that this is total, undiluted bullsh!t.
Sen. Joe McCarthy was correct, if you view "communists" as a subset of "Satan's minions" along with their fellow travelers, the Muslim infiltrators.
Either that or the press is terrified of the
(Man, am I cynical this morning!)
However, there are a majority on the left that will support this lie because they believe that the government SHOULD BE USED to oppress those who disagree with them,
and they applaud leftists in gov’t that do so and get away with it.
It’s icing on the cake that the lie is blatant and that nothing can/will be done about it.
Yes. That is one of my major peeves. You'd be surprised though, at how many windows "administrators" who never use the proper term. Well maybe not. Personally, it annoys the hel out of me.
I'm guessing so. My current mailbox has maill going back to 2006. I have older stuff archived that goes back to the early 90s in standard mailbox format.
Granted, I am a professional at this stuff. I've managed to maintain my bookmarks since moved from Mosaic to Netscape. Maintaining data integrity isn't really that hard folks.
No emails were LOST.
If they do not exist at this time, then they were hunted down and deleted. This would have been a monstrous undertaking. Hundreds if not thousands of servers would have had to have been searched. Offline as well as online resources would have had to have been searched and altered.
The breadth of this is impressive and also highly illegal.
Something was missed. It always is when it comes to computers. Let the hunt begin...
you can recover emails from a crashed hard drive. Why is nobody interviewing the private companies that do this for a living?
The progressives will stop at nothing to purge conservatives from the political stage. They want a one party, socialist democratic nation.
the main stream media is too busy using the OTHER words for the first letters of “main stream media”. (not safe for work lifestyle)
There is no media. There is only crony leftists. The media is nyc based and those brainless talking heads want to go to all the cool parties. (ie when Oreily faked a controversy with Michael moore)
On the lighter brighter side, the Publishing Industry set up a system of ‘prizes’ to compensate for the lack of trust and respect from readers. It appears to be working... the press still feels good about their incompetence and bias.
If the Windiots ever get to a command line, the command to get a listing is, of course, DIR. How they can reconcile the name of that command with the term, "folder" is beyond my comprehension. There is a fold command to wrap input lines to a specified length but it has nothing to do with so-called "folders". :)
$ apropos fold | head -1
fold (1) - wrap each input line to fit in specified width
“Plea deal”? LOL Surely you jest, my FRiend!
They don’t need no stinkin’ plea deal. Nothing will happen to any of them. Nada, zilch, not now - not never.
Obama is the teflon don and though we believe these emails would lead directly to him, no one will lift a finger to do anything about it. I read everyone is scared of him because the NSA has something on everyone. I doubt that but something is keeping people quiet.
