Lois Lerner's Hard Drive "Crashed" Ten Days After House Ways & Means Chairman Made First Inquiry
Ace of Spades ^ | June 20, 2014 | Staff

Posted on 06/21/2014 1:46:15 PM PDT by QT3.14

The timing is not merely suspicious, it is damning.

[T]he alleged disappearance of Ms. Lerner's hard drive—and the fact that the missing conversations are those the former IRS director had with people outside the IRS—has suddenly resurrected, with force, the explosive possibility that she was chatting with Democrats who mattered.

There's plenty of reason to believe she was. Just last week Congress discovered (via a subpoena to the Justice Department) emails showing that Ms. Lerner had conversations with Justice prosecutors about investigating conservative nonprofits. Who else in the Obama administration was Ms. Lerner talking to?

I'm omitting all of the correspondence between Lerner and Congressional Democrats -- but check the piece to refresh your memory.

Here's the chronology of this "crash:"

The communists Democrats have everything covered. Issa might as well quit because of the power of the King Obama empire. America is in a dictatorship and may never recover.

Lois Lerner’s husband is Michael Miles, a Washington-based corporate insurance lawyer and partner at the politically-connected law firm Sutherland, Asbill & Brennan. They now share a $2.4 million residence near Bethesda, Maryland.

Miles previously served as an attorney in the Office of the Chief Counsel of the IRS.

Chronology is irrelevant, because they think this is like the little kid begging for a toy or treat. No matter how often the kid asks the answer is going to be “no”, so the parent doesn’t bother offering explanations or “chronologies”. Obama has decided that these emails will not be provided “because I said so”.

There will be no special prosecutor or any other prosecution as long as Obama is president.

The Commissioner of Internal Revenue (or IRS Commissioner) is the head of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), a bureau within the United States Department of the Treasury.

The office of Commissioner was created by Congress by the Revenue Act of 1862. The Commissioner is appointed by the President, with the consent of the Senate, for a five-year term.

Daniel Werfel (Acting) May 22, 2013 December 23, 2013
John Koskinen December 23, 2013

You have to wonder if Koskinen was brought in to "manage" this. He's a pretty good liar, from what I saw of his joust with Dave Camp. But he's still a liar...

The emails ARE saved on the system. And backed up every week. And the backups stored off-site every month.

That was my first thought when I saw this guy.

He's an exceptionally good liar (to those who are clueless that is). Obama dumped the others because he needs a super slick liar to protect him from being compared to Nixon.

Yup. They will be found.

And I think it will spark a conflagration. No one likes the IRS. And they will be shown to be the iron fist of a dictatorship. Americans just might wake up and realize what we have become. I pray there is a reckoning.

Listening to Paul Ryan interrogate the IRS commissioner it is pretty clear that the IRS has absolutely no fear whatsoever of Congress, and especially the Republicans in Congress. The IRS can pretty much do or say anything they want, and there is no downside for them to say up-yours to the US Congress.

This whole conversation around “crashed hard drives” has as much validity as oButthole’s birth certificate.

These emails all exist. The IRS has a network. They have email servers. There are copies of these emails on everyone else’s hard drives. There are 50 copies of every email floating around somewhere.

Gutless RINO’s do nothing. Scum.

Exactly, if there was any intention of nailing the regime or the IRS on this, they certainly wouldn’t be talking about “hard drives”.

This situation clearly calls for water boarding. It’s the only way you’ll get the truth out of Lois Lerner.

However, what it demonstrates is that the IRS is not to be trusted. It should be abolished and a flat tax inaugurated that would be paid by every person in the country. You live here, and you pay the same percentage that everyone else pays.

It would be great to see lobbyists and tax lawyers forced to find honest employment.

They’re lying. If a drive crashes, them everything on it is unreadable.
Also, all mail is sent to, from, and kept on servers. They really take us for fools.
Actually, they’re right - half the public voted for them.

Of course it was! Sometime after Jan 17, someone will find them just like hitlery’s files in the Oval Orifice. By then POTUS Cruz’s crew will be working 120 hours a week to get EOs ready to countermand nobama’s mountain of poop EOs.

A special prosecutor a.) must be approved by the President and b.) appointed by the Attorney General.

Good luck with that.

Yep, if the drive didn’t crash until the questions from Congress, then they certainly didn’t “recycle” it until after the questions from Congress.
