IRS Emails Backed Up by Outside Email Archiving Company
Freedom Outpost ^ | 6/21/14 | Tim Brown

Posted on 06/21/2014 3:11:27 PM PDT by blueyon

On Friday, Mac Slavo reported on Congressman Darrell Issa's (R-CA) statement in which he called the Internal Revenue Service's claim that Lois Lerner's hard drive crash resulted in a loss of emails "ridiculous." Most of us know that information from crashed hard drives can be recovered, though it costs a lot of money. However, as Mac pointed out, we could simply obtain a copy from the National Security Agency since they are collecting this kind of information. But something more telling has come to light: The IRS uses as an email archiving company to back up its emails.

That's right, Sonasoft, whose slogan is "email archiving done right" touts the IRS as a customer.

In an incredible coincidence, as we will be told, the outside company’s copies of the emails were accidentally destroyed when their server crashed. Nothing to do about it, nothing to see here...

A woman who works for Sonasoft called in to the Mark Levin show last week. She first explained that her company contracted to archive IRS e-mails. She then said that the IRS never contacted them about having any problems. Which they would have done if they had ever had a data loss problem.

The only catch is the likelihood the Republicans don’t have the stones to do anything about it.

No, the risk would be to allow anyone at all from the government even near Sonasoft

Sonasoft is jumping up and down yelling “subpoena our records! We’ve got the e-mails” and the Republicans are thinking “hmmm, we need to look into corrupt peanut vendors in MLB next week.”

Sonasoft provides disaster recovery solutions for Microsoft Servers that lowers the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Sonasoft’s disk-to-disk system allows data to be stored on the same server, DAS (Direct Attached Storage), NAS (Network Attached Storage), or IP SAN (IP Storage Area Network) using Sonasoft’s software as often as once per minute.

Before we get too excited, the contract looks like $13,000 which seems awfully low for backing up all of the IRS emails.

I’m sure someone from Sonasoft would be glad to testify. They have to be called to The Hill to do it though. Better yet, just bring the e-mails.

It might be time for Boehner to offer her limited transactional immunity for her testimony. If it is discovered that she lies in her testimony, the immunity disappears.

It would be a disservice to the company not to allow them to testify and show that their services are top rate. The downside of this being ignored is that the company gets a hit to their credibility . . . because it is then implied that they lost the emails that were backed up, supposedly by them.

The question is, for how long have they had the contract to do these backups. Maybe they just started this year.

No kidding. Jail. But he has only been with the IRS since December, 2013. Before that he was with Freddie Mac. He even worked with the Teamsters Pension Fund! I want to know why the committed didn’t drag the bums who were in charge at the time out of retirement and grill them, too! And why not call IRS Information Technology officers? They were beating up a guy who had absolutely nothing to do with anything!

So here’s the next phase. The NSA had a full year to ensure every trace of Lerner’s “missing” emails have been wiped from the ether. If by some miracle Sonasoft has one single IRS email Obama or Holder will swarm in and declare executive privilege and the issue will vanish like Fast and Furious.

Even if it was only on her hard drive - she had to send the e-mails to someone, didn’t she? Why can’t we recover most of them from other IRS employees?

Supposedly it was only the e-mails sent to outside agencies that were lost. And the WH has said they looked and Lerner never sent them an e-mail. And if you don’t believe that you’re a racist!

Corporate emails are kept on a server . . . not an individual’s personal computer (unless they are using their personal account to conduct government business - and that would be illegal) - so this whole hard drive thing is bogus - and the sad thing is that even the lowliest janitor can see it, but our rhinos in congress are so afraid of the big bad dhims that they are cowering and peeing all over themselves.

All the president’s men that were involved with Watergate (the cover up) went to jail . . . and this (and so much more of nobama’s regime goes far beyond Watergate, and with this one maybe no one died - while with the others, people did.

That’s right. It has been a long time since I read all there was to read about that. I remember what I concluded when it was all very fresh ... Hillary had Vince Foster killed. People have been convicted of murder on far less circumstantial evidence.
