Internal Revenue Service

District of Columbia
Original Set Aside:
Lois was too stupid to realize that her “lost” emails were archived by SonaSoft. She will need a case of Depends when she finds out SonaSoft has those “lost” emails.
This was only a one year contract from 2008 to 2009 per the above agreement.
Didn’t SonaSoft claim in 2010 that they were servicing the IRS?
Since it was a sole source contract maybe they continued the effort on a year to year basis; just my guess; that would be the easiest way for the IRS to maintain the service without disrupting their work flow.
What happens when the Justice Dept. or the President himself calls SonaSoft and tells them to lose the emails.
I’m starting to believe the rumor that GOPe was in on this too since they can’t be this stupid. They should have already locked down SonaSoft and retrieved backups yet the web is spreading the word and giving them time to kill these files as well.
Question to Commissioner Koskinen: Do you still use the services of SonaSoft company? If not, when did those services terminate and WHO do you now use for those services?
If they kill the files there then it is pretty much not arguable that crimes occurred. Even for a liberal. though they would. But it won’t fly.
If SonaSoft claims that they have “lost” the IRS emails then that would spell doom for a company whose main product is the ARCHIVING of those emails. I don’t see how they can say they lost the emails and still stay in business. OTOH, if they can provide the Lois Lerner emails, that would demonstrate how great their services are and bring in lots of business.
There are a BUCH of IRS officials in violation of the Federal Records Retention Act. That is their excuse.
I’d subpoena the Sonasoft president and start asking him about his government contract.
note the commissioner said they had different/ better access to emails of OCC
The IRS chief admitted obstruction when he said “No emails have gone missing SINCE the investigation started.” Oh, but thousands went missing that were sent BEFORE the investigation started.
I can’t believe the gopE was very upset over the feds shutting down the tea party groups.
This is specialized knowledge. Perhaps a few IT guys were aware of this contract and this software; however it runs on the servers, not on client desktops. A paper pusher would not know what happens to the email, and where it is stored. Many think that if they delete an email it gets deleted. That's not always so. MS Exchange is a complex system, and one can insert transport agents into many places of that system. Most people do not know what servers they connect to, and what are the backup procedures on those, and where offline backups are stored, and for how long. Managers of high rank are sometimes sufficiently arrogant to not ask the IT people about such details. After all, in order to ask a correct question you must know most of the answer already. People who are trained on simplistic "Press DEL and the email is gone" cannot even imagine that the email is not really gone.
Crash of a client's PC has no effect on the data. MS Exchange stores emails in MS SQL Server databases; many such databases can exist, and they can be all synchronized (replicated) for many reasons. For example, you cannot have 100,000 employees, who reside all over the planet, connect to one server. So there are multiple edge transport servers, hub transport servers, client access servers and mailbox servers. Just look here.
Believe me, SonaSoft NO LONGER HAS THE EMAILS!!!! The FBI has probably swept in there to gather the files to protect the FACIST DICTATOR!!!
Congress does NOT have the POWER to do any of that.
