Yep. Noticed the dweeb. Funny stuff, the IRS targeting cons and getting away with it.

The left only wants justice if it helps THEM..liberals love the fact that Conservatives got screwed over, they would be screaming like crazy if it happened to them..that is why I say karma is a well, ya know..I just hope that one day, if a Republican becomes President, we do the same thing back to them..that to me would be great justice and also great karma..they laugh now but just you watch when its done to them


The media would scream if republicans did this to democrats. All the alphabet channels aren’t reporting this. I would be mad if republicans did this. I want the IRS agency (not people but the agency) to die a quick painful death. Do away with the IRS.

yet we are supposed to retain our records for seven (7) years?

Hire a record-keeping company, and fire them just before your audit.

Democrats were openly encouraging harassment by the IRS, and Norton asks if there is any “evidence.”

Cummings and Norton should just come out and say it already “We hate Conservatives and we enjoyed screwing them over.” I would almost have a drop of respect for them if they just said that..but you know what, karma is a bitch and one day they will get theirs

K. replies to Norton how important it is that all taxpayers realize they’ll be treated the same and fairly, regardless of their politics. “It’s important to maintain that confidence.”

Excuse me while I choke with laughter.

My question is: How does anyone in the IRS IT department have a job today?

I do believe Koskinen when he says that they searched everywhere for LL’s emails. If they were found from that time period, they were then destroyed...

No other believable explanation...

FLASHBACK: WilmerHale Gets Obama’s Church Off IRS Hook (Wilkins now chief counsel for IRS)
The American Lawyer ^ | May 22, 2008 | Zach Lowe
Posted on May 16, 2013 at 9:15:49 AM CDT by maggief

Lawyers from Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr have won the dismissal of an IRS case against United Church of Christ, Sen. Barack Obama’s denomination.

The IRS initiated an investigation early this year after a speech by Obama at a 50th anniversary celebration of the church last June. It was a reference by Obama to his presidential candidacy in a talk otherwise focused on faith that caught the agency’s attention.

(snip)

Obama has been a member of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago — a UCC congregation — for more than 20 years. The church has been in the headlines for several months now as the congregation lead by the controversial Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

WilmerHale was retained after church officials interviewed several firms, according to partner William Wilkins. “We were so interested in the case we offered to do it pro bono,” Wilkins says.

Rep. Elijah Cummings LIES about ‘lost’ emails under Bush admin; Dana Perino RESPONDS

At the Oversight committee hearing on Lois Lerner’s lost emails, Elijah Cummings was making the point that the emails being lost by the federal government isn’t something new, that it’s happened before, and he used the Bush administration as an example:

Stephen Hayes ‏@stephenfhayes 17m

#IRS head John Koskinen says he didn’t tell anyone about missing emails because he was advised not to tell anyone. Think about that claim.

Mica doesn't seem to understand what the purpose of the software contractor was. The idea that they would be holding emails is laughable.

We need more IT questions and how the backup systems work. Emails are official correspondence. They must be retained by law. I worked for 36 years in the federal government. Backups are done daily. Network servers are backed-uped daily and sent off-site to be archived. This is done in case a catastrophic event happens.

If IRS is following federal law on records retention, those emails exist somewhere. If they haven't been following the law, then heads should roll.

Ellenor Holmes Norton. Now there’s a genuine idiot for ya. She claims there’s not a scintilla of evidence? The whole matter is about them destroying and hiding evidence. I guess she can’t understand that the missing emails is evidence in itself that there’s been a crime committed.

This horses ass should be a laughingstock not a congressman?

So Lois Lerner went to extraordinary lengths to make sure that the hard drive was unreadable. The IT guys at the CI division said “bad sectors” make the information unrecoverable, so they took an item that was pertinent to an ongoing investigation and destroyed it.

Got it. The IRS made a paper trail, in only this case, unlike any other typical hard drive failure, that showed that the drive was beyond recovery, and then destroyed it and scattered the remnants to the winds.

“We determined you should not have any evidence based on our own in house investigation, documented our efforts to cover our asses and then destroyed it.”

It was important enough to document in a special way, but not important enough not to destroy.

The arrogance is incredible.
