Skip to comments.Lerner on missing emails: 'Sometimes stuff just happens' (and to 6 others, too!)

The two years of missing emails from the account of Lois Lerner may be a problem for most people but for Lerner, it's just part of life.
"Sometimes, stuff just happens," Lerner wrote to an IT expert in 2011 who was trying to retreive the emails that were lost in her "hard drive crash." And no doubt, she's glad that's true.
In a letter to Congress, the IRS tried to explain the steps they took to retrieve the missing emails.
In a series of documents sent to Congress on Friday the traditional day for dumping bad news the IRS detailed the steps it took to try to account for the emails, including going to other agency employees and asking them to see if they had any messages stored that included Ms. Lerner as a sender of recipient.
And the IRS also released the back-and-forth between Ms. Lerner and Lillie Wilburn, field director for the IRS headquarters Customer Support Service Center.
I checked with the technician, and he still has your drive. He wanted to exhaust all avenues to recover the data before sending it to the hard drive cemetery, she wrote on July 20, 2011. Unfortunately, after receiving assistance from several highly skilled technicians including HP experts, he still cannot recover the data.
She mentioned one other possibility she was trying and promised an update.
Two weeks later, she said the drive had been sent to a forensic lab for a final attempt, and a few days after that Ms. Wilburn delivered the fatal news: The sectors on your hard drive were bad which made your data unrecoverable.

This is a very transparent lie.
I would get everyone under oath and start perjury prosecutions.
Obama is saving a Pardon for the very last if nothing else works
I think they have told this blatant lie as a challenge, and as a demonstration of the fact that their opposition is impotent.
I’m running up the B.S. flag!!!
Everybody keeps saying that, but what if they say no? Whats congress going to do,,,threaten to cut off funding? Libs and the media would have a field day with that. I can see the headlines,,,”GOP and Tea Party Destroying Our Intelligence Gathering Capabilities Over A Few Lousy, Lost Emails!!!” We had better get used to it. Like it or not, we will never see those emails.
Sometimes someone should go to prison for life unless she sings like a canary and fesses up about barry’s involvement.
Please! These "grown-up" 60's hippie radicals couldn't care less about getting arrested. They'll just "lawyer up" and be out in a couple of hours.
I cannot think of a more appropriate application of water-boarding than in this situation.
Thank God we have a bulldog of an Attorney General to get to the bottom......wait,hang on....
You say that as if Eric Holder can be relied upon to execute an arrest warrant against any of the perps.
They have decided that they are at zero risk for any penalty or punishment.
When did someone start snooping about Lois’s emails? So the cover up started soon after they began targeting Americans who wanted to join together to challenge unAmerican activities of the government. Now to find the cover up orders.
LL’s new mantra should be:
Sometimes, JAIL just happens.
She can add obstruction of justice to the charges against her now.
The low fo’s are gonna collapse this country.
