Posted on 06/22/2014 7:39:52 AM PDT by RummyChick

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled its longtime relationship with an email-storage contractor just weeks after ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed.

The IRS signed a contract with Sonasoft, an email-archiving company based in San Jose, California, each year from 2005 to 2010. The company, which partners with Microsoft and counts The New York Times among its clients, claims in its company slogans that it provides “Email Archiving Done Right” and “Point-Click Recovery.” Sonasoft in 2009 tweeted, “If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to backup their servers why wouldn’t you choose them to protect your severs?

Ms Tucker seemed pretty young to give up the Government gravy train. I’m sure she had a lot of help and hush money to help with the decision. No doubt she will run for the Mayor of Austin for her next gig.

Good stuff, the law is very clear, but unfortunately rule 37 has nuanced holes that Hillary Clinton’s ass could drive through.

Key word...”AFTER” which would suggest they might still have them.

Even if there was more “public” awareness...

The more this administration and its agencies can stick it to the “man”...the more those people love it...

They do not care, nor do they want it to change...

So the people destroying the social and civil fabric in this country are not limited to the few elected to office...Or being appointed by those elected, and corrupted schmups we have in these offices these days...

But hey...preaching to the choir...

The COVER UP IS ALWAYS worse than the crime

Not in this case. What is on those emails apparently is far worse than the crimes of obstruction on justice and destruction of evidence. And it leads right to Caliphate Baraq.

Who can file RICO charges against this administration, or parts thereof?

Can this be done by ordinary citizens, various legal foundations, the aggrieved Tea Party organizations or officers?

This is certainly organized crime of the greatest sort.

I believe it’s even illegal to suggest a Federal tax strike, is it not? If so, then I’m certainly not suggesting it,.

But I do wonder what would happen if people quietly decided, each individually, to not bother filing next year, or not making quarterly tax payments? Is that what the 8 trillion rounds of ammo to the IRS and other agencies was really for?

The media isn’t ignoring it, they’re censoring it. They’re nothing more than criminal collaborators.

And they need to be held accountable too.

The migrations services and their vault claim says those e mails did not just go away, and even if there is a Raid5 or Raid6, there should be emails available from somewhere. NO WAY do you lose important e mails that are told employees DO NOT DELETE due to law.

You are simply not understanding. For some reason you seem to still think I am saying something about whether the emails have been deleted or not.

What I am telling you is that you are wrong to say Sonasoft has or had the archived email. They do not and they did not. You are wrong.
