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 Lerners 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 wouldnt you choose them to protect your severs?

Prison is the only thing that will stem the tide of lawlessness from this Government.
Special Council NOW and the perp walk for many who obstruct justice.
Obama’s Blackness will matter little in the open court of law.
Justice must be openly pursued and the public must watch.
As the contracted e mail archiver there has to be ‘by law’ a paper copy of the e mails that Sonasoft was responsible for in that time frame....because they were being paid to do the e mail protection. If they did not do it....that has nothing to do with what they should have done.
But wait a minute here.. What's WORSE, mass black civil disturbance or Obama's continued widespread destruction of America both domestically and abroad?
I say, confront Obama with impeachment and/or criminal prosecution and deal with the backlash as it comes.

Let there be a “blacklash”. As we have seen before they will burn down their own places (and this time we tell our politicians NO money for the animals). Once they are done with their own areas and start to trounce other area’s, they will be shot. I know I am not letting some racist bastards damage my property or assault me.
Kickbacks! Oh, yeah. It’s pretty much guaranteed that there are Kenyan/dimokrat kickbacks involved in all these contracts since 2009. Assuming otherwise would mean not paying attention for the past five years. That’s why we can’t seem to cut feral spending-—the dims would take a cut.
soetoro is just sticking his middle finger in America’s and the Republican’s face, saying “What are you going to do about it?”

The crashed hard-drive story is so over-the-top that it reeks of red herring. Lois Lerner, et al., knew that they were engaged in illegal activities. They knew that official communications get archived and are subject to FOIA requests and subpoenas. Isn’t it likely that a substantial portion of the most damning e-mails were never in official government accounts, but were sent on private accounts on personal smart-phones, laptops, etc.?
A special prosecutor with an investigative staff is needed immediately. I believe there is no SP law currently. The Dem’s will fight tooth and nail to stop a real investigation from happening. Now is the time to force them into covering up the cesspit they have created. Even stupid voters know this is preposterous corruption.
When all those people who didn’t sign up for “free healthcare” don’t get their refunds next year, EVERYONE will know all about the IRS.
many thanks for that most informative post!
all y’all, ping to this one also!!!!
What level is a violation of this no-spoliation rule, is it a misdemeanor or a FELONY?
You know, if things ever let loose in this country, I wouldn’t want to live within a couple miles of anyone who was ever associated with that agency.
Big difference between this and Watergate.
The media would do anything to destroy Nixon.
The media will do anything to protect Obama.
It is because close to half of the voters in this country do NOT pay taxes, so why should they care.
True, but there was further scuttlebutt about “recycling” the drive, which could mean destruction of the disks and/or heavy-duty wiping of the drive along with pulverizing the drives. But again, this data IS stored elsewhere. They simply need to get it before Odumbos cronies get it.
This thread is living proof of how much misinformation, bad information and outright guesses in lieu of the real facts we have to deal with when it comes to the IRS scandal. That’s really not intended as a criticism. It is simply an observation.
This makes things easier - now find the person that cancelled the contract & get the details. (who made the decision under what circumstances)
Next, find the company hired to take over this critical responsibility, and examine the transition plan.
No, you are wrong again.
The IRS was leasing software from them. That was their only responsibility, to provide software. The IRS retained the legal obligation to retain paper copies of documents.
And the contract was only for the IRS Office of Chief Counsel, not the department where Lois Lerner worked.
Why is every outraged American not shouting from the rooftops,
RICO LAWS PROSECUTIONS!!!
States are split between whether intentional spoliation of evidence constitutes a felony.
I agree with you 100%.
Obama is destroying the fabric of this country, riots and violence will run its course and will be recovered in due time.
While many blacks will revolt, not all will.
What the structural destruction will accomplish if far worse and far reaching in terms of time than the short term damage of racial provocation from the child in the WH.
“It’s a blatant lie, and everyone knows it. But Obama thinks he can get away with this stuff.”
That is because he has been allowed to get away with everything else - so far
He knows that nobody has the balls to do a thing about his tyranny - not Congress, and not the American people.
We should all be filing “exempt” on our W4s, and then refusing to file a tax return. Otherwise we are complicit in everything this immoral criminal enterprise commits. AND not one of us may claim “coercion” - to do so is utter BS ... Not one of us can be coerced, as all of us have free will, and the ability to refuse our cooperation with this cabal of fascist pigs.
The ONLY reason for Americans to allow this the continuance of this criminality is that we all would rather keep our precious “stuff,” rather than to actually stand up, like real men, and fight to keep our country. That IS THE bottom line in ALL of these “scandals.”
The American people have become fat, stupid, lazy, materialistic cowards. Therefore - they deserve to loose both their freedoms and their country! And, mark my words, THEY WILL ...
95 percent of this population will go down with a slobbering whimper, and will never lift a finger to fight - AND Obama and all his willing government cronies are fully aware of this fact; which is why they continue to “in your face” at every opportunity ... They are laughing at all of us, and we will all end our days as slaves to the state.
Not this time. The crime is far worse than the cover-up. Bob
Always remember... Lois Lerner is an attorney and held to a higher standard.
Covered all the bases didn’t they
Hmmm, was Lerner’s office in d.c.? Or across the Potomac?
Or would they figure the “event” happened in the state where the servers were?
And where was that?
agreed, if we dont get fired up, we will get fired on...
I guess the ghost of Rosemary Woods was on call that day
It’s a Federal case no matter where it happened. Remember, her previous job was with the FCC where she attacked Christian programming. Those would be excellent emails to read!!!
I agree, but think we should strip all right of the federal
gansta to raise any funds, thats where all this crap started, states should be required to have balanced budgets, anything left over that states want to donate for federal projects should be how the fed operates>>if we dont cut them off we are toast..
So, the company just deletes everything? Don’t clouds or whatever storage it is have a duty to save everything???? Sounds like that company may be in big trouble, a partner in crime assisting in a conspiracy which this IRS targeting case clearly is. It’s a real conspiracy, folks, not a coast to coast or late night talk one.
How could a modern company depend on a hard drive for email backup? Have they never heard of servers? How could 6 key hard drives fail? Is there a hardware problem?
It just doesn’t add up. What’s more, the most incredible story in the year, outside of the disappearance of MH370 jetliner, is not being covered in the MSM.
Go figure! Who’d a thunk?
What a coincidence!/s
There are legit reasons for federal government to exist. Beyond that cutting off their funding, and their ability to borrow without supermajority state approval, along with Paul Mac Penny plan implementation will go a long way to fixing our problems. So I will defer to you and recommend a maximum federal sales rate of 7%. Please feel free to cut that rate if you like. : D
See #120 above here.
As a federal employee I know for a fact that there are digital copies on an email server somewhere. Emails go from the computer, to the email server, then to the recipient. That email server keeps copies of them. Somewhere there are copies of those emails, and Obama and his cronies are stalling until they are all destroyed.
Ding, dang, gosh darn it.
Help me understand something....If the IRS backed up files even for just 6 months, how is it that the files on her hard drive were not recoverable from the backup and then able to be placed on her new hard drive? Isn’t that the purpose of a back up? Or did she wait 7 months after her hard drive crashed to report it?
OK - Enough. Its time for the American people to not pay taxes until: Lois Lerner produces the emails or she goes to trial for destroying evidence.
The border is secure. Repeal of Dreamer Act. All the invaders are deported.
Repeal of Obamacare.
Benghazi questions are answered.
A conservative lawyer could draw up a solid document that spells it out. The government is out of control and it appears that its up to us to restore it.
For years, my total understanding has been...
Standing is not an issue.
The question then becomes... who or what group has the resources to file and protect themselves (physically?)
And what can the rest of us, as ordinary citizens, do to help?
“The IRS retained the legal obligation to retain paper copies of documents.”
Not sure why you think you know what no one else does....
So you work for the IRS or Sonasoft?
IF YOU PAY SOMEONE TO BACK UP YOUR DOCUMENTS WITH A CONTRACT, THEN THE OBLIGATION IS THEIRS IF THE CONTRACTS READ THUS....WHICH WOULD MAKE SENSE.
Now I’m done with this subject....move on...
That it's a conspiracy is now beyond question.
Forget impeachment for now. The potential undiscovered evidence will be unassailable. Civil and criminal RICO charges will be the first step in cleaning the stables.
Resigning is increasingly becoming a futile alternative.
And as for "pardoning" himself and the thousands of co-conspirators, it must be made clear, now, that is not a viable option.
The most remarkable part of this sordid mess is that out of so many co-conspirators, not a single honest citizen, the key whistleblower, has emerged.
Speaking for myself, there is no backlash big enough, or nasty enough not to accept as the price of keeping our Freedom, our country and our history.
The remedy must be ruthless total and swift.
Let it come.
There is famous historical line about legality --- "the Court has made it's decision, let them enforce it."
If Omugabe goes there, that will be the signal that all reasonable legal and moral options for the citizenry have been exhausted.
There are entire books written about this. It began in earnest during the first Rapist's regime, together with his woman, Co-First rapist Hillary Cankles.
