IRS CANCELLED Contract with Email-Storage Firm Weeks After Lernerís Computer Crash
daily caller ^ | 6/22 | howley

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?

Let’s connect the dots.

Who fired the backup company? What orders did they give? What happened to their data. You mean once you cancel they don’t save anything for you?

GIve the people around Lois Lerner total immunity. Start asking questions of the IT boys and girls.

I mean, do these people actually think we’re that stupid?

WORST THING YET!!!!? BERSTEIN AND WOODWARD DONT THINK THE IRS SCANDAL REMOTELY COMPARES TO WATERGATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not unaware. While I want a national retail sale’s tax and have commented about same before, if Americans insist upon an income tax then a 10% flat tax, no deductions, no exemptions. If you make money on it that is income. No need for the IRS and the obscene tax code designed to protect the elites and punish those that desire to improve their lives. We are on the same page.

No not stupid, ignorant. They believe the propaganda media will provide cover for them. And so far they are correct. Beyond it all, it seems there are plenty of law broken here. Plea bargains often uncover vital information.

Someone(s) can be a real hero and also a villain too depending on the sides affected if they can come up with those e-mails supposedly lost forever.

Why bother.

The answer is:
Every person on the planet

BUT, sorry, not the IRS employees who hard drives crashed.

Thanks for the enlargement. I just used control+ to enlarge it on my screen. I didn’t want to enlarge it too much as a post, but thought it was an important issue to consider.

I should have logged into my legal research account(I use our university law school resources) and printed it out.

Why this country is not standing outside every IRS building in this country with pitchforks and flaming torches is beside me.

Actually we should padlock the doors and gates on the son-of-a bitches and dare them to try and come out!

Let the treasonous bastards starve to death for all I care.

If an investigative reporter would go get the correct information about all of this, that would be great. But so far, a lot of people have been jumping to incorrect conclusions.

That’s why I’m standing up saying, wait, what you’re saying is not correct.

this is one of the problems with the internet, it stores tons of information, but you cant ask it questions. what is needed is old fashioned gumshoe walking and talking investigations not jumping to conclusions based on little information. Asking questions in person also gives one a chance to evaluate the demeanor and credibility of those they question.

I suggest Issa subpoena Lerners assistant and ask her about lerners emails etc..Lerner herself in an email said her assistant got to her emails before her,,also the tech guy to see what he did to try and recover data-interesting was that he offered to try and recover it-she didn’t ask him-also when he put in new drive did he install it with all her data that was on their back ups? if not why not?

There was a contract for one year for Sonasoft to provide archiving SOFTWARE only, to one department at the IRS, and that was not the department Loise Lerner worked in.

No. There were eight contracts with treasury for multiple years.

I see 4 for the IRS. The 1st one was for equipment, which were probably the hard drive arrays from Rorke. The other three appear to be annual software agreements for three separate years. According to the details of the contracts I have seen, this was for the counsel’s office, not the IRS in general.

Based on the costs, I would guess this would cover 15-30 computers. But that is a guess, and with my background, I call it an educated guess. But it’s still a guess.

Yes, and didn’t Obama and/or Congress pass a law that all internet ISPs had to keep a record of all activity for two or more years for legal reasons around 2009?

I think that leaves wiggle room for corruption to begin again. Feds ability to raise any funds must be stopped completely. Make them our servants again.
