    not nice to talk about the backup service they had up until 10 days after being served that is.

    So the head of the department overseeing thousands of employees “happens” to have her computer crash so she can’t show how innocent those emails were.
    AND amazingly all the computers of those receiving the emails also “happen” to crash.
    They just think most Americans are stupid so they see no need to come up with a plausible excuse.

    The IRS is there to enforce the tax law Congress put on the books. How’s about we look at that law and its enforcement procedures, top to bottom, not just in the ‘right’ side numbers columns RepubliCons noise on about?

    It seems as though many are tying the 501c4 scandal to the missing emails when it is that they are two separate items. It can be argued that the 501c4 scandal is political, but the missing emails are not political but criminal. If the missing emails are restricted to 501c4 information, then the missing c4 documents could become designated as criminal activity – destruction of historical documents and obstruction of justice at a minimum. This would be true no matter the subject of an investigation, politically motivated or not.

    “The fact of the matter is after 13 months of multiple congressional investigations, including 14 congressional hearings, 30 interviews with I.R.S. employees, 50 written congressional requests and, as I mentioned, 750,000 pages of documents, there is zero evidence to support Republican claims.” — Josh Earnest
    Of course Lisa is no ordinary Republican.

    The fact that Josh Earnest is White House Special Assistant to the President, Principal Deputy Press Secretary and Chief of Staff makes me look at that kind of statement (or any statement like it by him) with skepticism. He also considers Lois Lerner’s loss of emails “entirely reasonable”.

    As a former System Admin for the government, I say BS on the IRS backup story and the BS about their computers crashing because they’re old. The feds buy new computers every other year or so, you very seldom see a three year old computer especially someone at her level. Admins are required to have backups that can retrieve any file from the past three months and virtually any file from the past year. They also have to do an End-of Year backup every year. And, her personal computer crashing still has no effect on the email servers. They’re lying through their teeth.

    @Mr King

    “The files were gone years ago before this issue ever even came up. Keep trying to dig up a scandal folks. Who knows? Maybe another stained blue dress will show up.”

    Not so, Mr King. They were available to the House Committee on Ways and Means as late as this year. Since investigations have been going on about this subject since 2011, the selectively missing emails could come under destruction of historical documents (IRS rules) or obstruction of justice. That all copies are missing because of a crashed hard drive borders on ludicrous.

    The most transparent administration in history has another glitch in providing truth. Nixon so wished he was in office now.

    So Ms. Lerner just shot the gerbil in the “hard drive” of her computer and caused a “crash” that destroyed her emails? I’m sure the Republicans will make hay out of that story!

    It’s not so much their backup system as the fact that information was purposely “lost.” The Obamanation and his cronies will go to any length to hide their corruption. This IRS mess is only one example of such corruption.

    Was there not a lot of data (potentially incriminating) lost during the Bush years??

    Anyone ever hear of computer viruses that destroy files in the infected computer and sends itself to other computers on the contact list?

    @Adrian Snare

    And of course your not.You keep showing us that you are by using hate,hateful,hatred,hater’s and hating in nearly ever post.
    You keep bring up read it into posts that don’t say anything about hate.You only assume.I pretty sure some one when you were in the military tried to teach you never to assume.Because assumptions are nearly always wrong.
    So hatred must fill a big part of your day every day.
    To bad you can’t focus that hatred on the Islamic jihad jerks that keep saying they want to turn the town you live in to radio active ash.They don’t care that your are not a republican or that you are a liberal.Your not a Muslim and live in the USA.
    As to the IRS B. S.
    the democrats wanting to prosecute the political opposition for no other reason then they disagree with them is criminal and so Hitler/Mussolini/Stalin/Mao/Pol Pot and any Kim IL like as to be very scary.But your OK with the democrats doing this sort of thing.
    I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t be OK with it if the shoe were on the left foot.
