Half The People In This Nation Would Defend The Lying And Oppose An Independent Probe Into This Obvious Lie To The People — Lois Lerner’s Lost Emails!!!!


IRS lost Lois Lerner’s emails in tea party probe

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service says it has lost a trove of emails to and from a central figure in the agency’s tea party controversy.

The IRS told congressional investigators Friday it cannot locate many of Lois Lerner’s emails prior to 2011 because her computer crashed that year. Lerner headed the IRS division that processed applications for tax-exempt status.

The IRS acknowledged last year that agents had improperly scrutinized applications for tax-exempt status by tea party and other conservative groups.

“The fact that I am just learning about this, over a year into the investigation, is completely unacceptable and now calls into question the credibility of the IRS’s response to congressional inquiries,” said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. “There needs to be an immediate investigation and forensic audit by Department of Justice as well as the inspector general.”

Well, that’s bullshit, and anyone with any sense knows that bullshit.  What was she running?  Outlook Express?  She either had an email account which was web based or server based.  Regardless, those emails went through a server which is, ideally, backed-up.  Her personal computer has no bearing as to whether or not we can retrieve her emails. 

It is possible, but, not with our federal government’s setup.  Indeed, it is a violation of federal law for it to be possible in Lerner’s case.  It was a violation of federal law in 2011.  Bullshit.


Further, we know the NSA has these records.  Don’t tell me they can help with common, non-governmental criminals but, can’t help with governmental criminals.  Bullshit!@!!

    It’s impossible for her emails to disappear….

    What’s scary, is that’s the excuse they came up with!

    So now emails can take the Fifth.

    Did the first one go to spam?

    So does Barracuda. Their lies are getting really bad because they no longer care if anyone believes them. No one will prosecute them.

  5. DirkH says:

    Lois Lerner is the new Area 51.

  6. Jim Masterson says:

    With Nixon, 18 missing minutes on his tapes was more than enough reason to Impeach. With two years of missing emails? Ho-hum–move along–nothing to see here. (And Nixon was a liberal who talked like a conservative.)

    Local machine’s hard drive is supposed to have crashed. Granting them that, you can still get data off the drive so long as it is physically intact. Unless they’re saying that they’ve shredded the drive literally, data can be retrieved at a cost of time and money; even if the backups ‘don’t’ exist (which they do).

    The internet never forgets. Packet switched, *store* and forward network built to guarantee message delivery provided a route exists between host A and host B; even in the face of a nuclear attack.
