This is a huge shocker ……
The top U.S. official in charge of archiving federal records testified Tuesday that the IRS ran afoul of the law by neglecting to tell his office that a trove of emails from the woman at the center of the targeting scandal disappeared after an apparent hard drive crash.
Archivist of the U.S. David Ferriero, speaking before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, made clear that federal agencies are supposed to report whenever their records are destroyed or even accidentally deleted. But he said that after emails from embattled IRS official Lois Lerner vanished after a computer failure in 2011, nobody told the National Archives.
“They did not follow the law,” Ferriero said.
The testimony comes as lawmakers dig for answers as to how Lerner’s emails disappeared and why they only found out about it earlier this month. ……
Apparently, this is one of the many laws Mr. Gowdy was alluding to when the IRS commish said he found no evidence of people breaking the laws.
Now, it is possible, considering leftards mental handicap, they didn’t know not keeping records and not reporting the records was lost was a violation of the law.
Repeat after me, “ignorance of the law is no excuse”.
Our IRS confiscates people’s money and property and send people to jail on a near daily basis because of their ignorance, or alleged ignorance, of the law.
But, we all know this is bs. Every government worker knows data needs to be retained. Every IT person worth a crap knows data needs to be retained. This is why we know their lie about their email backup policies is a lie.
They told us they wrote over the tapes every 6 months. Did Sonasoft write over their tapes every 6 months? No, they didn’t. An email storage company did not write over their tapes every 6 months. That’s bullshit.
But, sadly, we have people in this nation who would put their party over the people of this nation and run to defend in indefensible. They are, in my estimation, treasonous bastards. It is the people of this land which makes this nation. I can, and do, disagree with many people of this land. However, I do consider them all citizens and rightfully protected by our laws and Constitution. If the protections don’t apply to them, then, I can’t expect them to apply to me. I won’t willingly give up their protections because I simply disagree with them. But, they would willingly give mine up? They are treasonous to this nation.
