As the IRS targeting scandal continues to unfold or, not unfold due to what I believe to be the willful obstruction of the house Ways and Means committee investigation by the Obama regime, Eric Holder’s Department of Injustice and most importantly, by Lois Lerner herself, the complete lack of credibility surrounding lost evidence is something which only the mainstream media seems able to ignore.
Emails. 2 years worth of lost emails. It’s just too incredible to be believed that a computer hard drive crash, just ten days after first being asked about those emails wiped them out for all time. Further, it is implausible to be asked to believe that six other IRS executives had THEIR hard drives crash in concert with the Lerner hard drive.
In this day and age, when cyber fingerprints can be lifted from even the most savagely destroyed hard drive and information recovered by experts in the private sector not to mention the public sector, such as the FBI, it is beyond even the pale to be told that hard drives from the IRS and top executives at the IRS at that, could not be forensically brought back to life and the data recovered.
When American citizens, fearing that day when the IRS comes knocking are required to have a full seven years of their lives ready to turn over to that very entity of the government, the entity that can ruin their futures, it is incomprehensible that the IRS itself is only required to keep THEIR data for a brief, fleeting six months and even MORE incomprehensible that the IRS would be using easy to destroy TAPE as their back up system.
Furthermore, it absolutely flies in the face of mere coincidence that, given the timing of the supposed hard drive crashes of the very six executives of the IRS AND that of Lois Lerner’s hard drive, just days after first being asked about such a specific time period as 2009-2011 and ONLY that period of emails, from ALL SIX subjects were lost for all time, that the very company contracted to back up and SAVE their emails, SonaSoft, had THEIR contract CANCELLED by the IRS.
To be expected to believe this line of crap is seriously insane.
Those emails exist….
