    Oh! So, there's no way that Lerner would attempt to illegally prosecute an American citizen? "obviously", she wouldn't have?

    So now your argument is that she was attempting to? You're basically running around in circles here.

    Lerner contacting the DOJ isn't incriminating her in any way.

    Except didn't she contact the DOJ right around the time frame that it came out that they were indeed targeting 'right wing' groups, and they excused it away as a 'rouge employee'?

    It seems if they admit they were in the wrong, and follow that up by trying to get the DOJ to get involved, that they are continuing on the same course. Most likely because they believe nothing will come of the whole scandal.

    1) It's illegal to falsely prosecute someone.

    2) If she was suggesting that an American citizen be illegally charged of a crime, it ruins her credibility.

    But we don't know if that's what she was doing. Merely asking the DOJ if prosecution is an option is not illegal.

    No, she wasn't, "asking if it was legal"...lol! She asked they could get away with it, basically.

    Re: IRS: So… Our Computer Crashed And Erased All Of Lois Lerner’s Emails

    According to Breitbart this morning, the IRS has a contract with a company that archives the emails for the IRS. So why doesn't the commissioner know about it?

    As IRS commissioner John Koskinen sat on Capitol Hill belatedly informing a Congressional committee of the "disappearance" of years of email communications from a host of IRS employees under investigation--including Lois Lerner--it was discovered that the IRS had hired an email backup company to prevent just such a loss of data.

    After the commissioner's testimony, a Twitter user went hunting for info on the IRS and discovered that as far back as 2005 a company named Sonasoft had announced that it had been awarded a data backup contract from the IRS. Even as late as 2009, the company had tweeted about its association with the taxing agency.

    So, how is it that commissioner Koskinen was so sure during his testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee that all the emails of the very IRS operatives under investigation just happened to have disappeared forever?

    Did Mr. Koskinen check with Sonasoft to see if the backup company had the emails? Does he even know of Sonasoft's existence?

    Sonasoft seems to be aware of the IRS, anyway. On its website, the tech company lists the IRS as one of the clients it does archiving work for.

    This just seems to be getting "curiouser and curiouser," as Alice remarked in her travels in Wonderland. If the Commisioner really didn't know, no harm done. He knows now, and so does everyone else. This story has had so many strange twists and turns, it's way past believability at this point. So my question is why we are being encouraged to focus our attention on this? What is the administration, and the media, diverting our attention from something that is possibly more important to this Country than who got fast-tracked or not on their request for tax exempt status years ago? Just wondering out loud....

    Good Sunday morning, Vesper.

    Good morning to you, Polgara. I'm not so sure this story is being used as a diversion. What I do think is there are some senior senators and folks at the WH that have been using stalling practices to buy some time to keep the truth from coming out exposing their involvement. Sen. Levin has already been linked to the scandal and last year he announced he was retiring and would not seek re-election at the end of his term.
