    Haven't seen a corporation yet that can't provide emails for at least 5 years. Are you saying that the federal government is so incompetent they can't keep the same records?

    I mean are you really hitching your trailer to that excuse? This is 2014 not 1990.

    Consider for a moment that this is what the IRS still uses to store your tax returns:

    You're right, it isn't 1990, but it isn't 2014 for the IRS either. Their computers are from the 1960s. In fact, they're the same ones featured in this video:

Chicken soup is still legally required to be stored.


    That is why, for example, the White House staff started creating extra gmail accounts to handle official business that they did not want exposed on.
    are you referring to the rnc.com email accounts of the dicknbush regime?

    Sorry but can you please cite for us where this same equipment is used to store tax returns from 2013? I find that difficult to believe.

    It's all irrelevant since the emails cannot be lost. Every email system is backed up.

    That's a violation of computer use regulations.
