    Re: IRS says hard drive that lost emails destroyed

    destroying those defective hard drives to prevent access to privileged information does not seem unreasonable if that was the agency policy when the hard drive was destructed. determining whether that was actually the IRS policy/practice at that time would seem to be a reasonable question to ask and ensure is answered. maybe issa will actually do something, and ask that question

    and isn't the interest primarily in lerner's communication to white house staff
    why can the white house servers not be queried to identify/supply the sought after emails initiated by and responded to learner?
    another question issa should insist is answered

    why does he not make such inquiries? is he afraid the answers will end the fabricated 'scandal' and prevent him from getting and more headline coverage?

    This is just more convincing that some seriously damning evidence was on that hard drive that went far beyond Little Lois.

    Wouldn't those emails possibly be on other IRS people's hard drives, too? Are those destroyed as well?
    Considering ALL that is possibly on the line because of this situation (jobs, future careers - or dozens of people or even the entire concept of the IRS as it stands) I'm wondering if this one thing isn't all she's (they're) trying to hide.

    If they've done this - then what else have they done?
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    With the MSM in control of the election issues it's possible that it may not get the publicity it deserves. It would seem that there is only the Tea Party who can keep this issue alive.

    The IRS ADMITTED that it targeted Conservatives.

    Then they blamed rogue agents in Cincinnati who then testified under Oath that their orders came from Washington.

    Then, the IRS destroyed evidence.

    So what are you talking about ?

    because of defective hard drive. show us it was anything else

    So what are you talking about ?
    trying to get issa to actually ask some useful questions. was the practice of destroying defective hard drives the IRS policy when that happened to learner's? why can learner's emails to and from the white house not be accessed via the white house servers? you know, question s that will prompt answers to the question instead of issa headlines about his pointless stunts

    Lois Lerner, 2012, planted question, rogue agents lie, destruction of evidence.

    You'll ignore it but there.

    You mean like the current uproar? The IRS thing is in the news almost daily, and hounded to death in blogs. Don't act like this is being ignored by anyone. Of course, how much attention over the long haul one story gets is tempered by what else is going on that's grabbing headlines. A passenger plane shot down, Israeli teens kidnapped and murdered by Palestinians, Palestinian boys on a beach killed by Israel, broo ha ha over Iraq coup, the VA scandale, this email scandal, etc., etc.
