    IRS says hard drive that lost emails destroyed

    News from The Associated Press
    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The IRS said Friday that Lois Lerner's computer hard drive was destroyed three years ago, ending any chance of retrieving her lost emails.
    In court papers, the IRS said the hard drive was destroyed after two sets of trained technicians tried to retrieve the data. The tax agency said it was standard procedure to destroy old data storage equipment that may have contained confidential taxpayer information.
    Can you just imagine the media uproar if this happened when Bush was in office?

    Virtual crickets, still, on this whole rotten thing.

    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?

    It's bull**** and/or a criminally negligent government email system. Backups of those systems and the spool (that lives on the email server not Lois Lerner's machine) is regularly backed up and preserved offsite.

    Gotta love it.

    Legacy building with every BS excuse and every instance of obstruction.

    Looking back on this Administration will be cringe worthy for any American not blinded by partisan ideology.

    Incompetence compounded with corruption on a unprecedented scale.

    Hope and Change.

    Looking back on this administration will be like looking back on a drunk one nighter with a seriously ugly chick.

    Profound Embarrassment.

    The instantaneous cringe of embarrassment ( what the hell were they thinking back then ) wont just stop at Obama either.

    This will define the Democrat brand for years to come here and internationally.

    His Presidency will instantly be associated with unprecedented corruption, lies, lawlessness, delusion, economic malaise, poverty and weakness.

    There's no doubt the WH had something to do with this scandal.

    The proof is in their collusion to obstruct and to deny any legitimate investigation that would hold these people accountable.

    The worst possible strategy for any administration when dealing with a legitimate " Politically motivated witch hunt " is to obstruct and make ridiculous statements like " not a smidgen of corruption ".

    All it does is add legitimacy to the charges and it perpetuates the scandal and these charges are unprecedented and depply disturbing.

    He has to know the damage his obstruction is doing to his legacy and the Democrat brand.

    I mean only deluded partisan Obama hacks believe the IRS is innocent here.

    So why would he chose to continue to do it ?

    Because the evidence their hiding is profoundly damaging and pointsbto highly illegal acts committed at the Highest office.

    Yup, and then magically the crash rebounded a bunch of miles until it took out just their spool backups at their email provider. From their it somehow erased all the tape backups and hard backups. Wow busy.

    And wouldn't ya know it, right about that time the IRS cancelled the contract with their backup server.

    Talk about the luck of good timing, huh? Since we're stupid, of course we believe it - coincidences happen all the time!

    Greetings, apdst.
