    Another Agency tells Congress: File not found

    Oh yeah, sure.....the most Transparent Administration, Evaaa! What say ye?


    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the IRS share a problem: officials say they cannot provide the emails a congressional committee has requested because an employee’s hard drive crashed. EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy confirmed to the House Oversight Committee Wednesday that her staff is unable to provide lawmakers all of the documents they have requested on the proposed Pebble Mine in Alaska, because of a 2010 computer crash.



    “We’re having trouble getting the data off of it and we’re trying other sources to actually supplement that,” McCarthy said. “We’re challenged in figuring out where those small failures might have occurred and what caused them occur, but we’ve produced a lot of information.” “We have tried to serve a subpoena on your former employee and we have asked for the failed hard drive from this Alaskan individual who now is in New Zealand, and seems to never be returning,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the committee’s chairman, said Wednesday.

    Emails provided by the committee show that EPA told congressional investigators about the hard drive crash months ago. But McCarthy said she only told the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) about the problem Tuesday.The NARA enforces the Federal Records Act, which governs federal agencies’ responsibilities to maintain records.

    Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said EPA probably violated the Federal Records Act by not backing up North’s emails.

    This is just ****ing sad. Can't wait to hear the spin on this one from the left. Look, I get it you hate the right and think we're evil racist blah blah.

    Take a moment and look what your side of the isle is doing. Take a good look. Emails don't disappear, unless you REALLY want them too.

    Ask yourself, liberal/progressive/democrats. Do you honestly believe all these lost emails are just bad luck? Do you have some creeping doubts yet?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I worked for the feds several years. The hell of this is that emails are permanently stored on the main drive, not on the individual's computer. In fact, you are only give a small amount of storage on your computer and you have to keep deleting emails, or IT will shut down your ability to use email. Who do they think they are bull****ting. They can pull up any email they want from the main drive.

    There is no such thing as coincidence is this matter.

    As several have mentioned, and someone else mentioned to me, not only are they on the mail email server (which is not an individual hard drive) but I believe they are supposed to maintain paper files including emails pertaining to a particular subject.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    Damn, and it's my favorite two agencies - the IRS and EPA. And just when they were about to hit their stride in over-running the public. What a shame. Anybody sensing a pattern yet?

    Its not really funny, but I think back to Chenny meeting with the oil companies and excluding the sierra club on energy policy discussions. The leftist had cows galore over that and demanded transcripts and names of who met with the VP (like it was any of their business) and when Dick refused they through such a hissy fit. Now the opposition just wants the correspondence between bureaucrats and the regime has to resort to my "dog ate it."

    Obama's meeting aside, if he was a former employee, regardless of where he is on the globe, he can be subpoenaed. He can ignore it, but I wouldn't recommend it.
