Mr. David Ferriero of the National Archives testified today that the IRS "broke" the law when they discovered Lois Lerner's computer crashed and her emails were "un-recoverable".

The problem with the official IRS story is that they in fact had the back-ups and apparently decided not to restore the data.

The IRS claims the back up data was only "saved" for 6 months (unconfirmed in the absence of a contract copy).

Obviously, the IRS and Lerner knew that the "Lost" data would lead to criminal exposure in the now admitted targeting on specific political opponents applying for 501 tax status.

And mysteriously, the IRS has in fact been able to provide old emails before and after Lois's computer crash.

Obama's IRS is busting at the seams.




According to David Ferriero of the National Archives, the IRS "did not follow the law" when it discovered that the Lois Lerner emails and those of six other IRS employees were lost.

Questioned by Rep.Tim Walberg (R-MI)fromy the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday, Ferriero, an archivist from the National Archives and Records Administration, testified the Archives are legally required to be notified of any unauthorized loss or destruction of information. The Archives and Records administration was not informed about Lois Lerner's loss of emails or the subsequent disposal of her computer (or the crashes/email losses of the other six IRS employees.)

When Rep. Walberg asked Mr. Ferriero if the IRS broke the law, the archivist refused to answer because he was not an attorney. He did admit, however, that the IRS "did not follow the law."

Sorry, this can't be true. Our President told us there was not even a "smidgen" of corruption by the IRS.

Sounds like they decided that the IRS should not come out of this squeaky clean due to public outrage. They will most likely give someone a slap on the wrist for not disclosing information about the "crashed" hard drives and hope that pacifies the "ignorant" masses.

Why are they smiling and who is the guy with the curly hair all happy that he avoided a real reply?

Like the democratic congressman from Virginia, Gerry Connolly, very condescendingly stated at the hearing last night...

The IRS only has a 2 billion dollar year IT budget, and that obviously wasn't enough to ensure IRS compliance with the law.

Instead of grilling the IRS head on why they "lost" the emails in question, this discussion should be about how congress can help the IRS with a bigger budget next year to make sure something like this can't happen again!

Problem solved! Thanks congressman!

Does this suprise anybody??? I know people on this forum will be outraged at the blatant misconduct by this Admin and the IRS but the rest of the sheeple in the world will keep on trucking as if nothing happened. The sheeple will just carry on thinking nothing could ever disrupt there taco wednesdays and reality tv but it will come crashing down eventually right on their heads.

I just find the whole thing smacking like a move of desperation. Deleting emails is serious business. Who is going to believe that Lois Lerner's computer crashed at roughly the same time as a number of other key IRS figures and all emails were lost? This happened within weeks at the least, months at the worst, of Lerner's testimony (taking the 5th).

So...we have Lois, in effect, admitting to illegal activities and then hers and key other IRS computers all crash at roughly the same time. Said crashes result in the computers being destroyed, emails lost. Following that the IRS had a chance to restore the emails and chose not to?

Soooo.... I maintain there there is no way an intelligent person would not see the obvious for what it is.

"smidgeon" of corruption--

Yeah, that goes along with him saying that his administration would be 'transparent'....*sigh*

Wonder what dictionary he uses, just saying...


There's always been a smidgeon of corruption, but this guy takes the cake when it comes to outlandish BS remarks such as this, especially when the evidence is suggesting just the opposite


If he had said something to the effect of:
'Oh hell, what have you guys gone and done now?
You're fired, you're fired, you're fired, etc....

But he didn't

He might as well say ---"WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE"


What a joke, a sad one at that....



I am not surprised one bit about the 'vanishing' e-mails
In fact, it's almost expected

Perhaps by "transparent" Obama meant: Obviously corrupt?
