Well we always suspected the IRS had found another way to hide the agenda.

Now it looks like they use(d) instant messaging to circumvent those exposing emails !!

And the system apparently had a "self deleting" feature as well !!

And no "archive" backup system either !!

Astounding

IRS Used Instant Messaging System to Hide Internal Communications



The IRS used a “wholly separate” instant messaging system that automatically deleted office communications, according to documentation released by the House Oversight Committee on Monday. The system appears to have been purposefully used by agency officials responsible for the targeting of conservative non-profits, in order to evade public scrutiny.

The system, known as “Office Communication Server” or OCS was used by IRS officials, including many in the Exempt Organizations (EO) Unit, which was headed by Lois Lerner.

As the Oversight Committee report states, the instant messaging system did not archive any communications, so it is not possible to know what employees of the EO unit discussed on it.

So they are doing a bunch of illegal poop?

No surprise... Tell them to join the rest of America. Since we've all decided to make our lives so hard on one another there's no way to get through this life in this country without breaking the law one way or another or getting incredibly lucky.

It's a shame the NSA doesn't have copies of all of those communications.

All speculation and zero substance.

In my amateur opinion, this is the curtain call for the ice queen.

IRS agents should be free to have frank discussions among themselves, talk about avoidance methods, and verify evidence concerning tax cheats?..........this is real simple, don't try and cheat on taxes...if you do, I don't give a damn what happens to you.....these political groups were trying to cheat on their taxes, and the IRS found out.....screw em

We can never excuse an abuse of power by a branch or department of government.

Do they take minutes of all their conversations? I wonder what, by law, has to be recorded and what doesn't.

For instance, if a person is assigned an audit or asked to gather info, it that request required to be recorded for possible review at a later time?

Anyone ever heard of Microsoft Lync?

It's probably something like that, with the option to NOT save the conversation.

Yeah, because the employees of the IRS get to keep all of that money...SMH.

Those people put their pants on one leg at a time, just like the rest of us. They go and do an absolutely thankless job 5 days a week; 52 weeks a year. But ,hey, let's bag on them for trying to make a living...doing exactly what they are paid to do.

To quote John Bender:

Exactly. I seriously doubt your rank-and-file IRS employee has an evil mastermind chair (the high backed one that swivels) and laughs maniacally as they plot to screw over Americans, relishing how EVIL they are.

They're just people working a job to feed themselves and their family. They do what they're told and don't always see the bigger picture or understand why they are doing what they are doing.
