Skip to comments.IRS lawyer: By the way, hard drives of some other employees who dealt with Lois Lerner also crashed

We’ve reached a sufficiently high level of implausibility now, I think, that this story technically qualifies as a news-of-the-weird palate cleanser, not actual news.
Assuming the data isn’t recovered and no one is punished, as seems likely, this is a get-out-of-jail-free card for the next president’s administration, no? If some Democratic Senate oversight committee demands to see e-mails from President Christie’s underlings and the reply comes back that the hard drives were all corrupted, what’s the grounds for complaint?
IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Thomas Kane said in transcribed congressional testimony that more IRS officials experienced computer crashes, bringing the total number of crash victims to less than 20, and also said that the agency does not know if the lost emails are still backed up somewhere.
The new round of computer crash victims includes David Fish, who routinely corresponded with Lois Lerner, as well as Lerner subordinate Andy Megosh, Lerners technical adviser Justin Lowe, and Cincinnati-based agent Kimberly Kitchens.
Per WaPo, the International Association of Information Technology Asset Managers (IAITAM) published a list of six unanswered questions for the IRS’s IT wizards today. Question one:
1.) What happened to the IRSs IT asset managers who appear to have disappeared at a key juncture?
Ordering the destruction of a hard drive and documenting that process would be handled by trained, certified IT asset managers, according to IAITAM. But the groups records show that at least three IRS IT asset managers were shuffled out of their positions around the time of the May 2013 inspector generals report that detailed the agencys targeting practices.

So, don’t bother looking for their e-mails as well...................Just a heads up, so we can save some time and money, you know.................
Once the criminal regime got away with
no birth certificate, fraud by Pelosi,
known criminal behavior by Holder,
supporting al Qaeda, opening the borders
while infecting every state with tuberculosis,
WHAT WAS LEFT?
How come that excuse will never work for my tax records....
We live in lawlessness, only the typical law abiding citizen doesn’t realize it yet, but the government sure as hell does and is using it to their FULL ADVANTAGE....
charge her with felony obstruction and let a jury deicde if this all just a coincidence.
What is the hold up?
They are on the G: drive.
Put them all in jail for destroying evidence!
Must have been free magnet day @ the IRS for that bunch.....
By the way.
I’m sorry that I can’t provide all the documents you want to see, but my VCR no longer works, so they’re gone.
I’ll bet they all forgot to print off those emails and file them at the National Archives, too.
And there still will be no special prosecutor.
Because the Emperor doesn’t see a need for one, Eric will handle it.
He’s doing the lords work for America
Boy, of all the rotten luck...
They are laughing at us, America! They know that we can’t do anything to them. It has really come right down to it: the government considers the people and the opposition to be the enemy.
Next, they’ll just show us the hard drive and then smash it with a giant Gallagher mallet and say, “Oops. This one crashed too!”
Again, it is NOT the computer’s hard drives that are the problem.
E-mails are not stored in the user’s hard drives. They are storied in e-mail SERVERS.
Even if the server crashed, all major systems have redundancy built in for just this reason. Take down the server, use the redundant server, fix the main server, and reload the data. Always at least two complete systems.
The experts keep telling us this: When you lose your computer [hard drive], you dont lose your email. In a business environment, the email actually resides on the server. So, theyre retrievable from the server,
I wonder what’s so hard to understand about that...
>>Again, it is NOT the computers hard drives that are the problem.
I know that. I’m a System Admin. That’s my point. They are not only lying, they are lying about using 20 year old technology and they don’t care that we know its a lie.
I’m surprised they didn’t blame it reformatting the wrong floppy.
Is that the one that is write-only?
