Sharyl Attkisson has a few questions about the Lerner e-mails

posted at 8:41 am on June 16, 2014 by Jazz Shaw

Will there be an investigation into the questionable (to put it kindly) story about the “lost” e-mails from Lois Lerner’s computer? And if so, will any of the seemingly obvious and substantive questions about this tale be asked? At her blog, Sharyl Attkisson provides a list of the questions she would like to see asked, assuming anyone in DC is actually interested in finding the truth. Here are just a few.

Please provide a timeline of the crash and documentation covering when it was first discovered and by whom; when, how and by whom it was learned that materials were lost; the official documentation reporting the crash and federal data loss; documentation reflecting all attempts to recover the materials; and the remediation records documenting the fix. This material should include the names of all officials and technicians involved, as well as all internal communications about the matter.

Please provide all documents and emails that refer to the crash from the time that it happened through the IRS’ disclosure to Congress Friday that it had occurred.

Please provide the documents that show the computer crash and lost data were appropriately reported to the required entities including any contractor servicing the IRS. If the incident was not reported, please explain why.

Please explain why redundancies required for federal systems were either not used or were not effective in restoring the lost materials, and provide documentation showing how this shortfall has been remediated.

Please provide any documents reflecting an investigation into how the crash resulted in the irretrievable loss of federal data and what factors were found to be responsible for the existence of this situation.

I would also ask for those who discovered and reported the crash to testify under oath, as well as any officials who reported the materials as having been irretrievably lost.

I think it’s possible that at least some of the Republicans will be able to engineer a set of questions which are both as specific as those and as professionally stated. What will be revealing – if it happens – is if and how such questions are answered. Of all the strange tales and fables coming out of this investigation, the Sorry, but the dog ate my homework defense has to be the one which comes from furthest out in the Twilight Zone. It would be instructive to see how the administration and the upper management at the IRS respond to a set of questions such as this.

On a side note, Attkisson has a new book coming out soon. The title is, Stonewalled. My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington. For those interested (and who may not have heard about it yet) you can pre-order a copy here.

Barack HUSSEIN Obama has so little respect for the intelligence of the American People he won’t even make his lies plausible.

These emails DO exist, or the IRS is running a criminally negligent organization.

But I contradict myself.

A weaponized IRS without any accountability just told Congress to take a leap. An IRS which now has a political mandate subject to control by the president. This is the infrastructure of tyranny.

Zomcon JEM on June 16, 2014 at 8:46 AM

No, Lerner’s actions (and the actions of those who aided her) amount to TREASON against the Constitution.

She acted in concert with others to subvert the electoral process, to deny free speech, and to manipulate an election in favor of the ruling party. That is Treason.

One way to discourage government corruption is to execute the corrupt. We used to do that vigorously back in the early days (tar and feathers, hung from lampposts, etc) and it’s historically why the United States has been less corrupt than other nations.

But since the rise of the New Left in the 1900′s we’ve seen an exponential rise in government power and corruption.

ConstantineXI on June 16, 2014 at 8:52 AM

Atkisson is now a contributing writer at the Daily Signal. Worth a read.

LASue on June 16, 2014 at 8:53 AM

Do you remember those great speeches from the Republicans on the committee that captivated the nation? About how the average American knows what it’s like to get a letter from the IRS and the IRS doesn’t accept “I can’t find it” or “I can’t remember”? That people need to start going to jail for this?

Yeah, that’s been OVER A YEAR now. This is why you lost, Cantor.

We need a Judge Sirica at this point. It’s one thing for Obama to tell Congress to pound sand; it’s another if a federal judge orders that evidence be turned over. If Obama tells two branches of the government to pound sand, we then have a full-blown constitutional crisis on our hands. And if the media ignored that, it would confirm what a lot of us suspect.

Mr. D on June 16, 2014 at 8:56 AM

Easy – Jail Lois Lerner for Contempt of Congress until ALL the emails under subpoena are recovered. Unless and until that time, she stays locked up.

HornHiAceDeuce on June 16, 2014 at 9:00 AM

If you’ve ever worked in IT for or with a federal contractor, then you know the fed’s list of requirements relative to data security, storage, etc. are as long as your arm – which makes the IRS excuse even more audacious and risible.

The only problem with this obvious stall tactic is that it may work i.e. the prosecution’s effort and expertise must be brought to bear on disproving the claim rather than focusing on the conspiracy.

Reinforcement is still the greatest and most lasting teacher – what other lesson will bureaucrats learn except to dummy up and shred evidence? Without someone going to jail and/or spilling the beans it will drag on and on.

Don’t be kind Jazz. It only enables the fascists. It took two years for the IRS to discover they only keep six months of the records? Complete bullsh!t. And why did Lois take the Fifth when Dear Liar “assures” us there’s not a smidgeon of corruption? The fifth Amendment is only available where a crime has been committed.

ThisIsYourBrainOnKoch on June 16, 2014 at 9:06 AM

It is simply not possible that the government is not using an IMAP mail system. Those store emails on the server in perpetuity. Lois just has to log onto her account from a different machine and, voila!, all the emails are there, including drafts.

In the highly unlikely event that they’re using POP which does usually not store emails on the server, I’m absolutely certain her machine was backed up regularly.

If neither of these were done then there needs to be some serious housecleaning in the federal I/T department.

Come to think of it, even if both were not done, every email has at least two parties. The emails would still exist on the other parties’ machines.

More to the point: illegal. If they can throw the book at Scooter Libby for misremembering an entry from his own diary from a couple years previous, then they can certainly throw people in jail for not performing the required backups.

Fenris on June 16, 2014 at 9:15 AM

House and Ways Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) says that along with providing news of the emails that have been lost, the IRS suggested in the same letter to Congress that it end its investigation.

The late disclosure of the lost emails may be reason to disregard the suggestion.

J_Crater on June 16, 2014 at 9:16 AM

Of course, all this is a waste of time and energy. Faux messiahs don’t need to comply with mere mortal’s wishes, nor to their faux angels–not to mention they own both; the justice department, the power to pardon….and many of the politicians in both parties.

Lerner emails “missing.” Obama’s records “missing” and oddly replaced with illustrations of the appearance of a record long afterward.

EVERYONE who understand emailed correspondence KNOWS that no email ever does, really, “disappear” — at least as long as hardware still exists, among other aspects.

Interesting how all evidence about Obama and his ‘associates’ so easily just disappears. Poof, can’t find it, must be lost, not relevant, a distraction, being investigated, not an issue…

Stop wishing on a star, they all went out.

You’re a loser. I don’t wish for things…I work for them.

Is that where we inform Ed that TIYBOK is a pedophile?

You have no idea what I do or don’t work on. You’ve got a lot of nerve to judge my total character because of a few words on a blog. Is this the way you treat all people who don’t agree with you 100 percent?

Waste of my time.

The explanation given is that for some reason that is known only to the IRS, most e-mails were kept on a centralized computer system (these e-mails do survive) but some specialized list of other e-mails were only stored on the hard drive of the user (these e-mails are missing).

Why this bifurcated storage system ? Who knows ? It sure does sound mighty convenient, and probably a violation of the federal records act.

J_Crater on June 16, 2014 at 11:26 AM

Because those are the ones on her Yahoo account. Duh.

I always liked her, now she’s doing the job of the entire media.

It should be totally irrelevant whether Lerner’s hard drive failed.

Those emails should be on the actual mail server or archived from the mail server.

Well then, good. Now they are really out there to be snatched up by a very special prosecutor. Looks like ole LoL had some very special private business on her very special private account. Yahooooh!

Water Board Lois, shouldn’t take very long for her to give it up.

I almost don’t want her found guilty UNTIL AFTER the next presidential election, when BHO can’t give her a get out of jail free card.

dolfan on June 16, 2014 at 12:31 PM

. . . . instead numerous commentors attacked me for questioning why she should be executed.

Why are they lying? Look at the players. We have a President (and crew) wanting to be reelected more than anything. We have liberal lefties in government very, VERY happy with their growing power and income. We have government agencies- FEC, DOJ, FBI which were knee-deep in violation criminal law. (Not to mention ATF and OSHA on the “Truth the Vote” case). We have Congressmen who DEMANDED government workers do something to stop the TEA Party after the Supreme Court ruled free speech was just that FREE SPEECH!

So, now we have a ton of foxes being asked to investigate which one of them ate all the chickens in the hen house- and they ALL DID! Do you think for a minute a group of people hell bent on “keeping what is theirs” is going to start locking themselves up?

No, they believe in the mantra- The end justifies the means. And it worked didn’t it.

Lerner is just a bureaucratic linchpin here. Sure, if we could pull her out, the wall would crack, but it will never crumble. There are too many powerful moving parts.

I’m in but I have to tell you that I think the House arresting her would be enough. I don’t think people in fancy smancy houses with husbands who have to bill hours, like to be arrested. What would the neighbors say?
