Carrier Smidgens – IRS Revelations – Lois Lerner Hard Drive Was “Scratched” Not “Unrecoverable” – IRS ignored advice to use outside experts to recover data

Against the Backdrop of two court rulings declaring the IRS must present specific legal outlines to support their position(s) –missing or corrupted IRS emails– things get interesting.   The legal clock is ticking down to court mandated affidavit deadlines.

As previously shared “The Absolute Truthtakes on a new dimension when officials must swear under oath, in federal court, and under penalty of perjury.

Stay tuned in to this story – eventually you will be describing it to your grandchildren.

From our research it appears to be the BIGGEST STORY in the history of U.S. political corruption and conspiracy.   We have followed the trail, connected the dots so far, pored over thousands of documents, hours of testimony and dozens of interviews.    The entire trail leads not to the IRS, but to the DOJ.   The IRS was the weapon; Lois Lerner was the “trigger”; But Eric Holder was the entity holding, targeting and aiming.

Washington, DC – Despite early refusals to make available IT professionals who worked on Lois Lerner’s computer, Ways and Means Committee investigators have now learned from interviews that the hard drive of former IRS Exempt Organizations Director Lois Lerner was “scratched,” but data was recoverable.

In fact, in-house professionals at the IRS recommended the Agency seek outside assistance in recovering the data. That information conflicts with a July 18, 2014 court filing by the Agency, which stated the data on the hard drive was unrecoverable – including multiple years’ worth of missing emails.

“It is unbelievable that we cannot get a simple, straight answer from the IRS about this hard drive,” said Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI). “The Committee was told no data was recoverable and the physical drive was recycled and potentially shredded. To now learn that the hard drive was only scratched, yet the IRS refused to utilize outside experts to recover the data, raises more questions about potential criminal wrong doing at the IRS.”

It is also unknown whether the scratch was accidental or deliberate, but former federal law enforcement and Department of Defense forensic experts consulted by the Committee say that most of the data on a scratched drive, such as Lerner’s, should have been recoverable. However, in a declaration filed last Friday by the IRS, the agency said it tried but failed to recover the data, but is not sure what happened to the hard drive afterwards other than saying they believe it was recycled, which, according to the court filing means “shredded.”

Further complicating the situation, the Committee’s investigation has revealed evidence that this declaration may not be accurate. A review of internal IRS IT tracking system documents revealed that Lerner’s computer was actually once described as “recovered.” In a transcribed interview on July 18, IRS IT employees were unable to confirm the accuracy of the documents or the meaning of the entry “recovered.”

“It is these constant delays and late revelations that have forced this investigation to go on so long,” Camp added. “If the IRS would just come clean and tell Congress and the American people what really happened, we could put an end to this. Our investigators will not stop until we find the full truth.”  (read more)

    Also remember the former director who made all those visits to the WH during all this stuff. This is going to get a lot bigger, I think. (When/if the whole truth ever comes out)


  2. Cyber says:

    Smidgens upon smidgens. Eventually 10,000,000,000,000 smidgens amount to a morsel. Perhaps we are now seeing a large tidbit of a scandal.


  3. Daniel says:

    Just as impeachment hearings begin, Obama will issue pardons to everyone involved and then resign office.


    • He doesn’t have the balls for that.


      • Daniel says:

        Eh, you could be right. The democrat party has a pretty long history of mysterious endings. The Clintons have a pretty wild list of mysterious and coincidental endings from what I’ve read. The mysterious end of another before things blow up completely? Why not? We all know that Obama is just a president. He was placed into office. “He didn’t build that.” We will never know why Obama is trashing the USA but there are plenty of theories and we can’t even get close enough to know who is ACTUALLY behind it all.


      • LetJusticePrevail" says:

        He won’t resign. They will have to pry the phone and pen out of his fingers, but he’s just arrogant enough to sign a round of pardons for anyone who he wants to reward for their loyalty. But, that’s only if it is necessary in the first place, which I doubt will be the case. Why do I say that? Because I totally believe that the judicial system is now so corrupt that not one of the actual “players” will ever be convicted of a crime.

    Well yeah, no the dog didn’t eat her hard drive, but the kitteh we blame for swallowing it.
    The kitteh then puked up a hair ball that we didnt know was hidden in a hair ball.
    Seein as we work for obambi, we figured we’d stare at kitteh’s litter box with the gutter slime media that couldnt inform the public of the most impeachable mess this administration has made

    The stink from this is hovering over both DOJ and IRS. Eric Holder is the sword and shield for Obama’s plausable deniability.


    • John Galt says:

      18 USC 1505

      Whoever, with intent to avoid, evade, prevent, or obstruct compliance, in whole or in part, with any civil investigative demand duly and properly made under the Antitrust Civil Process Act, willfully withholds, misrepresents, removes from any place, conceals, covers up, destroys, mutilates, alters, or by other means falsifies any documentary material, answers to written interrogatories, or oral testimony, which is the subject of such demand; or attempts to do so or solicits another to do so; or
      Whoever corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication influences, obstructs, or impedes or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede the due and proper administration of the law under which any pending proceeding is being had before any department or agency of the United States, or the due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any inquiry or investigation is being had by either House, or any committee of either House or any joint committee of the Congress—
      Shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both.

      And of course conspiracy (18 USC 371) stacks on all the obstruction offenses. Zero might wear out his pen signing pardons.

        This assumes that the courts or Congress are going to do their jobs, which they haven’t so far. This is one of the reasons I am so down on the GOP. First, they signed off on Obama being qualified to serve as President, which he is not. How many Congressional investigations have we had on administration scandals? How many have been held accountable for any of this? As we all know, Holder lied to Congress. Was anything done about it? I think we are now finding out that the IRS smidgens are lying to Congress. Is anything being done about it? Why do we need the courts to get involved? Apparently, because our Congress creatures don’t have the gonads to do their jobs and hold anyone accountable. Having laws is only part of the system. If nobody is held accountable to those laws, what good are they? Apparently, if you are an “upper crust of society” politician, the law, as written, doesn’t apply. Obama is not the only one showing a distinct lack of leadership in this country. I’m not a lawyer, but I believe that having knowledge of illegal activity and doing nothing about it makes you an accessory. If so, where does that leave our Congress Creatures?

    All of the smidgen carrier pigeons are coming home to roost. There has to be some stool pigeons in there somewhere.


  8. MouseTheLuckyDog says:

    They thought they could jsut use toothpaste on the hard drive.

    OK. Sorry I couldn’t resist.


  9. mung says:

    Umm, how do you scratch a hard drive? Do they even have a clue how computers work? It is nearly impossible to scratch a metal hard drive platter on a modern drive.


    • dws says:

      I assume they mean the platter was scratched in the failure, which is the common way that hard drives fail, rather than some external scratching. But I am supposing this for them.


      • mung says:

        failure wouldn’t scratch a platter. Groove maybe, not scratch. It would be like trying to scratch a brake rotor. Unless the groove is in the partition table, total data loss is very unlikely.


    • John Galt says:

      Probably tossed her laptop out the window into the dumpster below when the drive was spinning.

    ALWAYS put them under oath and have them risk perjury and watch the tunes change.
