Koskinen: “I’m advised the actual hard drive, after it was determined that it was dysfunctional and that with experts no emails could be retrieved, was recycled and destroyed in the normal process.”
Chairman Camp: “So was it physically destroyed?
Koskinen “That’s my understanding”
Chairman Camp: “So was it melted down, do you know?”
Koskinen: “I have no idea what the recycler does with it this was three years ago”
All that was missing from this exchange was “DUDE it was three years ago”! Experts have made it clear the emails should be on servers and backups but the fact of the matter is the IRS willfully destroyed material evidence in a Congressional investigation after telling Congress they had Lois Lerner’s emails.
If anyone was to pull this crap with the IRS they would be fined if not lose property and be thrown in jail! All we should be hearing from our “leaders” on the hill should be that they are fed up and working on bill to abolish the IRS! Will we hear this? Of course not because the day will come when there is a republican admin that will want to use this agency as a weapon just as the demoncrats have. This is why you never hear McConnell, Boehner or other GOP leaders call for action against this corrupt abusive agency.
Oh and America keep in mind the IRS is also the one charged with enforcing obamacare!
