Department of Justice: We Heard About
IRS Missing Emails On The News

Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/18/2014 7:13:58 AM

James Cole, deputy attorney general in the Department of Justice, testified Thursday that the DOJ heard about the destruction of IRS officials’ emails in the news, even though DOJ has formally been investigating the IRS for more than a year. “I think we learned about it after that, from press accounts,” Cole told House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee chairman Rep. Jim Jordan at a hearing Thursday on the DOJ’s response to the wave of computer crashes at the IRS that wiped out seven different employees’ hard drives.

Is there a lock on computers where different IDs and passwords can be used to retrieve email or do they all have separate email servers for their 112,000 plus employees.
If off site backup service was cancelled two weeks AFTER the Lerner crash, why has the back up server not been compelled to submit copies of emails?

The DOJ has been investigating for over a year and they did not themselves request copies of these emails? That tells me they aren´t doing a lot of investigating. They may have opened an investigation but that is for the sole purpose of avoiding questions that may be asked of the administration. How many times have we heard, "We cannot comment on an open investigation"? Holder and Obama are not stupid. They are running out the clock and obstructing in any way they can.

Our beloved Department of Injustice is obviously conducting a faux investigation of IRS abuse. Tea Party groups that were violated say they have never been contacted regarding their abuse. Justice is becoming a more rare commodity by the day. Meanwhile Captain Zero shoots baskets, plays a lot of golf, and laughs hysterically often.

There must be an assumption of guilt in this situation. In fact, the emails were so bad that they preferred the assumption of guilt over the potential for felony charges.

The old school version of this is a court order to produce paper files followed by a bonfire of all files on the topic. Everyone knew that the files would be so damning that they could not risk their being seen.

It doesn´t matter where they heard about it. What matters is that they have shown absolutely no interest in pursuing it. Nor have they shown any interest in interviewing any of the wronged parties.

What kind of investigation is that? Answer: it´s not an investigation, it´s a slow motion coverup.

It´s a funny thing about trying to find something that is missing. If you don´t look, it will never be found.

That´s what they are hoping for and why the DOJ no longer has any credibility and cannot be expected to selfie police the WH´s actions.

To me, the most mind boggling fact in all of this is that they must really think that we will believe all of the crap they spill out. I mean, just think. What are the odds that SEVEN computer drives, all containing the same data, would crash all at the same time? And would be physically be destroyed too? And then they have the gonads to go on and tell us that they didn´t know anything about it until they saw it on the news. Well, if that is the case, then just WHO did know about it when it happened?

By definition, plausible deniability has to be plausible.

The "heard it on TV" argument for everything from Fast and Furious to the missing emails fails the White House and the DOJ in two ways:
1. The argument is not plausible.
2. It is an open admission that they are lying when they say they don´t watch Fox News. If they only watch the MSN networks they would not hear about it at all.

Sometimes I wonder if modern feminists are really a bunch of fun-loving, hyper-aware pranksters, conspiring to hoist an elaborate hoax upon the world. “Oh, Amanda, be real,” someone might type in a secret feminist chat room, chortling over a Diet Coke. “Isn’t this piece calling babies ‘time-sucking monsters’ that should die so you can freely watch “True Detective” a little over the top?” Another chat participant, reviewing a call for legalized abortion until birth, would type swiftly and frantically: “Jessica, come on, seriously? Don’t publish this—they’ll finally figure out that it’s all a joke!” Alas, I don’t think they’re messing

The news from Ferguson, Mo., has brought back unpleasant memories from the long-ago riots in Asbury Park, N.J. It was the summer of 1970, and I was a young teenager close enough to the action to be appropriately frightened. The riots I remember were also fueled by racial grievances, and there were similar issues with white officers and black rioters. And, just like the sad story unfolding in Missouri, a reporter was arrested in the Asbury Park riots. The claim is that he was "interfering with the police." There were other similarities as well, especially the confusion and competing storylines. An

Salt: good? Bad? Both! It will kill you no matter what you do. For decades now, the "accepted" medical advice on recommended salt intake has fluctuated like a bobblehead doll, and the media´s alarmist coverage has fluctuated right along in lockstep. (Christ, a scroll through the Gawker.com/salt page will show you enough contradictory advice to condone and/ or forbid putting anything at all into your mouth, and swallowing it.) Fortunately for all of us—especially "we the media," who hit a real slow patch this time of year—there is a huge new study out about salt consumption. What do you need to

Lauren Bacall died this week at age 89. Her obituaries are paying tribute to a glamorous actress, a famed star from Hollywood’s Golden Age, the wife of Humphrey Bogart, and a lifetime liberal. She’s also being celebrated by liberals as a fighter for freedom in the arts, one who bravely confronted the closed-minded anti-communists in Washington—a stoic battler against Joe McCarthy and his “witch hunts.” Sorry, but reality is more complicated. The facts are that Lauren Bacall herself learned the truth about communism in Hollywood. She admitted to being badly duped by bad guys. She learned her lesson, even as her fellow

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Democrats fighting for revenues from oil companies here are reaching out to an old foe: Sarah Palin. The former GOP governor is a natural ally in a ballot fight to restore a law she signed in 2007 that implemented steep and progressive taxes on the biggest Alaska oil producers. Statehouse Republicans replaced her structure with one backed by oil producers, who are the largest contributors to the $14.4 million effort to defeat an Aug. 19 referendum to revert to the Palin-era oil-tax code.

Keep an eye on Minnesota. The state that gave us Michele Bachmann and Jesse Ventura just might decide to dump funnyman Al Franken from the Senate. Most pundits think that challenger Mike McFadden is, at best, a long shot. I don’t think so. In several polls the incumbent, a former Saturday Night Live star, can’t break the 50% mark. Given his narrow victory in 2008 (which some say wasn’t a real victory), it’s probably not that surprising that Mr. Franken is still a polarizing figure. But after six years in the Senate, one might expect that the incumbent would have built a more comfortable

California lawmakers are poised to enact a regulation requiring every college and university that receives public funding to define consensual sex in a way that attempts to micro-manage everyone’s sexual affairs. The first-in-the-nation legislation already passed California’s state Senate by a vote of 27-4 in May, The Associated Press reports. If the bill passes the assembly this month, it will then go to the desk of Gov. Jerry Brown. The bill, which is based on guidance from the Obama administration, requires an “affirmative consent standard” that school administrators would use to determine whether a sexual assault has occurred. The standard would define

A Travis County grand jury today indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest. Grand jurors charged Perry, 63, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official. The indictments stemmed from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.2 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget. The money was earmarked for the state’s Public Integrity Unit, which is housed in Lehmberg’s office. Perry’s veto forced

FERGUSON, Mo. — The friend who was with Michael Brown when he was shot and killed by a police officer near St. Louis over the weekend is reportedly confirming that he and Brown had taken part in the theft of cigars from a convenience store that day. That word comes from the attorney for Dorian Johnson, speaking to MSNBC. Police in Ferguson had earlier announced that Brown was suspected of taking cigars from the convenience store in what was described as a "strong-arm robbery." Brown´s family is accusing police of trying to draw attention away from the shooting.

This is ridiculous. AUSTIN (KXAN) – A grand jury has handed up an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. Perry wanted Lehmberg to resign because she had been busted for drunk driving. It’s not good to have a drunk driver, captured on camera abusing the officers who arrested her, heading up the Public Integrity Unit. At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit

A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, indicted Governor Rick Perry today. Why? For exercising his constitutional prerogative by threatening to veto, and then vetoing, an appropriation to support the public corruption unit in Travis County’s district attorney’s office. This followed the arrest of the county’s district attorney, Democratic Party activist Rosemary Lehmberg, for drunk driving, after she was found “with an open bottle of vodka in the front passenger seat of her car in a church parking lot in Austin.” Ms. Lehmberg served 45 days in jail.The Travis County district attorney’s office has long been a cesspool of corruption.

The scandal that erupted Friday night involved millions of dollars, statehouse power plays—oh yeah, and alcohol, police, and masks. Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted Friday on charges of abuse of power—a first degree felony—and coercion—a third degree felony. The charges stem from a 2013 scandal that has been quietly rumbling in the Lone Star State as Perry has been floated as a viable contender for the Republican nomination in 2016. This is a complex case, which might be why it has not made national headlines the way other recent, state-level scandals (like Bridgegate, in New Jersey) have. Below, I have outlined

One person was shot and seven people arrested early this morning as police used smoke and tear gas to impose a curfew following the killing of an unarmed black teenager. Officers are seeking the person who shot the critically-wounded victim after the 12am-5am curfew took hold in Ferguson, Missouri - eight days after Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead by police. Police said their strong response came after people broke into a restaurant and took position on the roof overlooking officers, while another man flashed a handgun as armoured vehicles approached.

They say a prosecutor could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this always seemed like hyperbole, until Friday night a Texas grand jury announced an indictment of governor Rick Perry. The “crime” for which Perry faces a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison is vetoing funding for a state agency. The conventions of reporting — which treat the fact of an indictment as the primary news, and its merit as a secondary analytic question — make it difficult for people reading the news to grasp just how farfetched this indictment is.

Police today named Darren Wilson as the officer who fatally shot Michael Brown and released video stills and an incident report on a robbery shortly before the shooting that named the teenager as the ‘primary suspect’. In a shocking twist to the killing which sparked riots in St Louis over the last few days, the officer investigating the convenience store robbery also attended the scene of the shooting and said the suspect and Brown were the same person. According to the police report, video shows Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson having an altercation with store staff and allegedly stealing box of Swisher Sweets,
