Emails don't just disappear in a puff of smoke when a hard drive crashes. That's not how the internet works. It's how the Obama administration wants you to the think the internet works, but that's not how the internet actually works.
Now, the Justice Department is admitting just that.
from National Review:
A Justice Department official admitted that former IRS official Lois Lerner's apparently missing e-mails actually exist on a backup server, but the government doesn't plan to retrieve them.
"A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there's a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating," Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Fox News's Shannon Bream.
"But it would be too hard to go get Lois Lerner's e-mails from that backup system," Fitton continued, paraphrasing the DOJ official. "So, everything we've been hearing about scratched hard drives, about missing e-mails of Lois Lerner, other IRS officials, other officials in the Obama administration, it's all been a pack of malarkey. They could get these records, but they don't want to."read the rest
Americans can be thankful to Judicial Watch for the tireless efforts they have made towards holding the government accountable. At some point, we will get to the bottom of the IRS targeting of Conservative groups, and we will hold those responsible accountable.
