John Koskinen's testimony before the House Ways & Means Committee basically came down to "The Dog Ate My Emails", infuriating when you consider that the IRS demands all Americans keep all financial records for up to 7 years for possible review by the IRS, while the IRS was free to dispose of embarrassing and criminal evidence at their discretion. Worse, apparently emboldened by Attorney General Eric Holser's steadfast refusal to allow the Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation into the IRS' actions (possibly to to the DOJ's own complicity in siccing the FBI on Obama's enemies), Koskinin refused to even apologize for the lost emails, barely able to keep the smirk off of his face!
Then, Friday afternoon, Peter Suderman posted an article at Reason.com that proved the IRS had an ongoing contract with a private company to back up the IRS servers, including the Microsoft Exchange system used to handle the IRS emails! This article was an instant sensation and was quickly reported by the Independent Media on the internet.
Shortly afterwards the original article at Reason.com was taken down, and the URL produced a 404 "file not found" error. But by then it was too late as the original article was already duplicated at my web site and other locations. The copies spreading across the net made it very clear that the report would not be silenced, and realizing that the act of trying to erase the original was propelling the story, the original post was restored to Reason.com later that same day.
The story is going viral across the net today. By tomorrow the corporate media will have to cover it. That means Issa and Ryan will have no choice but to call the IRS on their obvious lie that there are no backups for the missing emails. Please share with all of your social media. I will keep this story at the top of the main page for a while, New stories will start just below.
