    Contractor: Easy to find Lerner's 'lost' emails 'Very unlikely' they're 'not stored o

    H2 Note: Has it dawned on anyone that the same political party that has sworn to destroy the Tea Part (hint: that would be Mitch McConnel and the GOP), is the same political party in charge of investigating the IRS for illegally targeting the . .. Tea Party?


    Contractor: Easy to find Lerner's 'lost' emails
    'Very unlikely' they're 'not stored on backup machine'

    Alana Cook

    WASHINGTON – The CEO of a major a federal contractor, which has several contracts with the Treasury Department, says it should be relatively easy for IRS contractors to retrieve the “lost” emails of Lois Lerner, the IRS official at the center of the tea party-targeting scandal.

    Ron Gula is CEO and chief technical officer of Tenable Network Security, an information technology services company nestled in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., that has major contracts with many federal agencies, including the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service and United States Mint.

    “It is very unlikely that the emails in question are not stored on a backup machine someplace else,” Gula told WND.

    Gula also said questions about the lost emails from Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa, R-Calif., for Monday evening’s hearing are spot on.
    Over the weekend, Issa called IRS Commissioner John Koskinen to testify Monday evening about the IRS’ “email systems, data retention policies, and document production processes.”

    “Because the IRS has refused to provide basic information about these matters to the committee in advance of the hearing, and in the interest of promoting a frank and thorough discussion at the hearing, I ask that you provide answers to the factual questions posed below,” Issa said in a letter to Koskinen.

    In his letter, Issa asked Koskinen to provide further details about the “failure of the hard drive,” identify employees involved in examining the hard drive, explain steps taken by the IRS to recover the information and give dates of those attempts. He also asked for the identities of all IRS employees who had any role or responsibility in maintaining or servicing IRS email servers since 2009 and for other details on the IRS archival systems.

    After reviewing the letter, Gula said, “Many of the questions outlined for [Monday's] session are on the right track.” He said the emails in question could also be stored on any number of laptops and systems such as spam filters, which process email throughout the IRS.

    Gula noted that because IRS contractors have the same access as employees to email systems, there shouldn’t be any issue retrieving lost data.

    “In my experience, contractors who were authorized to do work for organizations like the IRS have full access to email and corporate resources,” he said.

    To make email work for an organization the size of the IRS, Gula said, “there must be a great deal of redundancy and separate systems to deliver email reliably.”
    WND found that several large corporations hold the IRS’ Total Information Processing Services, or TIPSS-4, contract to handle the IRS’ email servers and provide staff to work, in many cases, on site at IRS offices.

    Those companies include: Accenture, Unisys, AT&T Government Solutions, Avaya Government Solutions, Booz Allen Hamilton, CGI Federal, Computer Sciences Corp., Deloitte Consulting, General Dynamics, HP Enterprises, IBM, Leidos, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman Systems and Pragmatics.
    Issa called an archivist from the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration and invited White House counsel Jennifer O’Connell to testify Monday in a continuation of the investigation.

    Mark Levin: Democrat Response to House IRS Email Inquiry a 'Cover-up,' 'Criminal Corruption'

    On his Monday radio show, conservative talk show Mark Levin reacted to how congressional Democrats in a House Oversight Hearing had conducted themselves earlier over the committee’s inquiry into missing emails related to an investigation of former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner.

    Levin said it was clear to him the response from congressional Democrats was orchestrated in advance in tandem with the highest level of the Obama White House to obstruct the inquiry into the Internal Revenue Service missing emails congressional hearing.
    “So let me be very blunt about it – the Democratic Party now is conducting itself as the mob,” Levin said. “The Democratic Party is in a full-scale cover-up on this scandal – even more than Benghazi, on the IRS scandal. The Democratic Party is in full cover-up mode, whether it’s the in-Justice Department and that fraud Eric Holder, whether it’s the Internal Revenue Service and the frauds running that operation, whether it’s the frauds in and around the White House, whether it’s the frauds in Congress – that’s right.”
    “This is no damn joke,” he added. “You have a political party that is corrupt to the core, corrupt to the core. I get furious with the Republican Party’s incompetence. This party, the Democrat Party is corrupt to the core and is involved in a criminal corruption. That’s right, I said it. Missing emails, destroyed hard drives, they won’t bring in the FBI, citizens intimidated, citizens threatened, the attorney general sitting on his ass doing nothing, the president of the United States sending signals – ‘there’s not a smidgeon of anything wrong here.’ The word gets out – the Democrats out in full-obstruction cover-up mode.”

    I would classify these charges in the section with Watergate charges. Why not contract an outside contractor to find them. Empower with with congressional subpoena authority, and get on with it. I wonder if Republicans are not just basking in the moment. Action speaks louder than words.

    OHHH, election year, cannot instigate any action to lengthen their 93 day work year. Or was it 96? If they do not take action I have to assume it is political mud-slinging.
