There is absolutely no way those emails could be lost. Backups of data is a key feature of all computer systems these days, especially email. Email servers are backed up daily, weekly and monthly. Moreover, those backups are required to be taken offsite, in the case of a local disaster. This system didn't just evolve that way by happenstance, it was mandated by the federal government!
To suggest that a simple hard drive failure caused the loss of key emails is absurd on its face. If a corporation tried to use this excuse in an IRS or SEC investigation, the key executives would be put in jail.
It's time for John Boehner to get off his ass and form a Select Committee in the House of Representatives to investigate the IRS's targeting of conservative groups. This committee needs to secure all backups AND hard drives at the IRS to ensure that data is not lost in its investigation.
I can't convey the anger I feel. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the Obama administration is truly a criminal enterprise and needs to be prosecuted under the RICO Act!
