Archivist of the U.S. David Ferriero Testifies to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Lois Lerner Lost Emails … ” IRS Didn’t Follow the Law “

 

IMAGINE THAT, THE OBAMA IRS BROKE THE LAW …

On Tuesday, David Ferriero, the top United States archivist of federal records, told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that the IRS broke the law when it failed to report loss of emails. David S. Ferriero, the chief archivist at the National Archives said, “In accordance with the Federal Records Act, when an agency becomes aware of an incident of unauthorized destruction, they must report the incident to us.” Ferriero told the House Oversight Committee that federal agencies are supposed to report whenever their records are destroyed or even accidentally deleted; however, he stated that nobody told the National Archives after emails from IRS official Lois Lerner vanished after a computer failure in 2011. Imagine that? How about the six others whose computers miraculously crashed as well? Were they reported?

The top U.S. official in charge of archiving federal records testified Tuesday that the IRS ran afoul of the law by neglecting to tell his office that a trove of emails from the woman at the center of the targeting scandal disappeared after an apparent hard drive crash.

Archivist of the U.S. David Ferriero, speaking before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, made clear that federal agencies are supposed to report whenever their records are destroyed or even accidentally deleted. But he said that after emails from embattled IRS official Lois Lerner vanished after a computer failure in 2011, nobody told the National Archives.

“They did not follow the law,” Ferriero said.

      The entire IRS does not follow the law or their own written regulations. How could they with over 70,000 pages of regulations? It is time that the people recognized this.

      There should be a complete reset of this agency with a simple tax- either a flat tax or a national sales tax to be collected and administered by the individual states. This would also put a stop to the practice of “ear-marks” in the congress.
