The twisted frustration of Issa, not being able to lead a witness, was on full display. His short temper is easily exposed, when the answers he wants to hear don't exist. Except in his echo-chamber head. There has never been a bigger failure leading a House investigation committee.

Non scandal??? Thousands of "missing" or "lost" emails that occurred after it was known there would be an investigation? Crash? Unless IRS workers are going to sites like topix where would an IRS computer get a virus that would "crash" it or a server.

This is worse than an 18 minute gap in a tape.

Haven't said how it was a non issue other than saying it was a non issue. I'll admit there might be some grandstanding in the congressional hearings but the answers/stories the IRS witnesses are giving are laughable if not insulting.

Because the IRS says they found no wrong doing we are to believe them??? Because?..They are a government agency??? The IRS Commissioner doesn't seem to know the right or wrong. If nothing else the Commissioner and agency come off as incompetent which opens the door to all kinds of crap.

Its so laughably obvious Obama ordered the emails and hard drive be destroyed so he doesn't go to jail for illegally using the IRS to block tea party donations from Romney and other Conservative candidates.

IMPEACH OBAMA NOW!!

Way worse. Emails are not stored on PCs. A PC crash would not take out the mail. It sure would not do it for just the folks under the investigation. Someone is covering or the head of the IRS gave direction to her IT employees to destroy the mail. That in turn would be the same as destroying goverment property as the mail is gov property.

This would take deleting the mail on a server and verifying the replicated copy was also deleted if the had any type of HA set up; for each person. Then the archived\journaled mail would also need to be deleted and the backups. Too much to hope for and it sure could not be cased by drive crashes on individual PCs.

The only way this would work was if the IRS had such a messed up system, that they allowed users to move mail to local pst files. Had no journaling or mail retention or tracking and did not back up. And they are reponsible for everyones taxes???????
