IRS Commissioner John Koskinen seemed to have no answers, surprisingly, when questioned last night. He shifted and dodged blame like a professional democratic politician when asked questions.
He thought there was no wrongdoing going on at the IRS. Why? Common sense told him so. What? Did they even bother to look?
Let’s not forget the ‘missing’ e-mails from Lois Lerner and six other IRS employees. Again, Koskinen failed to answer questions here, even stating that the IRS is underfunded. How much more funding do they need? According to their budget, they operate on over $13 billion and yet, can’t properly secure their e-mails in backups?
Final thought in regards to the e-mails. Did the IRS violate Records Management by Federal Agencies (44 U.S.C Chapter 31) by failing to have the proper backups for their e-mails?
Simply put, this seems to be another do as I say, not as I do. However, if they can’t even backup their e-mails safely, how much confidence should I place in them receiving, processing, and storing my tax records?
