This administration seems to have a pattern…lies, lies and more lies and then destroy the evidence at all costs. It looks like Hillary Clinton wasn’t the only one to wipe the server or a device clean. The IRS did the same thing with Lois Lerner’s Blackberry. This is just more evidence of Obama’s “most transparent administration in history”.
But why would you wipe a device clean IF you had NOTHING to hide?
Why did the IRS wipe out Lois Lerner’s Blackberry shortly after congressional staffers interviewed the then-IRS official about suspected targeting of conservative groups?
H/T The Washington Post:
So far, the IRS has provided no answer.
The issue came to light last month after U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered the IRS to explain its efforts to recover emails that went missing when the former official’s hard drive crashed in 2011.
Sullivan is presiding over a lawsuit against the IRS from the conservative legal group Judicial Watch, which wants to obtain Lerner’s e-mails. The organization suspects that the Blackberry may contain duplicates of communications that were lost when Lerner’s hard drive crashed in 2011.
In response to the judge’s order, a top IRS official said in a signed declaration that the agency has no record of attempting to recover data from the mobile device.
IRS attorney Thomas J. Kane said in a separate declaration that the agency “removed or wiped clean” information from the Blackberry in June 2012, shortly after congressional staffers questioned Lerner about the targeting allegations and in the same month that the IRS inspector general began examining the issue.
That’s right. The device was wiped clean AFTER they summoned Lois Lerner and AFTER they questioned her about reports of the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups. The key word is: AFTER. If that were you or I in a similar situation, we would have been put in jail for INTENTIONALLY destroying evidence. It’s a crime! The IRS committed a crime! Lois Lerner also committed a crime! She said there was NO evidence available at the time of her questioning, but IN FACT the evidence WAS there! It wasn’t destroyed until AFTER her testimony.

You see the pattern, right? Lies, lies and more lies and then destroy any and all evidence leading to the truth. So much for the “most transparent administration in history”, unless of course, by tranparent you mean “wipe out” the truth or just “play dumb”.
… like Hillary did when asked if she “wiped the server clean”:
How stupid do Democrats, Obama and Clinton think the average Americans really are? ….”like with a cloth or something?” Seriously?
Clinton is a Yale Law School graduate, post-graduate and even taught criminal law. She is not stupid. Get real!
Whether it’s a device, a paper trail or a human being with information that could incriminate her, it doesn’t matter…she’s going to destroy it. The Democrats are no different.
Obama can talk about all his wonderful and TRANSPARENT administration, but let’s be honest. Obama’s administration and Hillary Clinton have been THE MOST NON-TRANSPARENT administration in history. All the lies are just sickening…like Benghazi.
This administration will do ANYTHING at ANY COST to avoid telling the truth because they know they can get away with it. It’s just one scandal after another, but hey according to Obama it’s the “most transparent administration in history”.
