At least the people in this administration are consistent.  Whenever confronted with the option of admitting they are evil versus admitting they are incompetent, they opt for incompetence.  Funny.  By sheer coincidence, incompetence doesn't seem to be impeachable, whereas evil is.

true, but then again, incompetence is a much easier sell to the non-aligned voters than is evil and impeachment.

Emails have senders and recipients. Who are the senders, and who are the recipients of all of these "missing" emails? It seems to me that the other (non-IRS official) party - whether sender or recipient - might be able to provide the "missing" information. Yeah, you'd think.

I think these are intra-agency emails, so most likely the accounts of both sender and recipient(s) have been scrubbed.

In theory, this could be hundreds of email accounts. How incredibly convenient.

You start with the knowns - their email accounts - and for each email you wish to redact you cull the recipient(s) email accounts for that email and then search each account for forwards or replies that went to someone other than those listed on the initial email.  Just to be sure, you would build a list of all email accounts that were involved in any one of the emails you wish to redact; you would then go through each account searching for anything that's approximately like the emails you're trying to erase - that will probably result in several thousand emails, many of them not germane to the target.  you would then have live eyes go through each captured email to sort the wheat from the chaff.

I'm not sure it is incompetence.  All of those missing emails on the IRS servers went someplace else, and it is those that tell part of this tale as well.  This is not evil, and it is not incompetence.  This is deliberate damage control and obfuscation.  The more time that passes, the dimmer these events appear and are more easily manipulated with political spin. 

Drag it out as long as possible, flood the investigators with as much useless paper as possible, brag about how many tens of thousands of pages of "data" you have released, and double-damn the Republicans for buying so much wasted paper with the hardworking taxpayer's dollar...

So it goes, deliberately.

My original post was intended as sarcasm.  I guess that didn't come through.  In truth, I agree with you that "This is deliberate damage control and obfuscation."  However, I would add that it is being done to hide evil.

Is it entirely useless to point out that if any previous Administration had been involved in this kind of behavior (and that goes for both parties) all Hell would have broken loose?
 
Now, thanks to the efforts of the Obama Syndicate, we just shrug off the effects of once again having been mugged, assume that the news media won't give a shit, and move on to the outrage that awaits around the next corner.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.
