Posted By Patrick Howley On 10:40 PM 07/27/2014 In | No Comments




After The Daily Caller reported last week that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer hard drive was “scratched” and then “shredded,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified before Congress that “I assume there’s a lot of ways that hard drives can get scratched.”

Koskinen might technically be right about that, but he left out one detail: it’s a really difficult thing to do.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

it's exceedingly hard to "scratch" a hard disk unless you open it up.
