Bombshell: IRS cancelled email backup contract just weeks after Lois
Lerner's computer 'crashed'
By Thomas Lifson
Nothing suspicious here, at least to Democrats and mainstream media
types. But it would be interesting to see the paperwork leading to this
contract termination, since the IRS is required by law to backup its
communications. (via Patrick Howley of the Daily Caller):
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled its longtime
relationship with an email-storage contractorDescription:

after ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly
before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed. (snip)
Sonasoft’s six-year businessDescription:
with the IRS came to an abrupt end at the close of fiscal year
2011, as congressional investigators began looking into the IRS
conservative targeting scandal and IRS employees’ computers
started crashing left and right.
Sonasoft’s fiscal year 2011 contract with the IRS ended on
August 31, 2011. Eight days later, the IRS officially closed out
its relationship with Sonasoft in accordance with the federal
government’s contract close-out guidelines, which require
agencies to fully audit their contracts and to get back

used by the contractor. Curiously, the IRS de-allocated 36 cents
when it closed out its contract with Sonasoft on September 8,
Lois Lerner’s computer allegedly crashed in June 2011, just ten
days after House Ways and Means Committee chairman Rep. Dave
Camp first wrote a letter asking if the IRS was engaging in
targeting of nonprofit groups. Two months later, Sonasoft’s
contract ended and the IRS gave its email-archiving contractor
IRS official and frequent White House visitor Nikole Flax
allegedly suffered her own computer crash in December 2011,
three months after the IRS ended its relationship with Sonasoft.
Was Sonasoft required to purge its records? If so, why? What did the IRS
do with the backup records?
