So what are you going to do about it Ryan?

My guess is nothing. Also, Ryan should consult with an IT professional before he gets up there and grandstands. He should ask him about their disaster recovery strategy. If he does not know then subpoena the IRS CIO. I have been in IT for 20 years and I would bet a year's salary the IRS has disaster recovery strategy. Every large organization does. It is likely all data is backed up to tape and moved offsite every morning/night. There is an entire industry that caters to this and it would be the highest level of incompetence if the IRS does not have the most advanced DR strategy out there. If the emails are not on tape off site somewhere then the only conclusion you can draw is that they were intentionally deleted. So, if that is the case - what are you going to do about it Ryan? Nothing - again, I'd bet a year's salary they will do nothing. I hope I am wrong.
