What is the mathematical probability of Lois Lerner's hard drive & six of her subordinate's hard drives simultaneously crashing?

... along with the hard drives of all the recipients, too. And, all backup/archive files simultaneously became non-functional.

On June 20, 2014, the smirking IRS Commissioner, John Koskinen, said the following the the U.S. Congress:

"I'm advised the actual hard drive, after it was determined that it was dysfunctional and that, with experts, no emails could be retrieved, was recycled then destroyed in the normal process."

    It is not possible. Anybody knows that. The Dems are depending on their low information voters to soak it up. And they will. All backups are tapes that are recording daily or weekly. Then stored separately.

    By the way, it is against the law to not have them backed up.

    The only way for that to be possible is through cyber attack or hacking....and considering that our last head of DHS said that we were in for cyber attacks and things like that, it is possible....especially if no one paid attention to her warning...The thing is, if that was lost, other things were as well. The only other alternative was that the system was tampered with from inside the government, IF all of those things occurred at the same time.

    In my eyes, either way, an investigation should have been done to see what caused this to happen, when it happened...and the fact that they did nothing about it when it, is downright scary.

    The Infinite Monkey Theorem explains the likelihood of such an event. Where there is smoke there is fire and where there are bulls there is BS. In any case, why did they lie about it? Lerner is up to her eyeballs in IRS corruption and will end up in prison.

    There is no evidence that any hard drives were affected other than Lerner's. This was a right wing claim, picked up by right wing blogs, but never verified and certainly never discussed during the congressional testimony, as it is fake.......which is why the IRS commissioner discusses only ONE hard drive, not multiple hard drives, and why republicans never refuted his comment during the congressional hearings on June 20th.

    The mathematical probability of one hard drive being corrupted over the course of decades of use is very high. It also happened throughout the previous president's reign, back when Issa and his fellow republicans said it was a waste of time and money to investigate lost emails.

    I'd say it's up there with the likelihood that Obama is an honest man

    About as likely as Obama releasing his school records.

    The emails are all stored on the same server rufus. Not on the individual client machines. You think your Yahoo emails are on your client machine don't you? Of course you do.
