I’m a DOJ lawyer, so you obviously cannot use my name or any identifying information. But the idea that a ‘hard drive crash’ somehow destroyed all of Ms. Lerner’s intra-government email correspondence during the period in question [2009-2011] is laughable. Government email servers are backed up every night. So if she actually had a hard drive fail, her emails would be recoverable from the backup. If the backup was somehow also compromised, then we are talking about a conspiracy.
I’m serious about your keeping any identifying information out of the media. Things are very, very bad.
