House Republicans are asking some very pointed questions of the IRS… like – can we really believe that within 10 days of Congressman Dave Camp (R-MI) asking the IRS for Lois Lerner’s emails, her hard drive crashed?
How probable is that?
I mean really, what are the odds?
From Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL):
Do you believe the IRS Is telling the truth about having “lost” key emails regarding the investigation into the agency’s targeting of Americans? What are the odds that Lois Lerner’s hard drive crashed ten days after Dave Camp sent the IRS a letter requesting that all emails be preserved? What are the odds that technicians would not be able to recover *any* of the data contained on the hard drive?
Thanks to my friend and MIT graduate Congressman Thomas Massie, who calculated the probability that such events occurred innocently, we can safely say that the odds that the IRS is telling the truth is roughly one one-hundredth of one percent.
Would the IRS ever accept an explanation that is so improbable from a taxpayer?
Speaking of Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY), here is his interaction with the head of the IRS that likely inspired Congressman DeSantis to make his short speech on the House floor.
The truth is that in the IRS Scandal, the odds are that the IRS is lying to us.
