The IRS had a contract with email backup service vendor Sonasoft starting in 2005, according to FedSpending.org, which lists the contract as being for “automatic data processing services.” Sonasoft’s motto is “email archiving done right,” and the company lists the IRS as a customer.
For proof, Twitchy posted this tweet from 2009, in which Sonasoft promoted their relationship with the IRS:
If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to backup their servers why wouldn’t you choose them to protect your severs? http://www.sonasoft.com

But, after six years, the agency apparently ended the contract with Sonasoft soon after investigators started looking into the IRS’s alleged targeting of conservative groups.
Let me say it one more time, with feeling:
C’mon, Congress!!!! Quit calling in the chiefs, who have been endlessly prepped and prodded on how to obfuscate and bluster in ways that stall the process.
When will Congress get it into their thick skulls: These people are fighting for their lives… they know this is worse than Watergate, and they are going to do everything they can to continue destroying evidence, and lying way past when Cliven Bundy’s cows come home.
If these criminals are not pursued with equal passion, they will get away with it. Someone has to actually believe in truth, justice and the American way. Perhaps the problem is that no one does anymore.
Pull in every peon IT guy associated with the IRS who had any contact with this stuff. Scare the bejeebers out of them with legitimate threats of prosecution if they don’t tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
Someone will roll over on these liars, but you have to play hardball.
