But there’s more to this drama – and it’s (go figure) political.  Sonasoft is a small company, founded and run in Silicon Valley by a Mr. Nand (Andy) Khanna.

  It isn’t clear whether Andy Khanna is any relation to Rohit (Ro) Khanna, a Pennsylvania-born attorney who served as an Obama appointee in the U.S. Department of Commerce, and is now a Democratic candidate for the House of Representatives in the 17th district of California (in Silicon Valley). 

But what is clear is that the two other members of Sonasoft’s board of directors – the members other than Andy Khanna – are both working hard to get Ro Khanna elected.

Here are the players.  On the Sonasoft board of directors, Dr. Romesh K. Japra, M.D., is the chairman of the board. 

The board director is Mr. Romi Randhawa, whose day job is president and CEO of HPM Networks, another Silicon Valley IT company.

And then there’s Ro Khanna.  Khanna has connections to Obama that go way back, to Obama’s first run for the Illinois state senate, when Khanna was at the University of Chicago as an undergrad.   Will Burns, a Chicago Democratic political operative, recruited Khanna to walk precincts with Obama during the campaign, and Khanna was reportedly star-struck …

On that Kerry LGBT comment, he said: "THE WONDERFUL THING ABOUT THIS IS NOBODY LOOKS AT THESE FOLKS WHEN THEY'RE OUT THERE AND SAYS, 'WOW. THAT'S A GREAT LGBT DIPLOMAT.' (Sorry about the caps.)

--Chelsea Clinton or Kim Kardashian? Take your pick as to whom has done less to make more in such a short time.--

No contest. KimK is quite pleasant to look at and has provided innumerable pleasant viewing hours to her admittedly clueless fans. I think she also has several business lines providing whatever it is her clueless fans buy from her.

Chelsea, through no fault of her own, provides a rather less pleasant buena vista, but also apparently couldn't even please the two or three fans who ever actually saw her broadcast career.

On top of that, there is about zero chance KimK will ever afflict us with some state compelled do gooderism whereas the certainty of a Clinton doing so approaches one.

Thomas Collins

I have no ill will towards Chelsea Clinton, and my memory is, for all their faults, the Clintons did not use her as a campaign prop when she was a child. Be that as it may, if I had to bet on who had the higher IQ, I'd bet on Mrs. West. Not that I think a higher IQ means necessarily a better character, but I think Mrs. West's career as a reality figure is no less indicative of smarts than Chelsea Clinton's career as a member of the prog gentry class. And when I hear them speak, I sense more brainpower in Mrs. West. As to how that brainpower is being used, given my low opinion of today's gentry class, I think a reality star adds more value to society than a mundane gentry class career.

Thomas Collins

And if it's Mrs. West vs. Pinch Sulzberger, well, if value added to the public discourse above replacement public figure is the standard, it's Mrs. West by a landslide.

Cecil Turner

I have no ill will towards Chelsea Clinton . . .

Captain Hate

my memory is, for all their faults, the Clintons did not use her as a campaign prop when she was a child.

I don't think that's true per se when you consider the Clintoons are in the campaign mode 24/7. They made it known that the press was to be hand's off in coverage so they were sure to have her involved whenever they didn't want to be peppered with questions. And she was presented positively in staged settings.

They never shamelessly inflicted her on the public like Harry Truman did his daughter's mediocre/horrid singing but that was a particularly high bar to cross.

Staffers At Martha’s Vineyard Resort: Obamas Fought A Lot, Slept In Different Rooms…

But Michelle seems like such a delightful person to be around.

Via Daily Caller:

President Obama and wife Michelle slept in separate bedrooms due to a marital fight during a first-term Martha’s Vineyard vacation, according to an excerpt from Ed Klein’s newly released book “Blood Feud.”

“They slept in their own bedrooms,” a Blue Heron Farm staffer told Klein for his expose on the Obamas’ relationship with Bill and Hillary Clinton, released Monday. “They both had stacks of books by their beds. The president was reading The Bayou Trilogy by Daniel Woodrell and Rodin’s Debutante by Ward Just. I don’t know if they visited each other’s bedroom at night, but I didn’t see any signs of that.”

“The president ate in bed,” the staffer added. “You had to change the sheets every day. He smoked cigarettes and didn’t try to hide it at all. And he snores. I heard him. He ate a lot of junk food, chips and stuff. He loved fudge and bought it from Murdick’s Fudge. It was a wonder that he stayed so thin.” [...]

“The Obamas seemed like they were bickering a lot, but they whispered so you couldn’t exactly hear what it was about,” the staffer said. “But I can tell when people are pissed off at each other, and they seemed to be pissed a lot.”

Threadkiller

I think the potential lie was regarding the IRS' obligation to retain certain documents. He said emails did not fall under the letter of the law in his written opening statement and it seems he "misspoke/miswrote/did not understand/was misled/forced rape..."

windansea

IRS Commissioner:

In discussing document retention at the IRS, it is important to point out that our email system is not being used as an electronic record keeping system. Furthermore, it should be remembered that not all emails on IRS servers or backup tapes qualify as an “official record,” which is defined (in 44 U.S.C. 3301) as any documentary material made or received by an agency under federal law or in connection with the transaction of public business and appropriate for preservation. Accordingly, our agency’s email system is not designed to preserve email. Rather, email that qualifies as “records” are printed and retained in compliance with relevant records control schedules. Individual employees are responsible for ensuring that any email in their possession that qualifies as a “record” is retained in accordance with the requirements in the Internal Revenue Manual and Document 12990 (Record Control Schedules).

IRS Manual:

2.Records created within e-mail systems, which meet the criteria of a federal record, are subject to the same retention periods as the paper or hard-copy versions. Therefore, these records must be retained electronically according to the NARA-approved disposition authority or printed and associated with the appropriate recordkeeping system. Temporary e-mail records can be deleted only when they are eligible for destruction or when they have been printed and associated with the appropriate recordkeeping system. See additional information on the retention and transfer of permanent electronic records in subsection IRM 1.15.6.11.

Extraneus

So if the rule is that "records" must be printed out, and the manual states that email records can be deleted when they've been printed out, where's the inconsistency?

jimmyk

It seems that the only issue is what qualifies as "records." The IRS seems to be deciding that after the fact: If it was deleted, it wasn't a "record." How convenient is that?

Extraneus

Hillary is tone deaf. Instead of simply saying "We've been very fortunate," she tries to claim they haven't. They were "dead broke" when they left the white house. They're not "truly well off." They did it "through dint of hard work."

What boxing commentators call 'leading with her chin.'

James D.

Hillary is tone deaf. Instead of simply saying "We've been very fortunate," she tries to claim they haven't. They were "dead broke" when they left the white house. They're not "truly well off." They did it "through dint of hard work."

I'd almost respect her if she told the truth: It probably WAS very hard work doing decades of damage control and fighting off endless "bimbo eruptions" to keep the gravy train running until Bill was in the Oval Office; and it's not a job that any sane person would relish doing.

jimmyk

how could they have a 6 month destroy the tape record policy.

They could if they were printing out and archiving (in paper files) those e-mails they considered "records." Does anyone think they were actually doing that? And that none of the missing e-mails qualified as such?

Extraneus

I took it to mean that they declared that emails are not "official records," since "official records" are printed out. Therefore, only the printed copies need to be in permanent storage. And, like Jimmy said, the only emails that were "official records" are the ones for which they have printed copies.

"Did Lois Lerner store any printed 'official records'?"

"Yes."

"Why weren't any of these turned over to the Committee?"

"Because none were responsive to the subpoena's search criteria."

Threadkiller

If I understand the missing emails story correctly they are saying all external emails for a certain time period are gone. Both official records and non-official records have disappeared.

Are we to believe that she did only non-official work for a 2 year period?

I guess I can believe it.

jimmyk

"Because none were responsive to the subpoena's search criteria."

I thought they asked for all of her emails/records.

Last week, Koskinen testified that it was "my decision" to withhold this information from Congress in February when IRS discovered that Lerner's emails from 2009-2011 were missing due to crash. he says that at 1:30 here.

He says he didn't want to tell Congress something that would cause Congress to "leap to conclusions" about the missing emails.

Now, per his recent testimony, he says he knew that the emails were lost (or possibly lost) due to a crash. He further says it was his decision to not tell Congress about this.

But compare this to his testimony to Congress on March 26. Representative Trey Gowdy asked him specifically about emails from 2010 and why they couldn't be retrieved more quickly:

Note that the reason Koskinen offers for the impossibility of delivering this information by the end of the week was that he had to screen the emails for "6103 material." (I guess that's possibly confidential material that would have to be redacted.)

However, at this point, Koskinen knows that the main reason the emails can't be delivered is that her computer "crashed" and that the emails can't be recovered.

Stephanie

Why do progs like to dance on the head of a pin? If the email is related to a particular taxpayer OR if the email is related to a particular group of taxpayers and relates to how tax law applies or will be changing, ISTM that those are permanent records of the history of either the correspondence with/about a taxpayer or the history of the proposed changes to tax application. In both cases the paper trail would be considered pertinent to establishing grounds for legal purposes.

Stephanie

Remember these people (prog govt workers, true believers, exec branch, congress critters) were so convinced that we would be showering them with flowers and thanking them for their stewardship of healthcare, the environment, etc, that they were giddy with power.

That they didn't think things through or couldn't see that their giddiness might lead to them getting caught with their pants down via emails and the like didn't occur to them. We should have been singing their praises from the rafters and all that behind the scenes stuff was 'above our heads.'

Now bow down to their awesomeness and be thankful that they are doing good things...

The lies. They never stop:

When discussing the struggles that working parents experience as they balance their careers and family time, Biden told the audience, “I can speak a little bit from my own experience.”

Though he noted that he is wearing a “mildly expensive suit” and has a good pension and salary, the vice president said, “I don’t own a single stock or bond . . . I have no savings account.”

But it this, in fact, true, I have even less respect for the buffoon. Wait. You can't have less than none.

So if emails, except for those that clearly contain "documents" at a regulatory agency can be shredded at will, why did the EPA set up all those dummy accounts for their Princes?

If that is all true, why all the fuss over the years about the emails and texts of all those Republican?

Why does my own lawyer make such a big deal about preserving our emails in the private sector?

I am so confused...

Somebody needs to create a photo of Koskinen like the one of Lerner above. They would make nice bookends. Maybe include Obama giving the finger too. Sadly that does not require computer tweaking I know.

USGA's info on the quake: M8.0 - 24km SE of Little Sitkin Island, Alaska
