Former Obamacare Boss Admits She Deleted Emails Sought By Congress

Tyler Durden's picture


On the bright side, Marilyn Tavenner - appointed by President Obama to take over CMS within the Department of Health and human Services in 2013 - did not suffer a hard-drive crash. However, as MSNBC reports, she may be unable to cooperate with House Oversight and Government Reform Committee subpoenas because she deleted emails.


As MSNBC reports,

A team of HHS officials is now working to reconstruct Tavenner’s inbox by collecting emails from people she typically corresponded with and through other methods. They expect to recover “most, but not all” of Tavenner’s emails, the letter adds.


“While we have not identified any specific emails that we will be unable to retrieve, it is possible that some emails may not be available to HHS, and we are therefore filing this memorandum,” Kathleen Cantwell, a records management official at the agency wrote.

The excuse:

According to the letter and two senior HHS officials with knowledge of the matter, Tavenner receives an unusually large number of emails –  some 10,000-12,000 per month – since her address is public and advocacy groups occasionally urge their members to contact her. In order to stay below the agency’s Microsoft Outlook email size limit, Tavenner would regularly delete emails after copying or forwarding them to her staff for retention.


While it’s impossible to know how many messages might be missing, HHS staffers studied her email habits for a month and estimated that at least 90 percent of her traffic was within the agency, the officials said.

But this is still the most transparent administration ever...

Anyone who has worked in even the smallest IT shop knows that there are copies of that e-mail in the backup files of the e-mail servers.

This kind of news is more about drama than it is about facts.

Correction, you worked in IT (outside the federal gov't) for a long time. Most of the Fed system only do DR backups. The backup tapes are recycled after 30 to 45 days. All they need to do is stone wall for a couple of months and Poof! its all gone!

The law is for the little peeples. See what happens with the rebellous teen who goes for a joy ride, for example. He's phucked over good, maybe getting 5 years in jail for grand larceny.


The law needs to be applied equally. If you destroy evidence it should automatcially a presumption of your guilt with the burden on the destroyer to prove their innocence with some sort of other evidence.

All I know is that I once pressed the "wrong" button on my computer and it re-downloaded every single email I had ever received, including the ones I had deleted.  Most annoying at the time.  Shame I can't remember what that "button" was.  It might have had something to do with getting a new computer, I really can't remember.  But those emails are still there, somewhere.

You know they are using exchange.  And you know that exchange is backed by some name brand storage.  NetApp, HP/P9/3Par, EMC.  Multiple redundant servers and backend storage means that if those emails are gone they were deleted.  Yes there are backups and if there isn't then someone should be going to jail.  End of story.  You should see the hoops the feds make us jump through for email.  Are they not jumping the same hoops?

Is it true???? .... If you manage to really " eliminate" electronic data, that you have done something pretty unique?

Seems to me certain elements have tried, and .gov seems really good at always recovering data. But we are supposed to believe these "folks" have special systems, and wipe data from existence routinely.

The mails aren't gone, they where just to retarted to look for deleted mails.

It's actually pretty damn hard to delete anything in outlook...

And than there's the system backups that are stored in secure locations every day, week, month....

If they want them, they'll have them.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but deletion doesn't actually delete anything from memory. It only delete the association of that value with the specific memory location. Therefore, the emails are still there unless that memory location has been allocated to a new value. I haven't taken many computer science classes, but I am assuming this is fairly basic. NSA hears everything but can't recover emails? Fuck you Barack Osama.

I think you're thinking of disk space not memory.

Unfortunately, I think outlook stores emails in the same file, so assuming new emails were downloaded since, they're pretty safely gone.

Doesn't make the situation any less ridiculous though.

If it's Exchange, then being in a database is exactly why it doesn't work like a regular file deletion on the file system.  When you delete emails, it creates a "hole" in the server database file.  Rather then growing the file, Exchange will plug the holes with new information.  You CAN set an "undelete" period where it doesn't actually get removed from the database, but that defaults to 14 days.  Some systems store flat files, such as Qmail, where the files would be unlinked but still there.  I doubt they are running a MS Exchange alternative though.

Still, all this is just stupid, since there is a backup tape out there somewhere.  Someone is telling Congress to STFU since there are no consequences for this behavior, such as defunding the agency or putting people in jail.  If there were real personal consequences, you bet your ass they'd find the info.

Nop, the mails are still there. It's not like recovering a file that was delted on a sd disk or something.

In outlook, you need to delete the file 3 times before it's really gone.

If you find the second, you know a shitlot about outlook.
If you find thr third, you have a very very good it knowledge. And she doesn't look like one.

The best way to recover them now is this:
1. Call the IT guys
2. Tell them they're going to jail for 20 years
3. Unless they can recover them in the next 5 minutes

Let's see how long it would take...

Option 2 is to call India

25 Years of IT/Exchange Architecture and Support/Info Sec/IT Forensics experience....

Outlook stores in a local file, only if cached mode is enabled. The emails are either in the remnants of that file, on the Exchange server disks, in some Exchange archive service, or on backup tapes.

Spaces on disk are only marked for deletion. The underlying data is only over written, when the sectors on the disk are needed to store new bit of information.

If CONgress had any honor or intestical fortitude, and if their Sergeant-at-Arms wasn't a ball-less eunuch, every one of these administration hack-apologists from Hank Paulson to this dumb bitch would be wearing striped suits and rotting in the CONgressional dungeon in chains.

There is "opposition" only to this extent.  The "opposition" catches something and then works out a deal under the table.  Things like truth and justice are to be avoided like the plague.  Truth and justice are for the little people.  Both sides understand this implicitly and completely.

You lot know and understand the 'Hippocratic Oath'?  Do no harm?

Thats under 'Common Law', now ask yourself a question, how 'Old' is 'Common Law'?  Ask yourself if this has ever been superceded, or wrote out of what is 'Law'?  As you know it, or as 'They' know it.

Just asking questions here folks, as you do.

Do no harm my ZH friends.  Some of us I believe abide by this, and some dont, do they?

I do it for a reason Grande Tetons,

At some point, these cunts will answer to cunts like me, and mark my words, these cunts 'Will' answer for deeds done, and deeds un-done.

Cunts, just like me mate, will make sure of it.

You 'Will' be held to account cunts.

History, this time, demands it.

You be reading a mother fucking cuntish writer of it.

And this idiot, Inthemix96 isnt the one you want, we are legion.

I have a creative judicial sentence for Tavenner. To keep things transparent she could be given a choice of a 10 year sentence for obstruction of justice or 5 months of going to work nude except for fluffy bunny slippers for her feet. Humiliation example deterrance.

Oh this is getting good.  I have worked on Outlook Exchange before and in any IT operation, this is the "armpit" job that everyone hates!  The reason being the data bases are so massive and you have critical backups and then you have to configure the "Active Directory" for permission levels and access as well as group policy.  In in a large organization, there is more than one person that works on Outlook Exchange.  It's not always clean either.

So the next question here is how good are the back ups and querying all the data relative will take some time, but if you have a good "Exchange" crew they'll do it.  You can't get around the time element here though. 

This cracked me up reading this too, as with the hard drive reference, unless she created PST files to back up herself on some of the data, then everything is all on the server.  It just depends on how it was configured as there's many options on some of it and too again the permission levels come into play here as well as some possible server set filters as well. 

I'm sure she had a big quota for her email compared to others and yes, you do have to delete emails to stay under quota, but again, we're back to the techs doing the work there with pulling backups of what was deleted, so no getting around that, but deleting emails was not a crime as that's how it works, but saying your hard drive died is a tall tale to try to use as a cover up as we're not that dumb out here:)  There are tons of Outlook Exchange techs that work in companies in the armpit that have war stories when you have to go back and dig in backups.  It is what it is.  I used to work at a hospital consulting several years ago and their IT guy was an idiot as their outlook exchange crashed on a regular basis as well.  Like I said, it's the armpit of the IT departments to work.

MKULTRA is a component of ACA. BTW, anyone can view the expired CIA operations online. Water boarding is the old Chinese torture method. Submursution rather than water drops. 

Look over there, someone is stealing a poppy plant. That faggot White House American Nigger better drop a Bomb in Iraq. 

The afghanistan terrorist planted new CIA roots. Just like Agenda 21, everyone is happy living in chaos. Bankers are shitting themselves in diapers. GDP soars on sitting behind a computer and relieving themselves. Water bills confuse board members future taxpayer assessment.

What the Obama administration knows is nobody can investigate any agency within the US government if the administration disallows it. Subpoenas are ignored, BS stories about the dog eating my homework, followed by more stonewalling, and political griping about phony scandals.  The only thing that could turn the tide is if the mainstream media was to take the administration to task as if it was reporting on a  Republican administration. Even then, Obama could stilll stonewall but he'd lose so much support one might think he became radioactive.
