The failure of the rule of law is contagious

First, IRS employee Lois Lerner targeted the political opposition from Washington DC. Then she destroyed her hard drive to hide the evidence of her misbehavior, with similar mysterious equipment failures affecting almost 20 of her friends and colleagues, and pled the 5th before Congress. Rather than expose the wrongdoing, IRS Comissioner Koskinen lied to Congress and destroyed the server backup tapes. When Koskinen faced no consequences for his deception, the CIA destroyed the only copy of the classified report on the torture techniques it used. Now, the NYPD has "lost" records of its unconstitutional domestic surveillance in defiance of a court order.

This sort of thing is going to happen more and more often until it becomes obvious that there will be serious consequences rather than a successful coverup.
