Once again, the conspiracy theorists are right about this administration:
The White House said Wednesday it had mishandled Republican Party-sponsored e-mail accounts used by nearly two dozen presidential aides, resulting in the loss of an undetermined number of e-mails concerning official White House business.
Congressional investigators looking into the administration’s firing of eight federal prosecutors already had the nongovernmental e-mail accounts in their sights because some White House aides used them to help plan the U.S. attorneys’ ouster. Democrats were questioning whether the use of the GOP-provided e-mail accounts was proof that the firings were political.
Democrats also have been asking if White House officials are purposely conducting sensitive official presidential business via nongovernmental accounts to get around a law requiring preservation – and eventual disclosure – of presidential records. The announcement of the lost e-mails – a rare admission of error from the Bush White House at a delicate time for the administration’s relations with Democratically controlled Capitol Hill – gave new fodder for inquiry on this front.
The most corrupt administration in my lifetime. Hell, the most willfully and knowingly corrupt. Losing emails from non-official servers run by the Republican party is not a bug, it is a feature. This wasn’t a mistake- it was a plan. It is only more amusing that this administration has advanced the notion that all of us should be perfectly content to have our emails monitored.
*** Update ***
And the funniest thing about all this is what if it honestly was an accident? I doubt there is anyone out there who actually believes it was an honest mistake, but what if it was? because they chose to use non-official email accounts, even if they come back having found the e-mails, will anyone believe them?
Maybe Dan Riehl.
It is amazing the ways this administration finds to break laws and screw themselves.
