White House Email Conspiracy
We have a bona fide conspiracy of potentially far-reaching proportions happening in the White House right now, and because of sensationalist coverage
of more "juicy" news items, seems to be passing by largely unnoticed by the average person.
Two items that are strong evidence of a conspiracy to shelter communications related to the back-room business of the running the White House.
1) External Email Systems:
Several White House staffers, some of which report directly to the president, used unofficial email systems and
non-governmental computers to exchange official policy and planning emails. This appears to have gone on since the administration came into office.
2) Official White House Emails Were Deleted:
The private systems used by the White House staffers were designed to automatically delete old
emails every 30 days. This is in contradiction to federal law that requires all official communications by White House staff to be securely
The headlines related to this event are nothing short of breath-taking...
White House emails gone missing
Millions More Missing White House Emails
In the congressional investigation of the White House's role in the firing of several federal prosecutors last year, the Justice Department has
turned over reams of emails and memos to Congress.
But there may be many more missing emails, it turns out, because many people within the White House have been exchanging emails on a Republican
National Committee account using private laptop computers provided by the party for nearly two dozen employees of the president.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Leahy Doubts Bush Aides on Lost E-Mails
In a startling new revelation, CREW has also learned through two confidential sources that the Executive Office of the President (EOP) has lost
over five million emails generated between March 2003 and October 2005. The White House counsel’s office was advised of these problems in 2005 and
CREW has been told that the White House was given a plan of action to recover these emails, but to date nothing has been done to rectify this
significant loss of records.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

4 years of Rove e-mails are missing, GOP
President Bush's aides are lying about White House e-mails sent on a Republican account that might have been lost,
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy suggested Thursday, vowing to subpoena those documents if the administration fails to cough them
"They say they have not been preserved. I don't believe that!" Leahy shouted from the Senate floor.
"You can't erase e-mails, not today. They've gone through too many servers," said Leahy, D-Vt. "Those e-mails are there, they just don't
want to produce them. We'll subpoena them if necessary."Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Will Missing White House E-Mails Be Modern
Version of Nixons Tapes?
A lawyer for the Republican National Committee told congressional staff members Thursday that the RNC is missing at least four years' worth of
e-mail from White House senior adviser Karl Rove that is being sought as part of investigations into the Bush administration, according to the
chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
The disclosures came as White House counsel Fred Fielding rejected demands for a compromise on providing testimony and records to Congress related to
federal prosecutors' firings. In a letter to the heads of the House and Senate Judiciary committees, Fielding said the White House is standing firm
with its "unified offer," which would include providing a limited set of documents. The White House has proposed allowing Rove and other aides to be
interviewed privately, without a transcript and not under oath.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

But White House spokesman Scott Stanzel acknowledged that 22 White House aides have e-mail accounts sponsored by the
RNC and that e-mails they sent may have been lost.
Stanzel said the White House was trying to recover the e-mails and could not rule out that some may have involved the firings.The administration also
is drafting new guidelines for aides on how to comply with the law.
Leahy was not buying that.
''E-mails don't get lost,'' Leahy insisted. ''These are just e-mails they don't want to bring forward.''Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Beyond the very serious issues of using unofficial email servers for government business, and deleting those emails, is the often unspoken and
potentially much more serious issue, one of national security. Emails that likely contained sensitive information about the operation of the White
House, information about the office of the president, and a myriad of related operational and/or day-to-day business items have been available to
individuals outside the normal security clearance circles of government operations.
Clearly, there was an anticipation that these staffers would engage in exchanges that must not be discovered. The use of private computers and email
systems indicates a premeditated intent to facilitate a communications method that could "disappear" if needed.
Publicly held corporations face serious legal repercussions if they do not retain company email. What "corporation" is (supposed to be) more
publicly held than the U.S. Government?
