Team BushCo doesn’t even try to make stuff up anymore. The latest maneuver in the White House scandal involving e-mailing on unofficial servers to discuss official matters (which is illegal as I noted last week)
The White House said that up to 5 million e-mails may have been “lost” when the WH switched from using Lotus Notes to Microsoft Outlook in 2002 and 2003.
So ridiculous, it’s almost funny. But not. In fact, Rove was so addicted to deleting his e-mail he had to be singled out by White House staffers and barred from deleting e-mail on his RNC-hosted server. Froomkin has the best coverage of the affair.
Rep. Henry Waxman, who has led the investigation into the mysteriously missing White House e-mails, will discuss this and other investigations of the Bush Administration on Sunday in Hollywood. (10:00 a.m., Plummer Park, Art Room 2, 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard Hollywood 90046)
