Good. How about getting hard drives from Congress and dig through all their files and emails?

I’m glad the lessons of Nixon’s office tapes have not been lost on the Bush Administration. This data would simply have been fodder for more wasted time by the lowest-rated Congress in modern history.

I call BS. Somewhere there are servers with the messages stored. Old emails never die, they just wait to bite you on the a$$.

the White House said in a sworn declaration

Boy, I wish I'd been there to hear that. I've heard buildings talk before, but it's been a long time since I took any drugs.

[...] in an effort to persuade a federal magistrate it would be fruitless to undertake an e-mail recovery plan that the court proposed.

Now, c'mon; I KNOW that the White House SURELY backed up the data that was stored on those hard drives, and that the missing e-mails are located somewhere within the reach of the White House, right? I mean, they wouldn't just off and destroy the final repository of the e-mails in question would they? It couldn't POSSIBLY be a fruitless search now could it?

I thought that everyone destroyed their old hard drives. Any time I’ve ever gotten a new PC, I’ve first taken and transferred some of my stuff to the new PC, left all the old junk, clutter, and old emails on the old drive. I then remove the drive from the chassis, take it outside and whop it a half dozen times with a 16 pound sledge. I don’t want some trash picker taking my old PC chasis out of the trash on trash day and browsing through my old bills, documents, and personal stuff. Even formatting the drive will not remove the files from a determined hacker. You have to physically destroy the drive.

I remember that just before W first took office he canceled his email accounts for this very reason. No ‘lectronic trail. Smart move.

The word “tossed” was carefully chosen by the thought shapers at AP to imply the White House night janitor just pitched them in the dumpster out back.

It shouldn’t matter whether there’s a pubbie or a Dim in the WH - if the law says they have to archive the files, then they have to archive the files.

If they intentionally fail to archive files the law says they have to archive, then there is corruption in the WH. Whether the President is a Republican or a Democrat.

FR was founded on the principle of exposing corruption in government. Judging from some of the replies on this thread, it seems FR has a measure of corruption as well.

Conyers has said he will vote to impeach after the Dems are elected in November. He doesn’t want to bring it up now, but if Obama or Clinton get in in November, they have till January to impeach Bush.

We do the same for many DOD hard drives. They don’t stand much of a chance against a 15 LB sledgehammer. Even less when you run over them with the track of an M1 or use them as targets for an .50 cal.

What’s really bad is when a server goes bad and they restore a backup that is several weeks or months old. You get emails that are old and have no idea what to do with them - its like “I know I’ve seen that before” and then you look at the original date.

While they are at it, maybe they can take “H” off the keyboards. Works for Hillary or Hussein.
