As the leak investigation into the unauthorized disclosures of classified information enters into its third week, White House staffers have been warned not to delete any emails or destroy other information that could be pertinent to investigators, according to officials familiar with the matter.
The warning email was sent internally in an office-wide message from administration lawyers last week, according to two U.S. officials, the latest indication that the two FBI investigations into the alleged disclosure of classified information is aimed, at least in part, at the White House.
The email included senior members of the White House staff as well, according to the officials.
A White House spokesperson declined to comment, directing BuzzFeed to President Obamas strong denial at a press conference in early June that the administration had authorized national security leaks.
The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national security information is offensive, Obama said at the time, adding that the writers of these articles have all stated unequivocally that they didn't come from this White House.
(Although its unclear what writers the president is referring to, the last statement appears to be at odds with what journalist David Sanger wrote in his own book, Confront and Conceal. Sanger attributes much of the information in his book to almost every senior member of the presidents national security team.)

TRANSLATION: "Better destroy any incriminating emails now, because we are on the verge of being forced to produce them to the Investigating Committee."
Just code for FLUSH EVERYTHING....flush it all now!
“Dear Valued Employee,
Please do not delete any emails.
Be sure to check you SENT EMAILS folders too, and dont delete any of those.
Then do not be sure to compact your email database file so that they cannot be recorvered.
And if you have any documents on your disk drive be sure those are not deleted and if they were, make sure you do not empty your recycle bin.
P.S. and then DO NOT download and run a program called “wipedisk” that overwrites the empty spaces on your hard disk so that files can be recovered”
OOOOOO! they’ve been “warned!” Stronger message to follow ( after the shredders and keyboards have cooled off sufficiently).
