White House Must Answer For Missing Emails

Emails on the Iraq War, CIA operative name leaks, and actions by the U.S. Justice Department were accidentally taped over; now one Judge demands answers...



Federal Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly looks to have another busy month. After slamming Microsoft at the end of January with two more years of oversight, another of her rulings is now drawing national attention.

The ruling pertained to the case of Washington-based Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics watchdog group's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for access to White House email. When access was not granted, the group sued the White House Office of Administration in May, demanding access under the FOIA.

Judge Kollar-Kotelly ruled this week that the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics could submit a plan for discovery to the court by February 21, 2008. If the plan was acceptable the case will proceed to a discovery phase where the group can question White House officials. The goal of the discovery process is determined whether the White House is subject to FOI request, or whether it has immunity from them as White House officials have insisted.   [DailyTech...]  [Comments...]
