Missing Emails Update

MISSING EMAILS UPDATE….Remember all those missing emails the White House told us about yesterday? Turns out the RNC does have copies on its servers. Whew. Apparently, back in 2004, as part of the Valerie Plame investigation, Patrick Fitzgerald told them to stop deleting emails.

So they did. Except, it turns out, for Karl Rove’s emails, many of which are still missing. Now that’s just plain peculiar, isn’t it?

Luckily, I’m sure the RNC has backup tapes. Right? Everyone keeps backup tapes, don’t they?
