Bush spies on Americans' email ILLEGALLY - but ILLEGALLY won't reveal White House emails

As mentioned in an earlier post, a 22 year AT&T technician (who has submitted key evidence in a class-action lawsuit by the civil liberties group Electronic Frontier Foundation against AT&T) exposed the Bush Administration for illegally watching every email you send, every phone call you make and every website you search.

Now, it has come to light that Karl Rove's deputy at the White House, Scott Jennings, used an outside email domain,, for his emails. The domain, it turns out, is owned by the Republican National Committee. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington have sent a letter to House government reform committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-CA) requesting an investigation of whether the White House has been violating the Presidential Records Act -- in an attempt to keep certain correspondence away from prying eyes.

Now that Congress wants to investigate these email accounts, the White House now says it has 'lost' the emails. How stupid do they think we are?

Senator Patrick Leahy says the Bush Administration is LYING.
From CNN:

President Bush's aides are lying about White House e-mails sent on a Republican account that might have been lost, a powerful Senate chairman said Thursday, vowing to subpoena those documents if the administration fails to cough them up. "They say they have not been preserved. I don't believe that!" Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy shouted from the Senate floor. "You can't erase e-mails, not today. They've gone through too many servers," said Leahy, D-Vermont "Those e-mails are there, they just don't want to produce them. We'll subpoena them if necessary."

Another installment of the Bush Administration's abuse of power and criminal activity.
