gwb43.com Today: ThinkProgress Buries a Lede
Justice Department documents released tonight include new emails linking Karl Rove’s top aides — former White House political director Sara Taylor, who resigned last month, and her deputy Scott Jennings — to the U.S. attorney scandal. Subpoenas have been authorized, but not approved, for both Taylor and Jennings.
Significant, sure. Illegal as shit, well, duh! This goes without saying for this crew. But way down the story this sorta leaps out:
The messages from Taylor and Jennings to the Justice officials are sent from their Republican National Committee email accounts.
Now can we get those subpoenas to Chattanooga Rep. Waxman? There is no longer any way anybody can claim that "those RNChq.com and gwb43.com and other Smartech emails were just used for political matters." These mails were entirely about government business, to wit the US Attorney positions. They should have gone through the legal, mandatory, US Archivist-recorded .gov email system. They did not. Case fucking closed already, dammit.
Rove can call it a fishing expedition all he wants. At one point it might have been possible to negotiate using seine nets and bottom trawlers. Rove figured he was gonna get away with it yet again so he went all-in. It's time to go fishing with dynamite.
