Has anything been resolved yet on that? No? ...maybe it's time folks started thinking back, and pushing for a bit more housecleaning so that we can address the problems facing our nation without past impediments cropping up to slow our progress. 

WH Dissembly and Prevarication Over Missing Emails: Who's on First?

promoted -- cho

BarbinMD over on DailyKos recently posted a front-page piece titled Waxman To Hold Hearing On Missing White House E-Mails; she included an excerpt of an exchange that occurred between WH Spokeperson Tony Fratto and the White House Press Corp that reminds me of an Abbot and Costello "Who's on First?" routine. BarbinMD had cut out part of Tony's long response, so I'm pulling the whole quote here:

MR. FRATTO: I think our review of this, and you saw the court filing on this, and our declaration in response to the judge's questions -- I think to the best of what all the analysis we've been able to do, we have absolutely no reason to believe that any emails are missing; there's no evidence of that. There's no -- we tried to reconstruct some of the work that went into a chart that was entered into court records and could not replicate that or could not authenticate the correctness of the data in that chart. And from everything that we can tell, our analysis of our backup systems, we have no reason to believe that any email at all are missing.


Q So where are they?

MR. FRATTO: Where are what?

"Where are what?"

No, What's on second. Who's on First...

Waxman, however, wasn't amused by this and has scheduled hearings. To echo Barb's sentiments -- let's hope subpoenas are issued and acted upon, instead of nothing more than sternly worded letters this time.
