Not long after George W. Bush assumed the presidency in 2001, Rove, his top political aide, set up a private email server for use in the White House. The stated purpose of the system — the primary domain name on which was gwb43.com — was that it would be used exclusively for the sort of political correspondence that Bush and Rove were not permitted to do on the taxpayer’s dime.

Seven years later, Bush and Rove were embroiled in two competing scandals — the Valerie Plame scandal, in which operatives for Vice Pres. Dick Cheney, including Rove and Scooter Libby, were accused of unmasking Valerie Plame, a CIA specialist in the black market for weapons of mass destruction, for purely partisan reasons, and the U.S. Attorney purge, in which Rove’s political operation in the White House was accused of ordering Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to purge eight U.S. attorneys who were qualified prosecutors and replace them with political hacks with little or no prosecutorial experience.

Rove escaped prosecution in the Libby case, but Libby was convicted (Bush quickly commuted the sentence) on March 6, 2007, at the same time Bush and Rove were under fire for purging the U.S. attorneys. During the investigation, it came to light that Rove’s server had been used to send official, non-political emails — correspondence that was required by law to be preserved under the Presidential Records Act.

On April 12, 2007, Rove’s operation admitted that it had deleted at least 5 million emails from the server. In December 2009, technicians who had examined the server reported that the number of emails that had been deleted was far greater — 22 million.

What was in the emails? No one will ever know.

Good thing the Russians, Saudis, Iranians, Chinese, and whatever other foreign entities have already purchased their clearance from Ma Barker, and her part time Beau........

American "Secrets" should only be secret to Americans, no?

That's how New Amerika works.

I'm guessing their copies of her emails aren't redacted.

LOL....maybe when they hand them over to the US Congress!

(Wouldn't want American leaders to know what Foreign leaders do.....about American secrets!)

Hell, we really should have elected Putin to the White House, as that would seem to save everyone a lot of time and trouble!

(Might have cut in to the Clinton profit machine, though....to say nothing of her ambition for Queenhood.)
