    Default Magistrate judge orders search of all Whie House computers


    You mean someone still cares about silly things like the rule of law, and actual consequences?

    Washington, D.C., January 15, 2009 - The federal magistrate judge overseeing the White House e-mail litigation today said the issue had reached "true emergency conditions" with only "two business days before the new President takes office" and that "the importance of preserving the e-mails cannot be exaggerated," according to the court's Memorandum Opinion issued this morning along with an Order and posted on the National Security Archive website, The National Security Archive .

    Magistrate Judge John Facciola formally ordered the White House to search all Executive Office of the President components' workstations and portable media for possibly missing e-mail -- enforcing yesterday's order from U.S. District Judge Henry Kennedy -- after government lawyers at a hearing yesterday represented that they would only search those EOP components that create federal agency records and leave out offices that create presidential records.

    Today's order also granted plaintiffs' requests that a full inventory of all backup tapes and portable media containing White House e-mail be delivered to the Archivist of the United States and filed with the court, and that the full administrative record and all other evidence related to the White House e-mail be preserved under the custody of the Archivist.

    "From the outset, the White House has fought tooth and nail against having to preserve sources of missing e-mail as well as other evidence relating to this case," said Sheila Shadmand of Jones Day, counsel for the Archive. "For the umpteenth time, this Court has commanded that they do so. We expect they will yet again object to the terms of these Orders, when instead they should be busy complying with it. The clock is running out."

    And people wonder why there is no respect for authority in this country. It started with Nixon, went on with Reagan and now look at this asshat. Repugs like to blame the problems of the country on liberalism and the hippies but quite frankly I blame it on the fact that the last four repug admins have had a blatant disregard for the law.

    and again, a toothless judicial system can't seem to rouse itself and send some FEDERAL MARSHALLS TO ENFORCE COMPLIANCE
