Obama Continues Bush Email Position

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. The Obama administration is now maintaining the Bush position on that missing email case in federal court, seeking to prevent a ruling that would require the government to preserve the backup tapes for millions of emails sent from within the White House.

The Obama administration, siding with former President George W. Bush, is trying to kill a lawsuit that seeks to recover what could be millions of missing White House e-mails.

Two advocacy groups suing the Executive Office of the President say that large amounts of White House e-mail documenting Bush’s eight years in office may still be missing, and that the government must undertake an extensive recovery effort. They expressed disappointment that Obama’s Justice Department is continuing the Bush administration’s bid to get the lawsuits dismissed.

Same story, slightly different subject.
