The Associated Press is reporting that the e-mail records of 51 out of 88 officials in the White House with e-mail accounts with the Republican National Committee are missing. This has a direct bearing on the Congressional investigation into improper or illegal influence by the political arm of the Bush Assministration on the justice system. The more they try to dodge, coverup and stonewall, the clearer it is that they have something to hide. "Executive privilege" is the last refuge of these scoundrels, as it was for their icon, Richard M. Nixon.
