White House Destroying Documents/Emails?
TPM: "CIA leak prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald collected 10000 pages of documents (including the most sensitive terrorism memos in the US govt) from Cheney's office, and now Scooter Libby, Cheney's disgraced former chief aide, is asking a court to force Fitzgerald to fork over all the documents to fight charges of perjury and lying to the FBI... but... Fitzgerald, who is fighting Libby's request, said in a letter to Libby's lawyers that many e-mails from Cheney's office at the time of the Plame leak in '03 have been deleted contrary to WH policy." Hmm... can we say Nixon's missing tapes, anyone? RawStory has Fitz's letter to Libby's lawyers and the PDF here.
