Hunt the slipper, email edition

United States House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform

There are several next steps that should be pursued in the investigation into the use of RNC e-mail accounts by White House officials. First, the records of federal agencies should be examined to assess whether they may contain some of the White House e-mails that have been destroyed by the RNC. The Committee has already written to 25 federal agencies to inquire about the e-mail records they may have retained from White House officials who used RNC and Bush Cheney ’04 e-mail accounts. Preliminary responses from the agencies indicate that they may have preserved official communications that were destroyed by the RNC.

Imagine yourself the Chief Information Officer for a federal agency and you are presented with a inquiry from the Oversight and Government Reform Committee for any email you may have originating from the Republican National Committee. How would you know? Where would you look? This is a great content management story.
