White house email and the Presidential Records Act

Where have all the e-mails gone?

Waxman's staff report notes that the Presidential Records Act requires the president to ensure that all "activities, deliberations, decisions, and policies that reflect the performance of his constitutional, statutory, or other official or ceremonial duties are adequately documented ... and maintained as presidential records" and charges that White House officials used their RNC e-mail accounts "in a manner that circumvented these requirements."

Using email accounts on the Republican National Committee server to conduct official government business could be judged as a evasion of the Presidential Records Act.
