IBM, Darrell Issa, and Millions of “Lost” White House Emails

IBM, Darrell Issa, and Millions of “Lost” White
House Emails
By Jason Leopold of The Public Record published in the Nation/World

At a Congressional committee hearing in February, Theresa Payton,
the chief information officer at the White House Office of
Administration, testified that White House emails sent and received
between 2003 and 2005 fell into a virtual black hole when the Bush
administration transitioned from Lotus Notes to the Microsoft Outlook
email exchange—a system that apparently was incapable of copying
and archiving emails from Lotus.

For Congressman Darrell Issa, (R-Calif.), who sits on the House
Oversight and Government Reform Committee and accused the
committee’s Democratic leadership of trying to embarrass President
Bush, Payton’s succinct testimony solved the mystery surrounding the
disappearance of perhaps millions of emails, many of which are said
to coincide with high-profile political scandals, such as the leak of
covert CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson, and a Supreme Court
ruling involving Vice President Dick Cheney’s energy task force
documents.
