Just to be clear, the "30,000 emails" that Donald Trump wants Russia to find for him - there aren't even assertions
of any concealed misdeeds on them. Contrast this to 22 MILLION (yes, million) Bush emails that went "missing" when Congress sought information about the firing of 6 federal prosecutors who were sniffing at Bush-Cheney corruption.
In 2014, e-sleuths managed to recover a bunch of them, though getting them sorted could take more years. But the issue is both the amnesia and weird sense of scale displayed by our republican friends. Four volunteers who took an ill-advised risk in Benghazi... versus thousands who died on 9/11 because Bush re-assigned agents away from terror duties. Which got endless, endless hearings?
Millions of deliberately deleted emails pertinent to blatant abuse of power in evading a corruption probe vs a few thousand personal emails that no one even suggests were pertinent to any malfeasance? (See below). Which got hearings?
Cheney companies making BILLIONS off the Iraq wars and more billions sent by Cheney into Iraq, raw cash on pallets, that promptly disappeared, vs a few hundred thousands in speaking fees with no known quid pro quo and those banks due to get broken up by HC? Which has a lynch mob?
I could go on and on. But you see, those would be FACTS. And now you see why Fox and its wholly owned party have declared war on science.
DETAILS: "The e-mail controversy dates back to the Bush administration's 2006 firing of the top federal prosecutors in nine cities. After congressional committees demanded the administration produce documents related to the firings, the White House said millions of e-mails might have been lost from its servers. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and the National Security Archive sued over the issue in 2007, arguing the Bush administration violated federal laws that require presidential records to be preserved."http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/12/14/white.house.emails/
