And when I say troll, I’m referring to Representative Darrell Issa, of course.
The powerful chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, today escalated a showdown with the White House over use of personal email accounts to conduct official government business.
In a letter to White House chief of staff Jack Lew, Issa requested the names of all administration staffers who have engaged in the practice, their email addresses and copies of work-related messages sent outside of government email servers.
According to Darrell Issa, the American people “have a right to know that White House staff and federal officials are conducting the business of the government transparently and in accordance with record-keeping statutes.”
You know, just like they had a right to know
nothing during the 8 years of the Bush Administration.
White House staff who used personal email accounts for official business forwarded their emails to their White House accounts to comply with transparency rules.
Like Fast and Furious and Solyndra, there’s nothing here.
