Emails shed new light on White House political hanky panky

Well everybody in the blogiverse is writing about the document dump and I'm really busy at work today so just a quick note from me.

The White House unceremoniously threw 3000 emails on the table for public review. It reminds me of some high profile criminal cases I worked on back in the my law firm days. It wasn't uncommon for government to comply with mandatory discovery by delivering banker boxes full of disorderly papers that appeared to have been thrown up in the air and then just shoved into the boxes. It would take days and sometimes weeks to reorganize the evidence into some comprehensible chronological order, only to discover the time gaps where crucial items were missing.

Fortunately, there are a lot more eyeballs available to scrutinize this doc dump and the WaPo already uncovered a loyalty list that ranked USAs according to their usefulness to the Bush regime. Interestingly Patrick Fitzgerald was added to that list while he was in the midst of the Plame investigation. And of course by now you've heard that USA Carol Lam is rumored to have been on the verge of issuing subpoenas in the greater Cunningham investigation that may well have implicated the White House all the way to Cheney, shortly before she was fired.

Meanwhile, if you have time to lend a hand, TPM Muckracker is calling for volunteers to comb through the email dump for relevant information further documenting the subversion of our Justice system for political purposes. And for much more reaction across Blogtopia and the media, see Memeorandum.
