Waxman Requests RNC Emails
April 4, 2007
The House’s chief sleuth, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-CA), continues to press the administration and the Republican National Committee.
Today, in a letter to the RNC’s chairman, he asked for emails “that relate to the use of federal agencies and federal resources for partisan political purposes.”
It’s just the latest move in Waxman’s investigation into the use of RNC email addresses by White House personnel, a practice that some charge violates the Presidential Records Act. Last week, Waxman asked the RNC not to destroy any such emails and asked White House counsel Fred Fielding what the administration’s email policies were.
