FLASHBACK: “All Of Our Work Is Conducted On Work Email Accounts”….
SHOT: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney In June 2011: “All Of Our Work Is Conducted On Work Email Accounts.” “Well, the U.S. government policy — certainly, the administration policy that is effective here is that we — all of our work is conducted on work email accounts; that’s part of the Presidential Records Act. So the issue in terms of, as I mentioned, our work accounts, we have no evidence to suggest that any of those accounts were accessed or compromised.” (Jay Carney, White House Press Briefing, Washington, D.C., 6/2/11)
CHASER: As Obama’s Deputy Chief Of Staff, Jim Messina Used His Personal Email Address Instead Of His White House Address To Conduct Government Business. “The interactions between the Finance Committee and PhRMA were detailed in an earlier report from the Energy and Commerce Committee, but Messina’s use of his private email address – at issue because he was conducting government business on a non-government, undisclosed account – is a new revelation.” (Jennifer Epstein, “GOP: W.H., Messina ‘Failed’ On Transparency,” Politico, 7/31/12)
- “The Committee Report Says The White House ‘Has Refused To Verify’ Whether Emails From White House Staffers’ Personal Accounts Were Preserved.” (Jennifer Epstein, “GOP: W.H., Messina ‘Failed’ On Transparency,” Politico, 7/31/12)
