The DOJ dropped off some of the Karl Rove "stash" of emails!!!

Whooo hoo!!

Oh, wait, not so much.

And the results (pdf)? Underwhelming. The Department searched the email accounts of sixteen Justice Department officials over the period of November 1, 2004 through May 2, 2007. All they found, according to the letter from Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard Hertling, was a single email sent on February 28, 2007 forwarding a copy of McClatchy's bombshell story on U.S. Attorney for New Mexico David Iglesias.

Attached is an already produced email from Rove's aide Scott Jennings warning that the story was on its way (Jennings notes that Sen. Pete Domenici's (R-NM) strategy is "not to respond [to requests for comment] and hopefully make this a one day story").

Hertling added in the letter that the Department is continuing to search for relevant documents.

I realize that it's actually become trite to say this, but if this was a Democratic President with a Republican led Congress, he'd be dragged from the White House in shackles while being pelted with tomatoes to the tune of "Send In The Clowns".

If Bush were a Democrat, he would have been executed for treason at least eight times by now.
