Emails of top Obama appointees remain a mystery
AP ^

WASHINGTON (AP) - Some of President Barack Obama's political appointees, including the Cabinet secretary for the Health and Human Services Department, are using secret government email accounts they say are necessary to prevent their inboxes from being overwhelmed with unwanted messages, according to a review by The Associated Press.

The scope of using the secret accounts across government remains a mystery: Most U.S. agencies have failed to turn over lists of political appointees' email addresses, which the AP sought under the Freedom of Information Act more than three months ago. The Labor Department initially asked the AP to pay more than $1 million for its email addresses.

The AP asked for the addresses following last year's disclosures that the former administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency had used separate email accounts at work. The practice is separate from officials who use personal, non-government email accounts for work, which generally is discouraged - but often happens anyway - due to laws requiring that most federal records be preserved.

I don't have a lot of confidence in them having been set up properly.

Guess I'm too old and too cynical.

There could be any number of copies. The sender, the receiver, the senders email server, the receivers email server, numerous servers in between, any one who is ccd or blind cc’d, any server rules set up to forward or copy the emails, etc.etc.

it brings a whole knew meaning to paper trail.

Looked at your bio and defer to your expertise.

Thank you for expanding my thinking.

Now for a group with the guts to drill down to the data you referenced...

Virtually all criminal organizations use secret communications. Why? They don't want to get caught doing illegal things.

Does not matter - he will give a speech on abortion or birth control and everything will be fine.

Or lead. Even if a hacker got those communique, who is going to report on it? The alphabet media would probably turn the hacker in at flag@whitehouse.gov of some other whitehouse snitch address.

Someone HAS to get these emails. I have zero doubt that they contain all the evidence that lead straight to the top.

And possibly higher.

I wonder if any zipped up top secret documents have been sent to our enemies from any of those accounts.

The regime is desperately trying to change the focus by putting all the sexual misconduct in the military stories out for bait.

The reason for the alternate emails besides defeating the FOIA is so that all of the emails from the “citizens” can go the published email accounts WHICH ARE BASICALLY A JUNK MAIL ACCOUNT. They do not want to hear from us.
