“white house copied over e-mail tapes”:

The White House acknowledges recycling backup computer tapes of e-mail, a practice that may have wiped out many electronic messages from the early years of the Bush administration, including some pertaining to the CIA leak case.

If e-mails were not saved on computer servers and copies were overwritten on backup tapes, the White House might have violated two laws requiring preservation of documents that fall into the categories of federal records or presidential records.

Among the e-mails that could be lost are messages swapped by any White House officials involved in discussions about leaking Plame’s identity.

“It appears that the White House has now destroyed the evidence of its misconduct,” Weismann said.
