Attorney Purge Documents Missing (Documents From November to December)

@ 11:14 PM (90 months, 16 days ago)

According to the website Politico.com, there is a gap (from mid-November to early December) of emails and other memos in the attorney purge investigation. 

From Politico.com:

In DOJ documents that were publicly posted by the House Judiciary Committee, there is a gap from mid-November to early December in e-mails and other memos, which was a critical period as the White House and Justice Department reviewed, then approved, which U.S. attorneys would be fired while also developing a political and communications strategy for countering any fallout from the firings.

Hmmm..hearing about this gap in the emails and other documents, reminds me of Alberto Gonzales' 12-hour gap in the Valerie Plame case.   I discussed it here on the blog before.  Before Alberto Gonzales became Attorney General and he was still the White House Counsel, he had received word from the Justice Department that it had launched an investigation into the outing of Valerie Plame.  Gonzales waited 12 HOURS before telling White House staff that they had to preserve all of their documents in the Valerie Plame matter.
