White House personnel appear to have been systematically avoiding using their government emails on the job because they knew they might some day be subpoenaed.That's a very good point. I know the Republicans believe their party and the current monarchical government we have are one and the same, but legally? Not so much.
But as we noted earlier with Karl Rove, this may have been too clever by half. If the president's aides were using RNC emails or emails from other Republican political committees, they can't have even the vaguest claim to shielding those communications behind executive privilege.
Speaking of Rove, check out his appearance in a piece on the 1972 Nixon campaign. Yikes.
