CREW: Bush admin. lost more than ten million e-mails
CREW's Anne Weismann told crn.com that the number of missing e-mails from the White House far surpasses the widely stated total of five million. It could be more than double or over ten million :
"I will tell you, by the way, that it's way higher than five million. It's more than 10 million," said Anne Weismann, a former Justice Department attorney who now serves as chief counsel for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington  (CREW).
Media reports have generally put the number of e-mails the Bush administration is reported to have lost from 2003-2006 at roughly five million. That was the number White House Press Secretary Dana Perino mentioned in an April press conference , when she admitted that millions of e-mails may have disappeared from the Executive Office of the President (EOP) archives.
But Weismann said sources close to Congressional and private investigations of the missing e-mail  scandal had informed her that more than twice as many e-mails were unaccounted for by the Bush administration.
