Ds must demand all emails to or from #Kavanaugh that were kept on Smartech's server! When Congress investigated the Bush WH's firing of 8 US attorneys, it learned the Bush admin. had used Smartech for its emails & deleted 22 MILLION of them. They were retrieved in 09. 1/
Here is a Snopes article re: the deleted and then retrieved 22 MILLION emails from the Bush administration. These deleted emails were not retrieved until 2009 and have never seen the light of day. 2/ snopes.com/fact-check/g-w…
3/ Per Craig Unger (editor Vanity Fair, author "Boss Rove"), the millions of missing emails were on RNC servers owned by Smartech: "Rove and more than EIGHTY OTHER WHITE HOUSE STAFFERS had their emails hosted on ... [the] SmarTech servers." harpers.org/blog/2012/09/_…
4/ More info on the Bush administration's use of RNC servers (that were owned by Smartech, per Craig Unger). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bush_Whit…
5/ Kavanaugh was associate White House counsel for the Bush administration from 2001-2003 and staff secretary for the Bush administration after that. articles.baltimoresun.com/2006-05-10/new…
6/ Kavanaugh was very tight with the Bush administration. He represented George W. Bush in the case that blocked the hand recount in Florida after the 2000 election. mypalmbeachpost.com/news/brett-kav…
7/ It was Kavanaugh who woke up George W. Bush in the middle of the night to have him sign legislation to keep the body of brain-dead Terri Schiavo alive against the wishes of her husband. mypalmbeachpost.com/news/brett-kav…
8/ As we learned from questioning by @senatorleahy, it seems that #Kavanaugh lied in 04 & 06 about his receipt of confidential documents stolen from Democratic Congressional staff members re: George W. Bush's judicial nominees. slate.com/news-and-polit…
9/ Rove, who apparently kept 95% of his own emails on the Smartech server, seems to have held Kavanaugh in very high regard. crivellawest.com/CWNetCollectio…
10/ Source re: Karl Rove's use of RNC hosted servers for 95% of his email. (As shown above, Craig Unger says those servers were owned by Smartech.) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bush_Whit…
11/ It makes sense that Kavanaugh, like Rove and the 80 or so Bush White House staffers, would have used Smartech for his emails.
12/ Meanwhile, the New York Times has confirmed that Russia DID hack the RNC. Per Comey, the hacked emails were supposedly just some "OLD STUFF" hosted by .... wait for it... SMARTECH!!!! nytimes.com/2017/01/10/us/…
13/ So Democrats really need to ask #Kavanaugh NOW whether he used Smartech for his emails and, if so, demand to see all of them on the basis that we cannot have a SCOTUS judge subject to potential blackmail by Russia.
14/ P.S. @LindseyGrahamSC apparently had "news clips" and "campaign releases" on the Smartech server that was hacked. Perhaps there was more. It would explain a lot...
15/ P.P.S. Smartech was also the company that received Ohio's election results in 2004 due to a computer "glitch." The backup server that sent them there was created by Rove's IT guru Mike Connell. mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-…
16/ Discussion of the 2004 presidential election & how Kerry was winning Ohio when the servers went down. When they went back up, Bush was ahead. conwaydailysun.com/news/code-red-…
17/ John Kerry finally acknowledged earlier this week that his campaign did in fact suspect vote tally manipulation during the 2004 presidential election in Ohio. wnyc.org/story/john-ker…
18/ Link to my transcription of @johnkerry's statement about the Ohio 2004 presidential election and how he and his campaign did suspect vote tally manipulaiton. drive.google.com/file/d/1EUrd5o…
19/ Questions from Democrats about Smartech are long overdue, and the #Kavanaugh hearings provide an opportunity to raise them. It is critical that they seize this opportunity bc we need to know if Russia might have kompromat on Kavanaugh. If so, this should defeat his nomination
20/ The entire line of inquiry would also serve the important and necessary function of shining a spot light on the very real potential that Russia may have kompromat on various Republicans in Congress via the confirmed hacking of some "old stuff" on Smartech's server.
21. By the way, in post 1, I should have said "any and all," not "all." I don't know for sure that Kavanaugh used Smartech for his emails. But there is a good possibility that he did. Likewise, there is a good possibility that he received emails from others who used Smartech.
22/ @craigunger seems to have written more about Smartech than anyone. Here are excerpts from his book, Boss Rove. books.google.com/books?id=ZogRg…
25/ Proposed script: It’s come to our attention that many members of the Bush WH used a #Smartech server 4 their emails. Given Comey’s confirmation that Russia hacked Smartech’s server, we must re-open the #Kavanaugh hearings to explore whether his emails may be in Putin’s hands.
As @soychicka shows, some of the scandal-ridden Bush administration emails received by #Kavanaugh came from #Smartech’s server. How many more that we haven’t seen? The Bush WH DELETED 22 MILLION that weren’t retrieved until 09. Russia hacked Smartech! 26/
