“Landmark Legal Foundation Seeks Sanctions on EPA for Destroying Emails, Text Messages”
Via Mark Levin, Landmark Legal’s press release, which includes this great bit:
The EPA is atoxic waste dump for lawlessness and disdain for the Constitution,” said Landmark President Mark Levin. “When any federal agency receives a FOIA request, the statute says it must preserve every significant repository of records, both paper and electronic, that may contain materials that could be responsive to that request. When an agency gets sued it must also notify everyone who might be involved in the suit to preserve everything in their possession that could be discoverable in the litigation. But the people at the EPA, from the Administrator on down, think they’re above the law, that no one has the right to question what or how they do their jobs. Well, they’re wrong. The laws apply to everyone, even federal bureaucrats.”
Magical thinking aside, it sure is fun — not to mention nostalgic — to recall an America wherein the rule of law wasn’t something that was arbitrarily applied, or used as a political and partisan weapon to help “nudge” us toward the Utopian Dreams of our New Progressive Fathers.
