Current White House agrees to restore missing Bush Administration emails

"We may never know exactly what happened to all the missing emails, and which Bush administration officials were involved in the coverup, but we do know the American public never got the full story,” CREW Executive Director Melanie Sloan said.

“The Obama administration, which inherited the lawsuits and the dysfunctional White House email system, has done a terrific job straightening out the mess," Sloan added. "Thanks to the Obama White House, a critical part of our nation’s missing history will be restored."

Not all emails that went missing during the Bush administration will be restored, due to budgetary constraints, but the Executive Office of the President will provide CREW with updates and reports on why the emails went missing in the first place.
