Just to fling this out and see if anyone can answer this for me. Within those thousands of pages of emails, it was shown that many involved were utilizing outside email addresses at the domain site owned by the RNC. Is email using outside web servers protected by Executive Privilege? If you utilize an external email address, can you claim Privilege once it leaves a secure server?
I genuinely would like an opinion on this issue, from someone who might actually know how this might work.
I understand that Yahoo and Hotmail were also used as external email servers. How can that information be privileged if it is held on a server that is not internally controlled and the information could be available to their IT people?
