Oh, the nutroots aren’t going to like this. At all. A Clinton-appointed judge has ruled that some much-ballyhooed White House administrative e-mails are not subject to FOIA disclosure. Via CNN:

The White House Office of Administration is not required to turn over records about a trove of possibly missing e-mails, a federal judge ruled Monday.

The White House Office of Administration is not bound by the Freedom of Information Act, a judge says.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly found the agency does not have “substantial independent authority” so it is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act.

The decision means the White House does not have to disclose documents relating to its troubled e-mail system. That system developed problems that may have caused millions of White House e-mails to be unaccounted for.

The watchdog organization Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington had sued under FOIA. The group expressed disappointment in the ruling and said it is appealing the decision.

Kollar-Kotelly has not exactly been receptive to the White House. That won’t stop the tinfoil from rattling, though. Little does.
