EPA’s release of documents related to email aliases criticized as ‘deeply troubling’

The Environmental Protection Agency released roughly 4,000 pages of documents Monday in response to a request for information about possible secret emails by former Administrator Lisa Jackson, but the agency provided only a portion of the information promised by a court-approved date, according to a Washington attorney.

The attorney, Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said the EPA provided about 2,000 of the roughly 3,000 emails promised, and they were not in chronological order.

“This response is deeply troubling and seems to have gravely compounded the unlawful activity we have exposed, involving a false identity assumed for federal recordkeeping purposes,” Horner said in a prepared statement. “The EPA’s defective compilation (also) boasts an impressively anemic content-volume ratio.”
