Republican U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) is keeping the pressure on President Obama and his staff for their “fishy” email collection scheme.
The White House has now retreated and claim that this data collection program has been dismantled, after outrage from countless Americans, including Sen. Cornyn, who, earlier this month, sent a letter to President Obama, criticizing this effort.
Sen. Cornyn has now sent another letter to the White House, asking that all information collected be purged.
Sen. Cornyn also asked for answers as to whether the emails under the government scheme were shared with the Democratic National Committee and other third party groups. This question is due to allegations that such sharing may have occurred.
