    Emanuel's campaign committee aide said Friday that the Illinois Democrat was informed in 2005, but never saw the correspondence and did not have enough information to raise concerns. The aide said Emanuel took "no action" because his knowledge was "cursory" and little more than "rumor."

    Now I'm no fan of Emanuel, and perhaps you can take him to task for the Meet the Press statement, but your link  to the CNN story is a bit misleading, based on the content of the article itself.

      If you read my entire diary, you see how I handled this paragraph.  The bottom line is that emmanuel knew and did nothing - or very little.  He used pages for politics.

        But you're wrong on this. The article, which you identify with the link, does not support the conclusion you say it does. Now you build on the article with some other sources, but those sources are largely circumstantial and supposition. They make sense when looked at the way you put them together, and your conclusion may be right, but that link you put up there is misleading as to the content of the article you actually linked to.

          in terms of respect, but I still disagree.  You are putting an awful lot of stock into a Emmanuel staffer - somebody that has a clear self-interest in putting the facts in the absolute best light.

          I'm sorry, but they don't get that benefit of the doubt - especially since the very next paragraph reads thusly:

          The aide's acknowledgement differs from the flat "no" Emanuel gave in October when asked -- during an interview on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" -- if he or anyone on his staff knew of the e-mails before the scandal broke.
