White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card's Oct. 7, 2003 Memo to all
White House Employees About Deadline to Provide Documents to Counsel
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF
On October 3, 2003, every employee in the Executive Office of the President
received instructions from Counsel's office about obligations to search
for and provide documents that may be related to the Justice Department's
investigation. Employees are to deliver all such documents -- or a
certification that they have no documents -- to Room 214 in the EEOB
by no later than 5 pm today. Copies of the October 3 instructions
from the Counsel's Office and the accompanying certification form are
attached. The President has made clear how important it is to him
that everyone should comply with this request. The sooner we complete
the search and delivery of documents, the sooner the Justice
Department can complete its inquiry -- and the sooner we can all
return our full attention to doing the work of the people that
the President has entrusted to us.
I expect each and every employee to do what it takes as a professional
to comply by the deadline, and I expect the senior staff at the
White House to make sure those under your supervision are
thorough, diligent, and timely in this effort.
Counsel's office is available to answer any questions you might
have, and will be staffing Room 214 until 5 pm tonight to receive
The level of cooperation has been outstanding. Thank you - especially
to those who have already complied with the above mentioned request.
Andrew H. Card
White House Chief of Staff
