Ms. Burleigh, I read with interest your articles on the Trump Administration use of private email servers and phones, but also your article on the GW Bush e-mail scandal. In that article, it has a video of you talking about the Bush e-mail scandal where 22 million e-mails were lost. Can you send me a link or copy of that video attached to that article? The 2+ minute video is attached to but I could not download it. I check on and says it is there, but nothing comes up. Nice articles again. Thank you.
