I warned people off this spin today, reminding them of the fact that investigatorswere not permitted to make copies of the emails. They were only permitted toview them. They weren’t even allowed to take notes as they were looking at the emails; all notes were made afterwards, after they’d left the room where they were permitted to merely view the emails.
