Which means, of course, that he is destroying them as we speak.

AP via HuffPo:

A federal judge on Saturday ordered Dick Cheney to preserve a wide range of the records from his time as vice president.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly is a setback for the Bush administration in its effort to promote a narrow definition of materials that must be safeguarded under by the Presidential Records Act.

The Bush administration's legal position "heightens the court's concern" that some records may not be preserved, said the judge.

If there's one thing Dick Cheney has learned in the past eight years, it's that there are no consequences for refusing to comply with lawful demands. Expect these records to go the way of those millions of "missing" emails.

UPDATE: Judge orders Cheney to share discovery with CREW
