In the Nick of Time » It only took $10 million, but a Justice Department official says that the Bush administration will meet its legal requirement to transfer to the National Archives 14 million e-mails reported missing four years ago from White House computer files. The plaintiff's lawyer in the lawsuit responds with: "I'll believe it when I see it." — Washington Post

Charges Filed Against 'Missing' Pilot » Marcus Schrenker, the Indiana businessman who allegedly faked his own death amid a crush of financial and legal problems, favored Armani suits, drove a silver Lexus and flew his own Piper aircraft. Now, the "daredevil" pilot faces federal charges after leading U.S. marshals on a multi-state scramble. — New York Times, Washington Post

The FBI's Prying Eyes on Blago » According to the Chicago Sun-Times, federal authorities trained a video camera on Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich in the final weeks of 2008 before his arrest. Fast forward to today, and another surreal scene unfolds: Blagojevich this morning presided over the Illinois Senate's swearing-in ceremonies shortly before the same lawmakers were seated as jurors in his impeachment trial. — Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune

And What of Rep. Rangel? » The ethics probe that dogged Charles B. Rangel late last year still hangs over the New York Democrat's head, but it hasn't limited his ability to negotiate a sweeping package of tax cuts being pushed by President-elect Barack Obama. — Politico

Swindlers Feast on Foreclosures » As home values across the country continue to plummet, the authorities say a new breed of swindler is preying on the tens of thousands of homeowners desperate to avoid foreclosure. — New York Times

Speaking of Swindlers » Thousands of investors who sought a piece of the action when oil and gas prices were soaring are looking to federal and state regulators to address complaints that they were lured into fraudulent investment schemes. The Securities and Exchange Commission says complaints from energy investors more than doubled between 2004 and 2007. — WSJ
