    This is general stuff. If the communication was with the Pres. or Vice pres it is covered. If the com. is about what a president says it is covered. But clearly it is not intended to be used as a basis for a search in general. But it could be.

    It is not a violation of privacy. Confidentiality agreements and other waivers of rights to work for the fed. gov. is so standard. "Do it at work and work owns it". Communication from a work place is not private. No privacy expectations at all.
