Judicial Watch is seeking to preserve Comey's personal emails on the theory that they may contain work information subject to FOIA (and relevant to their FOIA requests concerning the FISA warrant and investigations of Trump). Comey's admitted he had a personal email account (not a big deal) and that he used it for work purposes occasionally (not necessarily a big deal) but taken together those should make the contents a slam-dunk legal case for preservation of those emails. This is not an ordinary low-stakes case where you can ask someone to check their personal email for responsive information and assume they'll do an honest search and give you whatever they have.
