In white collar crime cases we do not deal with footprints left by the perpetrator in the snow. But the tracks are still there - whether it be in documents, emails, or telephone conversations. At the white house the tracks may be easy to follow, as prosecutors can see who came and went from the Presidential home and office and who the visitor saw while there.
According to the Washington Post here, the tracks being examined are the secret service logs of who Abramoff visited at the white house. But it isn't the FBI, DOJ, or other government agency requesting them. Instead, this time it is Judicial Watch, a public interest group.
