These emails do not show anything. Not even something that might warrant an investigation.
If one is looking to hold the bar at a proof-positive, irrefutable evidence, type of level; then sure, I agree with you...If, however, you look at what occurred, union workers kept their pensions in tact while non-union workers got screwed; and then walk the dog back and try to figure out who was responsible, these emails are a part of that puzzle.
If your argument is that we haven't found the one Perry Mason moment in the case, yet, then yes, I agree with you. But this is less of an ah-ha moment; it is simply an outer layer of the onion beginning to get peeled back.
But, as you know JE, I argued that this whole situation surrounding the GM and Chrysler bailouts was corrupt when it happened in 2009, I've said it from the moment the deal was announced. Corruption by high level government officials can be hidden for periods of time, generally until the opposition party gains additional measures of power. At this point, who do you really expect would be investigating this? Holder's Justice Department?
But if the President wins a second term, and the R's regain the Senate, I wouldn't be surprised to see quite a few investigations delving into matters of national corruption. It's a reasonable possibility.
