“O” Is For Opaque

Yet another element of the pattern of abuse by the mal-Administration of the faithless feckless former President has come to light.  This revelation, which should actually be unsurprising to those who have been following the debacle at the FBI/DoJ, concerns the National Archives.

Crisis at the National Archives

By Thomas Lipscomb, Real Clear Politics

In the middle of directing the difficult task of transferring the historically important records of the Obama administration into the National Archives, the archivist in charge, David Ferriero, ran into a serious problem: A lot of key records are missing.

And yet the accumulation of recent congressional testimony has made it clear that the Obama administration itself engaged in the wholesale destruction and “loss” of tens of thousands of government records covered under the act as well as the intentional evasion of the government records recording system by engaging in private email exchanges. So far, former President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Lynch and several EPA officials have been named as offenders. The IRS suffered record “losses” as well. Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy called it “an unauthorized private communications system for official business for the patent purpose of defeating federal record-keeping and disclosure laws.”

Yes indeed.  The man who bewails the destruction of his policy legacy went out of his way to erase his paper trail (just as he did for his entire academic career and in every position he has held since).  Far from being “the most transparant Administration” it is quite clear that B. Hussein Obama, his Secretary of State (Felonia Milhous VonPantsuit), Attorney General (Loretta Lynch) and various other officials of his administration routinely used non-government networks and devices specifically to avoid records retention.

Given this non-compliance I think that the Obama Library should receive no Federal Funds and any supporting foundation should be treated as a for profit organization.
