Apparently Obama likes library jokes

So here’s my latest one: Obama worked so hard to get his Chicago LieBarry passed…. for records that are missing. Now wasn’t that hilarious?

Real Clear Politics    (excerpts)
By Thomas Lipscomb — “Crisis at the National Archives
June 10, 2018

To support this effort, in 2014 President Obama signed the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments. For the first time electronic government records were placed under the 1950 Federal Records Act. The new law also included updates clarifying “the responsibilities of federal government officials when using non-government email systems” and empowering “the National Archives to safeguard original and classified records from unauthorized removal.” Additionally, it gives the Archivist of the United States the final authority in determining just what is a government record.

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.”

Clearly, America’s National Archives is facing the first major challenge to its historic role in preserving the records of the United States. What good is the National Archives administering a presidential library, like the planned Obama library in Chicago, if it is missing critical records of interest to scholars? And what’s to prevent evasion of the entire federal records system by subsequent administrations to suit current politics rather than serve scholars for centuries to come?

Obama is the scandal that really never ends. Between his legacy of lies and Hillary, they are rival experts at hiding records. Where is the award for that?

Past is prologue with Hillary

The problem with Hillary is we don’t have to look far from her for a parallel. She wants us to think this is all about nothing. She wants us to think she was not trying to bypass the national archives.(and certainly their filing system to comply with FOIA requests.)

But just take a trip back to the Clinton years and who pops up? Good old Sandy Berger, notorious document thief. He was caught stealing documents from national archives.

Sandy Berger fined $50,000 for taking documents

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger was sentenced Thursday to community service and probation and fined $50,000 for illegally removing highly classified documents from the National Archives and intentionally destroying some of them.

Berger must perform 100 hours of community service and pay the fine as well as $6,905 for the administrative costs of his two-year probation, a district court judge ruled.

“I deeply regret the actions that I took at the National Archives two years ago, and I accept the judgment of the court,” Berger said outside the courthouse after his sentencing.

According to the charges, Berger — between September 2 and October 2, 2003 — “knowingly removed classified documents from the National Archives and Records Administration and stored and retained such documents at places,” such as his private Washington office. – More>

With that in mind, Hillary just started out from a point of securing information on her private server. Problem solved. In the event of a problem, she has control over the records she kept there. Sandy Berger had nothing on Hillary. And his pants were probably not large enough to hold those documents.
