In recent weeks, we’ve learned just how poorly the National Archives handles sensitive information. It dropped the ball with Joe Biden, who was able to improperly keep classified documents from his time as vice president. And we recently learned that Mike Pence also had a few classified documents at his home.
But, we’re supposed to believe the agency, when it came out and said it had everything from the Obama administration!?
From The Western Journal:
On Aug. 12… the Nation Archives and Records Administration issued a statement assuring the public it had “assumed exclusive legal and physical custody of Obama Presidential records when President Barack Obama left office in 2017.”
Really? We all know Obama took 30 million pages of documents from the White House. He even took documents from the Clinton administration. And for years the National Archives was mad that Obama didn’t hand those documents over to it (although, they never called the FBI on him).
But now, we’re supposed to believe the NARA has all of Barry’s records? His team was asked about this very issue. And they did not respond well.
From The Western Journal:
The former president’s staff declined to comment on whether it is conducting its own search for any mishandled classified documents he might have.
“We have nothing for you at this time,” Obama communications director Hannah Hankins told Fox News.
Yikes. That’s one of those “non-responses.” Obama’s team couldn’t say, decisively, that it wasn’t holding onto classified documents. Hey, when you take 30 million pages, you don’t really know what you have in your boxes.
Clearly, Obama’s team is very worried. They don’t know what is in their possession. Obama promised to digitize the documents from his time in office, for his library. But that has yet to happen.
This response to Fox News suggests Obama’s team is scrambling to look for anything classified in that huge stash of documents. And even if what they have is cleared, how do they know something isn’t stashed away in a garage or beachfront home?
“We have nothing…” is just a stall tactic. It could suggest Obama is sitting on a lot of documents. I wouldn’t put it past a man like him for taking boxes of classified documents–as a monument to his “legacy.” The DOJ accused Trump of taking documents as souvenirs from his time in office.
If that’s true, just imagine what an egomaniac like Barry, took?
- Obama’s team refused to answer if it had found classified documents.
- He infamously took 30 million pages of documents when the left office.
- This comes as the documents scandal explodes, exposing many former officials.
