Earlier this year, Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice was accused of illegally unmasking American names in security reports, possibly for the purpose of spying on the Trump campaign and transition teams.
In April, Judicial Watch recently submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the National Security Council (NSC) to see all the documents related to Rice’s unmasking activities.
Judicial Watch just received this reply:
“Documents from the Obama administration have been transferred to the Barack Obama Presidential Library. You may send your request to the Obama Library. However, you should be aware that under the Presidential Records Act, Presidential records remain closed to the public for five years after an administration has left office.”
“Closed to the public for five years”?! Hmmm … lemme think. Could this be flagrant stonewalling by former Obama officials to conceal Obama’s dirty tricks before and after the election?
Judicial Watch is considering legal options to get these documents.
