Susan Rice Unmasking Records Moved To Obama Library To Stay Classified

 

While former President Barack Obama has been out of office for well over 6 months, his influence on Washington D.C. remains reprehensibly intact.

...

Now, as we discover that even more sinister attempts to thwart Trump were at hand, namely in the case of Susan Rice’s unmasking of the Trump transition team to Obama and the democrats, those seeking political justice have been truly incensed.  As true Americans attempt to discover the truth behind the Rice incident, they have again been thwarted by the dastardly Obama.

“Judicial Watch today announced that the National Security Council (NSC) on May 23, 2017, informed it by letter that the materials regarding the unmasking by Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice of ‘the identities of any U.S. citizens associated with the Trump presidential campaign or transition team’ have been removed to the Obama Library.

“The NSC will not fulfill an April 4 Judicial Watch request for records regarding information relating to people ‘who were identified pursuant to intelligence collection activities.’

“The agency also informed Judicial Watch that it would not turn over communications with any Intelligence Community member or agency concerning the alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election; the hacking of DNC computers; or the suspected communications between Russia and Trump campaign/transition officials. Specifically, the NSC told Judicial Watch:

”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.'”

That makes Obama an accomplice, and "Presidential libraries", are no where in the Constitution. Not only that, that means, former President Obama, stole state secrets, he no longer has a right to be anywhere near.

"Back in April, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request for documents related to the unmasking of “the identities of any U.S. citizens associated with the Trump presidential campaign or transition team” by Obama's National Security Advisor Susan Rice.  Unfortunately, and quite conveniently for members of the Obama administration, Judicial Watch has been informed by the National Security Council that records related to their request can not be shared because they " have been transferred to the Barack Obama Presidential Library" and will "remain closed to the public for five years."  "

According to this analysis, Trump can get at those records if he really wants them.   It'll be interesting to see how hard he pushes.

CONFIRMED: Trump Can Get The Unmasking Records Out of Obama Library

Quote

...

The federal government still owns the records, not the museum, according to the National Archives website: “The United States shall reserve and retain complete ownership, possession, and control of Presidential records; and such records shall be administered in accordance with the provisions of this chapter.”

The national Archivist has custody of the records, according to the Archives site: “Upon the conclusion of a President’s term of office, or if a President serves consecutive terms upon the conclusion of the last term, the Archivist of the United States shall assume responsibility for the custody, control, and preservation of, and access to, the Presidential records of that President.”

Since the NSC cited the five-year confidentiality window, that means the only thing specifically hiding the records is the Presidential Records Act, which has certain exceptions.

Are the records closed to the public? Yes. But not closed to the current president, Congress, or law enforcement officials who can get the information and make it public themselves.

#1 ... there IS NO Obama library - scheduled to be built sometime around 2021

#2 ... The "Presidential Records Act" covers presidential correspondence. In this case they are after RICE's emails

#3 ... There are NUMEROUS cited exceptions to the 5yr seal deal - criminal and National Security subpoenas being two of them.

Trump CAN and MUST get these records if his claims of further SWAMP DRAINING are to be believed.
