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.”
Here is the full letter received from the National Secruity Council:
“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.”
