This has got to be the ultimate in arrogance. What about releasing his records first? College records, health records, campaign donation records….Birth Certificate?
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama has issued an executive order that limits the ability of former presidents to block the release of sensitive records of their time in the White House.
Obama’s action Wednesday in his first full day in office overturns an earlier order issued by George W. Bush.
Obama said former presidents may ask to have certain documents kept private, but they no longer may compel the National Archives to do so.
Obama’s executive order also makes clear that neither former vice presidents nor relatives of former presidents who have died have authority to keep records private.
Bush’s executive order, issued in November 2001, prompted a federal lawsuit and the partial invalidation of the order.
On his first day no less. One set of rules for him, another for everyone else. What an arrogant prick. Welcome to the beginning of the indoctrination.
