White House no longer subject to Freedom of Information Act

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/poli ... /24844253/

WASHINGTON — The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, making official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject requests for records to that office.

The White House said the cleanup of FOIA regulations is consistent with court rulings that hold that the office is not subject to the transparency law. The office handles, among other things, White House record-keeping duties like the archiving of e-mails.


And people want to vote that decrepit bitch Hillary in?

One of the reasons I refused to vote for his re-election was this. I honestly believed him when he said it would be the most transparent administration ever and it's been one of the least. What gets me is that they still claim to be open and transparent. They really take us for fools.

Anyone besides that decrepit bitch Hillary.

At least with anyone else, they are out and proud scoundrels and not deceptive elitists.

State Dept. admits intentionally altering video of press conference

Spokesman John Kirby's announcement contradicts the position held by the department for the last three weeks, during which officials said the video was missing because of a "glitch."
The missing video clip was revealed more than three weeks ago, and it involves then-spokeswoman Jen Psaki, who was asked in 2013 whether officials ever lie to the public to protect national security interests. Psaki seemed to indicate that this does happen.

"Most Transparent Administration Ever" Spent $36 Million On FOIA Lawsuits In Final Year

The Obama administration in its final year in office spent a record $36.2 million on legal costs defending its refusal to turn over federal records under the Freedom of Information Act, according to an Associated Press analysis of new U.S. data that also showed poor performance in other categories measuring transparency in government.

For a second consecutive year, the Obama administration set a record for times federal employees told citizens, journalists and others that despite searching they couldn't find a single page of files that were requested.
