    White House office to delete its FOIA regulations[W:84]

    White House office to delete its FOIA regulations

    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.

    .... the Office of Administration responded to FOIA requests for 30 years. Until the Obama administration,.....
    The MOST transparent administration in the history of the Universe!!!!!

    The bolded is deceptive and out of context. This practice, says your link, began during the Bush administration. Blame the court if you don't like this.

    In 2009, a federal appeals court in Washington ruled that the Office of Administration was not subject to the FOIA, "because it performs only operational and administrative tasks in support of the president and his staff and therefore, under our precedent, lacks substantial independent authority."

    Of all the administrations we've had in the last 7 years they are by far the most transparent.

    They definitely aren't the most transparent, but they did reverse most of the shady stuff started in the Bush Administration.

    They want you to have to come visit the Obama Presidential Library to pay a $2 per page copy charge to get what you want. Obama has no pretense of doing anything now. He is just preparing his exit strategy. Marginalize Hillary to get foundation donors-check; make people come to his library--check. A few more selfies and inspiring photos for kids in the future who know no better about his presidency other than he was black, and he can start packing.
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    Look on the brightside, it will give your guy something to promise and not do. In fact, the smallest improvement will give you something to crow about.
