Have you ever been to a government office to pick up a document -- your driver's license, say -- only to be sent to another window, where the clerk sends you to another window, where a clerk sends you back to the first to start all over again?
That's what it feels like these days asking Bill and Hillary Clinton about their White House records. Last weekend, USA Today reported that it had finally received some records from the Clinton Presidency four years after making a Freedom of Information Act request. Except that hundreds of pages pertaining to the handling of Bill Clinton's 140 last-minute pardons had been redacted or withheld by the helpful folks at the National Archives.
The Archives told USA Today that they had referred all the excluded and redacted material to lawyer Bruce Lindsey, the longtime keeper of Clinton secrets who's responsible for vetting the records. But Mr. Lindsey refused; apparently he doesn't want to second-guess the Archives. The Clintons themselves, meanwhile, say that everything is in the hands of the Archives and Mr. Lindsey, even though the Archives are acting pursuant to Bill's personal instructions, and those instructions include a provision to allow Mr. Lindsay to second-guess the Archivists.

There's a SEARCH field in the upper right of my screen. That's all I have been able to find.....
The Clintons can keep playing this shell game indefinitely, and people will let them get away with it.
Listen, everybody knows what happened with the pardons, and everybody is being very careful to make sure that nobody proves it. It is all too sleazy.
Ah, yes....the old “nobody has the responsibility” ploy.....
I doubt whether that doublewide money-raising clinton Museum even has any of these sensitive records. I imagine they have been shredded. They just don’t want to say so until after the clintons have gone on to their reward.
Meantime the Library is a monument to clinton’s “legacy” that Little Rock can rejoice in. Plenty of propaganda fodder for sale in the gift shoppe.
Craig who? Craig Livingstone?
Never heard of him.
Don't know how he got here!
Who hired him?
Don't think anybody knows!
Upper LEFT of my screen...
Thanks, but I can’t find the Search function on either the upper Left or upper Right of my new screen, and yes, I am logged in. The Search function used to be right in the middle, above the first article listing. I don’t know where it is now.
What stuns me about this story is how can any Democrat look at stories like this and say “yep, this is the candidate I want in office representing mke in a fair and truthful way” boggles the mind...
The Clinton pretty much set the bar on parsing, prevarication, obfuscation, and data loss.
Go to the home page.
Top Left of this very page.
Dhimmirats don’t think, the FEEEEL.
And it FEEEEELS good to vote for a woman or a black man.
Issues don’t matter. Besides, the issues they know about FEEEEEEL good, and aren’t “mean”.
Thank you. It was nowhere else that I could find it.
And after I posted that, I found it’s on the bottom, left of the page too.
I do miss the old format, of course if I had my way, I’d still be driving my father’s ‘54 Kaiser too.
I HATE the new format.
