Evasion 'to suit current politics rather than serve scholars
The Obama administration, motivated by politics, engaged in the wholesale destruction and loss of tens of thousands of government records that should have been preserved by law, according to an investigative reporter.
Thomas Lipscomb, founding publisher of Times Books, explained at Real Clear Politics that National Archivist David Ferriero discovered in the process of transferring Obama administration records in the National Archives that many key records are missing.
He explained that Ferriero, a first-rate librarian, has been leading a much-needed digital overhaul and expansion of the National Archives over the nine years of his appointment that will greatly improve access to the files.
To support this effort, in 2014 President Obama signed the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments. For the first time electronic government records were placed under the 1950 Federal Records Act. The new law also included updates clarifying the responsibilities of federal government officials when using non-government email systems and empowering the National Archives to safeguard original and classified records from unauthorized removal. Additionally, it gives the archivist of the United States the final authority in determining just what is a government record, he said.
However, the accumulation of recent congressional testimony has made it clear that the Obama administration itself engaged in the wholesale destruction and loss of tens of thousands of government records covered under the act as well as the intentional evasion of the government records recording system by engaging in private email exchanges.

is this NEW news???
Good, now erase the rest of the eight years of Obama so he did not exist.
I’m shocked I tell ya. Shocked.
Yeah; not really. Everyone on the planet should know the obama Admin was as corrupt as it could possibly be and then some.
They were aided and abetted by the MSM aks leftist political activists. Far beyond propagandists. The deep state also did their part.
I think we should just make an exception to the law that says we must have proof of a crime and just throw the lot of them into prison for the rest of their natural lives.
What a Surprise! NOT!! Obambi refused to keep the daily log of who, when, how, why, etc. He was / is as above the law as most other Liberal Creepozoids. Rules, laws, and regulations are for the lower people. We now know that Obambi’s IRS attacks on individuals and organizations is just the tip of the iceberg on Obambi’s use of all the levers of the State against any and all enemies.
You kidding me? Even this idiot’s presidential library does not have ANY hard documents before he became a senator on display. Unlike the Reagan, Clinton and Bush libraries, the history is nowhere to be found.
The most transparent presidency, EVER! HE said so HISSELF.
How many seconds of tape did Nixon erase ...
Thats what happens when everybody in the District of Corruption decides to ignore part of the Constitution to have the first black President.
Illegitimate usurpers have no respect for the law or the Constitution. Why should they?
His invisible shield is the fear of everyone else in the District of Corruption having their own culpability being exposed.
There will be no accountability for the Kenyanesian Usurper.
Marjorie woods owned up for 7 minutes out of 18.5?
Who was in charge of them after that?
They were aided and abetted by the GOP.
Obama could not have usurped the office without their complete cooperation.
Like Sgt. Schultz....”Nothing”
And yet they’re gluing torn up pages by Trump back together again. Gotta save every scrap of evidence you know.
Obama knew nothing unfortunately.
They sure think he did though.
As for what went on behind the scenes, he’s knows plenty.
Mrs. Bill Clinton destroyed 30,000 emails too.
McCain as the alleged opposition candidate straight-up campaigned for Obama. Never forget!
Barack 0bama has no documented history because he didn’t exist until it became convenient for him to be created.
