I have a question. Are those executive orders blocking the viewing of his college transcripts, COLB etc, void at the end of his presidency? Anybody know for sure?
The EO in question which will continue unless changed by another President:
The history of the EOs on Presidential Records begins when President Reagan signed the first EO 12667, Jan. 18, 1989. The EO continues unless changed by an EO.
On January 21, 2009, Executive Order 13233 [GW Bush EO] was revoked by executive order of President Barack Obama. Obama essentially restored the wording of Executive Order 12667 [Reagan’s EO], by repeating most of the text of that order with minor changes. One notable change is that vice presidential records are explicitly covered by his new order. From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_Order_13233
The Presidential Records Act only covers items associated with the presidential term and not the life history or that’s how I understand it.
Executive Orders remain in effect until rescinded, by the the issuing president or a subsequent president.
Out of curiosity, what is the number of the Executive Order blocking those documents? I'd like to read that one.
