NSC Refuses to Turn Over FOIA'd Docs on Unmasking to Judicial Watch; Says They've Been Turned Over to the Obama Library, Which Will Keep Them Secret for Five Years

How very convenient.

Judicial Watch announced on June 19 that the National Security Council has revealed that documents regarding the unmasking by President Barack Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice of “the identities of any U.S. citizens associated with the Trump presidential campaign or transition team” have been removed to the Obama Library.

Such documents, by law, cannot be released to the public for at least five years, and after that the library may still erect hurdles to access them. In effect, documents reportedly related to Congress’ investigation of Russia collusion in the 2016 election are now sealed, including materials gathered by the Obama administration in 2015-16 and perhaps earlier.

Meanwhile, Powerline blogger Scott Johnson has received a letter from a lawyer in some confabulated lawsuit against Trump demanding that he preserve his notes of an interview he had with Trump.
