Democrats are defending the unprecedented raid on Trump’s home. They claim the 45th president “violated” the law by taking documents with him from the White House.
They neglect the fact that Trump had been cooperating with the government. They even advised him on adding locks to his storeroom.
And now, people are asking why they didn’t do this to Obama—even though he took millions of documents with him.
From New York Post:
At the end of his presidency, Barack Obama trucked 30 million pages of his administration’s records to Chicago, promising to digitize them and eventually put them online — a move that outraged historians.
More than five years after Obama’s presidency ended, the National Archives webpage reveals that zero pages have been digitized and disclosed. People can file requests via the Freedom of Information Act (a law Obama helped wreck) to access Obama records, but responses from presidential libraries can be delayed for years, even more than a decade, if the information is classified.
Oh, how interesting!
Barack Obama took with him 30 million pages of documents with him when he left office. Historians were “outraged” over this move.
Yet Obama claimed he was allowed to, citing the very law Democrats are saying Trump broke.
Obama promised he’d “digitize” all these files and make them available to the National Archives.
Yet it’s been over five years since he left office and not one of those files is available online.
Despite all this, the FBI did not think it was necessary to raid Obama’s home or office.
So, let’s stop pretending this is really about classified documents.
This raid came just days before Trump was set to testify before New York’s AG. And this raid coincided with rumors that Trump would announce his 2024 plans by the end of the Summer.
The raid also comes as Americans prepare for a big election season, one in which Trump has been endorsing numerous candidates.
Hmm… do you think this raid has to do with a few boxes of documents, or as a means of framing Trump in some way?
We can’t say for certain—but the fact Obama was allowed to take 30 million pages with him speaks volumes.
- Obama took 30 million pages of documents from the White House.
- His office has yet to digitize them, despite promises to the National Archives.
- The FBI never investigated Obama nor raided his home or office.
