It would only make sense that the White House Office of Administration would announce it is exempting itself from the Freedom of Information Act on National Freedom of Information- on day, during what is know as “Sunshine week,” a week when government transparency is emphasized by the media.
Of course, the White House could have announced this any- time since 2008, when a federal judge ruled that the Office of Administration could exempt itself from the act. But it never did—until now.
Of all the days of the year to make this decision, it’s far- fetched to think this was a coincidence.
Frankly, it’s just a slap in the face to those who do advocate for transparency.
But in all honesty, should we really be surprised at this by now?
Transparency (and logic) has never really been a thing with Obama’s crew.
We’ve got Benghazi, Lois Lerner, now Hillary’s private email account.
Since everything is going to be hush-hush, at least don’t be asinine about it by pulling stunts like announcing exemption of the FOIA on free information day.
