Another day, another set of documents Obama doesn’t want us to see.
Normally he keeps his own paperwork under wraps, like birth certificates and college grades. Now Obama is stepping in to protect his would-be successor, Hillary Clinton. And once again, emails from Clinton’s time as Secretary of State are at issue — and the timing is highly suspicious, to put it mildly.
As reported at Conservative Tribune…
One issue that has threatened to do damage to Clinton’s campaign has been the so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership — a controversial, 12-nation trade deal promoted by Clinton and President Barack Obama.
However, when the International Business Times submitted an open records request for correspondence between Clinton’s State Department and the United States Trade Representative, the Obama administration abruptly blocked the release of any emails about the TPP. (…)
The State Department originally estimated that the request would be completed by April 2016.
But, on May 31, the agency said it had completed the search process for the correspondence, however the request would not be actually completed until late November 2016 — conveniently weeks after the presidential election.
Even if these documents are released before November, Clinton’s flip flopping on the TPP are a matter of public record. She has both promoted and opposed the trade deal numerous times.
All this White House stonewalling will do is raise even more concerns in the minds of people contemplating casting a ballot for Clinton.
