Skip to comments.Letter Reveals Obama Foundation Is Keeping Classified Docs in Abandoned Furniture Warehouse
Posted on 09/22/2022 10:06:39 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
The Obama Foundation stored classified documents in an abandoned furniture warehouse, according to a 2018 letter from the Obama Foundation to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
The letter, available on the Obama Foundation website and dated Sept. 11, 2018, reveals that the Obama Foundation not only acknowledged possessing classified documents but also admitted that they kept them in a facility that did not meet NARA standards for the storage of those documents.
The Obama Foundation agreés to transfer up to three million three hundred thousand dollars ($3,300,000) to the National Archives Trust Fund (NATF) to support the move of classified and unclassified Obama Presidential records and artifacts from Hoffman Estates to NARA-controlled facilities that conform to the agency’s archival storage standards for such records and artifacts, and for the modification of such spaces. The first transfer of $300,000 was already made on August 9, 2018. An additional interim transfer will be made within 180 days of that date. Subsequent payments are subject to the negotiation of terms of the digitization process and museum operations.
Media reports confirm that the Obama Foundation had rented space from Hoffman Estates to store these documents, and extended their original lease for four more years back in August.

“While no firm date has been announced for the completion and opening of the Barack Obama Presidential Library near the University of Chicago, its future contents will stay in Hoffman Estates for four more years,” the Daily Herald reported. “Village board members unanimously approved an extension to the special-use permit that enables landlord Hoffman Estates Medical Development LLC to lease the 74,200-square-foot former Plunkett Furniture store at 2500 W. Golf Road to the National Archives and Records Administration through Dec. 31, 2026.”
While the storage of these documents appears to be with the full knowledge and coordination of NARA, it still raises significant questions, not just concerning the raid of Mar-a-Lago, but also surrounding the legal actions being taken by the Biden administration against Trump over the storage of these documents.
Seeing as Mar-a-Lago is Trump’s Florida home, it is protected by Secret Service, making it far more secure than whatever setup they likely had at the former furniture store space. There is no mention of what kind of security measures are in place to protect the Obama documents — if there are any at all.
Sure, he’s got dossier’s on everyone now.
Quick! To the abandoned warehouse!
Hoffman Estates... interesting, given that is where subpoenaed Russiagate documents were taken to during the Obama Admin.

Nunes, Gowdy, and Schiff, Republicans and Democrats on the House intelligence committee have issued a series of subpoenas to relevant intelligence agencies for records of; X-National Security Adviser Susan Rice, X-CIA Director John Brennan, and X-Ambassador, Samantha Power, concerning the Russia Probe and related matters. Early April Judicial Watch issued a FoIA request to NSC, demanding records concerning Rices’ government communications on a related range of subjects.
House intelligence committee says that legacy NSC staffers, have been slow-walking the subpoenaed materials. “We’ve been waiting since March 15 for this information. //Snipp//
The actual records, it seems, have all been transferred by the hold-over NSC staffers to a heavily secure location for a planned Obama library in “Hoffman Estates”, Illinois. NSC Access Director John Powers explains, “Documents from the Obama administration have been transferred ...“You may send your request to the Obama Library. However, you should be aware that under the Presidential Records Act, presidential records remain closed to the public for five years after an administration has left office.”

Judicial Watch today announced that the National Security Council (NSC) on May 23, 2017, informed it by letter that the materials regarding the unmasking by Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice of “the identities of any U.S. citizens associated with the Trump presidential campaign or transition team” were removed government possession.
The documents were moved to the Obama Library....
” The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) assumed exclusive legal and physical custody of Obama Presidential records when President Barack Obama left office in 2017, in accordance with the Presidential Records Act (PRA). NARA moved approximately 30 million pages of unclassified records to a NARA facility in the Chicago area where they are maintained exclusively by NARA. Additionally, NARA maintains the classified Obama Presidential records in a NARA facility in the Washington, DC, area. As required by the PRA, former President Obama has no control over where and how NARA stores the Presidential records of his Administration.

The left’s motto is “Do as I say, not as I do”.
It doesn’t sound like that’s an “abandoned” warehouse, only that it was formerly a furniture warehouse.
But as long as the misleading title generates clicks, that’s OK.
Well he is African born with African father so he is exempt
It’s okay if Obonzo does it. He’s a commie RAT like his father used to dream of being.
The DOJ needs to be defunded. It’s a political time bomb.
Wouldn’t it be “funny” if all those abandoned classified documents got stolen? Atty. Garland wouldn’t have the nerve to even file chatges, thus implicating himself in the crime.
So when is the FBI going to raid his home? Partisans beware, this is evidence of the destruction of our country by the government. It must stop, now.
