Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton are sidestepping the classified documents controversies embroiling their successors, with staffers saying the former presidents all turned over their materials to the National Archives and Records Administration years ago when they left office.
"That process was conducted in 2008 and 2009, and all Presidential records – classified and unclassified – were turned over to the National Archives upon leaving the White House," said Freddy Ford, Bush's spokesperson, when asked what Bush is doing to assess whether he has any classified documents in his possession, in light of recent discoveries that President Joe Biden as well as former President Donald Trump had kept classified records.
Clinton's office similarly says, "All of President Clinton's classified materials were properly turned over to NARA in accordance with the Presidential Records Act."
Obama's office also says his classified documents are with NARA and pointed to a September statement from NARA, refuting news outlets and individuals on social media who were "mistakenly reporting" that NARA confirmed a large number of Obama's presidential records were missing. "This is false," the statement said. "NARA has never issued any such statement and is not aware of any missing boxes of Presidential records from the Obama administration."

Uhhh... We’ll just take their word for it.
The advantages of a bought-and-paid-for DOJ.
Of course. The simple explanation is Trump docs were legally declassed and declared. Some may have been planted by the FBI. Pence docs were planted. Biden’s? He was just a dumba$$.
Trust but verify. Let the raids begin.
Calls or some midnight FBI raids, just to be sure.
Who is renting that warehouse in Chicago? The National Archives?
Didn’t Biden say or strongly imply the same?
No reason to believe any of them.
When it comes to Obama, he’s probably lying. When it comes to Clinton and Bush, its because they have presidential libraries that hold all their documents. What Bill doesn’t mention is that Hillary probably still has some classified documents.
Oh yeah right sure thing
This won’t age well.
It depends upon what the meaning of the word “is” is.
All of Soetero’s are in a vacant department store in Chicago.
Like I’m going to believe three known liars.
In other news, there was a brown out reported near each of the former president’s private residences do to unusually heavy electrical loads.
In even other news, the EPA filed a complaint against Shredder manufactures for regulatory non-compliance regarding high electrical loads experienced during sustained continuous full capacity utilization.
And a few hundred FBI files.
