    Kash Patel, a former top Trump administration official, told Breitbart News on Wednesday that a report claiming classified materials were found at Mar-a-Lago is misleading and that the documents were actually already declassified by then-President Donald Trump, but the classification markings had not been updated. “Trump declassified whole sets of materials in anticipation of leaving government that he thought the American public should have the right to read themselves,” Patel told Breitbart News in a phone interview. “The White House counsel failed to generate the paperwork to change the classification markings, but that doesn’t mean the information wasn’t declassified,” Patel...

    FIRST ON FOX: Members of the National Archives' task force on racism have recommended removing the "charters of freedom" description for America’s founding documents, such as the Constitution, arguing that it did not initially grant freedom for all individuals. Approximately 800 National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) employees from across the country attended a town hall meeting of the Archives’ Task Force on Racism on May 11, according to FOIA documents obtained by America Rising and shared with Fox News. During the presentation, a museum subgroup recommended that NARA "retire" the term "charters of freedom" as descriptors for the U.S....

    The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) released a report from a task force that claims "structural racism" impacts the agency. "Structural racism—the overarching system of racial bias across institutions and society—unequivocally impacts how NARA staff interact with records, colleagues, and customers," the report declares. "Discoverability refers to the degree to which records are findable in the Catalog. NARA's records related to BIPOCs [black, indigenous and people of color] are more difficult to find because they are under-described, while our website and Catalog over-describe the records and achievements of White men by using more extensive, superlative, and subjective language," the...

    American Thinker ^ | 28 Jun, 2021 | Andrea Widburg
    A task force surely composed of college graduates (aka Marxists) has attacked America’s Founders, ideas, and architecture. The National Archives and Records Administration (“NARA”), unofficially founded along with America but officially founded in 1934, exists to preserve historic American records and document government activities. Sadly, it’s currently staffed with hardcore Marxists who hate America, both its history and its current configuration. That is the only conclusion one can draw from an NARA task force report saying that NARA, is structurally racist, from the reverence shown for those who created this nation to the architecture of the classical NARA building. Here’s...

    What exactly is Obama concerned with in regard to the “confidentiality interests that all presidents have sought to protect?” Former President Barack Obama has inserted himself into the Russia, Ukraine fiasco; arguably this was not the first time. While Democrats have been denying and protecting their guilt in creating and advancing the Russia Hoax, there is evidence that suggests President Obama likely was aware of the probe. Fox News has obtained a letter from the office of former President Barack Obama to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), which manages presidential records. Why would Obama, four years after leaving...

    The office of former President Barack Obama in March privately bashed Senate Republicans’ investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son in Ukraine, a probe it deemed as lending credence to a “Russian disinformation campaign,” according to a letter obtained by Fox News. The letter, addressed to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), which manages presidential records, was written in response to a request on Nov. 21, 2019, by Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson for Obama administration records on Ukraine-related meetings. The letter referred to their request as improper use of the NARA’s release terms...

    The hunt for Hillary Clinton's emails lives on. A top Republican senator is asking the National Archives and Records Administration to share any email communications it has between former President Barack Obama and Clinton. “I write to request email communications between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama. In January 2018, I requested the Department of Justice (DOJ) produce emails Secretary Clinton sent to President Obama while she was located in the 'territory of a sophisticated adversary,'" Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, wrote to Archivist of the U.S. David Ferriero on...

    The National Archives is doubling down on its refusal to respond to Democratic' requests for documents from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's White House tenure. Archivist David Ferriero wrote in a letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, that it is the agency's policy to only respond to requests from a committee chairman, who are all Republicans. "Accordingly, I am not in a position to change our understanding of the law or our practice in this particular instance," Ferriero said. Feinstein sent a letter to Ferriero last week asking him to reconsider the...

    The Democratic push to get documents from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's work in the George W. Bush administration ran into a new roadblock on Friday. The National Archives, in a letter to Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), said it will only respond to a request for documents under the Presidential Records Act (PRA) if they come from a committee chairman, who are all Republicans. The National Archives and Records “remains unable to respond to PRA special access requests from ranking minority members,” wrote Archivist David Ferriero, who was appointed by former President Obama. Schumer and Ferriero spoke on...

    Evasion 'to suit current politics rather than serve scholars The Obama administration, motivated by politics, engaged in the “wholesale destruction” and “loss” of tens of thousands of government records that should have been preserved by law, according to an investigative reporter. Thomas Lipscomb, founding publisher of Times Books, explained at Real Clear Politics that National Archivist David Ferriero discovered in the process of transferring Obama administration records in the National Archives that many key records are missing. He explained that Ferriero, a “first-rate librarian,” has been leading a much-needed digital overhaul and expansion of the National Archives over the nine...

    In the middle of directing the difficult task of transferring the historically important records of the Obama administration into the National Archives, the archivist in charge, David Ferriero, ran into a serious problem: A lot of key records are missing. **SNIP** To support this effort, in 2014 President Obama signed the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments. For the first time electronic government records were placed under the 1950 Federal Records Act. The new law also included updates clarifying "the responsibilities of federal government officials when using non-government email systems" and empowering "the National Archives to safeguard original and classified...

Mr. Storch will oversee division operations that include budget, information technology and administrative services. He will also supervise...

    Later this year — unless President Trump intervenes — the American people will get access to the last of thousands of secret government files about a turning point in the nation’s history: the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The National Archives this week released several hundred of the documents, which come from CIA and FBI files, and of course, JFK researchers are scrambling to see whether they contain any new clues about the president’s murder. But many more documents remain under seal, awaiting release by this October, the 25-year deadline set by the 1992 Kennedy Assassination Records Collection...

    Over a five-year span, senior officials at the National Archives and Records Administrations (NARA) voiced growing alarm about Hillary Clinton’s record-keeping practices as secretary of state, according to internal documents obtained by Fox News. During Clinton’s final days in office, Paul Wester, the director of Modern Records Programs at NARA – essentially the agency’s chief records custodian – privately emailed five NARA colleagues to confide his fear that Clinton would take her official records with her when she left office, in violation of federal statutes. Referring to a colleague whose full name is unknown, Wester wrote on December 11, 2012:...

    The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) tried to hide an email about its fear of upsetting the White House from Freedom of Information Act requests by the Associated Press, the AP reported Friday. Associated Press president Gary Pruitt reported in an op-ed on government transparency that, during the course of an AP investigation into Michelle Obama’s dresses, NARA used a privacy exemption to redact a line in an email that was actually about the agency’s fear of the White House: As the president said, the United States should not withhold or censor government files merely because they might be...
