Clinton Hides From Her Past

Hillary Clinton has successfully gotten millions of pages of her records from her previous time in the White House locked away by federal archivists.

Why? What is she hiding?

The archivists maintain they're processing those documents as fast as possible, but some are not convinced. Judicial Watch submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act demanding the release of Hillary Clinton's diaries, telephone logs, daily planners and schedules. In the 1990s, the group filed suits against the Clinton administration that led to revelations about fundraising practices, including Democratic campaign donors being tapped for official trade missions. In the most recent suit, Judicial Watch said it had submitted its request more than a year ago and had received nothing, save for confirmation that the library possessed "a substantial volume" of such papers.

Thomas S. Blanton, director of the National Security Archive, a research institute at George Washington University, said, "There's no reason why a load of a few hundred FOIA requests should absorb 11 full-time people perpetually."

If Hillary is one of the leaders of this new 'open, ethical' Congress, why is she trying to hide her records? Hmmm...

There's my two cents.
