    Looks like Obama's stash is less secure than Trump's

    Will Obama's house be raided?

    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

    YOU already tried this BS

    Obama didn’t keep millions of classified White House documents


    Obama administration records are exclusively held and maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration, the federal agency confirmed on Friday. Millions of unclassified documents were transferred after Obama left office to a NARA facility in Chicago, but neither Obama’s personal foundation nor the facility set to house his presidential memorabilia have control over those papers.

    NARA Press Release Statement on Obama Presidential Records



    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.

    Obama did not keep classified documents, the National Archives confirms.

    The National Archives “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,” the statement said. “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, D.C., area.”

    “As required by the P.R.A.,” the statement added, referring to the Presidential Records Act, “former President Obama has no control over where and how NARA stores the presidential records of his administration.”


    In 2017, the National Archives announced that the Obama presidential records were in its possession and that it would preserve them in an archival facility rather than in a traditional presidential library. It said it would digitize all unclassified records using funding from the Obama Foundation. “Classified records will be stored in the Washington, D.C., area, where they can more efficiently and effectively be secured and reviewed for declassification,” the announcement said. “As classified records are declassified and released, NARA will make them available in digitized form.

    NO PAYWALL

    Obama's presidential library will break from the precedent in that the Obama Foundation will pay for the unclassified records to be digitized in a bid to democratize access to the documents, in what has been billed to be the "first digital archives for the first digital president," according to The New York Times.

    The letter, 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.

    Nothing backfired and the "Abandoned Furniture Warehouse" was less secure than Trump's double locked, SS guarded room. The warehouse owner could access classified documents at will..

    The "museum" has not been built yet and the Obama Foundation has never digitized the records, hence they renewed the warehouse lease..... So the ball is in your court and you "try again"

    The key words you highlight are "Hoffman Estates" a village where the Obama's do not live but where the documents were sent and "NARA controlled facilities" which mean they are controlled by the government not the Obamas.

    Just because YOU repeat a lie doesn't make it true. The letter says no such thing

    Reading comprehension issues? Obama Foundation is simply PAYING NARA to hold the docs (none of the classified are in Chicago, but as the link I gave, are in DC), and NARA has them

    AUGUST 12, 2022

    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.

    No signs call attention to the location, and the Barack Obama Presidential Library is not open to the public. After first landing in Hoffman Estates, the classified material was eventually sent to a NARA facility in Maryland. The NARA staffers in Hoffman Estates are organizing Obama’s unclassified papers and preserving artifacts — some 35,000 objects — from jackets, to gifts from foreign leaders to one of the Cross pens used to sign the Obamacare law.

    • In a Friday statement, NARA said it “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, D.C, area. As required by the PRA (Presidential Records Act) former President Obama has no control over where and how NARA stores the Presidential records of his Administration.”


    The Obama Foundation is paying NARA to digitalize Obama’s documents.

    No it won't the FBI is a tool of oppressive regimes. What should be done in retaliation of this is should we get a Republican elected to president he abolishes the FBI.

    You don't use the use the previous administration's weapons you destroy them.

    A massive volume of paperwork, electronic data and artifacts will find a temporary home at the old Plunkett Home Furnishings store on Golf Road in Hoffman Estates. As many as 120 employees will be brought in by the National Archives and Records Administration to sort through the material, which ultimately will be part of the Obama Presidential Center.

    The National Archives employees will organize, digitize and preserve the contents of what is sometimes called the "president's attic," said John Laster, who directs the Presidential Materials Division at the agency and has toured the Hoffman Estates site.

    The space at 2500 W. Golf Road was leased in February by the General Services Administration. Village officials are expected to consider a special use permit for the project, which has the backing of Mayor Bill McLeod, in July. Work at the location could start as soon as October.

    ...Technically, the National Archives doesn't take legal custody of Obama's documents until 12:01 p.m. Jan. 20, after the next commander in chief takes the oath. But with an OK from the White House, the agency can begin shipping and organizing some materials well before that date, Laster said.


    ...The old Plunkett's store, which was shuttered in 2009 after the housing market crashed, was leased by the government for six years for $11.3 million. The nearly 74,000 square feet of space will not be open to the public, so people will have to wait until Obama's Presidential Center opens to lay eyes on the lode of documents and artifacts.

    so? The Obama Presidential Library is part of the presidential libraries system administered by the National Archives and Records Administration, a federal agency.

    Where are the documents at exactly in this picture?
    The majority of columns for the lower level of the two-story parking garage structure have been cast and construction of the concrete perimeter walls on the lower level is nearly complete

    Interesting read..... was Obama hiding his participation in an a failed attempted coup against a duly elected president? What better way to just seal all of his records up for 12 years...

    Obama thinks he can get away with all of this by hiding behind the Presidential Records Act. Just before leaving office, President Obama had all of these records transferred to his presidential library. Once there, the documents are placed under lock and key for five years. Congress can't get them. The American people can't get them. And the Obama officials who violated the law and Constitution get to skate..

    We know that the Obama administration tried to get a warrant to spy on Donald Trump and his aides, but the judge turned them down. So what did they do? They listened in every time the Donald Trump or his aides spoke over the phone to someone overseas, including during the Presidential transition period.
    Congress has subpoenaed these records. Civilian watchdog organizations have filed lawsuits demanding that the records be made public.
    Yesterday, we learned that would not be happening.

    Someone is too uninterested in their own links to actually read their own sources. Big surprise.

    Obstruction of justice 101....

    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.
