Arrogant. Blind and Stupid, Too!!

Not that Obama & Co. are the only players here. Clinton and Bush helped.

But here's the Obama part.

Last year, federal Judge Royce Lambert ruled that the Executive Office of the President (EOP) is covered under the Privacy Act. In that decision, Lambert tartly added that “...this court holds that under the Privacy Act, the word ‘agency’ includes the Executive Office of the President, just as the Privacy Act says.”

So this year, the Obama White House comes back in the same case and asks Lambert to grant a motion for summary dismissal, arguing that “the White House is not an agency under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and it necessarily follows that it is not an agency subject to the Privacy Act.”

This all started when HRC obtained 400 FBI files on various people (like Henry Hyde).
