It’s no secret that transparency was a huge issue during Barack Obama’s presidency. However, even we didn’t think he’d go this far to hide things from the American people.
Conservative Journal reported that it was just revealed that Obama spent a record $36.2 MILLION dollars of taxpayer money in legal fees to try and hide things from the press and from the American people. Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, Obama should have turned over various records when he was asked to. However, he instead spent years and millions of dollars continuing to deny knowing the whereabouts of whatever was in question.
It’s been confirmed that of the $36.2 million “the Justice Department accounted for $12 million, the Homeland Security Department for $6.3 million and the Pentagon for $4.8 million.”
Though Obama’s White House claimed to be “the most transparent administration in history,” it was in no rush to respond to the 788,769 requests for files and were not concerned with the $478 million dollars they paid staff to “answer” them. In a staggering 77% of the requests under President Obama’s administration, the public received censored files or nothing at all.
This proves once and for all that Obama was anything but transparent. SHARE this story if you agree Obama was the most conniving and corrupt president!
