In 2004, Hillary Clinton promised that all Clinton records would be released earlier than the law requires.
Clinton’s records have not been released ahead of schedule. In fact, a huge pile of them remain under seal.
A trove of Clinton White House records long processed for release remains hidden from public view at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock — even though the legal basis initially used to withhold them expired more than a year ago.
The papers contain confidential advice given to or sought by President Bill Clinton, including communications with then-first lady Hillary Clinton, and records about people considered for appointments to federal office.
About 33,000 pages of documents are involved, according to the National Archives, which runs the library.
Under the Presidential Records Act, such records can be withheld for up to 12 years after a president leaves office. However, at the 12-year mark, those broad restrictions fall away and the once-secret presidential papers are generally subject to disclosure. For the Clinton files, that milestone came and went in January 2013.
And here we are, a year after that. The link above goes to establishment media Politico. When Hillary runs for president, watch Politico fail to remember or ever ask Clinton about this broken promise.
This broken promise isn’t likely to matter. The election will instead turn on other lies — “war on women” and so forth, and whether Hillary Clinton is indeed likable enough. Not whether she is qualified or honest.
