Bill Clinton blocks pardons document release
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, March 06, 2008

Not that his refusal to do so should come as any surprise to anyone who has paid even passing attention to the Clintons over the years:
Federal archivists at the Clinton Presidential Library are blocking the release of hundreds of pages of White House papers on pardons that the former president approved, including clemency for fugitive commodities trader Marc Rich.

That archivists' decision, based on guidance provided by Bill Clinton that restricts the disclosure of advice he received from aides, prevents public scrutiny of documents that would shed light on how he decided which pardons to approve from among hundreds of requests.

Clinton's legal agent declined the option of reviewing and releasing the documents that were withheld, said the archivists, who work for the federal government, not the Clintons.

The decision to withhold much of the requested material could provide fodder for critics who say that the former president and his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, now seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, have been unwilling to fully release documents to public scrutiny.
Ya think!?!

Of course we're still waiting on John Kerry to release his military records from the last presidential election. Does this qualify as a trend?

That works to Obama’s advantage; lack of experience is an advantage on the left, it seems.

I must have missed it - is "W" running again?
