“Most Transparent” White House Ever Unilaterally Rewrote FOIA To Suppress Political Documents That Make The Regime Look Bad…
Wow this shit won't stop, OMG. The rewrite came in an April 15, 2009, memo from then-White House Counsel Greg Craig instructing the executive branch to let White House officials review any documents sought by FOIA requestors that involved “White House equities.”

That phrase is nowhere to be found in the FOIA, yet the Obama White House effectively amended the law to create a new exception to justify keeping public documents locked away from the public.
