I am asking myself if a corrupt, lawless Administration might destroy critical documents prior to a GOP takeover of Congress and an enhanced ability to hold politicians and bureaucrats accountable for their past actions?
As we have seen, Hillary Clinton’s top aids have been accused of purging documents on Benghazi prior to a document turnover to the ARB (Accountability Review Board) that was so incompetent as to never interview Hillary Clinton herself about her actions relating to Benghazi, the video story, and the alleged cover-up.
Now we are seeing that the Department of Homeland Defense is preparing to destroy a large number of documents that should be preserved and vetted by the personnel at the National Archives. Considering that the DHS and other government agencies are under scrutiny for a multiplicity of scandals involving the White House, the timing of this effort is suspicious. Especially if the destruction will give rise to the “accidental” destruction of “other” records that were not supposed to be purged.

The Department of Homeland Security is poised to ditch all records from a controversial network monitoring system called Einstein that are at least three years old, but not for security reasons.
DHS reasons the files -- which include data about traffic to government websites, agency network intrusions and general vulnerabilities -- have no research significance.
But some security experts say, to the contrary, DHS would be deleting a treasure chest of historical threat data. And privacy experts, who wish the metadata wasn’t collected at all, say destroying it could eliminate evidence that the government-wide surveillance system does not perform as intended.
The National Archives and Records Administration has tentatively approved the disposal plan, pending a public comment period.
Bottom line …
As we have seen in the past few years, the Obama Administration plays fast and loose with documents – especially those that were legally subpoenaed by Congressional oversight committees. It is prima facie evidence of wrongdoing that documents were not provided to Congress, but were provided to the Courts. Add President Obama’s false claim of “Presidential Privilege” and you see a pattern of document handling that is highly suspicious. Not that the prominent progressive socialist democrats have not been caught red-handed stealing classified documents and stuffing them in their underwear.
