The establishment media is now insisting that Barack Hussein Obama did not keep classified documents and take them with him after he left the White House.
The Gateway Pundit can now confirm that this is a blatant lie. There were documents Obama had in his possession when he left the White House.
President Trump shared on Friday that:
President Barack Hussein Obama kept 33 million pages of documents, much of them classified. How many of them pertained to nuclear? Word is, lots!”
The corrupt media pounced on this. Many fake news outlets claimed that Obama did nothing wrong. This is very much unlikely knowing how horribly corrupt Obama is and was.
Also, this wasn’t what President Trump said.

The far-left AP pushed more liberal talking points and shared the following. As if they have any right to fact-check anything.
CLAIM: Former President Barack Obama took 30 million documents, many of them classified, to Chicago upon leaving the White House.
AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. Obama administration records are exclusively held and maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration, the federal agency confirmed on Friday. Millions of unclassified documents were transferred after Obama left office to a NARA facility in Chicago, but neither Obama’s personal foundation nor the facility set to house his presidential memorabilia have control over those papers.
The AP misstated President Trump’s claim. The President didn’t say that Obama “took” documents, he shared Obama “kept” documents and many of them were classified.
They also didn’t address whether the documents Obama kept pertained to nuclear. It again appears that the corrupt Obama gang and the left-leaning media are projecting onto President Trump some corrupt action by Democrat politicians in DC.
Like the Russia collusion garbage that was used against President Trump, Hillary made millions from Russia on Uranium One alone.
Like hookers peeing on beds in the now totally debunked Steele dossier that was paid for and created by Hillary’s goons, the person taped with hookers and drugs around the world was Hunter Biden.
Instances like this never stop.
We know Obama kept classified documents when he left the White House because the NSC wouldn’t fulfill a request to turn over Susan Rice’s unmasking documents that were moved to Obama’s library.
The fact that they could not be easily obtained indicates they were classified.
The fact they were moved to Obama’s “library” and based on the above, indicates that the National Archives withheld information under their control during the Trump years which was likely a crime!
We also know that Obama refused to keep hard copies in his library – everything was to be digitized. Also, no archivists were there to oversee the digitization of Obama’s documents while he was President. So there is no way to tell whether Obama didn’t have classified documents in the materials he took with him after his corrupt presidency.
We also know that at that time The New York Times reported that the National Archives is not overseeing Obama’s library. The Times published the following:
And the entire complex, including the museum chronicling Mr. Obama’s presidency, will be run by the foundation, a private nonprofit entity, rather than by the National Archives and Records Administration, the federal agency that administers the libraries and museums for all presidents going back to Herbert Hoover.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported this back in 2019.
So if the National Archives oversaw Obama’s library documents like they now claim, then they likely committed a crime in not providing them when subpoenaed in the past.
If they didn’t oversee Obama’s documents like the New York Times reported in 2019, then they are lying.
Which is it? And can anyone make a claim that Obama’s documents in his library do not contain classified information without looking at the documents themselves which likely no one has ever done?
