Inquiring minds are truly stunned that Democrats have been subverting the Freedom of Information Act. In an huge story from National Review, Daniel Forster’s article is explosive:
Officials at the Treasury Department’s Office of Financial Stability contracted with a small consulting firm that has given nearly $25,000 to Democratic candidates since 2005 (and no money to Republicans) to hire “Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Analysts to support the Disclosure Services, Privacy and Treasury Records.” The firm is currently advertising a job opening for a FOIA analyst with experience in the “Use of FOIA/PA exemptions to withhold information from release to the public” (emphasis mine, and if that link goes down, The Examiner has kept a copy for its records).Read more at the Washington Examiner:
More here. This on the heels of a 388-page report from TARP inspector general Neil Barofsky that called Tim Geithner and Treasury “hopelessly out of touch” and “cynical” in their administration of TARP lending and President Obama’s mortgage modification program, eschewing “the value of transparency,” while offering “cruel. . . false hope” to homeowners and “increas[ing] moral hazard and concentration in the financial industry.”

Tim Geithner should be removed immediately. And anyone found to be involved should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. This is not the first time this administration has been to be acting illegal under the color of authority. The day after the new House is sworn in, the new leadership should begin investigations into the Geithner Treasury Department.
And the Left in this country won’t be satisfied until they install their totalitarian leader.
