An interview with Jason Leopold, Senior Investigative Reporter with Vice News.
As Jason reported in a recent article for Vice News, It Took a FOIA Lawsuit to Uncover How the Obama Administration Killed FOIA Reform:
The Obama administration has long called itself the most transparent administration in history. But newly released Department of Justice (DOJ) documents show that the White House has actually worked aggressively behind the scenes to scuttle congressional reforms designed to give the public better access to information possessed by the federal government.
We discuss Obama’s transparency legacy, the Clinton emails and the CIA’s Office of Public Affairs (OPA) created to help “producers, screenwriters, directors, and authors “gain a better understanding of [CIA’s] intelligence mission.”
Say no more.
