The White House is going to exempt itself from a federal regulation that subjects the Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act.
The Office of Administration is in charge of archiving emails.
Transparency officials, predictably perhaps, aren’t happy about the move, which comes curiously close to the growing controversy of Hillary Clinton’s storing of four years’ worth of secretary of state emails on her private server in her New York home.
The move also comes during Sunshine Week, the time of year when news organizations typically highlight the importance of open government.
