The ACLU's Massachusetts chapter today sued various three-letter federal agencies to try to prove the former president is, in fact, a lying liar who lies about his alleged "declassification" of those documents.
Technically, the ACLU of Massachusetts filed a suit in US District Court in Boston under the federal Freedom of Information Act, seeking access to the "standing declassification order" the twice-impeached ex-president claims he waved around before he decamped for his presumably cleaned up Florida resort - as well as copies of any documents that were declassified as a result of that order.
Named in the suit: the director of national intelligence, the CIA, the NSA and the Department of Defense, which the ACLU says replied that they're still looking but gave no estimate for when they might have an answer. Not named: The Department of Homeland Security and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, which said they had combed their records and found no such order.
While the guy himself keeps claiming he declassified everything, his lawyers have yet to make that claim, either in the original court that allowed the FBI to raid the resort or in the other court where a judge he appointed has since given him everything he's wanted to block the use of the seized documents for now. The ACLU complaint quotes several former members of the administration on the lunacy of such an alleged order.
