The US national archives - the supposed official record and repository of the nation - is now blurring and censoring historic moments? erasing/editing history to appease the powerful or placate the easily offended. History is what it is.

ACLU Deputy Legal Director Louise Melling responds to National Archives: “Apologizing is not enough. The National Archives must explain to the public why it even took the Orwellian step of trying to rewrite history and erasing women’s bodies from it, as well as who ordered it."

The National Archives is supposed to capture history, not erase it. Any one who was a part of this should see their job become history.

IMPORTANT: A Republican lawyer representing Steve Bannon, Don McGahn, Reince Priebus in the Russia probe and Judge Alex Kozinski on harassment allegations is deciding which of Brett Kavanaugh's records are turned over. This has NEVER been done. This is the National Archives' job.

The Presidential Records Act makes clear that White House records, including Brett Kavanaugh's, belong to the American people. Now, the National Archives is refusing to provide those records to Democrats so we can vet his nomination. This has NEVER happened. #ReleaseTheRecords 

Since Republicans have chosen secrecy over transparency, Democrats issued a FOIA request to the National Archives, seeking the full gamut of Kavanaugh’s records, including from his time as Staff Secretary. We stand ready to sue the Archives for his full records, if necessary.

The National Archives can't release Brett Kavanaugh's full record until late October, but Mitch McConnell wants to hold a vote on the Supreme Court nominee by October 1st. Add your name if you believe the American public deserves to see Kavanaugh's FULL RECORD.

Brett Kavanaugh’s deputy from the White House is deciding what documents are turned over to the Senate. This person does NOT work for the nonpartisan National Archives or the Bush Library. He works for President Bush in a personal capacity. This is unprecedented & unacceptable.

BREAKING: The National Archives won't complete its production of even the limited number of Brett Kavanaugh's records Republicans requested until OCTOBER. Republicans are trying to hide Kavanaugh's record from the American people by rushing his nomination. #ReleaseTheRecords
