As Donald Trump entered the White House as a political newcomer in 2016 it’s assumed that, along with an ironclad strategy to makeover America, he brought with him the work habits which resulted in massive business success — that includes transactional note taking.
The Trump White House could have never predicted their every move would later be part of multiple investigations launched by Democrats and Deep State actors who feared for their futures as the Former President drained the swamp.
Upon leaving the White House, Trump apparently took with him person affects: letters from former President Obama, letters from foreign leaders, notes from staff about policy, etc. Now the Biden administration is demanding those personal letters be returned — and they went to Florida to get them.
The National Archives and Records Administration retrieved multiple boxes from Former President Donald Trump’s Florida residence after they claim records were improperly moved from the White House to Mar-a-Lago.
The Presidential Records Act requires the preservation of memos, letters, notes, emails, faxes and other written communications related to a president’s official duties.
Meanwhile. all recent administrations have had some Presidential Records Act violations but mainstream media liberals are acting as if Trump has something to hide. White House documents from past administrations have been retrieved by the Archives after a president left office. Most violations involved the use of unofficial email and telephone accounts.
Trump advisers deny the boxes were removed with evil intent. They said the cartons contained mementos, gifts, letters from world leaders and other correspondence.
“I don’t think he did this out of malicious intent to avoid complying with the Presidential Records Act,” one former Trump White House official told the Post. “As long as he’s been in business, he’s been very transactional and it was probably his longtime practice and I don’t think his habits changed when he got to the White House.”
The National Archives received some documents taped back together or still in pieces from Trump.
However, it appears the National Archieves isn’t the only agency getting their grubby paws on Trump’s papers. Among the documents retrieved from Mar-a-Lago, Nancy Pelosi’s House Select Committee investigating the events surrounding Jan. 6, 2021 received a few boxes as well.
Democrats have no shot at convicting Trump of any legal crime pertaining to his presidential records, though it’s likely they’ll try.
Although the law requires presidents to preserve records related to an administration’s activities, The Presidential Records Act operates on the basis of a “gentlemen’s agreement,” one Archives said.
The witch hunt continues!
