Under 18 U.S.C. § 2071, individuals who willfully remove or destroy records “filed or deposited” in “any public office” --- or who attempt to do so --- may be subject to fines or up to three years of imprisonment if they deprive the government use of those documents (United States v. Rosner, 352 F.

Does anybody need reminding that Trump and Republicans like Jim Jordan howled that Hillary Clinton's mishandling of emails in violation the Official Records Act was the crime of the century?


As first reported by The Washington Post, the documents retrieved last month from the Florida property contained important records of communication along with Trump's self-described "love letters" with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, as well as a letter addressed to Trump from his predecessor, former President Barack Obama.

According to the newspaper, keeping the boxes of records at Mar-a-Lago violated the Presidential Records Act — which requires that the government keep all forms of documents and communications related to a president's or vice president's official duties.



(CBS News)Washington — Some of the documents from former President Donald Trump's White House that were turned over to the National Archives and Records Administration were torn up by the former president and had been pieced back together, the agency said.

The Archives confirmed in a statement Trump's habit of tearing up records, citing press reports from 2018 that detailed his practice. The Archives said "White House records management officials during the Trump Administration recovered and taped together some of the torn-up records. These were turned over to the National Archives at the end of the Trump Administration, along with a number of torn-up records that had not been reconstructed by the White House."

    Curt,

    

I don’t know if you follow her, but Teri Kanefield who is another one of my favorites along with my neighbor Heather Cox Richardson, has an excellent read on this very question! 

Check it out. I think you’ll find it thought provoking.

    Curt,

    Your sources here all have Stage 4 TDS: WaPo, NPR, CBS. I don't trust this reporting entirely.

    And, in spite of all her crimes, Hillary still ain't a jailbird.

    HtS,
    Hillary's emails were a constant theme of candidate Trump's rallies. The chorus was "lock her up!" The final result of the Benghazi committee, FBI, DOJ and State Department investigations was "no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information". The case against her was dropped.

    It's more than hypocritical given Trump's outrage at Hillary's non-preservation of emails that he'd be so slipshod, destructive and evasive with his presidential documents that should have been archived.

    Maybe you don't believe CBS, WaPo, NPR, etc. But I would think that you'd believe the National Archives or Donald Trump himself. Despite numerous reports either has denied that boxes of Trump's presidential documents had to be retrieved from Mar-a-lago or that many documents had be taped back together after they were ripped up.
