Donald Trump Denies Flushing Important Papers, Illegally Removing Items From White House

A long list of witnesses, including White House aides and official sources, all allege that the former president handled documents in ways that are not compliant with the Presidential Records Act. Donald Trump, unsurprisingly denies it.

Years ago Trump’s staff shared that he was shredding documents, a story that is now backed up by the news that some papers requested by the January 6th Committee were received from the National Archives as pieces held together by tape. In fact, a former aide says she once caught him chewing and swallowing a note after a meeting with his attorney. Then it was revealed that the National Archives was requesting the former president return boxes of documents he’d taken to Mar-A-Lago.

Now in the latest revalation, reporter Maggie Haberman says that White House toilets would occasionally become clogged with papers that had apparently been flushed.

Trump followed this quickly with a statement, insisting that he had every right to remove the documents, and had no legal obligation to return them. He also denied ever flushing any papers.

He did not address allegations that he shredded or ate documents, whether as a matter of habit, out of anger, or in order to conceal the contents.

Instead, he pointed fingers at Bill Clinton and at the current administration, hinting at unspecified wrongdoings by President Joe Biden and his team, and declared that his vague accusations are evidence of a double standard, and that he and other Republicans are treated unfairly.
