White House tasks office with taping together papers after Trump rips them up

Source: The Hill

President Trump reportedly has a habit of ripping up pieces of paper, including letters and official documents, that are required by law to be preserved, in what was described as his personal "filing system."

Former staffers handling records management for the White House told Politico that they were tasked with taping the paper scraps together to ensure that the administration did not violate legal requirements to preserve presidential records.

Solomon Lartey, who was terminated after nearly three decades of government service, told Politico that he and colleagues would use Scotch tape to put the pieces together "like a jigsaw puzzle."

1. If it's against the law to destroy Presidential papers....how

he the F'n Moron not being held responsible?
Just because some taxpayer paid people tape it back together? It's still destroying.

Look at it this way: I rob a bank but someone puts the money back. It's still a Federal offense.

VOTE or these grifters will screw us till the cows come home. Then screw them.

16. You're preaching to the choir here.

It's the borderline voters all over America we have to get to the polls in November. Even if we have to do it one at a time, it has to be done! The alternative is totally unacceptable.

19. NO it is not the "borderline" voters....

IT IS THE GOOBERS....STUPID ! !

The rethugs along with Russia and other "dictator" influence and direction
went after the the Electoral College districts with a collective IQ less than room temperature.

I spent the last half of my life working with GIS Mapping and can tell you that ALL DATA
is now mapped for analysis and swaying perception.

Here is my example:
On monday morning law enforcement meet for what happened over the weekend, last week and prepare for the current week.
It is noted a rash of vehicle and home burglaries.
So the map is shaded "red" showing the hot spots to target this will, even do to say hourly time frames.
This is sent to all officers for reference to use when the "have nothing" to do to put a presence in the area.
This will require having overlapping shifts and that means overtime funding.
BUT.....

When you go to the city council, county courthouse, etc and hand them a printed spreadsheet it goes in the
closest trash can out the door.
If you use the RED MAP, well red is translated to deficit and over budget resulting in no money.
BUT...

So change the map to GREEN. That means money and you also overlay the target areas with the political areas.
Now that map is burnt in the brain of the politician as they realize "THAT IS MY DISTRICT" and if I don't solve this
I will not get re-elected.
CONCLUSION.....

Same data with different colors and you get what you need otherwise you wasted a bunch of resources.

So I can not say exactly what to present to the "goober" districts but I will guarantee this.....
They understand COLORS.

Vote Them Out 2018.

20. Thanks for calling me "stupid".

It's always refreshing to meet a snarky know it all. With 122 posts under your belt you certainly make a good impression!

4. There's more of that leaked top secret info.

Also know as anything printed that makes Trump look like an asshole.

Hate to tell him it's no secret.

5. What annoys me most

is that he has no regard for anything HE feels doesn't apply to him. Don't like it? Ignore or flaunt. Does he not get that, once again, this is illegal? He's in that job doing whatever the hell he wants to and the law and the American people be damned.

We can't get him removed soon enough. He's a time bomb.

18. Impeach? Yes!

But, BUT, the cowardly and complicit republicans in the Senate will never, ever vote to throw him out of office. They are as guilty as trump of all the things trump has done against this country and its citizens.

9. As pitiful and contemptuous as this behavior is, it is totally fitting

that his historical record will be replete with physical evidence of his ridiculous behavior borne of insecurity and immaturity.

11. This, and he must stay in our history books

so that his contemptuous actions and reign aren't repeated in decades to come. Of course, his greatest punishment will be for him to go into the record books as the worst example of an American president. But Ohhhhhhhhh would I love to be able to rip up any mention of him in any medium, anywhere, ever, with as little regard for him as he has for the office he holds.

My hope for him is that his reputation and standing are so completely ruined that he will never have any modicum of success again. His ego will not be able to stand that. I wish the same to his
three oldest children also.

13. That's what he and the equally racist GOP did to Pres. Obama

In the first year they systematically undid everything they could even if it didn't really run counter to their ideals. They wanted to erase every trace that he'd ever been President.

10. Last week a guy who works for the FBi or CIA or NSA

said that they have people who put together the papers that were shredded by Cohen and that they are pretty good at doing it fairly quickly. Can't they sen the trash from the Oval Office to the same people. I bet there are all kinds of incriminating goodies in there. Stormy's attorney Avenatti said the moron and his pals would be wise to invest in a high quality shredder which shreds horizontally (harder to piece together).

17. That just demonstrates....

Trump's total lack of impulse control. And this is the guy 40% of Americans want with the nuclear launch codes?

It appears many Americans lack any sense of judgement whatsoever.

23. Trump has never had...

respect for any rule or law. He's always felt above all rules and laws, because he's........."The Donald"! His daddy taught him that he was above everything and everyone else. This entire family is as criminal as any other family in U.S. history, including the Manson family.

Sometimes I don't know how I can put up with this orange jackass any longer. I feel like I'm at my wit's end. Then I have to take a week off or so, stay away from D.U. newspapers, MSNBC....everything. Go play with the grandchildren, take a few long walks in the woods, just pretend there is no Donald J. Trump, no Trumptards, no Republicans at all. It's time to do that right now.
