+ Tears of a Clown: “One senior Trump White House official said he and other White House staffers frequently put documents into ‘burn bags’ to be destroyed, rather than preserving them, and would decide themselves what should be saved and what should be burned. When the Jan. 6 committee asked for certain documents related to Trump’s efforts to pressure Vice President Mike Pence, for example, some of them no longer existed in this person’s files because they had already been shredded.” WaPo: He never stopped ripping things up. And, National Archives had to retrieve Trump White House records from Mar-a-Lago. (The fact that one can so easily shred and burn history is more evidence that the executive branch was not prepared for a criminal in the Oval Office.)
