News Dump

Thanks a lot, Axios morning email thingie, for this mental image:

1 big thing: 🚽 Trump’s toilet dump

While President Trump was in office, staff in the White House residence periodically discovered wads of printed paper clogging a toilet — and believed the president had flushed pieces of paper, Maggie Haberman scoops in her forthcoming book, “Confidence Man.”

  • Why it matters: The revelation by Haberman, whose coverage as a New York Times White House correspondent was followed obsessively by Trump, adds a vivid new dimension to his lapses in preserving government documents. Axios was provided an exclusive first look at some of her reporting…

Zoom out: The news of White House toilet-flushing comes as the National Archives has reportedly asked the Biden Justice Department to examine Trump’s handling of White House records, amid the congressional investigation into the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol.

Well, that explains Lord Damp Nut’s fixation on plumbing standards. #CrapperGate is, I hope, the hashtag.

    Lapses? Can you say “destroying the evidence?”

    I knew you could.

    Can we please start applying the Son of Sam laws to these accessories after the fact ‘journalists and aides who hold back the evidence of criminality for their books so they can profit by it?

      MAGA Haberman has been one of the worst offenders, going at least as far back as “BUT HER EMAILS!!1!” Calling her a journalist is an egregious insult to actual journalists.

    Another missing charge and prosecution for TFG. Is there an actual number of crimes at which he will become prosecutable, or some more random limit? I am beginning to remember the phrase Teflon concerning him.
    How many more laws must he break before we can call him a criminal officially and prosecute him?
    This is getting silly at this point, I “almost” begin to think the laws don’t apply to him and that couldn’t be, could it?

    There are also missing phone log entries from January 6th. There was allegedly a lot of phone swapping going on, possible to keep the fingerprints spread out and off the record.

    Past references to TFG wiping his ass with the Constitution don’t seem so hyperbolic now.

    Seems so long ago, I remember the GQP’s outrage over Pelosi tearing up her copy of TFG’s speech;

    I guess nobody had told her she was only supposed to do that sort of thing privately in the restroom.
