And now the Red Hats are threatening the National Archives, you know, where their much beloved Constitution is kept:
In the nearly three weeks since the FBI searched former president Donald Trump’s Florida home to recover classified documents, the National Archives and Records Administration has become the target of a rash of threats and vitriol, according to people familiar with the situation. Civil servants tasked by law with preserving and securing the U.S. government’s records were rattled.
On Wednesday, the agency’s head sent an email to the staff. Though academic and suffuse with legal references, the message from acting archivist Debra Steidel Wall was simple: Stay above the fray and stick to the mission.
“NARA has received messages from the public accusing us of corruption and conspiring against the former President, or congratulating NARA for ‘bringing him down,’ ” Steidel Wall wrote in the agencywide message, which was obtained by The Washington Post. “Neither is accurate or welcome.”
The boneheads are so enthralled with Dear Leader that they are essentially threatening a museum.
UPDATE 1 from Politico’s email thingie:
The former president tapped partisan allies to negotiate with the Archives, rather than the usual apolitical representatives — “yet another norm that Trump broke,” they write. And the Archives is now grappling with the security fallout: On Friday, after Trump made false claims about BARACK OBAMA’s records, local police had to increase security at an Archives outpost in Illinois.
