Politico tries to manufacture a Biden scandal around White House handling of personnel complaints

To be clear, Lander’s habits seems to have been a actual downside. But, in accordance to Politico’s personal reporting, the White House itself has achieved a world investigation, which so far has resulted in Lander issuing an apology letter.

The key level right here is that Politico’s article separated Biden’s promise a 12 months in the past from its essential context: Biden pledged to have a higher office atmosphere precisely because the Trump White House had been described by insiders as “the most toxic working environment on the planet.” (Multiple Trump staffers additionally resigned after reports of domestic violence, for which reviews still continue to surface — and of course, over two-dozen women have reported sexual assault or misconduct by President Donald Trump himself.)

Meanwhile, the outlet seems to be exhibiting surprisingly little curiosity in a story that it first broke again in 2018, and which is now attracting renewed media curiosity: Trump’s routine habit of destroying official papers, requiring work by authorities staff to salvage and tape them again collectively. Trump’s proclivity to destroy correspondence, notes, and different official paperwork after handling them wasn’t simply a quirk or oddity; it was a crime – an specific violation of the Presidential Records Act.

That story has become relevant again, now that the House choose committee investigating the January 6 rebellion is receiving taped-up papers from the National Archives, indicating that the Trump administration continued this behavior when it got here to potential proof of a conspiracy to overthrow American democracy. (And as many others are observing, this complete story further illustrates the hypocrisy of each the Trump marketing campaign and media in 2016, for the relentless protection of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server — a downside that was obvious for years.)
