I was White House Staff Sec’y. Every document that goes to POTUS is literally stamped “The President Has Seen” and a record is kept. So, let the briefing docs testify. https://t.co/NBzHlVCGgx— Sean Patrick Maloney (@RepSeanMaloney) June 29, 2020
About how he regularly tore up and crumpled paper reports after he had read them. Apparently it was a practice he developed in business, at the urging of Roy Cohn: never leave a paper trail.
The story was the White House had hired someone simply to collect the scraps and tape the pieces of paper back together. Word came later that, because of that story, that person had been fired.
So has someone been preserving the Presidential record since then? Because Trump is clearly a creature of habits he's not going to start breaking now.
Inquiring minds want to know.
