UPDATE

Former President Trump just emailed out a statement in response to allegations that he clogged a White House toilet with documents:

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

Following collaborative and respectful discussions, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) openly and willingly arranged with President Trump for the transport of boxes that contained letters, records, newspapers, magazines, and various articles. Some of this information will someday be displayed in the Donald J. Trump Presidential Library for the public to view my Administration’s incredible accomplishments for the American People.

The media’s characterization of my relationship with NARA is Fake News. It was exactly the opposite! It was a great honor to work with NARA to help formally preserve the Trump Legacy.

The papers were given easily and without conflict and on a very friendly basis, which is different from the accounts being drawn up by the Fake News Media. In fact, it was viewed as routine and “no big deal.” In actuality, I have been told I was under no obligation to give this material based on various legal rulings that have been made over the years. Crooked Hillary Clinton, as an example, deleted and acid washed 32,000 emails and never gave that to the government. Then, they took large amounts of furniture out of the White House. And Bill Clinton kept numerous audio recordings that the archives wanted, but were unsuccessful at getting after going to court. We won’t even mention what is going on with the White House in the current, or various past administrations.

Also, another fake story, that I flushed papers and documents down a White House toilet, is categorically untrue and simply made up by a reporter in order to get publicity for a mostly fictitious book. The Democrats are just using this and the Unselect Committee of political hacks as a camoflauge for how horribly our Country is doing under the Biden Administration.

In the United States there has unfortunately become two legal standards, one for Republicans and one for Democrats. It should not be that way!

ORIGINAL POST

The NYT’s Maggie Haberman has a new book out on Donald Trump titled, “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America”. . .

. . . and here’s the cover:

She says the book “takes a long look at the arc of his life, from the world that made him in New York City to the world he tried to recreate in the White House “:

The first “scoop” from the book is this anecdote accusing the former president of clogging the White House toilet with documents he’d “ripped into pieces”:

Three sirens for this? Really:

Wow. You got him, now.
