    Meet the guys who tape Trump's papers back together

    Apparently Donald doesn't believe in The Presidential Records Act. Hell, he doesn't believe in any American law or institution. He's above all that, and really doesn't want you and I to know what's going on in his autocracy. This is why we don't get transcriptions about any conversation that we have a right to know about such as his summit with the supreme leader of the worst country on the planet. We may have found out that on the subject of "war games" Little Rocket Man *broke him like a boy.

    *Sorry - I've loved that phrase ever since slime ball convict Michael Grimm used it while threatening to toss a reporter off a balcony

    Solomon Lartey spent the first five months of the Trump administration working in the Old Executive Office Building, standing over a desk with scraps of paper spread out in front of him.

    Lartey, who earned an annual salary of $65,969 as a records management analyst, was a career government official with close to 30 years under his belt. But he had never seen anything like this in any previous administration he had worked for. He had never had to tape the president’s papers back together again.

    Armed with rolls of clear Scotch tape, Lartey and his colleagues would sift through large piles of shredded paper and put them back together, he said, “like a jigsaw puzzle.” Sometimes the papers would just be split down the middle, but other times they would be torn into pieces so small they looked like confetti.

    It was a painstaking process that was the result of a clash between legal requirements to preserve White House records and President Donald Trump’s odd and enduring habit of ripping up papers when he’s done with them — what some people described as his unofficial “filing system.”

    Under the Presidential Records Act, the White House must preserve all memos, letters, emails and papers that the president touches, sending them to the National Archives for safekeeping as historical records.
