Jared Kushner warned to preserve government records

https://www.citizensforethics.org/legal-action/legal-complaints/jared-kushner-warned-to-preserve-government-records/

White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner’s routine use of non-secure, non-official messaging applications to discuss official government business could violate the law, according to a letter sent to Kushner today by CREW warning him of his legal obligations to maintain and preserve presidential records, including his discussions of official government business using non-official messaging applications. Kushner is required to preserve those records under the Presidential Records Act, and the willful destruction or concealment of federal records is a federal crime.

The PRA requires the president and his staff to document, preserve and maintain records of “the activities, deliberations, decisions, and policies that reflect the performance of the president’s constitutional, statutory, or other official or ceremonial duties.” In 2017, the White House Counsel issued two memos reminding all White House personnel of their obligation to preserve and maintain official government records. The memos explicitly forbid the use of non-official messaging accounts for official business without prior authorization, and warned that willfully destroying or concealing federal records is a crime.

1. The problem with these psychopaths is that they believe

they are above the law. I seriously hope they are stopped dead in their tracks by their criminality.

5. Some never did get around to understanding that sternly worded

letters don't work with this cabal.

7. A letter documents that a legal request was made.

It's for evidence when he is finally charged.

6. Jared Kushner might actually go to prison

Given that it is a neo-nazi cabal, Trump probably protected Don Jr., Ivanka etc....Kushner is probably the fall guy.
