Eichenwald: Trump's Companies Destroyed Emails in Defiance of Court Orders

DONALD TRUMP'S COMPANIES DESTROYED EMAILS IN DEFIANCE OF COURT ORDERS

Donald Trump has a long, troubling history of destroying and hiding important documents in lawsuits, but he thinks Hillary Clinton’s the one who should be going to jail.

Finally, under subpoena, Trump appeared for a short deposition. When asked about the missing documents, he made a shocking admission: The Trumps had been destroying their corporate records for the previous six months and had no document-retention program. They had conducted no inspections to determine which files might have been sought in the discovery requests or might otherwise be related to the case. Instead, in order to “save space,” Trump testified, officials with his company had been tossing documents into the shredder and garbage.

1. Cover Story! Donald Trump's Companies Destroyed Emails in Defiance of Court Orders

Donald Trump has a long, troubling history of destroying and hiding important documents in lawsuits, but he thinks Hillary Clinton’s the one who should be going to jail.

http://www.newsweek.com/2016/11/11/donald-trump-companies-destroyed-emails-documents-515120.html

Trump’s use of deception and untruthful affidavits, as well as the hiding or improper destruction of documents, dates back to at least 1973, when the Republican nominee, his father and their real estate company battled the federal government over civil charges that they refused to rent apartments to African-Americans. The Trump strategy was simple: deny, impede and delay, while destroying documents the court had ordered them to hand over

trump's a ****** from way back.

Mahalo, Madam45! I already posted this on another thread 'cause I saw it first but I want to reply to yours, too!

4. it is up to dems to MAKE them cover this

dems need to be bombarding social media right now demanding networks give fair coverage on deleted email and documents stories.

dem strategists and other talkers need to bring this up whenever they're brought on as guests to talk about the email story. cover trump and all of his surrogates in it, make them defend it and defend his actions, keep pressing them on it. cast all sorts of inuendo about what might've been on trumps business emails (massive debt reports? mafia connections? russia connections?) force them to play defense, make trump out to be a huge hypocrite, slop him, slime him, do whatever it takes to make this at the very least a net neutral story for us and keep this fool trump out the damn white house.

8. I doubt it will make much of a difference.

I read the whole thing. His supporters will just use it as evidence of his, "smart business" and, "sticking it to the government".

It plays right into the infuriating double standard Trump is held to.
