Is it ever going to end?
The non-stop critique of President Trump isn’t only getting tiring, it’s leading to the pettiest criticisms one could imagine as leftists continue trying to find new angles of attack. Take, for example, the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and their latest lawsuit against President Trump.
According to the Daily Mail, CREW is suing the President over deleted tweets on his personal account, claiming they’re protected under federal retention laws. Yes, folks, this organization is actually bringing a lawsuit against a sitting President over his Twitter activity.
You seriously can’t make this sh-t up!
From the Daily Mail:
An ethics watchdog, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, filed a lawsuit against the president and his Executive Office on Thursday alleging they are not acting in compliance with federal records retention laws.
‘President Trump and others within the White House are either ignoring or outright flouting these responsibilities,’ the suit from CREW states.
‘From early on in this Administration, White House staff have used and, on information and belief, continue to use certain email messaging applications that destroy the contents of messages as soon as they are read, without regard to whether the messages are presidential records.’
It then cited Trump’s controversial Twitter account, which the suit claimed is also legally problematic due to some of the president’s posts being deleted.
‘Presidential statements made on Twitter sent from the President’s personal Twitter account, which are subject to federal record-keeping obligations, have been destroyed.
‘These actions by the Defendants, which have prevented federal agencies from complying with their statutory responsibilities, violate the constitutional requirement that the President take care that the law be faithfully executed.
‘As a further consequence, this regime increases the likelihood that valuable historical records of this presidency are already lost, and will continue to be lost, to Plaintiffs and the public, absent injunctive and declaratory relief.’
I mean, really? This is what they’re going after him for?
It’s no wonder Democrats are imploding.
And for the record, I emailed CREW to ask their position on Hillary Clinton deleting 33,000 emails from her private email server, which was used for public service and set up to flout federal record keeping laws, as well as Barack Obama moving his presidential records to his library to avoid public scrutiny. Should they actually respond, which I doubt they will, I will update this story with their comments.
