Trump has shredded documents, deleted e-mails in defiance of court orders for decades

Post by Ben Reilly on Tue Nov 01, 2016 1:11 am

Over the course of decades, Donald Trump’s companies have systematically destroyed or hidden thousands of emails, digital records and paper documents demanded in official proceedings, often in defiance of court orders. These tactics—exposed by a Newsweek review of thousands of pages of court filings, judicial orders and affidavits from an array of court cases—have enraged judges, prosecutors, opposing lawyers and the many ordinary citizens entangled in litigation with Trump. In each instance, Trump and entities he controlled also erected numerous hurdles that made lawsuits drag on for years, forcing courtroom opponents to spend huge sums of money in legal fees as they struggled—sometimes in vain—to obtain records.

This behavior is of particular import given Trump’s frequent condemnations of Hillary Clinton, his Democratic opponent, for having deleted more than 30,000 emails from a server she used during her time as secretary of state. While Clinton and her lawyers have said all of those emails were personal, Trump has suggested repeatedly on the campaign trail that they were government documents Clinton was trying to hide and that destroying them constituted a crime. The allegation—which the FBI concluded was not supported by any evidence—is a crowd-pleaser at Trump rallies, often greeted by supporters chanting, “Lock her up!”

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.

Nothing in her e-mails has proven her to have broken the law, and she has a lot of good qualities that seem to go completely overlooked -- as in, sane, forward-looking policies and more qualifications for the job than any other president has ever had. And she happens to be running in opposition to someone who could do serious global damage.

As it's just eight day before the election, we can't rip it up and start over. And in the U.S., only a tiny minority vote for third parties for the simple reason that the two major parties have become so good at cornering public support on one side or another of any given issue that people care about.

I don't know why it is that Americans who hate blacks also want a "strong military" and think global warming is a Chinese hoax, and Americans who aren't bigots also want to protect the environment and increase spending on the poor, but somehow, the Republicans and Democrats figured out that this is generally the case and strategized accordingly.

Maybe it's just because reason can't defeat culture, but America is a two-party country for the foreseeable future.

It is never going to get better if no one tries to make it better
and neither party are
and neither of you are trying to either.

Follow the same old lies cause hell it's too hard to try and change


As a previously 2 party nation that now has a parliment controlled by crosses benches (i.e 3rd party or independant)
your assertions are Simply Untrue Quill
just the lies of those that either support the current shit or too lazy to want to try and change.

yes...
your going off the the cliff this time either way
Next time you'll have an option.

No election will ever be good for it
Alternative arise out of elections like this

No one wanted Gillard/Rudd or Abbott
thus the rise of the 3rd parties and Independants that has been sustained through 2 more elections.

anyone enough states go purple (neither red nor blue) and neither can claim.
we had minority govt under gillard
