State Department: White House gift records for Trump, Pence missing
The department says the Executive Office of the President did not submit information about gifts received by Trump and his family from foreign leaders in 2020.
The State Department says it is unable to compile a complete and accurate accounting of gifts presented to former President Donald Trump and other U.S. officials by foreign governments during Trump’s final year in office, citing missing data from the White House.
The State Department report comes as House lawmakers have opened an investigation into reports that Trump had taken boxes of classified materials with him to his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida after leaving office last year. The National Archives and Records Administration has asked the Justice Department to look into the matter.
The House panel investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol, meanwhile, has identified an almost 8-hour gap in official White House records of Trump’s phone calls as the violence unfolded and his supporters stormed the building, according to two people familiar with the probe.
Coincidences! Always, "coincidences"!
Please pardon some of us that believe these 'coincidences' strain the bounds of credulity!
I see only four possibilities:
1] Gross Incompetence
2] Gross Negligence
3] Willful Negligence
4] Overt Subterfuge
None of these are good . . .
