Exclusive: See the Trump toilet photos that he denies ever existed – Axios
Maggie Haberman’s book, “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America,” will report that White House residence staff periodically found wads of paper clogging a toilet. They believed the former president, a notorious destroyer of Oval Office documents, was the flusher.
A former White House staffer said that he destroyed records that were supposed to be preserved under the Presidential Records Act. The law requires the White House to preserve presidential records, and the former president had a habit of doing otherwise.
Journalist Maggie Haberman shared photos of torn documents floating in toilets, which she claims to have taken during a visit to the White House. If true, the photos would provide further evidence that Donald Trump tried to destroy presidential records.
The document dumps happened multiple times at the White House, and on at least two foreign trips, according to Haberman’s sources.
The news emerged that Trump had taken multiple boxes of documents to his resort in Florida instead of submitting them for official preservation.
Mark Meadows, Trump’s last chief of staff, was also seen by Cassidy Hutchinson burning documents in a White House fireplace after a meeting with a Republican congressman. She reported this incident during the Jan 6 hearing as a witness.
