Hillary Clinton dragged former President Donald Trump amid reports of his document flushing with the perfect new fashion accessory, highlighting the latest merchandise being offered by her nonprofit Onward Together.
A limited edition hat is available via the nonprofit's store now, noted Clinton, who said the merchandise is here "Just in time for Galentine's Day" and reports that Trump "was flushing documents down White House toilets."
Clinton's remarks come amid reports that while in office, Trump regularly tore up documents and memos after reading them and even flushed some of them down the toilet.
Those reports were preceded by news that The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) had to retrieve White House record boxes containing important communication records, gifts, and letters from world leaders, from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
A source who spoke to The Washington Post said that the transfer to Mar-a-Lago was “out of the ordinary … NARA has never had that kind of volume transfer after the fact like this.”
The Washington Post noted that the recovery of materials have “raised new concerns” about adherence to the Presidential Records Act, legislation governing the official records of Presidents and Vice Presidents created or received after January 20, 1981, and mandating the preservation of all presidential records.
Trump’s advisers have denied that there was any “nefarious intent.” The National Archives declined to comment at the time but has since asked the Department of Justice to investigate Trump's handling of White House records.
The irony, of course, is that Trump regularly accused Clinton of mishandling classified information, so her shady fashion accessory was very well received by her supporters.
Clinton has also often faced calls to "lock her up" since the 2016 general election.
In July 2016, Trump, then a presidential candidate, invited Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's emails, asking the Kremlin to find "the 30,000 emails that are missing" from the personal server she used during her tenure as Secretary of State.
Trump's remarks shocked the Clinton campaign–to say nothing of the world–and many perceived them as a potential threat to national security. Trump, as he does with most criticism, shrugged off these concerns. He made the request of the Russians on July 27, 2016.
And on that same day, according to an indictment that the Justice Department released in July 2018, the Russians took Trump up on his request.
The indictment details that "on or about July 27, 2016, the Conspirators attempted after hours to spearphish for the first time email accounts at a domain hosted by a third-party provider and used by Clinton's personal office."
The news prompted political commentators and members of the media to call out their colleagues for spending so much time focusing on the stories about Clinton's emails rather than the specter of Russian collusion that lingered over the country even before the 2016 presidential election was in full swing.
