Hillary Clinton's Latest Jab At Donald Trump Has Fans In Hysterics

Hillary Clinton is back in the news serving up another dish of shade at former President Donald Trump.

News broke this week that New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman has a book coming out that tells exactly what happened to many documents before Trump left the White House. According to The Washington Post, the book reports that "staff in the upstairs residence repeatedly found one of the toilets clogged with wads of printed paper." Those papers were government property, which is illegal to destroy, according to the Presidential Records Act. This requires "the preservation of memos, letters, notes, emails, faxes and other written communications related to a president's official duties," per The Washington Post.

According to a separate piece by The Washington Post, the fact that Trump destroyed documents isn't a surprise. The former president "had a habit of ripping up papers by hand when he was finished with them — despite having been repeatedly warned ... federal law required all those materials be preserved." It was as early as 2018 when Politico reported aides having to piece together ripped documents after fishing the scraps out of the garbage.

There has been further proof of the former administration's attempt to destroy documents. Last month, The National Archives sent the congressional January 6 committee over 700 documents, many of which were reported to be either torn up and reconstructed, or not reconstructed at all per The Washington Post.

This is why Hillary Clinton's latest shade at Donald Trump is so hilarious

Additionally, according to CNN, documents that should have been turned over to The Archives ended up in Mar-a-Lago at former president Donald Trump's personal residence. The revelations sound similar to a 2016 scandal, one Trump frequently called "the biggest political scandal since Watergate."

In 2016, right before the election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, it came to light that Clinton had been using a private e-mail server rather than a government one when she was Secretary of State under former President Barack Obama. As BBC explains, the secretary would've been the "sole arbiter of what should and shouldn't be provided to the government, made public via freedom of information requests, or turned over to interested parties, such as the congressional committee investigating the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi." FBI investigations into the matter, however, found that while Clinton was "careless," she didn't "mishandle classified documents," per CNN.

Now the tables have turned and Clinton jumped on the opportunity to poke fun at her political rival. Clinton took to Twitter this week, promoting new merchandise from her company, OnwardTogether.org. The tweet shows Clinton wearing a black hat that reads, "But her emails." The now sold-out hat referred to the viral meme that might've been the only funny thing to come out of the 2016 presidential election.
