Trump was accused of destroying email evidence in lawsuit 10 years ago

This will be fun to watch http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2016/06/13/trump-accused-destroying-email-evidence-lawsuit-10-years-ago-republican-hillary-president/85795082/

In 2006, when a judge ordered Donald Trump's casino operation to hand over several years' worth of emails, the answer surprised him: The Trump Organization routinely erased emails and had no records from 1996 to 2001. The defendants in a case that Trump brought said this amounted to destruction of evidence, a charge never resolved.

At that time, a Trump IT director testified that until 2001, executives in Trump Tower relied on personal email accounts using dial-up Internet services, despite the fact that Trump had launched a high-speed Internet provider in 1998 and announced he would wire his whole building with it. Another said Trump had no routine process for preserving emails before 2005.

Judge Jeffrey Streitfeld was stunned. “He has a house up in Palm Beach County listed for $125 million, but he doesn’t keep emails. That’s a tough one,” he said, according to transcripts obtained by USA TODAY. “If somebody starts to put forth as a fact something that doesn’t make any sense to me and causes me to have a concern about their credibility in the discovery process, that's not a good direction to go, and I am really having a hard time with this.”

Now, a decade later, Trump regularly hammers Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, for using her own email server while she was secretary of State and deleting emails from that server that she deemed to be private. In a war of tweets with Clinton a week ago, Trump wrote, “And where are your 33,000 emails that you deleted?” On the CBS News program Face the Nationearlier this month, Trump said, "What she did is a criminal situation. She wasn't supposed to do that with the server and the emails."

1. Trump’s Personal Assistant (christie) Deleted Potentially Incriminating Emails, Lawyers Say

Trump's potential VP, Chris Christie, is also good at deleting e-mails http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2016/06/14/chris_christie_deleted_bridgegate_material_other_officials_attorneys_allege.html

An unpaid personal assistant/manservant who works for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has deleted or failed to turn over potentially self-incriminating emails and text messages related to a criminal case, lawyers for defendants in the case say.

The accusation is particularly ironic given the attacks that Trump has made on presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for deleting emails that she sent and received while she was secretary of state.

The assistant/beleaguered henchman, current New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, is suspected by some of having conspired to create massive traffic jams in the city of Fort Lee in order to retaliate against its mayor for not endorsing him during a re-election campaign. Attorneys for two former Christie associates who are being prosecuted in the case say the governor/errand boy is, in effect, trying to make their clients the fall guys for his own actions. WNYC reports that these attorneys have filed briefs critical of Christie for failing to produce evidence relevant to the case:

Gov. Chris Christie's cell phone, text messages and emails from three separate accounts are missing or have been destroyed, Bridgegate defendants allege in a pair of explosive briefs filed late Monday in federal court in New Jersey ... "President Nixon’s tapes were not immune from a subpoena," wrote Michael Baldassare, the attorney for defendant Bill Baroni, in his brief. "Neither is Governor Christie’s phone."

5. I wonder why reporters don't ask Trump about his deleted e-mails. He's a hypocrite to be constantly

bringing up Hillary's.

7. So, he's a terrible person for it and it should disqualify him from the presidency, right?

I agree. Anyone accused of destroying emails like a lying piece of shit should never be allowed to be president. Guess your voting for Bernie, huh?
