We’ve known since the very beginning that the Trump administration has been nothing but a shit show, especially in regard to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. The report itself, even in all its redacted glory, outlines numerous instances of obstruction of justice by the president himself. The ONLY reason he’s not sitting in a jail cell for that this very moment is Bill Barr.

Each and every day lately, new information comes to light revealing the extent of corruption that is taking place within this administration. And now a former White House aide has disclosed that the White House likely destroyed a total of 5 boxes of emails that were supposed to have been turned over to Mueller as a part of his investigation.

Omarosa Manigault Newman who was a contestant on “The Apprentice” and previously worked for the White House transition and campaign was interviewed on MSNBC by the Rev. Al Sharpton today where she explained, “I think it’s important to realize that very early on in the administration, we got letters directing us to preserve all information related to the Mueller investigation, all investigations, any information, any emails, any correspondence. We had a clear directive to preserve those documents, preserve emails, preserve text messages.”


“So I thought it was very interesting that after my discussion with General Kelly in the Situation Room when I went to take my things, I was instructed that I had to leave seven boxes of documents that came from the campaign, the inauguration, the transition, and they would not allow me to get them,” she stated.

“What’s very curious to me is that, as I stated, it was seven boxes of documents, and in my emails, they only referenced two, which leads me to believe that they’ve destroyed the other five,” Newman said.

“So, you know, it’s par for the course with this administration. I believe I’m not the only one who’s been subjected to this type of treatment, and I believe that there are more documents that have been destroyed by this administration,” Omarosa continued. “If it happened to me, it’s happened to others.”

Sharpton was sure to clarify what Newton was saying by asking, “Let me be clear because I want to make sure I understand you. You say there was seven boxes, but they only referred to two? So are you suggesting that maybe they destroyed five boxes of emails that could have been evidence?”

“Oh, there’s no question,” Newton asserted.

“So we’ll have to see what unfolds. But I’m sure that I’m just not a one-off. I believe that this is a pattern with this administration of being disrespectful to congressional requests, of trying to use intimidation and all types of tactics to keep people silent,” the former aide concluded.

There is no question left in the minds of Americans — this entire administration is involved in possibly the most massive coverup this country has ever seen.
