Lordy let there be a diary

So Hope Hicks appears to have kept a diary. Publishers are after her to write a book. Wonder if anyone with half a minute’s worth of government experience has told her that her diy kept at work is government property.

Dear Diary,

Today Impotus asked me to ........

💕💕💞❤️ Hope (and pray I don’t go to prison)

2. I'm hoping for books from both Hope and Omarosa coming out at the same time.

5. Most who work at high levels of government are going to keep a diary

This is true regardless of party affiliation. When you leave you just hand it over to your publisher and they churn out a revenue generating book for you. Nixon was lazy and kept tapes instead, which turned out to be his downfall.

6. I suspect those in a presidents circle with more experience dont keep detailed notes or diaries

that contain incriminating details as they know all written docs are not private but are government property. Or perhaps, like Reince they intentionally keep them as a record to try and prove they were not part the illegal/unethical behavior.

8. A diary isn't government property

Official correspondence is, but not things that are purely personal in nature. Even Nixon's tapes weren't considered government property even though he used government assets to obtain them. They had to be subpoenaed by a judge.

7. I find it interesting that even the idea of a diary was leaked

If true, Ms. Hicks, who for all her abominable taste in men, from boyfriends to father figures, is quite a bit smarter than I gave her credit for. She’s still an asshole of course.
