Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT), which seeks to expose “the self-dealing and conflicts of interest, and the improper and illegal behavior of senior officials,” issued a statement on Friday demanding a probe into whether deletion of the tweet ran afoul of the Presidential Records Act (PRA), which prohibits the unauthorized destruction of government and presidential records.
“Enforcement of public records laws, such as FOIA, is virtually impossible if records retention policies are not enforced, including those covering social media,” Michael Chamberlain, PPT director, said in the statement.
