The team that tapes POTUS’s papers back together for legal preservation

A group of records management analysts in the Old Executive Office Building next to the White House has the most unusual assignment – taping together documents that President Donald Trump rips up as part of his unofficial “filing system.”

Armed with rolls of clear Scotch tape, Solomon Lartey and his team sift through large piles of shredded paper and put them back together, Lartey told Politico, “like a jigsaw puzzle.”

Sometimes the papers would be split down the middle, but other times they would be torn into pieces so small they looked like confetti, according to the Daily Mail.
