Oh I think we're saying the same thing, and no one is suggesting that none of the comms from USSS on the devices in question were records. They're just using whatever they can to muddy the waters.Individual agencies are allowed to define policies but they all must be approved by the national archives. While the devices are wiped and re-imaged I'm sure, every one is still subject to federal records policy and if they weren't being checked for those records that's a violation of federal law as far as I can see.
Regardless, the idea that none of the communications of the secret service or senior officials in or around 1/6 were federal records beggars belief and I'm not aware of any policy that would permit them to be destroyed so quickly.
I 100% believe there is some cover up going on with this.
