Is it a violation of the Presidential Records Act for WH staffers to have privacy?
IDK, Would you have your hackles up if your boss did this to you? from politico: "staffers were told to dump their phones on a table for a “phone check," to prove they had nothing to hide. Spicer explicitly warned staffers that using texting apps like Confide — an encrypted and screenshot-protected messaging app that automatically deletes texts after they are sent — and Signal, another encrypted messaging system, was a violation of the Presidential Records Act, Is it a violation of the PRA?
Private communications by WH staff, like using a "rogue" Twitter or email with a private device, are not covered by the Presidential Records Act. Even using Confide and other related software products within the confines of the WH, is not covered. There's lots of case law and other decisions regarding these communications.
Just another distraction by Spicy (who still needs a nap).
This is general stuff. If the communication was with the Pres. or Vice pres it is covered. If the com. is about what a president says it is covered. But clearly it is not intended to be used as a basis for a search in general. But it could be.
