Some are noting that the copy of the State of the Union Speech President Trump handed to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was an official document, or public record. If so, Pelosi may have broken the law by tearing it up.
Specifically, it would seem to be a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2071.
I’m agnostic on the legal point, except in the observation that disregard for the law — disregard for the Constitution, in fact — appears to be a hallmark of today’s Democratic Party.
