National Archives Still Missing Some Trump Administration Records
The National Archives has still not recovered all the presidential records that should have been turned over at the end of the Trump administration, according to a new letter to Congress from the acting archivist.
“We do know that we do not have custody of everything we should,” Debra Steidel Wall, acting archivist of the United States, said in her letter to Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., suggesting that former officials had still not turned over electronic messages of official business done on personal accounts.
Wall’s letter was a response to a Sept. 13 request from Maloney seeking an “urgent review” of “whether presidential records remain unaccounted for and potentially in the possession of the former president.”
Wall said the National Archives and Records Administration “would consult with the Department of Justice” on whether “to initiate an action for the recovery of records unlawfully removed.”
