National Archives Will Not Share DOJ Trump Probe Information With Congress

The National Records and Archive Administration’s acting archivist, Debra Steidel Wall, said in a letter to Congress Thursday that her agency would not share any information with them regarding the Department of Justice probe into documents seized by the FBI from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

“I apologize if my response may not have been clear and thus caused confusion. My letter was not intended to deny the existence of such responsive documents or communications to Congress,” Steidel Wall wrote to House Committee on Oversight and Reform ranking member Rep. James Comer, R-Ky. “Rather, its intent instead was to convey to you that, as a general matter, the Department of Justice has requested that NARA not share or otherwise disclose to others information related to this matter at this time in order to protect the integrity of DOJ’s ongoing work.

“I also let you know that ‘NARA is preserving all records related to this matter.'”
