National Archives Requests DOJ Investigation of Classified Records Found at Trump’s Mar-a-Largo

President Trump

The National Archives and Records Administration is asking the Justice Department to investigate how former President Trump handled White House records. 

Trump took records marked as classified or “top secret” to Mar-a-Largo, The Washington Post reports.

After making the discovery, the National Archives collected 15 boxes of documents from Trump’s residence. 

The National Archives referred the matter to the Justice Department, but there’s no indication yet whether the FBI is investigating. 

Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich, in typical fashion, dismissed the discovery as “fake news.”

“It is clear that a normal and routine process is being weaponized by anonymous, politically motivated government sources to peddle Fake News,” Budowich said. “The only entity with the ability to credibly dispute this false reporting, the National Archives, is providing no comment.”

The Presidential Records Act requires memos, letters, notes, emails, faxes and other written communications to be preserved.

Homeland Security is warning local and state authorities that the truck blockade by Canadians protesting COVID-19 restrictions may target locations in the U.S., including the Super Bowl and State of the Union.  

In a bulletin to law enforcement agencies, the agency says it has received reports that truckers are planning to “potentially block roads in major metropolitan cities.”

The Super Bowl in Los Angeles is scheduled for Sunday, and the State of the Union address in Washington D.C. is on March 1. 

“DHS is tracking reports of a potential convoy that may be planning to travel to several U.S. cities,” an agency spokesperson told NPR. “We have not observed specific calls for violence within the United States associated with this convoy and are working closely with our federal, state and local partners to continuously assess the threat environment and keep our communities safe.”
