Republicans on the House Oversight Committee demanded Wednesday that the head of the National Archives and Records Administration explain any role her agency played in the FBI’s raid of former President Donald Trump’s home earlier this week.
Rep. James Comer, Kentucky Republican, and other GOP lawmakers on the panel called on Debra Wall, the acting archivist of the United States, to answer questions and preserve documents related to the search warrant executed at Mr. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
“Committee Republicans are concerned that the NARA would utilize the FBI to gather documents that the president by the very nature of his constitutional role could declassify himself, if this was indeed the case as the media reported,” the GOP lawmakers wrote in a letter to Ms. Wall.
The raid of Mr. Trump’s estate was spurred by a Justice Department investigation into 15 boxes that allegedly contained classified documents and national security information that were improperly sent to Mar-a-Lago instead of the National Archives.
Under federal law, presidents and their staff are required to send classified materials to the National Archives at the end of their term.
