Former President Trump has reportedly chosen Mark Meadows, his former chief of staff, and the defense lawyers from his first impeachment case to handle requests for his White House records, according to reports.
While all outgoing presidents select representatives to handle administration records, the choices are notable as Trump heads into a second impeachment trial, Business Insider first reported.
Besides Meadows, the representatives include Pat Cipollone, former White House counsel; John Eisenberg, former National Security Council legal adviser; Steven Engel, who headed the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel; and Patrick Philbin, Scott Gast, and Michael Purpura, who all served as deputy White House counsels and defended Trump during his impeachment trial, the outlet reported, citing the National Archives press office.
"The people on this list were the same lawyers from the White House counsel's office who took extreme positions against Congress and refused to produce docs in the first impeachment," Neil Eggleston, former White House counsel in the Obama White House, told the outlet. "We can only hope that they'll recognize the duty of the administration to cooperate in the second."
