The chairman of the committee, Rep. Carolyn Maloney, a New York Democrat, also requests in the letter that the National Archives and Records Administration, or NARA, request a “personal statement” from Trump that he handed over any presidential documents he “illegally removed.” of the White House.
“In light of the serious risk that Mr. Trump may continue to hold sensitive government records in Mar-a-Lago or its other properties, I urge NARA to request a personal statement from Donald Trump that he will hold all presidential submitted data that he illegally removed from the White House after leaving office,” Maloney wrote.
“I am also asking the agency to conduct an urgent review of presidential records recovered from the Trump White House to assess whether the presidential records are still unlisted and may be in the possession of the former president. she adds.
DailyExpertNews has contacted a Trump spokesperson.
On August 24, NARA officials informed the committee that, according to Maloney’s letter, the agency is not sure whether all presidential records are in its possession.
As a result, Maloney asks NARA not only to request a personal statement from Trump, in writing that he has turned in all presidential and classified materials, but also that he “made no copies or reproductions of such materials and did not transfer any data or government documents to any party other than NARA or DOJ since his term ended.”
The letter notes that former Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton expressed concern that the former president “may have transferred classified documents to other clubs, such as the Bedminster National Golf Club, where he recently hosted a sponsored professional golf tournament.” and attended by foreigners.”
