U.S. Congressional Panel Expands Probe Of Trump Documents

A U.S. Congressional Committee investigating Trump’s Removal of Classified Documents from the White House, to Trump's Mar-a-Lago, has expanded its probe of the Republican’s Handling of Records, according to a Letter made Public on Friday.

Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY, 12th District) and my Congresswoman, Chair of the House of Representatives Oversight Committee, wrote to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) asking for more Information about what she described as “what appear to be the largest scale violations of the presidential records act since its enactment.”

In a letter to David Ferriero, Archivist of the U.S., Maloney asked that NARA provide by March 10, Information including a Detailed Description of the Contents of 15 Boxes recovered from Trump’s Florida Home, and Information about any Records that Trump had Destroyed or attempted to Destroy.

The Letter, dated Feb. 24, also asked NARA to provide by March 17 Documents and Communications related to the use of Personal Messaging Accounts for Official Business by Officials in the Trump Administration, and if they were Transfered to the NARA.

The U.S. Presidential Records Act (PRA) requires the preservation of: Memos, Letters, Notes, Emails, Faxes, and other Written Communications related to a President’s Official Duties.

Some of the Documents taken to Trump’s Home, and subsequently Returned to the NARA, were Marked as different Levels of Classified, which could intensify the Legal pressure Trump or his Aides could face.
