Trump Legal Team Calls for National Archives Docs

By    |   Monday, 20 March 2023 04:55 PM EDT

Former President Donald Trump's attorneys have filed a Freedom of Information Act request for documents from the National Archives and Records Administration that they say will "expose" the agency.

James Trusty, one of three attorneys representing Trump in the investigation into his alleged mishandling of classified documents, told Fox News Digital on Monday that they are "demanding documents that will expose NARA's completely different treatment of President Trump from every other president."

He added: "What we expect to find are highly-politicized bureaucrats who worked in tandem with DOJ and politicians to criminalize a dispute that never has had criminal implications. We're confident that a substantive response to our demands from NARA will firmly establish a different and politicized treatment of President Trump."

The request specifically states that it "covers records located at any office within NARA, including its Office of General Counsel, each of its field and regional offices, the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum, the George W. Bush Presidential Center, and the Obama Presidential Library."

The attorneys also request "any and all documents" linked to the "dispute-resolution process that NARA uses, or has used, to resolve disagreements with any of the Past Presidents and their Administrations, concerning the classification of records as Presidential records, personal records, agency records or otherwise."
