“It has been a long-standing practice for all White House records to be transferred under the supervision of the National Archives and Archives Administration at the end of each president’s term,” White House lawyer Dana Remus wrote in a letter to Chamber Supervision Committee Chair Carolyn Maloney. New York Democrat.
“As a result, NARA is the appropriate entity to address your application and must have archives relevant to your application; we do not have a depository of such records in the White House, “Remus wrote.
On March 25, Speakers of Parliament’s Democratic Commission sent letters requesting documents and communications from before, during and after the attack on the Capitol, from a wide range of individuals, including the White House, federal agencies, local law enforcement and House and Senate sergeants.

Then-President Trump spent the days before the January 6 rally, which came before the attack on the Capitol, urging his supporters to come to Washington as lawmakers prepared to vote to confirm the electoral count of Biden’s victory.
