National Archives Under Scrutiny for Politicized Attack on Trump

FOIA-requested documents will 'expose NARA’s completely different treatment of President Trump from every other president...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) The National Archives and Records Adminisration has come under fire once more for its politically motivated attack on former president and 2024 Republican candidate Donald Trump, Fox News reported.

Trump’s legal team contended that the investigation into Trump, which began with an FBI raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, has been politically-charged from the beginning.

To gather evidence supporting such claims, attorney James Trusty–one of the attorneys representing Trump in the ongoing special counsel investigation, filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the National Archives earlier this week.

The lawyers specifically requested that NARA turn over its records and communications regarding the handling of the Trump case.

“This request 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 request stated.

Trump’s lawyers said NARA will be exposed as “rotten,” having inappropriately “criminal tools” to prosecute Trump.

His legal team also demanded information regarding the specific personnel who have handled the case internally, asking for information to be disclosed to “everyone who has touched this case.”

According to Trusty, he and his colleagues demanded that the National Archives provide “documents that will expose NARA’s completely different treatment of President Trump from every other president.”

The investigation, he argued, has been orchestrated by “highly-politicized bureaucrats who worked in tandem with DOJ” in order to “criminalize a dispute that never has had criminal implications.”

Trusty said that if the National Archives gives an honest response to the inquiry, it will be revealed that officials partook in a partisan conspiracy to undermine Trump under the guise of an objective investigation.

“We’re confident that a substantive response to our demands from NARA will firmly establish a different and politicized treatment of President Trump.”
