National Archives Rejects Trump Claim on Former Presidents' Records

This is in response to a criminal investigation by the DOJ

On Tuesday, the National Archives, the federal agency responsible for preserving U.S. government records, rejected former President Donald Trump's claim that his predecessors had retained "millions" of White House documents.

Trump faces a criminal investigation by the U.S. Justice Department into whether he illegally retained documents from the White House when he left office in January 2021 and whether he tried to obstruct the probe. The FBI seized roughly 11,000 documents during a court-approved search at his Florida home on August 8, including 100 marked "classified."

At a rally in Arizona on Sunday, Trump accused three former presidents - Republicans George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush and Democrat Bill Clinton - of taking millions of documents and storing them in un-secure locations, including a Chinese restaurant, a bowling alley and a car dealership.
