National Archives officials missed a deadline set by the House Oversight Committee to turn over information related to President Joe Biden’s classified documents scandal in the first of what could become many attempts to slow-walk responses under the Biden administration.
House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) had asked the National Archives on Jan. 10 to provide information about its efforts to recover classified records found at Biden’s private office in Washington, D.C.
At the time Comer sent the letter, news reports had not yet revealed that Biden’s attorneys found even more classified documents at the president’s Wilmington, Delaware, home.
On Jan. 18, the National Archives cited Attorney General Merrick Garland’s appointment of a special counsel as a reason for a delayed response, saying the special counsel’s office would need to approve the exchange of information before it could proceed.
“The National Archives has not produced the requested documents to the Committee at this time. Chairman Comer’s request still stands and anticipates moving forward with a transcribed interview with NARA’s general counsel soon,” an Oversight Committee spokesperson said in a communication with the Washington Examiner.
NEW: National Archives did not meet the Tuesday deadline to turn over requested materials to the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability for its investigation into classified documents found in President Biden's home and former office. https://t.co/a8QWvqxQfy
