The National Archives missed Tuesday’s deadline to turn over requested documents to the House Oversight and Accountability Committee for his investigation in classified documents found in President Biden’s home and former office.
Driving the news: “The National Archives has not provided the requested records to the Committee at this time,” a spokesperson for the Committee told Axios. “Chairman Comer’s request still stands and plans to move forward with a transcribed interview with NARA’s General Counsel.”
- The National Archives did not immediately return Axios’ request for comment, but said it should consult with the Justice Department before sharing information.
Background: The Republican-led committee announced this month it was launching an investigation into the recovered documents and demanded information about “Biden’s failure to return highly classified documents from his tenure as vice president.”
