An ethics watchdog is suing the National Archives for withholding records, just days after demanding presidents and vice presidents hand over their records for classified materials.
Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT) has filed a ‘transparency lawsuit’ against the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) after asking for documents from acting archivist Debra Steidel Wall and any of her communications with the White House last August.
They have yet to receive a response, and have accused the Archives of double standards for demanding records from the past six administrations while failing to share their own.
