White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that the Trump administration hasn’t reached out to suggest protecting any of the records and that they don’t have regular communication with former President Donald Trump or his team.
“I would say that we take this matter incredibly seriously. The president already concluded that it would not be appropriate to assert executive privilege,” Psaki said. “And so, we will respond promptly to these questions as they arise. And certainly, as they come up from Congress, and certainly we have been working closely with congressional committees and others as they work to get to the bottom of what happened on Jan. 6.”
