- In an extraordinary move, Donald Trump’s lawyers on Wednesday asked Congress to intervene in the dispute over classified documents, alleging the Justice Department has misled the courts and the public about how sensitive memos ended up at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
- The legal team led by attorney Timothy Parlatore sent a letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner and the Gang of Eight congressional leadership declaring the unprecedented FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago last August was unnecessary.
- Trump’s legal team also said the raid shielded Congress from being alerted to a lax National Archives Records Administration (NARA) security system that boxed up classified documents with mementos and shipped them to the Florida compound without regard to protecting national secrets.
