The U.S. House Oversight Committee has asked the National Archives for more documents related to an investigation into whether former President Donald Trump mishandled federal records or broke federal records laws.

At issue is the fact that Trump took boxes of records to Florida with him after he left office and reportedly ripped up documents that were supposed to be saved.
