“I write in response to your letter of February 9, 2022, in which you asked a number of questions relating to “the 15 boxes of presidential records that the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) recently recovered from former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence,” Ferriero wrote to Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., in a letter dated Friday. “Please see our responses to each of your questions.”

Maloney is the chairwoman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.

The fourth question addressed in the letter asked, “Are the contents of the boxes of records recovered by NARA undergoing a review to determine if they contain classified information? If so, who is conducting that review and has any classified information been found?”
