NOW: DOJ says the Trump administration will voluntarily give its assurance to not destroy records about Trump's and other officials' convos with foreign leaders — a judge yesterday strongly urged them to do this and avoid a messy legal fight buzzfeednews.com/article/zoetil…
According to DOJ, the administration today "instructed relevant personnel" to preserve six categories of info, including records of Trump's calls with foreign leaders, White House recordkeeping practices, and efforts to "claw back" or lock down documents buzzfeednews.com/article/zoetil…
Note this is a temporary assurance by the Trump admin that they'll preserve records — they agreed to do so while a judge decides whether to dismiss a lawsuit accusing the govt of violating federal recordkeeping laws re: Trump's and other officials' convos buzzfeednews.com/article/zoetil…
The govt's assurance today to preserve records about Trump's convos w/ foreign leaders (for now) moots a temporary restraining order request. The judge urged the govt to do this rather than risk a formal ruling that she said one side "might not appreciate" buzzfeednews.com/article/zoetil…
(Although there won't be an order from the court requiring the preservation of these records, there can certainly be consequences if a lawyer makes a representation like this to a judge and it turns out to be false)
