The National Archives said on Friday that some records from Donald Trump's White House are still not in its possession 

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is still missing Trump administration records that it sought after the former president's term ended, the agency said in a letter on Friday.

'The National Archives has confirmed to the Oversight Committee that they still have not received all presidential records from the Trump White House,' Acting Archivist Debra Steidel Wall said.

Wall said the Department of Justice (DOJ) would be consulted about whether 'to initiate an action for the recovery of records unlawfully removed' by White House officials.

She suggested the Trump administration ran afoul of the Presidential Records Act by using 'electronic messaging accounts that were not copied or forwarded into their official electronic messaging accounts.' 

It comes nearly two months after the FBI's unannounced search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago mansion prompted a firestorm of outrage from the right, with the vast majority of Republicans labeling it a political move.
