Trump’s legal team is now going on offense.
After playing defense for several weeks, Trump’s legal counsel is now going on the offensive and is demanding NARA (National Archives and records administration) to hand over records that will expose their alleged bias.
Trump’s attorneys filed a FOIA request which aims to expose NARA for their “unconstitutional and unprecedented weaponization of the Presidential Records Act.”
Attorney James Trusty told Fox News “the documents that will expose NARA’s completely different treatment of President Trump from every other president.”

Fox News broke the story exclusively:
President Trump’s legal team is demanding the National Archives and Records Administration turn over documents that they say will expose the “highly politicized” agency for attempting to criminalize a civil dispute over classified materials in an “unconstitutional and unprecedented weaponization of the Presidential Records Act.”
Attorneys representing the former president in the special counsel investigation into his alleged mishandling and improper retention of classified records – James Trusty, Lindsey Halligan and Evan Corcoran – filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) on Monday.
Trusty told Fox News Digital that attorneys are “demanding documents that will expose NARA’s completely different treatment of President Trump from every other president.”
“What we expect to find are highly-politicized bureaucrats who worked in tandem with DOJ and politicians to criminalize a dispute that never has had criminal implications,” Trusty said. “We’re confident that a substantive response to our demands from NARA will firmly establish a different and politicized treatment of President Trump.”

Here’s what the Blaze reported:
President Donald Trump is presently fighting legal battles on multiple fronts. While he prepares to mount defenses against what some have called a “patently political prosecution” in Manhattan and against accusations advanced by a Democrat prosecutor in Georgia, the legal team representing Trump in the classified documents saga is now going on offense.
Fox News Digital reported that the trio of attorneys representing Trump in the special counsel investigation into the presidential candidate’s handling and retention of allegedly classified records are now forcing the National Archives and Records Administration to show its hand.
