Press Statement on Eighth Public Release of NARA Records Concerning the 15 Boxes Received from Mar-a-Lago in January 2022
Media Alert · Wednesday, January 17, 2024

Washington, DC

Today, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is making its eighth release of documents processed in response to nearly 50 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests seeking NARA records related to the 15 boxes of materials we received from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property in January 2022. 

Today’s release consists of 247 pages of records that NARA initially withheld under FOIA Exemption (b)(5). NARA has re-reviewed the records and determined that we could release additional information.  Due to pending litigation, we are not able to offer additional comment on today’s release. NARA will notify the public if and when it determines it can make additional releases.
