White House: Assessing documents seized by Trump is an intelligence task

National Security Council strategic communications coordinator John Kirby said the White House is not interfering with the evaluation of documents seized from former President Donald Trump’s home in Florida.

Kirby denied White House involvement in the assessment of the documents and said, “The White House is not involved in the assessment that will be conducted by the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence regarding classified documents. the responsibility lies with Avril Hines, Director of National Intelligence of the United States.”

According to Politico, Hines sent a letter to US lawmakers promising that US intelligence would assess the national security risks associated with the disclosure of data contained in documents seized from Trump, and the US Department of Justice confirmed that the National Intelligence Agency is conducting an appropriate review.
