The federal agency that stores records for presidential transition teams volunteered to provide documents to the FBI regarding the Trump presidential transition team in early 2017, in possible violation of an agreement with the Trump campaign to destroy the records, according to a Senate report released on Friday.
The report from Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security and Senate Finance Committees says that officials at the General Services Administration (GSA) contacted the FBI on Feb. 15, 2017 to inquire whether they should preserve documents related to Michael Flynn.
Flynn had just resigned as national security adviser due to fallout over phone calls he had with a Russian diplomat during the presidential transition period.
The FBI accepted the offer from GSA, according to the Senate report.
