In his statement about the charges against Mr. Trump, Mr. Grassley said, “The law is the law, and it ought to be enforced regardless of which party is involved.”

He added that he believed the National Archives, at the time “was less inclined” to involve the Justice Department in the recovery of Mrs. Clinton’s emails.

“But now, after the Archives was able to recover presidential records, it seems to want to loop in the Justice Department,” he said.

Mrs. Clinton, he said, set up a “convenient arrangement” where she stored State Department communications on a private server, in violation of agency policy.

When asked about detailed news reports, Mr. Chaffetz said that this behavior did “not necessarily” constitute destroying records.

Several former Trump White House officials, who regularly attacked Mrs. Clinton, had nothing to say about Mr. Trump’s decision to take documents with him to Mar-a-Lago. »
