Former President Donald Trump has told the National Archives to grant journalist John Solomon access to non-public administration records, according to Solomon and a spokesperson for the former president.
Solomon said Trump specifically directed the Archives to give him access to documents related to the Russia probe that were declassified in the final days of his administration. And he said the Archives have been cooperative and accommodating.
“They’re great,” Solomon said. “They’re amazing people, and they have access to incredible crown jewels of history.”
Kash Patel, a former National Security Council official, has also been granted access. The Trump spokesperson said both men have officially been named NARA representatives.
Solomon, who founded an online publication called Just the News, has long been a favorite of conservative media figures and politicians. He has appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show countless times and worked closely with Rudy Giuliani associates on stories related to Ukraine and Hunter Biden, according to ProPublica.
