US to probe Trump's removal of White House records to Florida

The Post also cited a letter from the head of the House Oversight Committee to US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Thursday alleging that the department is interfering with lawmakers' probe over the 15 boxes of presidential records that included some documents marked "top secret."
