Emails Reveal Pre- Trump Discord with the National Archives

In a previous version of this article, Scott Gast and Michael Purpura's respective parts were reversed.

They are not Trump's personal attorneys, but rather two of the 

previous president's representatives to the National Archives.

The general counsel of the National Archives contacted 

three lawyers who had worked with former President Donald J. Trump

Trump less than four months after Mr.Trump left office with a stern message.

The archives had determined that more than twe dozen boxes of Mr. Trump's presidential records were missing.

It needed the lawyers' "immediate assistance” to retrieve them. The email was obtained by The New York Times.
