In regards to former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger’s theft of classified documents from the National Archives: “The archives felt it had no choice but to notify the White House about what happened. On Sunday [October 5, 2003], the archives called the White House and asked to speak to someone at NSC [National Security Council]. An NSC lawyer provided the archives with the names of lawyers at the Justice Department who would need to be contacted about a criminal investigation of Berger. Berger had already called his own lawyer.”
