The National Security Council has informed conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch that materials regarding former National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s reported requests to identify “masked” U.S. persons in intelligence reports linked to President Donald Trump’s transition and campaign have been sent to Barack Obama’s presidential library outside of Chicago.

Rice, who served as a senior official during the Obama administration, had requested on several occasions the identities of U.S. persons associated with Trump whose identities were concealed, according to press reports from earlier this year.

Following the revelations, Judicial Watch sent a Freedom of Information Act request on April 4 for records concerning “any and all requests for information, analyses, summaries, assessments, transcripts, or similar records submitted to any intelligence community member agency or any official, employee, or representative thereof by … Rice” related to several issues.

Judicial Watch reported Monday that NSC Access Management Director John Powers responded to the FOIA request in a May 23 letter.
