EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT, et al.,
Scott Armstrong may be an attorney for someone involved with the Scandal and was hoping that data on some of the tapes could clear his client or

More info and really the whole jist of the case against the goverment
Armstrong vs. Executive Office of the President of the United States
The Reagan Whitehouse and the National Security Council were found in violation of the Federal Records Act and that their records management practices
and E-mail (PROFS/OASIS) policies were "arbitrary and capricious." In the end, the Whitehouse lost control in establishing their own E-mail
management and retention policies.
NO mystery here, just your standard Govermental Bueacracy at work
