IG: Park Service Did Not Change Records Of Crowd Size At Inauguration

"An Office of Inspector General report on the National Park Service (NPS) found that the agency did not change records on crowd sizes at the inauguration nor did its public affairs officials leak information to the press.

The report was generated after someone alleged, among other charges, that a National Mall official told employees to 'alter records related to crowd size estimates for the inauguration ceremony' and that two public affairs employees told the press about a phone call between President Trump and the park service's acting director, according to BuzzFeed.

'We did not find evidence to substantiate any of these allegations. All of the witnesses we interviewed denied that the [National Mall] official instructed staff to alter reports on the inauguration or to remove crowd size information,' the report said."
