WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The commission investigating the September 11 attacks is trying to determine whether the Bush White House has released all the papers the panel requested from the Clinton administration's records.
Bruce Lindsey, who was President Clinton's deputy White House counsel, expressed concerns about the documents to the White House and the 9/11 commission in February, suggesting that the Bush staff may not have forwarded all the Clinton-era documents requested.
"The 9/11 commission is looking into it," said commission spokesman Al Felzenberg. (9/11 panel scours Clinton records)
"It may be a case where there may be duplicates," said Felzenberg.
"We could have requested more than was required.
"Right now, they're taking inventory, which should take about a day-and-a-half to figure out what they have and don't have," he said.
White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan said the White House "continues to cooperate with the 9/11 commission."
"Both the White House counsel and their 9/11 counterparts are discussing this and we expect this to be resolved very soon." said Felzenberg.
