The director of the National Park Service Jonathan Jarvis, acknowledged to Congress that he spoke to the White House about closing the National Mall and the various monuments contained within the mall, including the Lincoln Memorial, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and the war memorials.

Appearing under subpoena at a joint House Oversight and House Natural Resources Committee hearing, Jarvis testified that the mall closures were necessary for safety and national security reasons, according to USA Today.

Under questioning from Rep. John Mica, R., Fla., Jarvis admitted that he discussed plans to close various monuments with the White House.

“Several times on the phone with the White House I presented with the Secretary my decision, but it was never the reverse,” Jarvis said.
