Last month, Trump sued the national archives and the sham Jan 6th committee over an attempt by them to access Trump documents related to Jan 6th.
Trump sued the National Archives and the House committee last month, arguing that lawmakers’ subpoena for documents was invalid because the committee has no power of investigation and because Trump has asserted executive privilege over the records.
The White House, however, rejected Trump’s attempt to assert executive privilege. White House counsel Dana Remus has said the documents “shed light on events within the White House on and about January 6 and bear on the Select Committee’s need to understand the facts underlying the most serious attack on the operations of the Federal government since the Civil War.”
Now, we have this.
A federal judge has denied the attempt by Trump to block the records from being released to the sham Jan committee.
A federal judge denied a bid by former President Donald Trump to block the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol protests from accessing his documents from his White House records.
In a lawsuit filed last month, Trump argued that the materials sought by the committee were subject to executive privilege. In an emergency motion filed late Monday, the former president asked U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan to grant a stay in the case pending an appeal, which Chutkan called “premature” Tuesday.
The documents Trump was seeking to protect include telephone records, visitor logs and other documents that are currently held by the National Archives.
The National Archives and Records Administration is expected to hand over the documents to the committee on Friday, which Trump counsel Jesse Binnall argued in the emergency motion was “before judicial review is complete and before President Trump has had the opportunity to be fully and fairly heard.”
