The US Supreme Court on Tuesday formally ended Trump’s effort to block White House records from being released to the sham January 6 committee.
The highest court of the land formally rejected Trump’s appeal after its order last month rejected Trump’s request to stop the National Archives from giving the House Select Committee probing January 6 hundreds of documents.
Trump previously asserted executive privilege over hundreds of pages of documents, but Joe Biden said the records should be released to Congress.
House lawyers argued the sham committee needs Trump’s records “to complete a thorough investigation into how the actions of the former president, his advisers, and other government officials may have contributed to the attack on Congress to impede the peaceful transfer of presidential power.”
Trump previously filed an application for stay with mandate and injunction pending review with the US Supreme Court after a 3-judge panel for the DC Circuit Court of Appeals rejected his effort to block the records.
The National Archives asked the Justice Department to investigate Trump’s handling of White House records after it ‘raided’ Mar-a-Lago and retrieved 15 White House record boxes.
