Supreme Court Rules in Favor of J6 Committee Regarding Trump Records

Linkedin Share

Former President Donald Trump has run out of legal runway in his fight against the January 6th select committee.

Trump, who was President during the events of January 6th, has attempted to prevent the committee from gaining unfettered access to White House records from the days surrounding the attempted insurrection at the US Capitol.  He fears, likely from experience, that a wide berth within the committee would equate to nothing more than a “witch hunt” or “fishing expedition”, and that auxiliary information gleaned from these record requests could be used to foment perpetual probes into his presidency meant to stymy his presumed 2024 reelection bid.

This week saw the end of Trump’s ability to defend himself from the investigation’s White House-centric records requests.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday brought a formal end to former President Donald Trump’s request to block the release of White House records sought by the Democratic-led congressional panel investigating last year’s deadly attack on the Capitol by a mob of his supporters.

The court’s decision to formally reject Trump’s appeal follows its Jan. 19 order that led to the documents being handed over to the House of Representatives investigative committee by the federal agency that stores government and historical records.

The records requests were given life by current President Joe Biden, who denied Trump’s claims of executive privilege, despite there being ample examples of other former Presidents receiving such protections.
