(RepublicanWire.org) – Moving as expeditiously as he could on Christmas Eve Eve, while most of the mainstream media had already headed out for a long holiday weekend, former President Donald J. Trump asked the United States Supreme Court to intervene and stop the United States House of Representatives Select Committee that is investigating what took place at the United States Capitol Complex on January 6th from obtaining records about his actions that day.
According to CNBC:
“Former President Donald Trump asked the Supreme Court on Thursday to block a demand for White House records from the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot by a mob of Trump supporters.
“The request came two weeks after two lower courts rejected Trump’s argument that the records are protected by executive privilege, a legal doctrine that allows some White House communications to be kept private.
“President Joe Biden had declined to invoke privilege over the disputed documents.” [emphasis added]
In addition to the filing with the Supreme Court, Trump issued a statement, saying, in part, “The people being persecuted by the January 6th Unselect Committee should simply tell the truth, that they are angry about the RIGGED Presidential Election of 2020…”
This is a breaking news report, and we will monitor the United States Supreme Court to see if they take up the case.
By law, the court is not required to accept Trump’s petition. However, legal experts and court watchers say they’d be surprised if the court didn’t take the case.
