(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Happening Now: Just moments ago, it was confirmed that the United States National Archive has surrendered over 700 pages of former President Donald Trump’s presidential papers to the United States House of Representatives Select Committee that is investigating the January 6, 2021 assault on the United States Capitol.
According to CNBC:
“The select House committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot has received more than 700 pages of Trump White House documents that it had sought for the past several months, NBC News reported Friday.
“The panel received the records from the National Archives less than two days after the Supreme Court refused a request from former President Donald Trump to block their release.
“Trump had unsuccessfully argued in lower federal courts that he was entitled to keep the documents secret under executive privilege, which in certain cases allows presidents to prevent Congress from obtaining executive branch records.” [emphasis added]
It is unclear what is contained in the more than 700 pages of documents the National Archives has now surrendered under court order. Legal experts believe many of the papers will relate to communications by members of the Trump administration on and leading up to January 6, 2021, that may be relevant to the events that took place on that day.
This is a breaking news report.
